HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST
Hip Hop recording artist, native of Los Angeles, California and considered one of the three Best Freestylers in the history of battle rap.
As a 3-time World Freestyle Battle Rap Champion (‘90, ‘91, ’92), 2-time ASCAP Champion (’91, ’92) and Rap Sheet Magazine Freestyle Battle Champion (’96), SUPREMEiNK aka Supreme Ink Pen is one half of the infamous Ghost writing team “The KINGPeNz” aka Hits Over Here (HOH) and one third of the Hip Hop Super group, Royal Flush Club.
Supreme started rapping during a family visit to Philly when he was 9 years old and signed his first of four Major record deals at the age of 14, making him at the time the youngest Hip Hop recording artist in the industry.
When he turned 19 years old Supreme won ASCAP’s annual new artist competition which led to a deal with INTERSCOPE records and the pairing up with a young upcoming producer named DJ Yutaka.
The group toured Japan with Grandmaster MELLE Mel, Prince Whipper Whip, DJ Honda and the Rock Steady Crew DJ’s on a tour of champions as the USA’s best Freestyle Emcees and Competition DJ’s. Two years later, after recording a two-song demo with then local Hip Hop producer Dr. Dre, he signed a solo deal with Arista Records under Clive Davis and began a four-year journey which transformed him from a polished stage performer to a seasoned recording artist.
During his years on Arista Records, he trained as an Engineer working with legendary musician David Cochrane of the Commodores and studied song writing techniques from Motown Records Multi Grammy award winning producer Norman Whitfield Sr.
In 2009, after a self-imposed retirement, Supreme was signed to Universal Records, under its Johnnie Roscoe Production company. After becoming JR’s Chief Staff Producer/Song writer, he began a ghost writing partnership with recording artist “Dirty Rat” who had recently changed his name to “CALIBOI”.
By 2014, Supreme reconnected with DJ Yutaka and began laying the foundation to what would become the Royal Flush Club.
Currently in post-production on his solo album that will be released in 2018, his rap style compares to when fire meets gasoline. Explosive!!!
