So who is Why A? A 22 year old hip hop artist who has loved the genre and has been writing since 12 years old. At 21, Why A (Alex Stepp) gave up everything he had and left his small-town suburban world to Los Angeles CA to chase his dream of becoming a successful hip hop artist. He started out homeless and worked his way up by getting a job and eventually a place to stay and enough money to record. This ambition driven gritty artist definitely has a lot to offer with his go hard lyrics and catchy versatile flows.
