Cole, Busta Rhymes, Kendrick Lamar, Ne-Yo, LL Cool J, and Salt-n-Pepa as some of his biggest influences, only aspires to follow in those same giant footsteps.

His video, “Finished” gives a glimpse of what you can expect from this superstar as well as his live performances giving the audience nothing but his best. Amen-Ra takes you on a journey with relatable music and tracks to uplift you. A man who believes that failure is not an option, is on the road to achieving another dream; to sing. Proving to us all, no dream is intangible, no dream is too small. Failure is not an option.
"My style is inspirational; I want you to feel alive, and have fun in the moment because life is too short," the muscle bound ex-football standout makes quite clear. Re-iterating, He concludes sounding confident yet not at all conceited, "I feel like I can give a connection that is mad real. It's like a connection to everyday life of who we are. I plan to be a whole different type of animal. I want to make this a better world for future generations; I want to inspire and be inspired. I want to enjoy life, and see others enjoy life too."
