~ Person

Annotation

Labtekwon is a cultural enigma and a creative phenomena in the universe of Hip Hop, performing at the Lyricist Lounge in New York and Project Blowed in Los Angeles; both recognized as the ground zero of true school Hip Hop artists on both coasts. Labtekwon is a champion of Zulu Nation Freestyle Competition, various poetry slams and Baltimore Citypaper named him Best Mc of Baltimore 3 times, Beat of the Year and Song of the Year. Labtekwon has shared the stage with Afrika Bambaata, Rakim, Kool Keith, MF DOOM, Psycho Les, A Tribe Called Quest, Brand Nubian, KRS-One, Black Thought, Aceyalone, Digital Underground and countless other Hip Hop artists that represent the pinnacle of lyricism and excellence. He has left his mark on 28 releases including 15 full lengths on his own Ankh Ba Records. Noting Labtekwon's varied discography Urb Magazine called him 'the most eclectic mother fucker to ever emerge from Baltimore since John Waters'. From his 12' 'I Am Here' to his pioneering efforts with the 410 Pharaohs on the first Baltimore Club Music/ Hip Hop hybrid album: 410 Funk, Labtekwon has put a brand on the underground scene for posterity and die hard collectors alike. Labtekwon is an enigma of galactic proportion. Considered the "Thelonius Monk of Hip Hop" by Chuck D of Public Enemy. Labtekwon=Future Shock. (
