Born and raised on the east side of Las Vegas, Nevada, rapper, actor, and songwriter Adam Hicks grew up in hip-hop culture. Hicks started battle-rapping on the radio at the age of ten and won a contest competing among rappers who were in their twenties. His disarming rap style and imposing talent for vivid lyrical phrases soon gained him notoriety in his hometown, where there was an increasing demand for his tracks.
Hicks progressed into writing lyrical songs and started working with Disney and ABC as a writer for several tracks for many of their shows in his late teens. Hicks is most known for starring in the hit TV movie sensation "Lemonade Mouth," where he co-wrote and performed the songs "Determinate," "Breakthrough," and "Livin' on a High Wire." In his early twenties, Hicks broke away from Disney and began making music that projected his talent as a seasoned rapper. After a run-in with the law at the age of 25, Hicks fought a case for a few years and, while incarcerated, wrote dozens of new songs. Following his release, he is concentrating on creating new music and making a name for himself in hip-hop.
Through his music, Hicks hopes to express his struggles and talk about his life experiences, which he believes will help him connect with his supporters on a deeper level than ever before. He is committed to using his platform to create change in the justice system and be an advocate for mental health.
