Born Edmund Holmes, Buddha was born and raised in Georgetown, South Carolina. The oldest of three
brothers, he was raised in a single parent home with his mother. For many years they struggled, and for
a while had to live in a “trap house”. Buddha’s mother was a hustler, and did what she could to take care of her kids. Due to their environment, there were several occasions when the police would kick
their door in with guns drawn. Needless to say, Buddha and his brothers had a rough upbringing. The streets raised him, and taught him how to be the hustler he is today.
While enduring a rough childhood, when Buddha entered his teens he found solace in music. He
discovered that he had the talent, but with the distractions of life, he never took it seriously. Once Buddha became an adult, he got blessed with two children, and from his environment, became a natural
born hustler. Buddha learned from the streets that you gotta hustle to eat, and take care of your family. His hustling eventually caught up with him, and in 2013 he was arrested on a federal charge for drug
conspiracy. While serving time, Buddha was able to refocus and tap back into music. After serving five years, he perfected his craft, and was set on making a name for himself once he was released.
"Run It Up"
Now fresh out of the pen, Buddha is diving head first in the music game, ready to solidify his position
amongst the majors. He released his new single, “Run It Up”, featuring Boosie Badazz, and his streams
immediately took off! He’s now one of the most sought after newcomers in the game. He recently shot
the official video, and will be releasing his debut mixtape in March 2019. Buddha has an impeccable
work ethic and the talent to take him far in the industry. He is one artist that will be talked about, and
especially recognized in his state for years to come.
"It's Up From Here"
Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction

talent out of the South ready to showcase his music to the world. Hailing from South Carolina, Buddha
has been working hard to accomplish his goals and is ready to show and prove. We will soon be graced
with a new, refreshing raw talent that’s sure to capture the attention of many.
