"It just comes naturally." This phrase has been used to describe some of the world's greatest entertainers, athletes, comedians, and writers. "Gifted" definitely falls into this category. With his vivid lyrics, witty punch lines and uncanny ability to create a "hook" at a moments notice, Gifted is a born natural. After enduring numerous hardships, Gifted would join with A.D. the General to create N.A.N., a rap duo, that is destined to change the way that hip hop is done in 2011. Gifted is looking forward to proving his haters wrong, through hard work, perseverance, dedication, determination, and a willingness to achieve, and he's well on his way. "The Natural" has arrived.
