Charming, self-produced midwestern hip hop artist, drawing influences from an eclectic blend of sources, with an honest approach to songwriting, and energetic showmanship. Imagine if Spike Lee directed Ferris Beuller with a budget of $1000...that's Greg Enemy.

Biography

From his vintage/ thrift store attire and grandfather-like glasses, to his laid back demeanor and air-tight production and lyricism, you can tell by first sight that Kansas City's wunderkind Greg Enemy is "not your ordinary rapper".

Exposed to a wide variety of music genres at a very young age, Greg Enemy (born Greg Henry, November 18, 1987) developed an ear for all types of sounds; ranging from big band and bebop jazz, to classic soul and rnb, to funk and rock & roll, which would later use in his production methods. Combining various styles to create a sound of his own, while also taking cues from the artist he looked up to like A Tribe Called Quest, Outkast, Mos Def, Nas, UGK, Crucial Conflict & De La Soul. Fusing East Coast rhyme styles with a pinch of Southern twang, Greg Enemy's casual flow and lyrics have been described as witty, sharp, intellectual, and abstract, with a dash of down to earth, Midwestern charm…and it all comes together in a fun-filled, high energy live show that's second to none and always leaves the crowd wanting more.

In September of 2008, he released his self-produced, self-titled EP on his MySpace page (www.myspace.com/gregenemy) and blog (www.gregenemy.wordpress.com), to much critical acclaim in the Kansas City hip-hop scene, touting his shortcomings on tracks like "Square" and "Fly Ass Glasses" and spinning detailed, autobiographical tales on "Down to Earth" and the title track "Greg Enemy". The success of the Greg Enemy EP has allowed him to go on to helm the sole production duties of two more EP's; one with Topeka native Stik Figa entitled Babylon EP (Feb. 2009) and most recently KC's own Dutch Newman entitled Dutch Newman and Greg Enemy made an EP…wanna hear it? (May 2009). Currently he is working on a full length solo project called A Little Bit of Daylight (with the lead off single "The Protocol" starting to gain momentum locally), which he plans on releasing in the spring of 2010. Always with his hand in several baskets at once, be on the lookout for a few more collaboration projects and features by Mr. Enemy throughout the year.
