Born and raised in the same city as NFL great Craig 'Ironhead" Heyward and Hip-hop emcee 7shawn (World Reknown), Passaic, New Jersey, Venomous2000 has been a force for positivity in the Hip-hop culture for over 15 years. Venomous2000' early beginnings started with his uncle who used to be a radio DJ for the famous New York City WBLS 107.5FM radio station. Venomous2000 received his first tastes of Hip-hop during the early 80's with notables such KRS-ONE, RAKIM, MC Lyte, and Public Enemy. Venomous2000' cousin, Irocdis, was co-founder of the Tommy Boy Records recording artists Deadly Snakes, who gave Venomous lots of inspiration during the sessions that he would stop by and watch them perform and work on music. The name Venomous2000 was actually started by the Deadly Snakes influence due to the vast amount of time spent in their studios in South Jersey and Philadelphia. He wanted to make sure that his cousin's vision of the fight against negative music (poison) was met with anti-venom (positivity) so hence the name Venomous was established. He would later add "TheUltraEmcee & 2000" to separate any affiliation with the rap group The Deadly Snakes. Venomous met with his first rhyme partner, DeadEye during his years in High School. He would later link with fellow Passaic emcee Danny-D and work on his first demo tape in 1997. During this same time, Venomous2000 was at a recording session in Paterson, NJ and met another local group called World Affiliated (Phonetic, Nalm Myerz). The 3 emcees chemistry worked well together and they eventually moved on to form a rap group called The Formulis. During the years with the Formulis, Venomous2000 did extensive performances in the NY, NJ, and PA areas. The group still performs and does music together, but Venomous2000 is now focused on his solo career development. Venomous2000 has released 4 solo projects with features by Inspectah Deck, John Robinson, El Da Sensei, Cymarshal Law, LIFElong, Smif N Wessun and more. Venomous2000 has toured Canada & Europe (France, Belgium) with the So Fresh So Hip-hop 2012 Euro Tour. He was honored to share stages with Immortal Technique, Chip-Fu, Keith Murray, and Afu-Ra. The experience and connections established in Europe has broadened Venomous2000 catalog as he successfully completed his 1st solo international tour in 2014. Venomous2000 has successfully completed his 2nd European tour this past summer. Venomous performed and filmed videos in France, Germany, England, Belgium, Czech Republic, and Norway! Venomous2000 is currently in the process of setting up his 3rd European Tour for the Fall of 2015. Be sure to check out www.Venomous2000.com for updates, locations, and new music!
