The Charles Dickens of Disco
True & Honest Fan
His actual last name is "Hernandez," and he was originally from Honolulu. Plus, his mother looked like she was Pacific Islander (I could do more research, but, come on), so his racial heritage is all over the place.Wait, he's not black?
Anyway, as a person whose job subjects me to having to listen to Hot AC and Top 40 music (and now you begin to understand why I'm seemingly pissed off all the time): here's the deal - his music is exponentially better than just about 90% of all black artists out there because his music is actually musical. Yeah, his stuff may not be your favorite, but it is leagues above the mealy-mouthed mumble rap being played over a beat about as sharp as warm oatmeal.
