Biography

Since his debut on 2003's cult classic Camouflage, which prominently featured Cannibal Ox's Vordul Mega, billy woods has been a bit of an enigma. Too street for the "conscious" crowd, too intelligent for the punchline crowd and too experimental for the boom-bappers. Yet, somehow, the faceless african Mc managed to amass an impressive following as both a solo artist and part of the duo, The Super Chron Flight Brothers. Their last album as a group was called "Cape Verde", dropped in early 2010 and immediately was hailed as a masterpiece by sources as varied as The Wire, The Village Voice and potholesinmyblog.com. Now billy woods returns as a solo artist with a scathing new LP titled History Will Absolve Me, due second quarter 2011.
