My music comes from the heart. I make music that people can relate to so they can feel the things that I was going through at different points in my life.


Mr. Crisis, also known as, Tyrell Lindsey is a Harlem bred Hip Hop artist. He grew up in the notorious Polo Grounds Housing Projects on 155th Street and 8th Ave in Harlem, NY without his father and was raised by his grandparents.  Growing up a victim of his own circumstance, it was sometimes difficult for Mr.Crisis to choose between a lucrative street life and his music career.  However, he was always conscious of his gift to make music, and with the support of his family and friends, Mr.Crisis released his first mixtape in late 2005 titled "Terror Alert". The mixtape was very well received and helped establish a fan base within his neighborhood.

Mr.Crisis worked tirelessly on his second installment "Terror Alert Pt. 2 - Line 'Em Up, I Knock 'Em Down" as he aimed to increase his fan base beyond his community.  As a result of all his hard work, he received the JUSTO Mixtape Award for Street Album of The Year in April of 2008. Not only was this award a huge accomplishment, but it is also one of a kind as Mr. Crisis is the first artist to ever win that award.  

Over the next few years Mr.Crisis dedicated his life to perfecting his craft and developing himself into an artist that will one day reach millions. He went on to release, Terror Alert Part 3 - "Dumbin' Out", B.O.M.B.S and B.O.M.B.S. 2., with each release creating positive momentum for him amongst some within the industry. He's been seen on BETs 106 & Park, featured on Allhiphop.coms The Breeding Ground as well as  He's rocked some of the top venues in New York; Don Hills, Jamrock (LI), S.O.B.S and was one of the headliners for the CMJ Mixtape Masters Marathon at the Public Assembly where he rocked a 30-minute set. Through the years Mr.Crisis has also performed alongside artist like Loon (Bad Boy Records), Red Cafe (Bad Boy Records), Joell Ortiz (Shady Records), Grafh, Charles Hamilton, Mickey Facts and Fred The Godson.


In late 2010, Mr.Crisis got his first radio spins courtesy of DJ Cocoa Chanel as she regularly had his song "Thats Uptown" in rotation on New York Citys #1 station for Hip Hop & R&B Hot 97 FM.  From 2011 to 2013, Mr.Crisis took a break from the grind of the music business as he dealt with a series of personal issues and lost focus on music.  He got caught up making money promoting parties and dabbling in the street life.  Despite his hiatus, Mr.Crisis remained in high demand amongst his fans, which eventually prompted his return to music in late 2013.

Early Monday morning March 16th, 2014, Mr.Crisis nearly lost his life in a bus accident on his way to Atlanta for some meetings regarding his music. This near death experience reinvigorated Mr.Crisis and his desire to become one of the best MC's to ever grab the mic. Citing that God left him here for a reason, Mr.Crisis is as focused as he's ever been in his career.  The time is now.

On September 11th, 2014, Mr.Crisis released his 6th installment titled, "B.O.M.B.S. 3".  The project was recorded at StadiumRed Recording Studios in Harlem, which boasts 22 Grammy Nominations, 11 Grammy Awards and is home to super producers Just Blaze and Omen.
