Randall J Stevenson, better known as Impact, is an American rapper/ R&B singer based out of North Carolina. Known for his versatile rhyme flow and melodic and soulful harmonies, Impact brings a heartbeat to music, reminiscent of Slum-Village and Kendrick Lamar, mixed with a 70s-80s R&B vibe.
Impact has been writing poems and music since the tender age of 7. Impact was initially inspired to be an artist when he heard LL Cool J's “Im Bad” and decided to pursue his dreams to become an artist when no one in his city could beat him in a MC battle. Impact also lists inspirations as Marvin Gaye, El Debarge, Nas and Herbie Handcock, to name a few and has had the opportunity to not only work with his Idol Nas on his first EP “The Reset” album, but he also produced for Cartoon Networks Adult Swim. Impact is aiming to influence through soulful reminiscent frequencies, and wants to move others to find the missing heartbeat in music and not be a follower.
Impact is currently working on an R&B album Titled “ When April Meets May” due to release the end of April 2017. Be on the lookout for more from this talented artist.
