Pete Cain / Bio

Peter A. O'Kane born in Peekskill NY june 20th 1974, known by his stage name Pete Cain, is an underground artist who started at the age of 14. In 1989, Pete became friends with Americo Sanchez aka Scorpio aka DJ Jah Nice from Newburgh NY. During that time he was introduced to an artist known as Iceman from the Bronx. Although Pete had always loved hip hop, he never thought of being an mc, his interest was being a dj. But after hearing Iceman spit, there was something he felt and he went home and wrote his 1st verse. He made a name around Peekskill for being 1 of the best. Together Pete and Scorp formed a group and started making mixtapes. Scorpio also ran an after hours spot in Newburgh where he would dj and Pete would perform. They also entered into contest and battles where the two would be successfull on every occasion. Eventually the two would part ways. It wasnt long before Pete connected with another artist, Charles Cabell known as Mr Cee, and formed a group, True Colors, around 91-92. They performed locally and also at Uptown Comedy Club in Harlem on 125th st where they would take 1st place against a number of talented artists. This duo would also part ways. Aside from music, life also had its ups and downs, and by the age of 20, he was raising 2 babies as a single father. With this new responsibility, his dream had to be put on hold. Over the years he never lost his passion for music. Every chance possible he would write and record songs. In all he has performed in New York City, Connecticut, Westchester county, Sprinvalley, Newburgh, Phoenix Az and even in Tijuana Mexico. Now in present day he has hooked up with Fazeonerok and Crackz to form the Coronerz. Fazeonerok is also CEO of 730Products. With them he has been able to release many hot new songs and get back in the game. The Coronerz have performed in Peekskill NY, Elmsford and Ct. with good reviews. This attention encouraged Pete Cain to work on a project of his own which was hosted by 730Products called "ULTRA" and was released on datpiff.com. The ep is doing extremely well.To some Pete Cain is considered a living legend and with the support of his fans he will continue to truly create real Hip Hop music.
