Biography

If you haven't heard of Access Immortal by now, you are seriously missing out! He has been featured on numerous projects with Def Jukie Karniege [12 inch single "Make News" (2004) and the 12 inch single “Blazing Heat (2006)]. He has performed and collaborated with well-known independent hip-hop artists like Aesop Rock, El-P, Skyzoo, Vast Aire, Reef the Lost Cauze, Breez Evahflowin and L.I.F.E. Long! He's been compared to some of the greats in Hip-Hop, but says that he wants to maintain his own identity.

He developed a love for Hip-Hop in the early 90s and was influenced by Mobb Deep, Nas, Talib Kweli, Big Daddy Kane and others! He sharpened his lyrical skills on the streets of Bed Stuy, NY - the same streets that gave birth to greats such as Biggie Smalls and Jay-Z!

Access first introduced himself to the underground world of Hip-Hop in 2001 by regularly performing at an open mic at EOW (End of the Week) in Manhattan. Between 2001 and 2004, his local buzz grew. With stellar performances at CBGBs, SOBs, the Pyramid, Nightingales, and various venues throughout New York, Philly and DC, this rapper has left a trail of dazed fans anxious for another taste of his refreshingly original talent.

In April 2005, Early Spotter Records signed Access Immortal and agreed to promote and distribute his debut album, "Shades of Reality". Shades of Reality is a classic in every sense of the word with that vintage Hip-Hop sound, banging beats, Access' BK swagger and laid back flow. His flow is perfected and his content is powerful, touching on all topics from politics to the struggles of everyday life. Tom Doggett of Rap Reviews wrote, "Shades of Reality is a very solid record, especially for a debut".

In the winter of 2005, Access completed another independent mixtape entitled, "New York Yankee". This project differs from "Shades of Reality" in several ways. His versatility is still there, but he introduces a more gritty and dominant emcee then the one heard on previous projects. On Welcome to the Hood", the first track on the CD, he says "I had to get gutter for real cause yall trippin..." Tired of being mister nice guy, Acc showed his gritty versatility on this project!

In 2007 Access Immortal signed with Introspect Records, a Philly-based independent label providing distribution and promotion for "American Me". Access' sophomore album is finally here! It is bringing his story, his music and his passion to the world and giving a watered down Hip-Hop community exactly what they have been waiting for: raw talent.
