Music is my essence. As a
kid I used to listen to old 45’s with my pops, everything from
Marvin Gaye to Oscar de Leon. It’s only natural that I mixed
my love for music and a love for my people to create my own
brand of hip-hop. Politics and the collective community
consciousness have always been of utmost importance to me.
I’ve always been the go to guy for hip-hop. In high school, I
staged battles at lunch time with special permission from the
security guards and principal. I was the only one with Tony
Touch’s 50 MC’s mixtape so I hooked everyone up. I remember I
got my hands on Nas’ “I Am” 2 months before it dropped and
hooked my whole school up. I always wanted to be that dude.
I’m the cat who will argue hip-hop all day everyday with
anyone who will listen. I started DJing at 13 and began
writing lyrics casually later throughout high school.
In college I hosted my own hip-hop radio show for a few years
and kept DJing as well. The college I went to taught me a lot
because of the disproportionate racial demographics at the
school and the inequality in the surrounding community. I love
the time I spent at Salisbury University because it showed me
the real United States . As I began to learn more about
politics, history and modern day problems that plague our
community like poverty, mis-education and racism, I began to
really come full circle with my lyrics and music. I started
performing, battling and speaking out more and more. By the
time I graduated I had performed up and down Maryland ’s
Eastern Shore , DC , Pittsburgh and Florida . I’ve
collaborated with Cypher Street Music, Tribes of Africa (my
Nigerian soldiers!) my own Spic Spit Movement (Latinos Stand
Up!), Dash down in Florida and countless mixtape djs. I’m down
to move with people who are “down for a cause, not just
I try to combine lyricism with pertinent issues that everyone
can understand. You can sum up my music by one of my quotes
from “Geek Down” (Welcome to the Revolution Vol.1): “People
don’t listen to the message if the music is wack”. I truly
believe that and so I’m going to continue to keep elevating
the music, crushing all that ignorant minstrel show, snap
music nonsense. In 2006 I dropped “Welcome to the Revolution
Vol. 1” and followed that up in 2007 with “RE:Evolution”.
“Resurrecting the Champ” EP is scheduled for early 2008.
