"Buffalo Black is an unprecedented synergy of soul, expressionism, & lyricism, unlike any previous rapper or performing artist to date. Born & bred in the inner city of Dallas, Texas, Buffalo is a 5 year veteran & an alumni of the University of North Texas. With one listen, you discover why Buffalo Black is one the best kept secrets in hip-hop from a lyrical & visual perspective. He not only continues to push the envelope artistically, but he shines a light on modern issues in a progressive manner. He incorporates cinematic elements with his story-telling while soulfully weaving lyricism with righteous fervor.

On February 13th of 2015, Spike Lee released, "Da Sweet Blood of Jesus", by which Buffalo Black scored a major placement with his record "Enter The Void" from his debut LP "Buffalo Black LP". The record is not only featured in the film but was released on the soundtrack distributed by EPIC Records & soon became a fan favorite of Vice Magazine online when reviewing the film.

This playlist is a reflection of the energy & attitudes I’ve been on so far this year. There are some tracks that’ll make you jump, think, & love someone all at the same time.

His song, "1984" & latest album "Surrilla", garnered attention in national outlets such as 2dopeboyz, DJBooth, & Hip Hop DX, while being nominated as, "Best Song", "Best Music Video," & "Best Hip-Hop Act" at the 2015 Dallas Observer Music Awards. In 2016, the artist won again in the "Best Songwriter" category. Buffalo Black has been billed with such prominent Acts as GZA, Mos Def, D.O.C. Kool Keith, Rakim, Ty Dolla Signs, Living Colour, Jose James, Doomtree, Young Fathers, Isaiah Rashad, Bishop Nehru, & more." Most recently, he released, "Be Like Water", a powerful piece that emphasizes his ability to flow & apply his style behind diverse, vivid audio landscapes.
