Look for 4eva N'Finite Productionz in the near future!!!! BLACKSTEELZ IZ HERE! HOODCHICKS BABY! Don (EMFinite Black) Williams- born in Queens, New York. At the age of 16 he was in a rap group dubbed FELLOWMAN, which consisted of two of his friends.
Due to creative differences, he went to explore a solo career and was able to successfully open 3 shows in North and South Dakota for Cash Money’s own, Juvenile. EMFinite Black (EMF Black) formed his own crew from the New York area. Together they are called The MARXMEN. Through his trial and tribulations in the music industry, he remains focused and acquired some knowledge of the business along the way. With this in mind, he does most of his bookings for various appearances.
In the midst, EMF has been paving his way through the streets by appearing on up and coming DJ’s mix tapes such as Dj lexx, Dj Tores and is also making his rounds to labels and on the streets selling his mix tapes titled “Trialz & Tribulationz”. From the New York underground circuits to other parts of the country, all has felt the presence of Every Man Fears Black (hence, EMF Black). What he calls “a mixed pot of gumbo”, because he would say that he’s LL Cool J because the ladies love him. Buckshot da BDI, because he keeps it gutter, and Slick Rick in as much, his tales are flashy. Whoever has seen his performances realized that they’ve been treated to hip-hop show the way it was meant to be and that is with passion and respect for the past.Added in his repertoire are his dancers dubbed the Blackettes. True enough, EMFinite Black is the next best thing.
But those unaware of will feel the wrath of his uncharted chambers. He shows diligence as of a hip-hop veteran and hunger of new artist. Therefore, whichever label embraces this talent from Queens will have the pleasure to unleash the beast out of its cage. It’s a promise; EMFinite Black will be a problem to the game.
