CP Da Ruler is a hip hop artist from Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. He acknowledges that many famous people from Coney Island grew up to become ball players, such as Lance Stephenson and Stephon Marbury. Most legendary hip hop artists stemming from Brooklyn were raised in neighborhoods outside of Coney Island; therefore, CP intends to be one of the first well-renowned hip hop artists from his area.
CP describes himself as a rapper who primarily discusses growing up in poverty and daily life struggles in his lyrical content. As someone who overcame a tough situation during adolescence, CP has also been exposed to some of the finer things in life. CP believes it is important for him to rap about the struggle and to rap about wearing stylish clothing while driving luxury vehicles. The versatility in lyrical content establishes the dynamic nature of an artist, and CP feels empowered in his ability to recount personal prosperity.
CP explains that he is actually the youngest male child on his mother’s side of the family. The mixed familial structure that CP was raised in caused his family members to fail to always see eye to eye. Regardless, CP has been able to bring all of his family members together at shows so they could see him perform. He claims that these are some of his proudest moments because family is extremely important to him, and it is the most efficient way to bring all of his family members together without there being too many problems.
Aside from bringing his family together, CP has also experienced many other empowering moments from making music. He has met with Success, the vice president of the A&R department at Atlantic Records. CP has a strong relationship with Empire and is permitted to release his music through its distribution company. He has also released a song titled “Ms. Parker,” which features Jaquae from “Love & Hip Hop and Trenches ft Lougotcash who is an artist affiliated with Republic Records.”
CP states that he is half Haitian and half American. Many of CP’s family members were actually born in Haiti and then immigrated to America. CP is thus a first generation American citizen. He vows to one day make a difference for somebody that is less fortunate by developing various charities in Haiti.
