M16 & The Full Moon Wolves
M16 & The Full Moon Wolves
Just when you thought music had lost its originality…that every rapper and band were beginning to sound the same…that artists have forgotten how to be performers and cast you under their spell with their undeniable talent, a new era of music has surfaced that will not only leave you spellbound and awestruck, but grateful that true artists still do exist and get that they have a responsibility to create and show others how to live life to its fullest. M16 & The Full Moon Wolves is a phenomenon that believes in and promotes whole-heartedly the expression of one's own identity and personality.
M16 & The Full Moon Wolves convenes from different walks of life. The band emits a blended feel of Linkin Park, Limp Bisket, and Kid Rock, while the vocal delivery is an uncanny yet pleasant mixture of DMX, Mystical, Ja Rule, Lenny Kravitz and Busta Rhymes, all combining to create the ever-present kinetic energy of the Black Eye Peas. This formula brings about a funky, grooving, Hip-Hop sound with a rock infusion. Who are M16 & The Full Moon Wolves? Metaphorically, a full moon wolf is a werewolf.
