Biography

Every so often an exceptional artist lurks beneath the shrouded depths of the underground world waiting for the perfect time to pounce into the spotlight with ferocity. At a time when society is tired of the monotonous sounds of today’s music and cries out for someone to break the barriers of the norm and one man stands to start a revolution. The cries have been heard, that is time is now and that man is Tha Advocate.

As a dedicated artist, Tha Advocate has been recording music since 1997. He was born in Jersey in 1983 and later relocated to Newburgh, New York where he spent most of his teenage years and then relocated back to New Jersey. His life has been less than perfect and his passion for rapping has created a platform to confront his demons. Clever rhyme scheme, meter and simile’s reflect this “passionate” poet’s motive to resurrect his listener’s deepest and most intimate feelings about life, death and the everyday struggle. His sounds generate a tornado of thunderous ground shaking beats and silky but fiery lyrics interweaved with machine-gun quickness to fuse order and mayhem into one atomic ball of electricity.
In addition, this multi-talented artist is arduously involved in every aspect of the production of his original beats.

As a producer, Tha Advocate has the ability to not only put his heart and soul into his lyrics, but into the creation of his music as well. The extensive use of various musical instruments helps to develop the particularly unique sound on his tracks. He is also responsible for working extensively on the production of "Against The Wall"(the first debut retail album from Advo) and certain key songs of off Point Of No Return. Furthermore, he has been featured on many various mix CD’s,compilation albums and highly hit hiphop websites and magazines as well as respectable hip hop publications.Advo has made several memorable appearances on radio and internet outlets throughout the United States and many music related TV shows and DVD'S. In the summer of 2005 Tha Advocate released "POINT A" his debut solo mixtape.After moving thousands of mixtapes and receiving incredible reviews another project was in the works.In April 2006 Tha Advocate's debut album "AGAINST THE WALL" was released and also recieved incredible reviews,feedback and responses.

"Against The Wall" as well "Point A" caught alot of mainstream attention from established HipHop and music icons.This list goes on and barely defines the hardwork that Tha Advocate demonstrates to achieve his goal.On July 31st 2007 Advo released his best work to date..."POINT OF NO RETURN" which was hosted by Remy Ma and DJ Bedtyme357.It featured many gems such as the pain driven "Maybe U Should Kill Me" and "LifeSong" and the indepth "The Lense".PONR also featured street classics like "Air It Out" and "Beware Freestyle" aswell as the universal smash hit "Talk 2 U".

It was presented by Mic Check Mixtapes. Advo became partner of Mic Check Mixtapes in late 2006 and has released many critically aclaimed mixtapes with artists such as Sly Boogy,Domination and Bang Em Smurf,Remy Ma,DJ Bedtyme,Stat Quo,Killah Priest and the list goes on.

The long awaited emergence of this extremely eclectic rapper slash producer is finally here. The barriers of the norm have been broken and the revolution has begun. The crown for the best un-signed artist will soon be held by Tha Advocate, the number one contender in the game.
