Still working on that hot first release.



Oakland emcee, vocalist, and songwriter, single-handedly responsible for transforming Oakland's "Art Walk" into the city-wide, "First-Friday", that it is known as today. Being one-half of Rap Duo, Dope City Saints, originally receiving his first publication writing for Oakland Newspapers while traveling over-seas, WORDUP now approaches the completion of his debut album, with goals of emerging as the most prominent composer in Hip Hop. Spending the majority of a decade being mentored by DJ Toure', of the legendary Hieroglyphics Crew, WORDUP showcases a wide spectrum of vocals & lyricism, blending both musicianship & the raw perspective of Natives from Oakland, stating "Modern artist find themselves challenged to make one hit record. Rarely do they use their life's experiences, to construct a Classic body of work. Consistency is key. Sure, it's a bit old school, but that's the difference between their work, and mine."
