Blaq Poet

"Blaq Poet was first heard in the track "Beat You Down" from the Bridge Wars during 1987, a diss song towards KRS-One and Boogie Down Productions. At that time Poet was at least 17 years old, as stated in a 2009 radio interview. During 1991, Poet and DJ Hot Day made a duo called PhD and released their debut album, Without Warning on Tuff City Records. They released after that album several 12 inch singles and a EP until 1996 when they broke up. Poet went onto teaming up with KL, Hostyle and Solo, creating the group Screwball. They released two albums and a compilation together before Poet went solo with the street album Rewind: Deja Screw, released 2006. The album featured production from DJ Premier amongst others. Poet later on signed to DJ Premier's Year Round Record label and released his second album, Tha Blaqprint in 2009 with the majority production coming from DJ Premier and guest appearances from the likes of Lil' Fame and N.O.R.E. as well as labelmates NYGz and Nick Javas. On the remix version of Ain't Nuthing Changed, a single from Tha Blaqprint, he collaborated with west coast rappers MC Eiht and Young Maylay. Blaq Poet is currently working on an album with producer Stu Bangas from Guns-N-Butter to be released on Stu's label Brutal Music."
