Born and raised in Southeast Jamaica, Queens, "Badlands" Booker has always had hip hop flowing thru his veins, and spent much of his early years rhyming under the moniker "Big Hulk", beat boxing, making and shopping demos, Performing at Open Mic sessions such as the Lyricist Lounge, and doing Wednesday night showcases at CBGB''s, also doing promo''s for NY''s Hot 97 Radio Station. Then in 1999 I took some time off from the Hip Hop game to pursue another sport, Competitive Speed Eating. So after a not so long hiatus to get into competitive eating, in 2003, with the help of producer/musician Julian Maile (Loser''s lounge, Rent,ABC''s My Kind Of Town) I Decided to heat up my pen and continue to pursue my hip hop career in a very innovative way by creating what would be Hip Hop''s first competitive eating themed album. On July 4th. 2004, Hungry & Focused was released with ovelwelming praise from the competitive eating community. tracks like "The Sweet Science" and the "All Day Buffet" recieved critical acclaim, and rocked crowds in the competitive eating community from a few hundred to crowds as large as 22,000! During the Christmas Season of 2004, "Hungry & Focused" was officially the number 1 selling product in the IFOCE online store! The apparent sucess of the 1st. album has inspired me to do a follow up entitled "Hungry & Focused II - The Ingestion Engine" which was released Thanksgiving 2005. this album is a more broader picture than the one painted by Hungry & Focused 1, and i plan to step up my promotion, and show dates so that not only the eating fans can get Hungry and Focused, but the rest of America as well! Badlands Never sleeps. In addition, as i prepare for the ''06 competitive eating season, i''m in the studio working on my third album called "Hungry & Focused III - Jim Mullen''s Teeth" which will be out Thanksgiving 2006 so look forward to that eating fans! Thanks for your support and remember whatever you do in life, stay hungry & focused. -Badlands.
