Who Am I?
My legal name is Brent Lopez. My stage name, Binx Lopez. I am 24 years old and I am an up and coming Inspirational Rap Artist based out of Omaha, Nebraska. Growing up I have seen many things. I have been a ranking member of an organized gang. I have sold almost every drug there is and have hurt a lot of innocent or undeserving people. I have been writing poetry and rap songs since I was incarcerated my first time when I was twelve. Since then there has been so many times I should have been sent to prison, killed, or even caught aids, but none of those things happened to me. For some reason the lord has kept me alive and has given me chance after chance. I have always believed in myself and knew I could accomplish anything I put my mind to. The problem was I believed in street life and loyalty to the wrong people. I first started taking music seriously as the result of a Federal Investigation that lead to the arrests of every close friend I had, and also, my drug sources. I took the remaining amount of money I had and spent it on studio equipment as an understanding that my career as a drug dealer was over. From the very first song I knew and understood the talent I possessed, and how I now had an opportunity to let people know that I exist in a positive way. I tell story’s of my life in my music that I believe can inspire and touch people from any age, any gender, and any race. I have since done many performances in many different places around the country and have had the help of radio stations along the way.
The reaction I get is always the same. People tell me I have a gift, I think so too. I have been dealt a bad hand in life, but have already proven that anybody can change and anything is possible if you set your mind to it. The last four years of my life has been dedicated to two things, reaching for my dreams, and telling people that they should do the same. I now run a program for at risk youth in Detention Centers and Schools. Now I know why I’m still alive and out of prison. God put me on this earth to write hits and collect dreams…. When I put them together it looks like this-
