Bio

Al Lyric began his muscial career at the age of 9 as a brass musician. After seven years of experience as a musician Al decided to make an attempt at putting his writings and poetry, a hobby since the age of 8 years old, to music fashioned after some of the more influential artists of the period. "We're talking World Class Wrecking Crew, NWA, RUN DMC, Doug E. Fresh, Slick Rick the Rula, Candyman, Big Daddy Kane, EPMD, Heavy D, Nemesis outta Dallas, Dr. Rock, D.O.C, Digital Underground, Parliament Funkadelic, and I'm sure a slew of other people I can't even think about right now," says the twenty-four year old rapper as he lowers his beer. "This is like late eighties man! I can't help BUT be old-school about what I do. I look at half of these guys performing now and it's so hard to be into what they're doing when I know where they got it from." As early as age 14, Al began talking with major record labels about his future. "The most memorable of those conversations would had to have been with Dallas Austin. Dallas is big now, but when he called me then, it was monumental to my life. After asking me a few general questions, he asessed my potential and my power and gave me more help in a couple of conversations than some people have in twenty years.
With that kind of influence and desire, Al Lyric entered the sophomoric stage of his hip hop career upon his entrance into the Dallas Arts Magnet school. Here, Al furthured his musical career sharing halls and classrooms with the likes of grammy award winning alumni, Roy Hardgrove, members of the Spin Doctors, record-breaking Gospel group God's Property feat. Kirk Franklin, and mulit-platinum recording artists Erika Badu and Nora Jones. During his high school years, Al Lyric attained a new standard for craftsmanship and creativity that spilled into his performances and recordings. Al began performing with a hip-hop group "Ill Elements" which maintained local notariety throughout and past the span of its existence. From there, Al went on to participate in a joint independent label venture between friends dubbed "Killa Hitz" studios spearheaded by Francisco Martinez.
After leaving Killa Hitz, Al joined a group in the works originally called The Stay Nice Crew. This group eventually became The Constructacons, which saw surprising popularity and support throughout the underground scene of the southwest. The Constructacons opened for many of the most popular underground hip hop groups in the country now. As a member of this group, Al garnered the respect of being "the golden boy" of the group. "That wasn't really a title anybody wanted that deserved it. It just suggests the type of ego that I don't have and don't like." All that said, Al Lyric still understood full well while being modest, only the best member could be given that title. He replies, "I took it with a grain of salt."
Since then, Al has taken his solo career to new heights relying mainly on his skills and experience as well as his love for the music. He has currently partnered himself with Conspiracy Media in addition to being the program director of Conspiracy Radio with owner and co-hort JJ Chianese. In addition to this, Al has released multiple bodies of work, performed at every local hip hop venue and small tours.
If there's one area where I know what I'm doing, it's hip hop. I've been doing this over half of my life, and will probably continue to do it until I die. I know I make good music, because I don't know how to make any other kind. I just want the world to hear it all once before it passes me by.
