B-Light: Hip-Hop Artist & Music Producer – Episode 40

“While there may be an abundance of darkness, it is both mine and your personal duty to assume the role as a beacon of light in such obscurity. I must be light.” These wise words are from Bobby Edjamian, an up-and-coming hip-hop artist from New York otherwise known as B-Light. Today we talk to Bobby about his journey in the music industry, we discuss his debut full-length album ‘Champion’, we talk about why bringing positivity and social awareness in his music is so important to him and he explains his upcoming plans for touring, new music and producing in 2019.
