Fuji / Bio

Growing up surrounded by music, I was destined to be involved with music. Coming from a small town (Las Vegas New Mexico) it was hard to get where I wanted to go with my music career considering they only had 2 music stores that only sold mainstream rap and Chicano rap. In 1995 I moved to Albuquerque NM and fell in love with their underground hip-hop scene. Albuquerque had its own style of DJ'ing and MC'ing that quickly caught my ear. I started attending house parties and jumping in ciphers and quickly began getting props. The local hip hop store called "The LA Underground" became a second home for me. I lived about a block away from there and i would be there daily wheter it be digging for new vinyl, getting some fatcaps, or just chopping it up with "Smooch" about the new Tat Money tape. (i miss those days) From there I moved to California and then to Colorado where the scene is somewhat similar to NM. That's where i started taking my DJ career to the next level and actually acquire more records, gear and dedicate myself to music. I then moved back to NM, Got in some legal trouble, took a couple year "vacation" to a place where i had nothing but time. I used my time on vacation wisely and got some more education, read more books and most importantly, wrote a lot of lyrics. after my vacation was over, i hooked up with Jon Lujan and recorded my first single called "Knock You Out" . It was a track done for my friend Cordy. he was a cage fighter at the time and needed a song to walk out to. The song was a hit (no pun intended). After i made that track, I took a break from hip hop for a while so i could hone in my DJ skills in other genres. I started DJ'ing frequently at clubs in Albuquerque and huge festivals and raves across the Southwest. I recently moved to Austin TX the "Live music capital of the world" and bought me all the studio equipment i need to record my first album. I am focusing all my musical energy on Hip Hop right now. I will be dropping tracks with a bunch of big name features. It's more like a project to put all my favorite emcees together over my beats and beats from my friends.
