Born and raised in Columbus, IN., after high school he spent 7 years in Virginia, the birth place of his parents and second home, trying to further his education.
“As long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for the culture of Hip Hop. But it wasn’t until that time period that I decided to give back, to contribute to the culture. How? I became an emcee. BlackEddie was birthed.”
After his stint in the land for lovers, he returned to the Midwest to “finish my so called schooling”. Back in Columbus, still a fiend for hip hop, his two closest cohorts besides his brother were another brother by the name of Adon aka 80 Owen (spell out Adon), and his main man Peck. At times they would trade lines back and forth, make frequent trips to Indianapolis, Louisville, Bloomington, Cincinnati, and occasionally Chicago, and looked for any outlet they could find to plug themselves into.
Now with a degree and a daughter, as being a single dad comes first and foremost, he still has the skill to hold it down for his home town. From open mics to marquees, people love his sound.
“holla at your brethren…god knowledge the seven…”
