Biography

Heist / ‘hist/ (1865) 1 slang: to lyrically commit armed robbery.
Click / ‘klik / (1581) 1 to succeed.

Their trademark: “No bullshit, No Gimmicks.” Their attitude: “We mean Business.” From the heart of hip-hop and the depths of rock-and-roll soul, the alternative hip-hop group known as HEISTCLICK brings you the next evolution in music. Alternative hip-hop refers to groups that refuse to conform to any of the traditional stereotypes of rap, such as gangsta, funk, bass, hardcore and party rap. Instead, HEISTCLICK blurs genres, drawing equally from a variety of musical influences. HEISTCLICK fuses heart pumping rock beats and hip-hop inspired lyrics to form their unique sound, appealing primarily to alternative music fans. The Bronx-based group is comprised of four emcees: MC CUTTA, COUNT BANKS, PETRO, and FRANK CASTLE a.k.a. FACEMAN representing the birthplace of hip-hop; and KILLAH B spinning wax for North Jersey. Together since June 2000 HEISTCLICK produced their first album SUPERPOWERS in 2002, and is currently working on their second official release. They manage and promote themselves, and create and own all of their music.
Since their inception, HEISTCLICK has been featured in “Word Up!” Magazine (April 04 and April ‘03), “Black Beat” (Aug. ’03), Da Rude (March/Apr. ’03), and The Bronx Times in numerous articles, to name a few. Their television and movie appearances include: The Grammy award winning Angels in America “HBO Special” (movie appearance), Public Access channel 67 “The Gary Axle Bank Show-Bronx Talk” “Live Interview” numerous times (Television), Channel 12 Bronx News “Interview” (Television), Urban Variety “Public Access” (Live performance) (Television). HEISTCLICK takes pride in their uncanny live show. The group has played most notable venues in the tri-state area including CBGB’s, Soul Café, Speed, CMJ Convention, and many others. They have performed with Sadat X from Brand Nubian, and opened for Rahzel at SUNY Plattsburgh Spring Fest. At Pocono’s Mountain Film Festival (PA) they performed for members of the cast of the Sopranos, Jack Palance, and Billy D. Williams. They have also performed at Club Med Cancun, St. Halifax Canada, and other venues in New Jersey and Florida.
In 2003 HEISTCLICK won a Jammy Award for “Best New Hip-Hop Group in NYC.” They are Artist of the Month 48+ months and running on www.Collegeartist.com.

WATCH TOWER

BANKS

We’re the renegades castaways
Outlaws to the game like Thomas Paine was
They masquerade us who’s to blame us
Now I’m set to explode like a hand grenade does
No peace to cease the police to show peace
Unleash beef no relief PEACE!
Underneath the beast it lies dormant
Forced to use force taught to use caution
Tossed to the grind with the subliminal blinded
Like KRS One cuz I’m criminal minded
I run with soldiers amongst the vultures
Now you’re under control cuz ya do what they told ya
It’s the frontlines we’re livin the battle
Slowly I walk through the valley of shadow
And there’s no man that’s gonna keep me down
Said the thief to the king when he snatched the crown

We’re burnin down The Watch Tower
Plowman- Plowman dig my earth
We’re burnin down The Watch Tower
Plowman- Plowman dig my earth

FACE

How many stars need to fall before we learn
To burn the hype out and put your lights out
I’m sittin here thinking like who’s the wiser
Then act like Chuck D and fight the power
Who would’ve thought we’d rush the Watch Tower
Then shower the game with acid reign every hour
Devour the corporate politicians in office
They keep watchin you from satellites in orbit
So hold your breath now walk the frontline
The streets are a battlefield this war’s a gold mine
Sent to abuse you here to confuse you
Jokers strategically placed to amuse you
So tell me who knew these thieves would fool you
Too bad none of us act like we use to
We’re crazy now we heard the lie
I see said the blind man when they stole his sight

We’re burnin down The Watch Tower
Plowman- Plowman dig my earth
We’re burnin down The Watch Tower
Plowman- Plowman dig my earth

CUTTA

It’s like your runnin through a dream but you can’t run faster
But I come through to cut the strings of the puppet master
Break the chains Unleash the rage
Smash the padlocks and get out of the cage
Now we’re on the run and we can’t escape
It’s like everywhere you go you get caught on tape
The eyes are watchin they’re looking for you
We walk under the radar they took us for fools
They wanna beef up security and bring more heat
I pull an NWA man Fuck the Police
Now I’m the bad guy on top of the list
Getting followed by spies cuz the government’s pissed
Uncle Sam’s finger’s shakin like “no you don’t”
Holdin HeistClick down I know you won’t
It’s freedom of speech so I’m usin it well
There’s no heaven on earth so I’m bringin the hell

We’re burnin down The Watch Tower
Plowman- Plowman dig my earth
We’re burnin down The Watch Tower
Plowman- Plowman dig my earth

We’re burnin down The Watch Tower
Plowman- Plowman dig my earth
We’re burnin down The Watch Tower
Plowman- Plowman dig my earth
