About Me

started with hip-hop music around 1999 makin beats with little keyboards and 5 sec. samplers. 4 track tape recorder and a drum-machine. did some local shows with some early tracks.
after a while i linked up with some locals who were starting to make some noise around my state. our first track we colabed ongot radio spins locally.
some time passed working on records and doing some good shows [sir mixalot ,young m.c. and digital underground] when we got more regional attention.
a few out of state shows and we had garnered enough attention to manage a record deal.
noc on wood records based out of seattle. they flew us out and we signed.
2 year deal for 2 albums. the money the label had was great but it didnt run right.
new studio gear to new clothes 4 photos it was cool.
but in the end they only put out one of our albums. way later then the contract said.
after the buzz died down from touring [warped tour 2006] not a good move.
eventually we were all cut from the label. since ive produced 3 albums 4 one guy and one
4 myself. check out mo digs on my space and myspace.com/heirloom1
