Sincere Amakulate (Immaculate) was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1983 bearing the name Gabriel Diaz. Since a baby he was raised listening to a variety of different music;
from Kiss, Notorious Big to Sade. At the age of fourteen he really got into writing songs for personal entertainment and found he had talent.
In 1997 he started rapping with friends freestyling and was introduced to a rapper/producer by the name of Supreme Eloheem from "Da Boot Camp Clik" ,
which in turn sparked an interest in production behind the lyrics for Sincere. He began learning how to use MPC 2000 and other methods of production,
learning the tricks from the likes of Supreme his cousin Steele (Smif and Wesson), Havoc (Mobb Deep) and others.
Sincere not only worked on mix tapes on the rapping and production side but he also engineered tracks as well. In mid 2003,
Sincere released a mix tape with the help of Supreme named "Up in Smoke" Ft. Supreme and freestyles featuring Louie Skaggs of BTU.
With a good buzz Sincere worked with Supreme on various mix tapes and projects such as the mix tape "Fuck Yo Couch" released on Oct. 02 2007 which was executively produced by Supreme.
With a better buzz than the first mix tape, Sincere began focusing on making his mark and showing his love for all genres through his music.
However he took a brief hiatus due to family matters. Sincere got back in the studio in late 2009 and started working on a project: "Big Trouble in Brooklyn"
with the help of producer P. Floyd. He released the mix tape on February 15 2010 which featured Leon Marin, Chub and the smash hit "W.A.N.T.S." (We Are Not The Same).
On May 30th Sincere produced the title track for his mentor Supreme Eloheem's LP "It's My Time" ;
an LP with over 20,000 downloads on Itunes. Sincere is currently worked on an album with Brother Hood 603 & PiFF to form super group "GP Pot Heads"
