I became no stranger to the characteristics of a young black man growin up in a poverty struck ghetto where the majority are minority living off or in systematic circumstances. Over the years early on as 5 & 6 we were exsposed to the game of the late 70,s early 80,s were the party favers or tools of suburbian lifestyles (Powder Cocaine) was transformed into (Crack Cocaine) the nightmare of urban ghettos all over america & even beyond. Still a young kid & not yet as intelligent, I stepped off the porch a young hard head. It did & all in the same time didnt help that the family bloodline is real thick, traditionally rich wit gangstas, pimps, players, hustlers killaz, drug addicts & even a few legit factors in high place's Having to deal wit the day to day in's and out's, high's & low's of streetlife I felt I was left in a catch 22 (damn'ed if I do damn'ed if I don't) witch later became the title to 1 of my albums, but that's later.
Savy but still a young teen & with the addition of a third brother I became the head of a family oriantated cartel who's reputation & influencess would spread well beyond the origanal boundries of the bay area where I blossumed from a young deep rooted seed. In fact my whole life took a turn when 1 day comming home from school, to my disarray, I found dwellen around my home the task force ATF, & the feds all look'in fa ma ma. (I mean what can I say?) I told you the bloodline is thick, rich wit hutler's, pimps, gangsta's etc., ma ma was a firm believer of adjusting accordingly to circumstances (if you no what I mean) In a nutshell I had about 4 hours to pack all my shit and we were off to sac. CA.
Origanally going the run but later vowing to change her life around ma ma moved us to Sac CA what was then a little less ghetto, well at least we thought. There, my cousin Ronald Carpenter Singleton jr. (Tata Bugg) a.k.a Bigg Druggz know (R.I.P) was emerging to become a street legend. know mid 80's & the influenceses of gang lifestyle set'n in every corner of Sac, alongside a few others we formulated our own neighborhood gang (Meadowview Bloods),a nice lil cluster of sets together form'n a mighty gang (but dats some other shit!!!!) Now to this rap shit: Just so happends that I happend to be the lil youngsta backin day rapp'n at the house party rep'n fa da hood befor rap could even make some snaps you digg? My brake came kinda sudden after being incarcerated several times written raps during my stays in jail.
Though affiliated wit the bloods the door was kicked in with C-bo another Sac. legend in the rap game, also a well known 29st crip. I owe a great amount of respect & love to that man. Infact still to dis day we remain like brothers you feel ? I mean me and dat man really did some shit.
He introduced me to E.40, B-legit, Master P, & thru him the list goe's on eventually to AWOL records were after just a few rap sessions I my first record deal (thus the hunger begun) After a few years on da road wit C-bo, I decided to come home to work on a solo album of my own through many ups and downs high's & low's I was fortunate enough to accomplish alot. 3 albums (realizum of reality, Catch 22, & Shitty Kruchaphino) all collaberating wit a host of your favorite rappers all over. some independent & some wit da help of distrabution companies. which brings us to now: after take'n some time off from my last release, and basically grow'n sick & tired of the idustries cartoon character's and phony acts (I'M BACK) wit a Bang or shall I say Bangers Stay tuned to all websites for info on new album Read more on Last.fm.
