Overlord Gruff / Bio

Born and raised in Pomona, California, he gradually developed a knack for meticulous word play and an appreciation for the hip hop and rap genre. Previously a soldier in the U.S. Army, an Operation Enduring Freedom Veteran, he transposes some experiences attributed to the rigors and blessings of this life as well as the personal into his art. The initial motivation to write and produce music derived from a lack of lyricists and MCs, which he has encountered throughout his global travels that were no longer willing to compete in a freestyle battle against him. This, coupled with his eagerness to point out the obvious changes in the quality of talent being acknowledged today, was enough to get him to pick up a pen and a microphone. Now focused on honing this aptitude for verbosity by producing his own music from the bottom up; he will not stop until himself or his love for hip hop is dead, or until the substantial and raw reality rap has returned to popularize the charts to replace today’s repetitive substandard excuses for music.
