SHOWTBODE STAKKS: I just love all genres of music. I am a beat person, if you got a good beat you got my all around attention. I listen to lyrics also. If you trying to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and all you have is the jelly then it won’t work. So that is what I keep in mind with my music. I want my listeners to have the whole thing and that’s what I like in the artist I listen to.
