Live and direct from New York City, comes a live lyricist with a booming voice who has rocked crowds from Albany to Amsterdam over the course of his ten year career without the push or support of a label. The son of two public school teachers, this young rapper cut his teeth on the streets of New York’s West Village, where he and his crew would rap to elude the aggressive pull of their gritty city streets. His ability to tell a compelling story while still keeping hands in the air to the sound of his voice has always been his greatest strength and over time, This underground legend has built quite a cult following. He released two independent 12”s, one entitled “The Force” on Makin’ Records, the Brooklyn label that spawned Bad Seed, Jean Grae and her former group Natural Resource. “The Force” was well received in the streets and gained spins on the Stretch and Bobbito show and a SESAC award for number one college radio play. After parting ways with his label after only a short while, he then set out on the road, performing wherever he could in spots like Austin and Houston, TX, St.

Louis, MO, Syracuse, NY, Montreal, CA and any city in between where he could grab a mic. It was when the young artist decided to spend some time in Amsterdam, that he really began to see the big picture and push his craft to the world. Doing spot dates and open mic nights wherever he could get on, Scavone found himself performing in front of 3000 people, headlining with old school Italian legend, Ice One at Rome, Italy’s Soul River. His ancestors shook and puked in their graves. His next big event was a show at the Subkult Music Festival in Copenhagen, Denmark with the Beatnuts, Bobbito and the Grilla in front of 2000 people. He sold tapes to make his way and hit off promoters as well.

That led to club dates with Cypress Hill – (one night he straight up pretended to be B-Real for a few free Corona’s) Slum Village and Craig Mack. Upon return Scavone released a 12” on the Landspeed label entitled “Willie On Glock” which featured an ahead of it’s time jungle remix that blew the roof off of many clubs. Scavone continued to perform for crowds on Manhattan’s busy streets and it's underground hip hop circuit. He’s best known for the freestyles he would drop on a number of radio shows including those of DJ Lord Sear, Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito the Barber. Scavone has worked with talents such as DJ Etch-A-Sketch (Mos Def, Blackstar), Mista Sinista (X-Executioners) – both of whom toured and performed with him, Mark Ronson, members of the Fun Lovin’ Criminals, and DJ SAE ONE (The Resource). In addition, Scavone has recorded tracks with independent heavyweights, Jean Grae (Baby Grande Records) and Lounge a Lo (Authorized Fam).

Scavone’s performance is not to be touched. It embodies the essence of hip-hop where the DJ and the MC are the band. With his talent, experience and drive - Scavones’ next hope is to destroy the cookie-cutter pop driven industry and turn it back into something meaningful... Read more on Last.fm.
