Twiztid
Twiztid
Pop music is a bloated, rotting corpse and The Wicked Shit is the undead pulse hidden deep within. If you look into the shadows, past the smoke and mirrors of MTV and playlist radio, and into the cold, hard streets, you'll find the underground of music. A place where innovation thrives and inspiration drives. Unapologetic, unique artists have carved a niche for fans fed up with the glamour-mag faces and spoon-fed lyrics of modern music, and offer them something more.

Where most rappers celebrate the urban lifestyle with the same old themes and the same old image, Twiztid peel away the gloss and expose the innards. With an oversized butcher knife. They take the hard edge of theatrical rock-and-roll and temper it with gritty hip-hop to create a musical monstrosity so dangerously real it must be hidden with facepaint. These aren't casual gangsters; their painted personas let them explore the darkest corners of the human psyche, from superhero fantasies to horror film legacies. With their ruthless raps, they can explore every recess of their audience's experiences, every sentimental reflection and every sinister urge. By becoming something unreal, they are free to be real. Whether it's on-stage devastation or home stereo infiltration, Twiztid's music will take you somewhere you've never been before. The scariest part is when you don't want to come back…
BLAZE YA DEAD HOMIE
BLAZE YA DEAD HOMIE
Rouleau began rapping at the age of 17, while in Romeo High School, and performed at local clubs on the east side of Detroit.[1] Rouleau performed as a member of 2 Krazy Devils (with Skrapz) under the stage name Psycho C.[2] Rouleau's first big performance was at the Ritz in Roseville, where he and James Lowery opened for House of Krazees.[1] House of Krazees member The R.O.C. later produced 2 Krazy Devils' only album, Flipped Insanity, before the group disbanded in 1996.[2]

Rouleau joined several groups, but no material was released. When Rouleau was about to give up rapping, he was encouraged to join Psychopathic Records, where he initially started out as a member of Insane Clown Posse's road crew.[1][3] He appeared on Twiztid's Mostasteless album, and occasionally acted as a hype man in live concerts.[4] Rouleau joined Dark Lotus and Psychopathic Rydas, performing in the latter under the stage name "Cell Block."[4] In 2000, Rouleau released a solo EP, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, establishing his character as a gang member killed in the late 1980s.[2] Rouleau toured major cities across the country to support the release, including a debut at the Gathering of the Juggalos.[4][5]

The LP 1 Less G N Da Hood was recorded and released in 2001, followed by continued touring and appearances on several Psychopathic releases.[5] On October 19, 2004, Rouleau released his second studio album, Colton Grundy: The Undying. It peaked at #9 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart, #16 on the Top Independent Albums chart, #57 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, #167 on the Top Internet Albums chart, and #167 on the Billboard 200.[6] Rouleau formed the group Drive-By with Lowery, releasing the album Pony Down (Prelude) in 2005. The following year, Rouleau contributed two tracks to the video game 25 To Life, which also featured music by Tupac Shakur, Public Enemy, DMX, Geto Boys and Tech N9ne.[7] On August 21, 2007, Rouleau released his third studio album, Clockwork Gray. It peaked at #14 on the Top Independent Albums chart and at #34 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.[6] The album features Twiztid, The R.O.C., Boondox and Violent J. Twiztid, Blaze & The R.O.C. formed the group Samhein Witch Killaz. The song "Inside Looking Out" was a SWK song. Unfortunatally in 2011 the question was asked if there would ever be a SWK EP or full length album, and it was confirmed that SWK would not be putting out any EP's or full length albums. The R.O.C. & Blaze formed the group Zodiac MPrint, and the song "I'll Connect" was a Zodiac MPrint song. In late 2013 after Blaze left Psychopathic Records, he and The. R.O.C. started recording a new Zodiac MPrint cd, unknown if it's a EP or full length album. On The R.O.C.'s Twitter account he announced that he has been bumping the rough cuts to the new Zodiac MPrint cd around October/November 2013. The name "Skywalkers" has been thrown around as the title for the cd, but in the "Clockwork Gray" pamphlet there was a promotional picture of Zodiac signs and the upcoming Zodiac cd to be called "Horrorscope".

Rouleau's fourth studio album, Gang Rags, was released on June 22, 2010 and debuted number 52 on the Billboard 200.[8][9] While on the 2011 Drive-By Tour, he released Gang Rags Extended Version (Uncut + Uncensored).[10]

In March 2013, Joseph Bruce speculated that Blaze Ya Dead Homie had left the label.[1] Blaze later spoke openly about the subject during a concert, stating that he had not departed from Psychopathic. ICP publicly apologized to Blaze via Twitter for the misunderstanding,[2][3] but later confirmed during the Gathering of the Juggalos that Rouleau had indeed parted ways with Psychopathic. Later in 2013 Blaze did an interview with NE Hip Hop, saying that he had be hanging out with Strange Music in Kansas City, Missouri. He also went on to say that he wants to do some stuff with other artists he would like to work with, and also said that his fans will start seeing more of him after 2013. At the Days of Dead convention with Twiztid in early Februarty 2014 it was announced that Blaze Ya Dead Homie had signed with Twiztid's new record label.
Scum
Scum
Scum's legacy began in 1995 when he moved from Moscow, Russia to Denver, Colorado. The motivation behind his departure from Russia was the mandatory draft that he was facing and the possibility of getting shot at for 2 years while making practically no money. That option didn't appeal to him so Scum had to stick to his motto – "If you can't get paid for it, it's not worth doing" and shake the spot. Shortly after arriving to Colorado he discovered the world of underground rap, being heavily influenced by such extreme rap acts as Esham, Doomsday Productions, Ganxsta Nip, Brotha Lynch Hung and Insane Poetry and Natas. He began writing rhymes in Russian while trying to get his English vocabulary up to the level, which would allow him to write raps in it. In 1998, he founded DL (Denver Lowlifes) with DJ Sevill and in 1999 they released their 6 track "On the Edge" demo, which was recorded at Wicked Creations Studio. Shortly after the demo was out, Scum was joined by Kasper of EWT to form LnG in 2000. Lyrikal Snuff Productionz was born. While working on their debut album, Scum was also involved in another horrorcore project – The Underground Cult, which broke up shortly after recording their "Insanity" Demo. Finally after many delays LnG's "Lyrikal Snuff" which was scheduled for release in 2001 was released in early 2002. As soon as it hit the stores, the drama began. Due to its graphic and violent content the CD was banned by a variety of stores and distribution companies resulting in the duo having a hard time trying to find venues, which would allow them to perform. Due to all those difficulties and the growing tension between Scum and Kasper on the personal level they decided that it was time to go their separate ways and LnG broke up in the fall of 2002 half way through the recording of their sophomore album – "Murderous Intentions." At that point Scum decided to pursue his solo career and after recording the "Solitary Confinement" and "Forced Suicide" demos in the last months of 2002 he hooked up with a local producer named Airtight, who produced his "Lethal Overdose" demo and his debut solo release "Enter the Asylum" which hit the stores in 2003. Later that year, Scum parted ways with Airtight Entertainment and moved on to release his self produced "Violent Verses" CD in 2004. It was time for Scum to hit the stage and that exactly what he did. Gore Hop (the word Scum uses to describe his style) listeners saw Scum performing with a variety of local and out of state acts. From small 21 and up clubs to larger all age venues, Scum did them all. During that time he signed a few local acts to LSP but felt that none of them had the dedication that he was seeking and eventually they were all released from the label. All but one. Borey a.k.a. Red Rhino who was featured on all of Scum's solo releases turned out to be what Scum describes as "Our most deadly lyrical weapon". Scum was so impressed with his skills, both live and in the studio that he went on to engineer and mix Borey's debut CD which was released on Lyrikal Snuff Productions in January of 2006 along with Scum's "Only Bodies Left Behind" CD which got delayed due to its extreme and disturbing artwork being rejected by 3 manufacturers before being pressed by MBC in Canada. "Only Bodies Left Behind" show Scum's tremendous growth as an artist both delivery wise and lyrically. The album features the work of 7 different producers and collaborations with a variety of established underground acts. All 3 of Scum's solo albums along with Borey's "Firzt Impulze" and LnG's "Lyrikal Snuff" are widely distributed in Colorado and in select states as well as online but unfortunately lack the worldwide distribution that is needed to introduce the underground fans all over the world to Scum's disturbing yet creative art. Meanwhile, 2006 is turning out to be a very good year for Scum and the rest of LSP with numerous shows, a variety of compilations and CD's featuring Scum being released, limited but increasing radio play, and an upcoming US Tour which will feature Scum and Borey performing with an undisclosed national act. There are rumors of another act being signed to LSP in the near future. Scum is also scheduled to hit the studio this fall to start recording for his next album and with a steadily growing fan base, increasing CD sales fueled by his dedication, productivity and total lack of sanity during live performances there is no stopping for Scum…not anytime soon! The Era of Dinner's Served is upon us!
