Creed does it 'For Love'
Born in Guam, the rapper also known as Kristopher Rojas returned to Honolulu last year with a new label, Rising Sons Independent, that he started with fellow artist Klarke "Grip H" Castellanos. "Interlude" and "Life Goes" were released in the second half of 2014 in support of Creed and Grip H's collaboration project, Kristopher Klarke.
Nearly a decade after Creed released his solo debut, "Defy," which marked his transition from pure battle MC to a full-fledged recording artist, he continues to create and put out original music for fans both in Hawaii and abroad. Last month, he was the featured local opening act for hip-hop heavyweight Ghostface Killah of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan.
Creed's latest single, "For Love," is "all about riding through the town and having a beauty by your side to top off the end of the night," according to a press release. The track features production by Madlib (the beat was originally used by Indiana-bred rapper Freddie Gibbs) and "compliments (sic) Creed's verbal array of lyrical cadence and catchy one-liners."
