Wydeframe was born as Christopher Kesee in Vernon, Texas. He cites as his main artistic influences, legends of the mic such as Pimp C., the Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, Scarface, and Bun B. His style draws from both the East Coast and Dirty South hip-hop scenes, but with his own, cutting-edge style. Asked to comment on his new single, Wydeframe states, “’Live Young, Die Rich’ shares with my listeners a Relentless Hustler’s ambition to enjoy life now, stay young, and work hard to die rich.”

‘Live Young, Die Rich’ is excellent, featuring clever autobiographical lyrics and stellar musical production. I became interested in Wydeframe after observing his skills. You can understand him. He has a very crisp and sharp delivery, with great musicality. He also has a fresh sense of rapping that most artists don’t have!

Wydeframe is different from the rest of the young rappers who just try to exclusively produce club bangers; over above the beat and groove, which will have you nodding all the way through your ride, Wydeframe gives his music both hip hop and soul. 

Lately hip-hop has gone pop, with artists coming out and being hyped up, only to release a single and then fade to black. And there are none good enough to really catch your ear for long enough. Except Wydeframe. Forget street cred, getting shot 100 times, or being east coast, west coast, north, or south, this guy has none of that…and yet he has all of that. He’s simply a great lyricist who has a great flow, and chooses beats that really fit his style.

Wydeframe is someone who relies on his skills as an artist to keep people interested, rather than starting fake beef to sell music. He’s offering something great to hip hop, by delivering intelligent and fresh rhymes, rather than living off of some long forgotten street reputation that is most likely fabricated beyond recognition. Wydeframe can make a club banger or slow it down and still have it hit hard. Exactly what he does on ‘Live Young, Die Rich’!
