Raised by New-School hip hop and being heavily influenced by Old-School legends has not only shaped his talent, it has changed his lyrical content. As a Christian in a predominately non-Christian industry, Skrypt is driven to provide quality music and authenticity. Born and raised in Namibia, he was brought up well and did not have much suffering as a kid, but he was around a lot of it. That shaped my thinking and eventually led me to mix my love of music with the empathy that grew from my surroundings. December 2007 Skrypt moved to Vienna, Austria for high school and eventually met Hermann Kratochwill who was starting 22 Entertainment.
