KAESON SKRILLA’S NOT NEW TO THE RAP GAME.  I GOT MY START AS A YOUNGSTER WITH THE 90’S RAP GROUP ONYX.  I KNEW ONYX FROM MUTUAL STREET TIES, AND WAS INTRODUCED TO THEM AFTER I RELOCATED FROM BROOKLYN TO QUEENS.  AS A TEEN I RAN AROUND DOING SHOWS WITH ONYX, BUT STILL WANTING TO FUFILL MY PERSONAL NEED TO BE AN MC, SO I BEGAN RECORDING TRACKS ON MY OWN.  MY TALENT WAS A SECRET UNTIL I STARTED RECORDING.  I COMPLETED A DEMO, AND PRESENTED IT TO JAM MASTER JAY, WHO I MET THROUGH WORKING WITH ONYX.  JAY WAS TAKEN BACK, BECAUSE I WAS ONLY KNOWN FOR BEING A TROUBLE MAKER.   IMMEDIATELY RECOGNIZING MY TALENT JAY INVITED ME TO BE PART OF HIS JMJ CREW. ONCE INDUCTED I BROUGHT STREET M.C’S TO THE STUDIO WHICH WAS THE BIRTH OF “THE ORIGINAL CREAM TEAM” NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH RAEKWON’S “AMERICAN CREEM TEAM”SHOUT OUT TO RAE! THE GROUP CONSISTED OF ME, BLACK CHILD (MURDED INC), LIFESTYLES (CONEY ISLAND), AND LA-ED (GOLD DOT).  THE ORIGINAL CREAM TEAM RELEASED A WHITE LABEL WITH SEVERAL SONGS ON IT.   BEFORE WE COULD POP BLACKCHILD GOT KNOCKED, AND WE HAD TO REGROUP TO RECONFIGURE OUR SITUATION.  WITH A JMJ/DEFJAM DEAL ON THE TABLE, ALONG CAME 50 CENT.  50 ENTERED JMJ’S BOOTCAMP AND WAS TAUGHT HOW TO MAKE HOT SONGS TO GO ALONG WITH HIS FLASHY BARS.  JAY ASKED ME TO TOUR WITH 50 ON A PROMO TOUR FOR HIS FIRST EVER PRESSED RECORDS. JESSE ITZLER THE FINANCIAL BACKER OF THE PROMO TOUR, AND FRIEND OF JAY’S TOOK PARTICULAR INTEREST IN ME, AND BEGAN FINANCING MY STUDIO SESSIONS.   IN MARCH OF 98 I BEGAN MOVING AROUND, AND RECORDING WITH OTHER ARTIST.  I WAS TAPPED TO BE PART OF BUSTA RHYMES FLIP MODE SQUAD.  AS WELL AS HAVOC OF MOBB DEEP’S NEWLY FORMING LABEL, WHICH WAS IN NEGOTIATIONS WITH JIVE RECORDS.   SINCE RECORDING, PROMOTING, AND NEGOTIATIONS DIDN’T PAY THE BILLS, BEING A STREET DUDE I GOT CAUGHT UP, AND SENT UP NORTH FOR 8 MONTHS. I WAS RELEASED IN JANUARY 99, AND ON THE SAME DAY I WAS OFFERED A DEAL BY JESSE ITZLER (MARQUIS JETS) WITH ATLANTIC RECORDS.  I MET WITH CRAIG CALMAN AND SIGNED TO ATLANTIC RECORDS.  THE DEAL INCLUDED A HIPHOP/ROCK N ROLL HYBRID PROJECT WITH A SOLO OPTION.  THE PROJECT DIDN’T WORK OUT, & THE DEAL FELL THROUGH.  THEN IN 2000 I BECAME PART OF A NATIONAL JORDACHE CAMPAIGN WITH A ONE MINUTE COMMERCIAL FOR RADIO, WHICH AIRED NATIONALLY.  I BEGAN RECORDING WITH JMJ AGAIN WHILE HE PREPARED HIS “RUSTY WATER” PROJECT ON HOTTADEF RECORDS (JMJ’S LABEL), WHICH WAS PICKED UP BY JIVE.  AFTER THE UNTIMELY DEATH OF MY FRIEND AND MENTOR JAM MASTER JAY, I TOOK A YEAR OFF FROM MUSIC ONLY TO RETURN WITH THE FAMILY APPROVED TRIBUTE TO JAY.   STEVE RIFKIND HEARD MY MUSIC WHILE ON A PRIVATE FLIGHT FROM MIAMI BY JESSE ITZLER (MARQUIS JETS).  STEVE IMMEDIATELY COMITTED TO SIGNING ME, AFTER FAILED ATTEMPTS MADE YEARS PRIOR.  I WAS VERBALLY INDUCTED INTO THE SRC/UNIVERSAL FAMILY, AND SENT ON TOUR TO PERFORM WITH AKON TO PROMOTE HIS TROUBLE ALBUM.  I WAS PHYSICALLY SIGNED TO SRC/UNIVERSAL IN JUNE 2004, AND ABOUT TO DROP MY DEBUT ALBUM, AND START A PROMO TOUR WITH REMY MA WHEN MY PAST CAUGHT UP TO ME. I WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY FOR A TWO YEAR OLD GUN CHARGE.  I WAS TOLD THAT I COULD OF BEAT THE CHARGE IF I GAVE UP MY CO DEFENDANT, BUT ME BEIN ME I TOOK MY GUN CHARGE, ALONG WITH A FOUR & HALF YEAR PRISON BID.  I CAME HOME TOOK ONE MONTH OFF AND IM BACK WITH THE RELEASE OF MY NEW MIXTAPE “THE DIFFERENCE” ALONGSIDE SUPER PRODUCER JARRED ALLSTAR HAYNES.  THE DIFFEENCE SHOWS YOU THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A RAPPER AND AN M.C.  I PLAN ON MAKIN SURE THE FANS KNOW THERE ARE SOME M.C’S AND SOME RAPPERS I AM BOTH. LASTLY BUT MOST IMPORTANT I AM THE COO OF WHITE LIGHT MUSIC GROUP AND PROUD GENERAL OF THE ARMY!!! HOPE YOU ENJOY ……………..SKRILLA
