Biography

Celzius was born in the heart of Jersey City, NJ. He is Jersey City, blending the best and the worst experiences that those streets can offer! His rise from those corners started when his older brother, a local club and party DJ exposed him to real rap music. Celzius was heavily influenced by the genius of the sounds from that era, from artist like: Run-DMC, KRS-One, Rakim and Eric B., along with Big Daddy Kane, to name a few. After a chance meeting with Prince Rakeem aka The RZA, Celzius fully embraced the Hip Hop Culture and embarked on his quest to rock the mic, not with meaningless words but with consciousness blessing his rhymes: “Only a chosen few know the science”.

Once Celzius made the commitment to be an emcee, doors began opening up all around him. One of his friends was related to Horus Fly, the producer for Nice-N-Smoothe and M.O.P. Celzius spent many hours observing Horus Fly working in his recording studio, carefully crafting his beats and tailoring each song to its individual artist. This taught Celzius the difference between studio and live performance. Next Celzius received a guest spot in Young Essence’s (R&B group) debut music video that aired on BET, at this time he also got an extras role on HBO’s Subway Stories. This lead to him becoming an opening act for groups like: EPMD, and Killarmy (Wu-Tang Recording artist), etc. Celzius has performed at many of New York City’s hottest Hip Hop Clubs, and won numerous MC Battles. He has also performed at showcases like: The Spit Fire and Ear Talent Showcases.

Never resting, never waiting on anyone’s approval, Celzius co-founded BlakGlobe Records (an independent label) with Rhasun, the former road manger for Killarmy. Celzius isn’t just an artist, songwriter (ASCAP), and producer; he’s also an A&R. In January 2005 BlakGlobe released its debut album, a compilation of the seven artists currently signed to the label. The lead single, (Cold World produced by 4th Disciple), is creating a major buzz within the industry. He is an artist controlling creative sounds and its evolution… shades of the past!

Celzius isn’t fronting another movement he’s leading a REVOLT… back to CONSCIOUSNESS…
