Recent Project “Self”
North Carolina native Eugenius is a rapper, producer, recording engineer and songwriter. Born Timothy Eugene Peterson to a preacher and a playwright, he ironically suffered from stage fright for most of his childhood. As a young teenager, he found comfort in freestyle rapping which eventually led him to begin writing music. Soon after, he began to develop his skills in production and recording. Drawing inspiration from his faith and his life experiences, he dropped his first mixtape entitled By Myself in 2014. A collaboration EP and a group mixtape later, he began the unorthodox release of his narrative-based debut album Self in 2017, which he divided up in parts and dropped months apart from each other. Self is due to be fully released in 2018. He’s released multiple projects and performed on multiple stages, but his message and his intention have remained the same: to entertain, to inspire and to reach the lost.
