About A Cultivator aka The Buddhist Rapper
The Buddhist Rapper’s lyricism delivers a message that all conscious people will relate to but for all the rhymes about positivity and enlightenment, A Cultivator can still invoke the intensity from his earlier rap style when he attacks the corrupted values of popular culture. Along with redefining the boundaries of hip hop, A Cultivator is also trying to break the stereotypes that many people have of Buddhists. The idea of a soft spoken monk meditating in robes doesn’t apply here because A Cultivator is basically the exact opposite of that; except, of course, for the fact that they both share the same sincere devotion for following the Buddha’s teachings.
A Cultivator is just starting to get his name out but he has already earned the praise of one of the most respected audio engineers/producers, Bob Bassy, who has mixed albums that have sold more than 100 million copies, including artists such as Notorious B.I.G. And Tupac. Bob Bassy had this to say: “A Cultvator is a newcomer on the scene from Northern California. Certified beats, great delivery, and keen, thoughtful lyrics I think will make him a contender. Doesn’t hurt that he’s a Buddhist and rapping about Peace, though you would never know from the fat production…Think a white Kanye meets the Dalai Lama”
