Charlie Thrush is the New York rapper with an authentic sound that stays true to his Bronx upbringing. Born of Jamaican descent, the 24-year-old aspiring artist is here to make it known that he is serious and hungry about his music.
Similar to most young kids growing up in the Bronx, Thrush has experienced a fair share of struggle, including the loss of his father in 2006, which ultimately drew him closer to rap, as it became a means for him to express himself.
Thrush attributes his love for performing to Drake and Fabolous, who provided him an opportunity to open up for them at Long Island University. As a lyricist, Thrush believes he stands out from his peers because of his use of metaphor and simile to convey a story.
His latest song, “F Beal” was inspired by his former high school Varsity basketball coach Mr. Beal who put the team through a lot of strife. Beal is ultimately used to describe a hater in your life that tries to keep you back from your end goal.
