Artist Background: DJ turned Emcee from metro northwest of Boston. I’m originally a native New Yorker.I grew up in Jamaica, Queens. I was a Turntablist before I started to Emcee. Mixtapes, beats, remixes, compose and produce.
Worked in variety of clubs during college and KBVR FM radio station at Oregon State University. 1/3 of 1200 Percent, A group of Djs’ that held it down, in Corvallis. I took a long break from music after college.
In-between now and then I published two instrumental albums; “The Conduit” and “Domestic Squabbles”. But my responsibilities as a father kept me from pursuing any music interests. So after college started my career in design.
For the next several years I went through some life changing events that put me in a negative place. No surprise these changes left me in a vulnerable place. So I spent some time to reflecting and putting things in order. Which brought me back to music.
Pulling creativity from my experiences. I learned to be even more productive. When I had nothing left to be strong for but strength itself. I was lucky that I choose to deal with my discouraging events in such a positive matter. I felt overwhelmed that I had to. It’s given me some exponential zen like patience to be constructive.
The experiences inspired me to focus on music when I couldn’t change what was going on around me. Music became my voice, a way to express the hardships in despair I went through in silence. It kept me from making bad situations become even worse.
