Bio

Haynie O’Neal Smith was born on June 4th 1984. Haynie grew up in a poverty area in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with his mother and two older sisters. His father, Haynie Smith Sr. passed away when he was Twenty-Seven, and when Haynie Jr. was only four years old. Haynie was introduced to music by his parents and discovered his passion for hip hop music, at the age of nine. By the age thirteen, Haynie started writing music with his child hood friend William Stokes. He was musically influenced by Michael Jackson, because of his talent and stage presence, Tupac, because he discussed political issues in his music, Master P, due to his business sense, and Bone Thugs N Harmony, because of how they harmonize music. In 2000, Haynie formed a duo with William called G-field. G-field, recorded their first demo song in the studio “You Can Be Cared for”. Haynie attended school in Milwaukee, graduating from Washington High School at age seventeen in 2002.
Following High School Haynie decided to take a break from college due to unknown major. In 2003, Haynie purchased his first Drum Machine, “DR-5”. G-field then became a trio group. In 2004, Haynie furthered his education by majoring in Business Management at Milwaukee Area Technical College. The group contacted SEB Studios, in Milwaukee. Later, they released their first album G-field: “Poor Man’s Dream”, locally to test their music skills Haynie supplied 97% of production for the album, from his DR-5. After being turned down by record labels and radio programmers, G-field went back to its original format of a duo group. Haynie researched the music industry and continued to further his education in Business Management at Concordia University of Wisconsin. Haynie later became a proud parent of a set of twins. After Haynie received a degree in business, He continued to work on music with his childhood friend. He decided to get production and recording lessons from SEB Studios. Haynie and Will reformed the group G-field, naming it “Generations Field”. While Haynie was working on an album with his partner, He analyzed the music industry. He noticed that it would be a one in a billion chance to get signed by a record label. Haynie intrepid the knowledge he gained in College and from SEB Studios. He formed a small independent record label in Milwaukee, WI called Emerging Music Entertainment. Generations Field later released the album “Live from Poverty Hills”, under the new formed record label. Haynie produced 98% of the album with more production equipment.With more success from radio programmers, fans, and, retail distribution Emerging Music became a home for Generations Field.
