About Me

from central california but i was raised on the central coast, santa barbara area. i started making music in 2002 or 2001, 01 i think. before that i was strickly a fan, i had no idea i didnt need connections and all that to do it, my now deceased freind was a M.C. and basicly showed me the way. thank you to gabby(rap name, Dieaniesis.)go check out what remains of some of his music on my space if you get a chance. he was mosly a mix tape type artist, but he showed me the ropes on some programs and i just took the ball and ran with it. i make hip hop, tho not the kind yopu here on the radio or mtv/bet. i make independent hip hop along the lines of living legends, atmosphere, jedi mind tricks and demigodz. mostly loops and samples with drum tracks behind them, no big time symphony playing a score or nothin, simplicity is what im about, dope simplicity.
