Biography

When it comes to hip-hop, Mastermind is not only a breath of fresh air and a visionary, but a movement.
He dares to dream, he doesn’t want to take hip-hop back through roads already pioneered, rather move it forward in the authoritarian style that is all his own. He challenges what the role of an MC is, dissects what it means to “be hood”, and offers his insight on what love and life is all about, ultimately challenging himself for the answers .With the anticipation of his first album (Watch Me Fly) running through the Twin Cities Streets, Mastermind is set to show the world that passion and creativity in hip-hop are very much alive and have continued to grow.
Mastermind is a TC representative born in Greenville, Mississippi and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota. He started as a young hoodlum / god body spiting fire with his lyrical twin St.Paul Slim in a rap duo known as Da C.U.T. later to be re-born as The Mighty G.O.B.
They built a reputation for spitting what they called Harsh Reality Rap.

Rush (The Lions Den Productions CEO) says, “A classic album.” We heard from Mastermind on several local and international projects in 2008. Some of his more notable track appearances are; ” Move with me” from Heiruspec’s return self titled album, Barack O Trama’s “Lehime”, “Souldiers of Ms. Fortune” off of St. Paul Slim’s Slim Cases EP. He is also slated to appear on the tracks “Kill You” which is on The Ringleadaz’s Latest mix CD installment Kill University, and, “Look Man” on Mainstream Productions compilation TBA in July “09”.
Listening to the range of musical styles you’ll see that Mastermind is very versatile and gifted in the art of spittin. His credibility and skill are not surprising considering he was being snuck into night clubs he was not old enough to attend so he could rip the mic in the mid to late 1990’s. He has laid a strong underground foundation with crews like F.O.S. i.e., Raw Villa, City Slickaz, Ring Leadaz, and his home team Guardians of Balance, preparing him for his solo debut. He also attended the infamous St. Paul Central High School, KNOWN for producing some of the greatest MC’s the city has ever seen, and the story ends like this, Mastermind is no exception to the rule….
