    The Definition of Hustle. I’ve had the opportunity to personally witness Creature on his grind. No phony shit for the cameras this guy is really out in theses ny streets getting his music to as many people as possible. Truly inspiring to see an Artist live off what they love.

    This man is the epitome of GRIND. It is an honor to know him and I hope that some day I can be one of the artists he can list as a collaborator. I grind and hustle hard on the daily too, but every time I see Creature and get to talk to him I learn something new. Every time I have seen him his book has been sold out. I had the chance to purchase his book “The Underdog Manifesto” 2 days ago when we were on a panel together at the RE/Mixed Media Festival in Brooklyn. It is an incredible, down to earth and priceless piece of inspiration for any independent artist to have. If you don’t have it, GET IT!
