Biography

Absyte born as Camille Maria Jones is a southside of Chicago Native, who has loved entertainment and been involved in different elements of entertainment since she was about 4 years old. Absyte grew up in Chicago with her mother and grandmother who often would make her the highlight at family gatherings and church functions. From singing Michael Jackson's "Off-the-Wall" to break dancing the latest hip hop break beats, Ab has always seen the light and path to entertainment. Hip Hop was a love that was born for Absyte as a fan of the game. Hip Hop was the right mix of the music she loved and the poetry she would often write. At an early age she remembers writing stories of a drug and bug infested basement which she slept in with her infant sister as her mother drained her life away in a crack pipe. It is sometime a mystery to many including Ab how her life did not turn down the same dark path as her mothers. As the artist tells it that dark path is right around the corner every day she lives on this earth. "Everyday I wake up I thank God for all I have and what I didn't do wrong today...At the end of my day I thank God for all that could have happen that did happen for the good and for all those things that didn't happen for the bad that spared my life another day. Absolute Swagga is a mix of the daily struggle she speaks of. Worrying is not good but according to the artist there's sometimes no way to avoid it. And if you thought there was going to be a positive "happy ever after ending" to that statement ..think again....according to the artist in her life that is the game of life we are pitched everyday....we take the good with the bad and hope we don't strike out.

Absolute Swagga is a mixtape produced as many mixtapes are with a mix of original hip hop tracks and a mix of well-known industry tracks. This fusion is accompanied by a deep threads mix of battle rymes wrapped with a mix of socially-conscience lyrics that again show that delicate balance of life as Absyte knows it. Original tracks were produced by some of the best producers in Chicago, Meesak (Kaseem Harris), Tray From Block 1, E-Jilla, Bobcat and many more. Industry tracks were from classic artists from Biggie to De-La-Soul...Maceo if your out there Ab says "get at your gurl" your tracks are blazin and of course Absyte works with nothing but the best...Her future aspirations would be to be able to make a true living from what she loves to 1st afford her daughter an un-marred or as close as she can provide childhood...all the best in life for her daughter Jolie to succeed no matter what she chooses in life. Her daughter is number 1 and nothing (including the music) will deter her from the goal of making her daughters life the very best it can be. Industry-wise Absyte has aspirations of working only with the best Pharrell, Neptunes, Kanye West, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis....yes we said Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis....Ab's take on it is they are the pentical of what the best in this music industry is "They make huge stars into colossal stars...and that is what the best gives ....the best....PERIOD".

DANGER BELOW

Written By: CAMILLE JONES

Hook:
Danger Below
Hot times in the city
Oh what a pity
Niggas is livin grimy plus gritty
Don't fall victim to the ills of society
Live on and live life with longevity

In the streets are death tolls and blood tracks trailin
the poor be the righteous but the rich be prevailin
We got kids memories laced in the chalk lines
while us bridgades send shorties to the front lines
Its a war goin on and some of yall don't even know it
There are some that do but try har not to show it
We got black rats that trick off for fat white cats
toting microsoft bats and million dollar contracts
the evil saps settin up the lives of the "chosen" child
set free to wild travelin down these jungle miles
Street ghettos thats just the "black" way of livin
caught up in a system that know they aint give us shit
hold on smile and be strong cause it won't be long for the liberation.

In This Hood

Written By: Camille M. Jones

Hook:
Cause in this hood we live in
the streets are still sinnin
the cars are still bendin
aint no type of street given
and aint no good livin
them cases still pendin
niggas locked up and no type of street winnin

I still stand strong from the backyards of starvin
Stealin candy from the store with my cousin marvin
Those times we hard & dreamin of livin large &
We used the hard times to balance lifes margins
hustle city streets give a fuck about your breaks
hard knoxk street level business niggas on the take
bukins held daily for theives and those fake
drug dealers and fiens run the streets moneies made
63rd and stony island wilin
pimp niggas stylin hoes still smilin
Over the years the city did some street level changes
some niggas move whyle others are rearrangin
From your hood to my hood its a big market
school age children playin they a "prime" target
I got to get the type of money change my lifestyle
Doe that will pay for a proper place for my child.

Hook:
Cause in this hood we live in
the streets are still sinnin
the cars are still bendin
aint no type of street given
and aint no good livin
them cases still pendin
niggas locked up and no type of street winnin

Coke sales on the block left this mama scared, she wouldn't see her boy no more and she wasn't prepared to have her first born lay six feet under so she took to the street like a blast of thunder went to the corner asked Bo had he seen her son through the drunk he said that he was the one with the gun she heard a gun pop and felt her heart drop turned around and the beats in her heart stop she knew it was him laid out wit the blood from his mouth turned around and seen the gunman he was headed south looked back her boy as he asended to heaven a tear dropped from her eye and it was a quarter to seven people scattered on the block as the cops arrived her eyes flooded with tears and she felt like she died no leads from the investigators she couldn't help her son there was no one in the world she loved greater.
