Raleigh, NC underground hip-hop artist and poet Lena Jackson releases new music titled "End of the Tunnel". Primarily born and raised in a poverty stricken area, Lena grew up with music as her focal point of comfort, with writing as her therapy.
Jackson started penning poetry as a child, but later became intrigued by cypher sessions she would see in school cafeterias in her early teens. She eventually learned to interchange poetry stanzas for rap bars, and found pleasure in both spoken word and cypher rapping. Her influences include Nas, MC Lyte, Outkast, Missy Elliot, and Bone Thugs & Harmony.
