Railz the Principle
Railz the Principle
Equipped with a positive vibe and a good head on his shoulder, no one shows more promise than Railz The Principle. Born Malcolm Crosland July 5, 1990 in Long Island, New York to a family originating from the Bronx. Growing up in a unfortunate but yet typical broken home setting where his father was absent for a majority of his childhood will never be use out of context by the rising artist, in fact he grants permission to the listeners allowing himself to be placed under a microscope with his music admitting his strengths, weaknesses, and insecurities which he feels is much needed in the rap world. "It bothers me how some rappers put themselves out to be these perfect, everything goes my way all the time invincible individuals". With that being said the name "The Principle" comes with a lot of responsibility both musically and morally. The name is a constant reminder to never bend no matter how great the pressures of the world becomes and just always live by your principles in life, which is a lot easier said then done. "I always felt it was a lot harder to stand out then it is to fit in when it comes to dealing with all the judgement now a days. People find it easier to just fit in, these people in my mind had very weak legs support under there principles and I refuse to be one of them". Strong words can only truly gain meaning with a even stronger foundation behind them so the mission at hand for Railz The Principle is to simply start building from ground up.
