My name is Ryan Lucas. I am a music producer from Washington DC, who lives in Los Angeles, CA. I create music to shed light on the pleasure and pain that comes with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is my hope that these thoughts and musings encourage you to seek only the best that life has to offer and recognize the power within yourself to be the change the world is looking for. I am influenced by creatives such as Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye, Dick Gregory, Bill Withers, KRS-One, Mos Def, Common, Q-Tip, Black Thought, J Dilla, Kev Brown, Oddisee, Black Milk, Black Spade, 9th Wonder, Phonte, Pharrell Williams & Ab Abernathy. I invite you to check out my music videos and music releases on this site. You can support the movement by purchasing from my store www.ryanlucasdc.com.
