Born and raised in Providence, RI. Sincere (Enrique Lopez) grew up in the Silver Lake/Hartford section of "The Ocean State". Coming up, Sincere grew to the sounds of emcees such as Nas, Big Pun, Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Kurtis Blow, Run DMC, Rakim, and many others from Hip-Hop's 80's/90's era but he cites the 90's to be the era in Hip-Hop that mainly influenced his music. Sincere was introduced to Hip-Hop culture at an early age by his younger uncle who at the time would take him to street cyphers and bump many 90's classics on his boombox on their walks there. At the age of 13, Sincere started emceeing and recording songs along with his cousin who is the son of former Hot 106 DJ, Eddie Santiago. With his outspoken lyrics and anti-commercialism messages, Sincere creates music influenced by what inspired him to become an emcee and brings back a focus on lyrics which has been ignored in recent years due to commercialism in the music industry. Fusing his lyrical abilities and inspirations, Sincere is truly one emcee that is keeping Hip-Hop alive.
