The past year alone has been madness for Black Liquid and his team who has opened for Bone Thugs N Harmony, Snoop Dogg, Icon The Mic King, Doodlebug, Band Belief, and Photosynthesizers, killing 50 other shows all around Richmond Virginia as well as in North Carolina & Washington D.C.
Black Liquid has a video up on VladTV that is currently over 16,000 views, he has made it to the final round of DJ Fahrenheit’s (Young Jeezy‘s DJ) Making The Next Hit (grand prize = $100,000 Def Jam/CTE production deal), he has dropped a FREE CD every month since march, all the while doing 2 radio shows on 2 different radio stations, WRIR 97.3FM & WDCE 90.1FM, every week. for him its always been about integrity, finding a clear path of expression, and he intends to follow this through whole heartedly.

If someone were to meet Black Liquid today, they would probably think that he was just another ordinary person. A man working to make a living for himself and his family. Everyday he goes to work, what he refers to as “slavery” and likes to dedicate what limited free time he has to video games. Based on this description or first impression of Black Liq, one would never know that he could easily be considered the hardest working unsigned artist in the state of Virginia.
It is Black Liquid’s time management skills and self-discipline that separates him from the other artists in his region. Outside of his full-time job he manages and hosts two independent radio shows in the city. His show ‘Hip Hop For The Rest Of Us’ on WRIR 97.3 FM has grown very popular and landed him a permanent spot at the station. He also DJ’s at WDCE 90.1 FM, a station on the campus of University of Richmond, where he hosts ‘Hip Hop 101.’ Both stations stream live from their respective websites as well, Although, they are nighttime programs their following has grown tremendously over the past year.
It is opportunities like the ones presented at the radio stations that Black Liq uses to his full advantage and to the benefit of others. The two radio shows not only spin his records, but also give many of the talent in Virginia an opportunity to hear their music over the air. Black believes that every artist deserves to shine and by helping his fellow members of the craft, he is building synergy amongst its students. He plans on continuing to host his radio shows and hopes to get some big name rappers to one day co-host the show alongside him.
Black Liq is definitely not lazy when it comes to his music either. Even though all his music is free, he puts just as much time and effort into his projects as an artist signed to G.O.O.D Music or Def Jam Records would. His only objective, with each free release, is to get more and more people to listen to his message. For Black Liq, nothing else matters but being heard.
