Soon after, the MC then known as Profes made his debut on King Just’s 1994 album entitled Mystics of the God. The album sold over 300,000 copies and was an astonishing success. This afforded Profes the opportunity to rise to another level. He began touring for shows such as Freaknic in Atlanta, Jack the Rapper in Florida, and the very first Hot 97’s Summer Jam held in New Jersey. Although he had much success with Blackfist Records, it was short lived.
The label would eventually fall apart, leaving Profes to sign with Pinnacle Records, an independent label. It was while with Pinnacle Entertainment, that Profes released his first solo single Party On/Decision. The single sold over 10,000 copies in the U.K. and Africa.
However, it wasn’t long before the young MC found himself once again, on his own. With unstoppable will and determination that was not to be reckoned with, Fes Taylor founded Two 4 War Entertainment in early 2000. This allowed him to release an independent solo album on the streets, which in the long run sold over 20,000 copies. His on going passion would also lead him to do background vocals for an independent film titled Kings of the Streets, a hip hop documentary. In the following years, “Taylor 2 Fly” kept flooding the streets and the internet with a series of underground projects ranging from mixtapes and compilations to DVD’s and albums. His work ethic eventually caught the attention of Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck who asked Fes to join his new Housegang Animalz crew.
The group released just one classic mixtape and was then splintered and redisbursed among several other Wu-affiliated groups, but Fes stayed loyal to Deck, becoming the lyrical master’s own personal protégé, as well as a great stylist and lyricist in his own right. Taylor also formed a two-man group with long time friend Mr. Prezident called Heart Foundation. The duo’s swagger and energy impressed G-Unit affiliate Mazaradi Fox so much that he made the Heart Foundation members of the G-Unit/Dumout family. Having earned the respect of well-known established artists and fans worldwide, the timing was now perfect for Fes to release his first retail solo album. So, he signed a deal with new indie label Chambermusik Records/Koch for the release of Flight 10304 (T-2 Fly).
This official debut is co-signed by Wu-Tang legend Inspectah Deck and features the Rebel INS himself, Shyheim, Mr. Prezident, Lot-A-Nerv, T-Bird and many more. Production is handled by Falling Down, Flip, Blastah Beatz, G-Clef da Mad Komposa, Chad Beats, and others. Fes Taylor is about to take off, so you better strap yourself in.
