The journey began for Eddy Lamarre, the lyricist who would become Precise. Chicago native Precise developed his skills from his experiences as a child attending his father’s band rehearsals. His father was guitarist and saxophonist in a local band. “Growing up in a Haitian household, music was always prevalent,” Precise recalls.
He started off as a DJ but always knew he wanted to rap. After competing in a talent show at Olive Harvey College in Chicago, the judges Producer/DJ Terry Hunter and Armando gave him great feedback. These comments gave Precise the encouragement and confidence to pursue his dream. Upon meeting aspiring artists Chris Rice a.k.a. “Ideal” and Victor Moore a.k.a. "Creole", they formed the group Nubearth. As a group, Nubearth toured in Chicago and regionally. They had the opportunity and memorable experience of opening for Common at Northern Illinois University.
This preparation was building Precise the ability to express himself musically, lyrically and command the stage. The stage is a natural setting for him to entertain and perform, the messages through all of these experiences. Precise’s influences range from hip-hop legends KRS-One, Rakim, Slick Rick, Black thought of The Roots, Guru of Gangstar and Mos Def were instrumental in shaping Precise’s style as a lyricist. “I would describe my rap style lyrical substance drawing from the original blueprint of the hip-hop culture,” Precise states.
Besides, hip-hop Precise also attributes musical greats as Sting, George Benson, U2 and Gangstar. Precise selected his name from Gangstar's single “Precisely The Right Rhyme”.
After being featured on a children’s educational CD “Mind Games”. He completed his first solo project titled My Life. The lead single “It’s On Me” off of the upcoming release of the same name, has an uptempo old-school feel that has become popular among DJ’s domestically and internationally.
In 2014 he released "Ladies Love Mixtapes" a project focused on relationships. It was recognized by the Chicago Reader as one of the best projects of the year.
“My belief in God and knowing that he has given me a gift to share with the world has helped to overcome that doubt. I have no fear.” - Precise

We have the ability to move mountains and walk in water. It’s important that we incorporate a few things.
New King James Version
23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
Tap into the spirit that gives life to this world and blesses you with breath everyday. The spirit of God lives in each and everyone of our cells and should be honored and glorified. It is through this spirit that we are able to accomplish anything we set our minds to do.
New International Version
11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead(A) is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies(B) because of[a] his Spirit who lives in you.
