Artist Info

13 Amp

Powered by Audioscrobbler™The following was copied from his myspace.

-13 Amp- started off as just another underground music fan. After a friend let him borrow an Insane Clown Posse album he started getting into more underground hip hop, at that time mostly Horrorcore. When he went online and going to different underground music stores and started getting the music the more his love grew for it.

He started getting into groups like House Of Krazees (2 members later formed Twiztid), Necro, Ill Bill and Eminem. As he looked more and more into it he started reading more into the lyrical aspect of it all. He then started rapping on beats he downloaded on the Internet under the name -HiTTMaNN-. It was mostly horrorcore rap with a little bit of punchline rap. As his musical tastes grew, so did his own style.

As he continued rapping he started listening to more lyrical hip hop, such as Chino XL, Canibus, Eminem, Big L etc. He started battling on the Internet and at school. He soon changed his name to -13 Amp- after hearing a rapper on Aftermath by the name of Hitman. He started writing a whole lot more and got into a battle style of rhyming.

He met an underground producer by the name of Skadad. He was making his own beats and rapping over them. He was on a horrocore tip but also seemed to have a little battle rap style to it. Skadad started producing a whole lot more and started to stop rapping as much. He changed his name to Badan and started producing beats for -13 Amp. They then released his first ep entitled "Mental ILLness". It was an independently released album. Printed covers and vinyl design cd-rs, -13 Amp- started selling and giving them out around his hometown of Shelby, NC. Featuring his friends Created and Dore Uno they set the tone for -13 Amp- as he went on to new projects.

In late 2004 he started working on a new album. Again working with Badan beats and collaborating with Created and Dore Uno it started out working out just as Mental ILLness did. But just as the seasons change people change and Badan started making a different and new style of beats, which made -13 Amp- evolve his style too. They both then started focusing on the album more and in early summer 2005 they released the FREE album "Monotheistic" with their friends Murderators Entertainment. The first album released on Murderators it is up for free download at Monotheistic EP

Badan and -13 Amp- released and promoted the album but still starting working on another album. Badan produced a lot of beats in a short time and gave them all to -13 Amp- to work on while Badan came to America from his home in Sweden in the exchange student program. -13 Amp- is now working on the new album entitled 'Get Professional Help' and is planned on a Fall 2006 release. It will be pro-pressed and professionally recorded. Things are looking big for -13 Amp's future and only time will tell how far he will go.
