"Artist Atmosphere: TAKCALB"

Takcalb is a hip hop artist who was born and raised on the southeast side of Washington, D.C. He currently resides in Fort Worth, TX. His love for music began to flourish as a child after listening to vinyl recording of the Chimpmunks. Takcalb enjoys all types of music which could be seen as a youth with his involvement with various types of band/groups. He has been the bass player for GO-GO, Heavy Metal, Alternative Rock and Hip Hop bands. He was also a DJ for EDM going by the name of Dubstep. In 2007 his DJ name was Blackcat which was later changed to Takcalb after his co-foundation of the DJ organization Dub Commission. Takcalb is Blackcat spelled backwards.black

"Potluck Hotbox Holidaze Tour The Green Elephant in Dallas, Texas"

Takcalb: Next up was R2’s very own Takcalb (BLACKAT) who as far as I’m concerned needs no introduction in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. Takcalb has been rocking stages for years now he always kills it with his material and very greatful to his fans. On this particular night he didn’t let us down. He had the crowd going and knowing I was going to write this I paid attention to all the people that stopped what they were doing and watched the stage. Great job by Takcalb. - Scott Donihoo



Born at Greater Southeast Hospital in Southeast, Washington, DC. I grew up in the whole DMV area, which includes DC, MD & VA. My neighborhood is Oxon Hill/Ft. Washington, MD. The name of the neighborhood is called Rosedale(AppleGrove) area. I grew up listening to Washington DC's, own (chocolate city)GOGO music, created by the late CHUCK BROWN (GODFATHER OF GOGO MUSIC) and I also played bass guitar in a different GoGo band for a bit. Just like any black neighborhood there was always things to get into but I always kept to my music. As time went on I ventured out of my comfort zone to try other genres as a bass guitar player. Later, I got into Djing hip hop music for a while. While time passed, I moved to Texas and began another musical journey. While in Texas, creation of a Dubstep Dj crew in Ft. Worth, TX was born from Dragonman, Soy Capaz, Adan Lee and my dj name (Blackat) called Dub Commission. During a moment in time I decided to get involved with a project which led me to be named TAKCALB. After being involved with RonnieBlaze/CEO of R2 Music Enterprise LLC, I was given the opportunity to record Takcalb (self titled EP), 5 Straw Draw Young Nigga Shit (EP) at his studio. RonnieBlaze also gave me the opportunity to open up for artist by the names of STEVIE STONE ( Strange Music), RA THE RUGGED MAN, POTLUCK, JOHNNY RITCHER (KOTTON MOUTH KINGS), CLAAS, JEFF TURNER, G MO SKEE, WHITNEY PEYTON and many others. Now, working on this new project for 2 years with DeeJay Shaolin, producing 4 of the songs and SHAWN @sessionworks producing 3 of the other songs, it has hit its target with a party type feel EP. The featured artists on this project are Scooby Luchini, S.O.S, Tripsz, Amie Campbell, Miss Kisa and RONNIEBLAZE!
