Biography

I am a Hiphop artist who's roots spawn from the "Golden Era". I have been involved in this culture since 1985 as a Bboy. Then progressing through the ages of Graffwritin' then Emceein' and Producing. I established the Legendary HipHop crew FSC from Berkeley Ca. And have been appearing on mixtapes since 1995. First album release was FSC Oneness 2001. with longime crew members and brothers Gigs one and DeeJay Rakus. Solo efforts include "Natural Reaction" produced by Fanatik released on Bomb HipHop 2004. "Nac One's Underground Classics" 2007. (self produced). and many unreleased tracks and projects to be announced.

I’m Nac One, an emcee and b-boy. I’ve been putting in work in hip-hop for more than twenty years in the Bay Area, and have recently moved to Humboldt County where I have been making a significant impact. Whenever hip hop stars roll through Humboldt, I get the call to open the show. Not just because every promoter and band knows I’m reliable, but because I perform in front of more hip hop heads than anyone else in the surrounding two hundred miles.

My secret weapon is that I’ve been organizing in Northern California for a long time and roll with a whole community. I Rock shows with my crew "The Meeting of the Minds" (Nac One, Los Blooms, Thoth and DJ Chocwon). I also head the Fantastik Fam, a HipHop family trio of emcees (my son Mic 133 and daughter Emcee Mystique), and our DeeJay is the Bay Area legendary graffiti artist Gigster!

Humboldt County is wild for HipHop. I’ve had the honor to recently open for the GZA, Africa Bambaataa, KRS-ONE, Brand Nubian, C-Rayz Walz, Immortal Technique, Redman, U-God, Masta Ace & EMC, Dead Prez, Percee P, Wildchild, Planet Asia, Oh No, Medaphor the list goes on and on... this incredible northern California coast has developed into a developing base of HipHop Kulture and our shows are regularly packed with hundreds of party-going HipHop fans.

Set List

I do different sets of my original music ranging from 15min to 1hr. I typically do a 1/2hr. set solo or 45min sets with my group "Meeting of the Minds". I usually do a medly of my music especially if I do a shorter set, that way I do more of a variety in a quick mix style.
I have been writing new material of unreleased songs that I will add into the set to keep it fresh, but I typically do a lot of my material from Natural Reaction my first solo album.
a typical 30 min. set would go like this:
1.Natural Reaction
2.Streak
3.Check the books
4.Bay Area reps

6. Nac One
7. Seasons Change
8. Thunderboldts
