Pvt Militant aka Alonzo W. Hill was born Aug 17 1968 in Flint, (Hard Rock), Michigan. Pvt Militant has been a fan of the art form (Rap) since the fall of 1979 when he was introduced to rap, via Rappers Delight. While attending elementary school Pvt Militant began to write poetry and read just about everything he could get his hands on. He enjoyed authors such as Steinbeck, Malcolm X, Hawthorne and James Baldwin. As a freshman in high school, he spent money he had saved from his allowance to buy two turntables and a mixer and began to learn how to make mix tapes, and began DJing at parties. Unfortunately, the cost of buying two albums for each new release caused Pvt Militant to slow down on his hobby and concentrate on other things. The other things happened to be girls and partying. Absent from school for almost an entire semester, Pvt Militant began to think about his future, and his addiction to Rap. In 1988 just months after graduating over a year late, Pvt Militant joined the U.S. Army. During his stint in the U.S. Army, he was accused of being a non-conformist as early as basic training and almost was thrown out for insubordination two and a half years later. Luckily, his early years saved him, because of his love of reading, he researched the U.S. Army regulations, regarding insubordination and used the very weapons they were trying to use against him to earn his Honorable Discharge in October of 1991. While doing his stint in the U.S. Army, he became militant (fighting for what is right) and never got pass the rank of private, so he became Pvt Militant. After his discharge from the U.S. Army Pvt Militant entered a local community college and eventually earned his A.A. in 1994 and a B.A. in Political Science in 1998. While attending the U of M splinter campus Pvt Militant became involved with student politics and was chosen to become the Student''s of Black Achievement President, but chose to step down and allow another student take the position, so he could continue to make change behind the scene. In addition while matriculating the U of M Pvt Militant lectured to a group of teenagers on several occasions and managed to continue to record several underground tracks. One of which was named "What is a Rhyme Without Substance". Which is the one track that led to him being contacted by Bill Tha Pharmacizt to record a song with Public Enemy and Confrontation Camp titled "We Don''t Need U". After being inspired to rhyme, again after a self-imposed hiatus several projects came to being and thus spawned the Impossebulls. C-Doc stewarded the Impossebulls (Marcus J, Tirade, DJ President Ike, Def Chad) while Chuck D offered guidance. Always inspired to write and perform songs Pvt Militant linked with a local producer Tha Commandant and scoured the planet for beats from producers such as Dee-Lo Blackington, Chemiztry The DopeBeat Maker, and C-Doc to complete his long awaited debut album "One Man Against Many". Pvt Militant has performed with and is a member of Chuck D''s super group The Impossebulls and has opened up (Alongside the Impossebulls) for groups such as Public Enemy, Dilated Peoples and Blackalicious. Pvt Militant has also appeared on local television shows "Life out Loud" and "In my Opinion" discussing the music industry and having political debates. Lastly, Pvt Militant has always been involved with the Hip-Hop scene, first as a Break Dancer, then as a DJ, turned Graffiti Artist, and lastly an MC.
