Biography

I found something that is special. A group that is incredible and I believe in.” LL Cool J
“Rebellious…13 is pure fire” Wyclef Jean
Signed by LLCoolJ, 13 is a high-energy hybrid of hip-hop, rock and rap. The cross genre mix is an original and unfamiliar combination that can only be described as all forms of popular music coming together to create a fresh sound. ( I WANT TO CHANGE THIS PART-SEE IF THE GUYS HAVE A BETTER DESCRIPTION)

In December 2009, Boomdizzle signed 13 after LL Cool J heard a sample and instantly realized their talent. 13 is currently recording their debut album at Wyclef Jean's Platinum Sound Studios. Pop lyrics backed by a rock band and interlaced with hip hop beats, the album will define the future of music.

Based in New York City, 13 was founded by Michael Wainer, a.k.a. M1K3 M1K3 began studying guitar, piano and voice at a young age. He is a multi-talented artist who co-writes lyrics and brilliantly delivers on the guitar.

Veronica Bellino illuminates the band's hip-hop rock sound with her sense of groove and musicianship. Her unique drumming style is characterized by intricate percussive patterns shaped by hard-rock visionaries and tribal influences.

Right when you think the musicality can't be topped, DJ Crossphada cuts in an extra beat, adding a hip-hop edge and making 13’s music beyond incredible. DJ Crossphada has been scratching since the 90's and has played for many big names in hip-hop such as Common, De La Soul and Talib Kweli.

13 is on a radio-friendly path to the biggest stages in the world!
