SPOKEN WORD: With Music, HIP HOP/RAP: Spiritual Rap
I''ve been writing poetry for over 12 years... and been making songs for the past 5 years... I got into Slam Poetry during 2001, then tied for 1st at the Oakland Poetry Slam... Then started recording my first album "A Train of Events" with San Fransicso''s Dj eXacto... I finished that up in 2002. Released it myself, on CD, under the self-created label "Omnipresent Records". Got some good press in 2003 and a feature spot @ https://www.tradebit.com.
"I feel like nothing I can say about his album will truly do it justice... Hip-Hop, spoken word, poetry, philosophy, spirituality, life... I''m stricken by the openness and honesty... Sometimes a verbal diary, sometimes a message, sometimes rational, and always thoughtful... auditory artwork…" - Featured 2003 Artist @ Underground https://www.tradebit.com (USA)
"I''m normally not a great fan of spoken word stuff, but there''s something about this that just clicks... this is CRAZY deep... the work of DJ Exacto and DJ Denizen on the boards is as impressive as 8''s penchant for writing... " - Review @ https://www.tradebit.com (UK)
"...the musical diversity on this album is highly impressive... a place where real-life action transcends into thoughts and images... nothing less than existential matters... expertly arranged..." - Review @ https://www.tradebit.com (USA)
I was then invited to be a guest on "The Drop Zone - EP" by the Underground Cartel. It was released on Vinyl and CD in 2003 by New Dawn Records, UK. In 2004, it was nominated for "UMA" (Urban Music Award) in the UK.
" https://www.tradebit.comss stands out in Seconds Out, a unique voice complementing some 1st class lyrics... brilliant example of artists from different countries sharing the same opinions about politics and society..."-Review @ Blue Commet Music (UK)
I''ve also created 3 other solo songs for other Indy labels. "80 Percent" for Dj Kam-R''s "West Coast Style Compliation" & 123 Music Center Records (France), "Homeward Bound" for Wayne Folk''s "Man of Many Faces" & Metrarecords (NYC), & "One False Move- https://www.tradebit.comss Remix" for the "ESP Compilation" & Exit Stance (Sweden).
This is my solo sophomore release, "A Dragon''s Tale", it''s 15 tracks deep with production from, dj eXacto (SF), Sutter Kain (South Carolina), Dj Kam-r (France), Picturetone (Detroit), and Adamatic (LA)... I produced the other 10 tracks myself... Thanks for checkin'' me out... I can still use all the help I can get... ((God Bless)) - https://www.tradebit.comss
