Biography

The energetic hip hop style of 10 Crown has captured the attention of listeners throughout the Midwest. Originating in Louisville, Kentucky they have vied to create their own sound from influences like No Limit Records, E-40, Yukmouth, Tech N9ne, and Dr. Dre. Most people would say it’s a cross between Down South and West Coast rap. Really, it’s a hard-edged, up tempo, club-style rap.
10 Crown consists of John “Mr. Mash” Pfeiffer, Doug “M.M. Mozilini” Harman, Joe “N Doe” Roach, Eric “Medley” Medley, and InSub “Subzero” Beckley. The group was originally formed in 1999 and later completed by the addition of InSub Beckley and Eric Medley in 2003. Since then they have opened for major artists such as Juvenile’s UTP and Lil’ Scrappy, and up-and-coming artists such as Bukshot, Code Red, and Universal’s KD. 10 Crown also headlined one of Louisville’s biggest bashes of 2005 according to Velocity Magazine.
10 Crown wrote and produced all of the songs on their debut album, “The Tenth District” released in 2006. The broad range of the songs’ topics appeal to a more diverse audience than is typically associated with listeners of the hip hop genre. Two additional members can be heard on “The Tenth District” who have since moved to pursue other opportunities in hip hop. They are Matt “Contraband” Sturgeon and Kevin “Big Ke” Etherton. InSub Beckley produced the underlying music for all the tracks on the album except for “Put Yo Shyt On The Map” which was co-produced by Jeff Westenhofer. InSub Beckley produced the underlying music from his diverse musical background which includes electronica, rock, and classical piano. This wide range of influences has made way for beats that are unique, but are still in accordance with the mainstream trend.
