Biography

NonSpecific, born in 1983, has always been a nomad of sorts...more or less by force and not by choice. However, during the course of his life he found that his worldly travels helped shape and mold the mindset that he approaches the world and society with. Born in Arlington, Texas in 1983, and living the first four years of his life there, he was uprooted at an early age when his father moved his whole family to Bakersfield, California. From that point on, NonSpecific never lived in one spot for more than a couple of years. Bouncing back and forth from city to city, and more interestingly, country to country. While in the 5th grade and back in Texas, he was completely removed from U.S. Society and was transplanted to the southern coastline of China. It was in China that NonSpecific began to shape his life's philosophy on how the world worked. Realizing that people everywhere were generally the same wherever you go once you stripped them of "specifics", he began to be more understanding of different surroundings. Being able to adapt to any situation and being successful in difficult circumstances helped him to be able to enlighten himself through observations of the worlds around him. Though the years passed by and memory faded, Non was able to keep the lessons learned intact and was able to transform them into music. Good, quality, original Hip Hop music. During his teenage years, Non had moved back to Texas and linked up with several talented MC's and musicians. Forming the group "Figures of Speach" in 2000, the group is still intact as a stronghold and performs frequently in the Dallas, Texas area. "Figures of Speach"
(NonSpecific, Special aWp, CARDiAC, Heretic Skeptic) played a tremendous role in the honing of Non's skill in the MC kraft. The years of development will never be forgotten and the gratitude to all the people in Non's life will never be diminished by time or despair. "NonSpecific" is not just a name, it's a philosophy with world influence, but more importantly, world impact.

Discography
