While many artists take a vigorous approach to landing a record deal, some acts subscribe to an "if you build it, they will come" philosophy. For L.A.′s new rising R&B star, Antoine Carter, the latter method has proved a welcome fit. "I believe real success is finding your lifework in the work that you love". Antoine is extremely passionate and determined to make a better life for himself, his family, and his comrades through his music. "I′m not scared of anything so I will never back down. My commitment to hip–hop culture is endless."
Born In Canton, Ohio and raised in the bay area of California, Antoine′s talents were introduced to him through his mother and father who were also aspiring artists and musicians. They frequently toured and performed with such artists known as the OJ′s, Whispers and Larry Graham of "Sly and The Family Stone". Antoine was seven years old when artists such as Prince, Michael Jackson, Run DMC, Slick Rick, and LL Cool J sparked his interests in music. "Once I got a little older, my r&b/hip–hop inspirations came from R–Kelly, Gerald Levert, Babyface, Tupac, and Outkasts."
It was at PIER 39, San Francisco′s premiere bay attraction, which initiated a lifelong interest in the entertainment industry. "I made one hundred dollars break dancing in less than one hour. That day I fell in luv with hip hop!" After grinding in the streets and doing what he had to do to build his credibility, the Bay Area/Ohio–bred artist finally got his chance to shine through the support of Pro Music Records.
