The Bricks The Biography

The Bricks is the unique unification of 4 emcees from distinct regions and backgrounds with one common goal…Make music and make it good.
The Bricks came together in the small town of Jacksonville, NC due to the fact that they were stationed at MCAS New River. All of its members are United States Marines.
Sypher (Jorge Sanchez) and Sam Roy (Samuel Roy) first met during their time served in Pensacola, FL. Rumors came and went about their ability to freestyle and through these rumors they hooked up and started rhyming. During that same time, Beast (Dedrick Clark) was busy pursuing his own musical aspirations, by helping to develop One In the Chamber Productions in Jacksonville, NC. Some time after, Beast went overseas where he would spend his next 2 years. Synne (Ryan Varner) meanwhile, was building his own reputation as a battle emcee and made quite a name for his self.
It wasn’t until the year of 2004 that the 4 emcees finally hooked up and began talks of doing work together. Beast had returned from his overseas tour, as did Sam Roy. Sypher and Beast soon became well acquainted after being part of the same football team down at MCAS New River. Soon all the members would get together for late night freestyle sessions and come together to discuss tips on production, hip-hop, and life in general.
As time went on, talks became more frequent about dropping tracks, but it wasn’t until the day that Sypher and Beast stumbled across one of Beast’s old beats that they decided it was time. It was then that they did their first recording and laid down the smash hit “Shake It”. It wasn’t until that first recording that the members decided to make the union official and dawn the name “The Bricks”. The Bricks is a nickname used as a reference to the barracks, which is the facility that housed the emcees.
In a matter of a short 2 months, they completed most work on their debut LP entitled “Introducing…” and began the daunting task of starting up their own record label. After being neglected by various labels, they took it upon themselves to ensure their dreams of entertaining would not be hindered, living by the motto, “We will not be denied!” So it was with the help Sypher’s step-father Gary Davis from GMJ management group and Antonio Darby, an ambitious entrepreneur and friend of The Bricks, that Double 1 Records became a reality.
So as the 2005-year begins, The Bricks hopes only to accomplish one thing…Greatness! With Sypher and Synne deploying to the Persian Gulf, and Beast and Sam Roy holding their own ground in Jacksonville, NC, the stage will be set by late 2005 for The Bricks to officially take the world by storm.
