Decipher




Born Danny Chung and raised in Philadelphia, Decipher experienced more ups and downs in his youth than many go through in a life time. To call his family broken would be a huge understatement. Conceived by a woman he would grow up calling “aunt” and a man that may have fathered him but was never a father, his biological mother was left with no choice but to give him up to be raised by her sister. In addition to all the family drama came financial struggles as well. He saw first hand how hard his immigrant parents struggled for that slice of American Pie as they worked their way out of the ghetto only to find the taste was fleeting and bittersweet. Incidentally, his newfound life of hard-earned luxury wasn’t meant to last. It appeared lady luck held a grudge against the Chung clan, and before you could say ‘Good Life’ it was straight back to the ‘Hood Life’ for them all. Despite the tumultuous drama and turmoil, Decipher was able to find the one thing that remained steady in his life. Thanks to an uncle that moonlighted as a party DJ, he got his first introduction to a music that served as the voice for a people that needed to be heard because no one else could speak for them. Young Decipher had discovered Hip-Hop. The renaissance of this genre in the early 90′s served as the aural back drop that shaped and inspired him to understand the power of true honest expression. It wasn’t too long before he realized that the very voices blaring through the headphones of his walkman weren’t just those of the musical artists; they were also his voice. These MC’s weren’t just speaking to him, they were speaking for him. This epiphany helped him to realize his life should no longer imitate art, rather it should create it. He had found his identity and it enabled him to stand firm in the midst of the twists and turns he was constantly experiencing. Even when starting off as a battle MC, it was immediately apparent that he possessed undeniable raw talent. Decipher not only had the requisite wit and charisma, but more importantly he had the heart to turn ordinary words into a powerful message. It should be no surprise that he quickly found himself in the company of other like-minded artists. After linking up with Johnnyphlo and the independent label Treble & Bassment, Decipher worked hard to share his voice, releasing critically acclaimed mix tapes and albums while collaborating with some of the best Asian American talent such as Ailee, Andrew Choi, Chan, and Shogunna. Fast forward to the present, Decipher is now with MuZo Entertainment, the spiritual successor to TnB; and he continues his mission to make sure he is heard. Just as the Hip-Hop MCs of yesteryear provided a constant influence that shaped his identity, Decipher aims to do the same for today’s alienated Asian Americans who also struggle to find their place in a society where there are too few voices to properly represent them. Decipher speaks for anyone tired of having big media America dubbing over them like a bad kung-fu flick and is here to provide the raw audio track where subtitles arenot necessary. Because now he isn’t just speaking to us, he’s speaking for us.


HIMOTHY




Bio: .. Himothy da first is truly the first of his kind. His unique name parallels a unique flow that he developed at a young age and perfected while incarcerated. While its true that Himothy spent most of his days around hardened criminals winning numerous talent shows in prison, don’t think for a second that he can be categorized as another gangsta rapper lacking real lyrical skills and profound thought in his music. With an intense street work ethic Himothy has created a buzz in the streets and his reputation as a serious player in the entertainment industry has spread like wildfire since his release. His appearance on the Come Up Show with Cosmic Kev on Power 99 FM (the largest hip-hop show in the nation) in Philly only added fuel to the fire. He has co-produced tracks with platinum selling producer Junius Bervine. He has worked on tracks with artists such as Gillie Da Kid of Major Figgaz, Oschino and Peedi Crack of State Property, E-Ness, and Ab-Liva of the Re-Up Gang, Joey Jihad, Meek Millz, Wacko from the hit song “Nolia Clap” ft. Juvenile, Mike Knox and The Ape Gang. Himothy was featured on the remix to the hit single “Get Down On The Ground” a track that became an anthem for the tri-state area. Himothy’s clear ability to recognize a hit when he hears one and his natural ability with a pen and a pad makes him the most valuable asset to his record label Bredwinaz Ent. as the CEO and first artist of the label. His street cred, his unbelievable skill, drive, and commanding stage presence will ensure that Himothy and his label Bredwinaz Ent. will become household names for a long time to come. He was mentored by Grammy Award winner Robert Waller also known as E.S.T. He has worked with the likes of the legendary hit maker Carvin who has produced hit records for Usher as well as others. He has recently appeared on Batcave Radio alongside Young Chris and D.j. Diamond Kutz. where he stood out completely. HIs Life story will also be available in book form soon, a movie is also in the makings. He was nominated for best new artist at the 2008 Philly Hip-hop Awards, and nominated again in 2009 with his team TrapStreet where they went on to win the award for best new rap group. Also he attended the B.E.T. hip hop awards in downtown Atlanta and was invited by B.e.t’s own Anton who was responsible for the Dj Diamond Kutz show. He was also the very first Artist to perform @ Club Onyx where he later on went to perform alongside of O.J. da Juiceman where he displayed an incredible performance. He has also performed @ several colleges such as Temple University, Widener University, the radio station at Lincoln University, just to name a few. He will be on tour soon to a town near you. He has a very bright future in music. He currently has his own in house studio ran by talented Producer Ebola . Himothy will really impacting music in 2011!

16

As a kid coming up in a house with my great Aunt our music variety was more of the 60’s music than anything else. My mother wasn’t around much, so when I heard songs about missing someone I would think of her. When I got a lit tle older my cousin came to me with a tape and said you have to hear this. It was Keith Murray, and that inspired me. The first show I ever went to was public enemy, and somehow I got backstage in search of Flava Flav. To my surprise Flav was not there, and I asked Chuck Dee where Flav was, and he told me he was locked up. He explained that he got locked up because someone was taking pictures of his children and he did something he shouldn’t have done. I saw the perfect opportunity so I asked if I could take Flav’s spot on stage because I knew all the words. He told me,” No, not this time young fellow you’ll get your turn.” Those words were all it took for me to know that one day I would have a chance to be on stage performing my own music. There was another situation when I was hanging with the Ruff Ryder’s, and one of the members named Romeo had me bat tling everyone he could find. He told me that he was going to get me signed because he thought I was so good, and he told me he wanted me to bat tle Drag-On. So I saw Drag-On coming out of the store and I went over to him, and told him that Romeo wanted us to bat tle. He asked me “So, you want to bat tle?”, and I said “No, not really”, and he said alright and walked away. Looking back I feel like I get mad at myself because I froze up. At a young age my life was almost cut short when I was gunned down at the age of 16. I was on my way to a show known as power house with an acquaintance of mine, when some guy got in our way. I knew we were about to get robbed, and as turned to try to run all I could hear was gun shots as I hit the ground, hard. I could still hear shots ringing hoping that this man had not shot me. I was shot three times, and was told I would never walk again, but when you have strong will, and God u can do things that they tell you, you can’t or won’t be able to do. This was one of the things that put my career on hold. After being shot I then hit the streets selling drugs, and even got labeled as a stick up kid. My heart turned cold, and that got me put in jail for 6 ½ yrs. In jail I would use rap to vent, and this allowed me to win a state wide show coming in first place. That’s when I decided to be the best at what we call hip hop. Along the way it was many more artists that played a big part in my inspiration like Biggie, Pac, Big Pun, Az, Cool Cee, Study Bee, and LL Cool J to name a few. Now I’m knee deep in this music thing, I have done music with many people to name a few K. Smith, Himothy, M Class, Ocesse, Clossies, Lil Dame, Prida, Got tie, and Ape Gane. I could do music with anyone in this city. To this day I put my all in all that I do. Now at the age of 26 I have a beautiful wife, and three handsome sons, so this is not just a job it’s my life.
