Growing up in Hartford, CT Blac began to take an interest in hip hop music during his teen years, but it was violence and street life that took up most of his time. Thanks to his strong-arm style while taking care of business, a 16-year-old Blacastan was tried as an adult when he was arrested in the mid-'90s. Serving his sentence left him plenty of time for listening and writing. He favored the underground sound of the Lyricist Lounge and Soundbombing series along with artists like Nas, Mobb Deep, The Wu Tang Clan and Pharoahe Monch. After digging deeper and deeper into the underground while working on his own rhymes, he emerged from prison with an impressive skill set, a throwback style, and an unmatched drive and determination. His first mixtape Me Against the Radio became a favorite in the underground and an internet cult classic, especially its key cut and video, ''Life Of A Tape.'' Appearances on releases from Blue Sky Black Death, Krumbsnatcha, Jean Grae, Esoteric and Apathy followed. The extremely limited CD-only Master Of Reality mixtape with The Bladerunners (7L & Beyonder) garnered the emerging rhyme juggernaut even more momentum. Known for his classic hard core style, no-sellout attitude, and a true life story that would make the most street minded A&R envious, rhyme animal Blacastan is sure to cement his name in the ranks of some today's most relevant of hip hop. Enhanced CD includes an exclusive photo shoot by legendary street photographer Ricky Powell aka the fourth Beastie Boy. 48 Hi Res JPEGS in total. Featuring production by Blue Sky Black Death, Mr. Green, Statik Selektah and guest appearances by Esoteric and Celph Titled.
