In the rap game, flash-in-the-pan artists are called legends before they can legally drive. By those standards, Skatterman is a OG in the game. But his is a hard-earned title that comes after years of sweat and heartache. Negotiating the notoriously grimy music business is nearly as dangerous as growing up in the streets of eastside Kansas City, but Skatterman somehow avoided the pitfalls of both, making a name for himself in the process.
Starting as a teen, the syllable spitter knocked out hits with different groups, starting with Southside Rollers in 1999. In high school, Skatterman met rapper Snug Brim, and the two became longtime collaborators. When their 2001 album “Worth a Million” caught the attention of Tech N9ne and his label Strange Music, the duo signed on with Strange for a successful, seven-year run..
After 8 years as Strange Music's self proclaimed black sheep, 2011 marks the first official mixtape/album for Indie Icon Tech N9ne’s former number one henchman. Skatterman has elevated his game even further since his separation from right hand man Snug Brim to develop a new sound and forge a new direction from a now solitary and more personal point of view.
With his new imprint "BiggShot Music and Films", Skatterman is prepping the field for a Midwest movement the likes of which has never been seen. With the inaugural Mixtape “The Cook Book: Recipe 1 in 2011” and the subsequent release in January 2012 of "The Cook Book; Recipe 2", the industry veteran, breaks new barriers and provides fans with a little more insight into life away from his previous label base. Now after over 800 shows with Tech N9ne, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Lil Flip and Paul Wall among others, Skatterman is ready to leave his own indelible mark on the music game.
