b. Leo Dupree Ramsey Jnr., Oakland, California, USA. A rapper whose depictions of metropolitan reality were resolved having a detached, nearly resigned air flow. He started to freestyle at age 10, when his radio 1st found rap within the Californian airwaves. He used the design, and published his own terms towards the beats he noticed, competing using the neighbourhood kids to master his delivery. His primary influences had been the politics heavyweights Public Foe and KRS-One. He installed along with his DJ, Cut (b. Michael Dark brown, though he was known in Oakland circles because the ‘Defeat Fixer’), at a celebration in Fresno, adding Nate THE FANTASTIC (b. Jonathon Matthews) and Chuck Fine (b. Charles Johnson). Because they built a solid local reputation the ultimate jigsaw piece found its way to the form of manufacturer Lionel ‘The Super Duper Dope Hook Man’ Bea. Through him the group gained a agreement with Jive Information. Their debut record was premiered by their best-known trim, ‘It’s A Dark Thing’, released as an individual. Decidedly in the Afrocentricity theme, it had been critically well received but later on their camp continued to be comparatively quiet.
