Bio

Icon is not your typical MC. Just ask anyone whose seen him perform. For one thing he tours with the Hard core Heavy Metal Funk band formally known thru out LA as Haitz. Icon is quick to point out
that it isn't a gimmick. "Katz in Tha Bronx know whut I'm doin". Says Icon "I'm still spittin that Official Curb Logic. I just needed to stretch my legs from the cramp conditions created by cooperate Hip Hop".

Icon was raised in Hawaii but relocated after receiving a full scholarship to a prominent acting conservatory in New York City. "It was krazy" he remembers " I would spend all day studying Shakespear, then jump on the six train and flow all night in the Bronx." After finishing with the conservatory Icon went on to do many Broadway and Off-Broadway plays. Most Noteably as "Oberon" in L.I. Shakespear festival, as well as, "American Kings Umps" at the Harlem Theatre which was nominated for an Audelco Award, and "The Night Word" which was a high light of the fringe festival. He has also guest starred on some of TV's hottest shows such as "Sopranos" and "C.S.I Miami".

As if things weren't poppin enough. He still found time to drop two of the most prolific underground Hip Hop albums to hit New York in a long time. Icons Group, "Apostles" are responsible for "The Dead Zone" and "Apostelyptic." Albums that have become almost legendary to heads around the Bronx who love to analyze their scripture like rhymes. Surprisingly, The same thing is starting to happen in Detroit, Philly, Denver and Los Angeles.
And believe it or not Australia. This next Australian Tour will be the Apostles third time down under. This time they're going with Naughty by Nature, Dead Prez and P.O.W.

Icon's solo project, "Chapter 7" is due to hit web on January 15th. With it's genre bending production it's likely to be labeled alternative Hip Hop. "Burn Tha Bush" for example effortlessly blends hard core Metal Rap with roots Reggae. "It's a growth" says Icon in the hotel room after an Apostles set at the South Park Music festival. "Many talented people are supporting and pushing for me to do my best work....and I confident that it is!"
