• How crazy is Terry Radjaw? Crazy enough to rap over songs from Nancy Sinatra, Prince Paul and Bob Marley.

Crazy enough to give away his CDs, because he can't sell them (copyright issues, he'd have Nancy Sinatra's boots kicking him all over court).

Crazy enough to write a song called "I'm an ... ." Well, it's not something you'd call yourself, most likely.

The New Jersey native sprays his creative rhymes at Fremont's Nectar on Sunday (10 p.m., $6). For a peek into his brain: www.myspace.com/terryradjawmusic. - The Seattle Times


• Also in the hip-hop game, hard-edged rap crew Dim Mak and hilarious MC — he boasts of being the last thing you'd want to be called — Terry Radjaw whoop it up at Chop Suey (9 tonight, $5). - The Seattle Times

Bio

Terry Radjaw grew up in New Jersey influenced by the likes of Tribe, Nice n Smooth, and Redman. He then moved to Philadelphia in 1999 where his 'rapping career' began. His performing foundation started in this city at basement shows, house parties, and a weekly hip hop show called 'The Gathering' which was ran by Out For Stardom affiliates. Working with Tech Support: Onist MC Drew Coleman, DJ Properganda, Kenny Raw, and DJ Autum, Terry started perfecting his style and growing into the emcee he is today. He then moved to Seattle in October of 2005 to start fresh and regroup all of his thoughts. So far so good, the city has really embraced him, and he feels he is doing something the city isn't expecting in hip hop. Being that he doesn't have a producer/dj he started working on a solo project entitled 'Terry Radjaw Raps Over Other People's Records' in which he digs records like a DJ and then rhymes over them as an MC. This record embodies his honest approach to hip hop without being overdone. He dislikes this 'backpack' sad whiteboy image that is almost always expected of a white emcee. As an emcee, he wants to resurrect the vibes from his roots in the late 80's to the early 90's when hip hop was fun. He talks with a swagger that exudes good times, partying, and confidence. With a live show that includes dancing, improvisation, and crowd involvement, seeing Radjaw is not to be missed! He is true to himself as a person and as an emcee not portraying anything that he is not. With this, he hopes to inspire future emcees to focus on talent, humor and an old school appreciation for the music. He is giving the Seattle music scene something that they always embrace: a new sound.
