As a blogger, I get a chance to meet lots of cool people and attend fun events. Occasionally I will get off into a sidebar conversation that leaves me thinking about it days later. That’s exactly what happened last week during my interview with one of Mississippi’s emerging hip hop artists, Silas.
We were talking about his name change (he first introduced himself to the music world as Trey Parker) and what made him do it after using his former stage name for so long. In so many words, he basically said that he wanted to just be himself and not feel that he had to live up to the expectations of who people thought he should be. I couldn’t have agreed more.
