Mobb Deep is an American Hip hop duo from Queensbridge, Queens, New York, U.S., that consisted of Havoc and Prodigy. The duo is "one of the most critically acclaimed hardcore East Coast Hip-Hop groups". The group is best known for its dark, hardcore delivery as exemplified by the single "Shook Ones Pt. II". Mobb Deep have become one of the most successful rap duos in Hip Hop having sold over three million records. The majority of their albums have been critically acclaimed, in particular The Infamous, which is considered to be classic among avid Hip-Hop listeners and general fans. They are partially credited for the resurgence of East Coast rap in the early to mid-'90s. Havoc and Prodigy were also judges for the 7th Annual Independent Music Awards to support independent artists' careers and breakthroughs. The group was briefly disbanded as of 2012 after a beef broke out between the members, but that discrepancy has since been dealt with and the group has reunited for the 2013 Paid Dues festival in California.
Mic Stewart is a nationally respected freestyle artist, and
was crowned the 2012 Red Bull Emsee National Freestyle Champion.
Mic recently finished recording a major label single via
Red Bull Studios with platinum recording engineer Eric Stenman
and hip hop production duo THC. An explosive live performer, he
has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music,
including Big K.R.I.T, Black Thought, ?uestlove and Raekwon.
This spring he is set to independently release his debut album,
PEACEWORLD, which features his most powerful songwriting
and lyricism to date.
As long as he can remember, music has always been a major part of his life. He noticed how much music meant to so many people and how adding it to any environment could change the its emotions with just the drop of a needle on a record! While listening to any song, he began to think of what would be the perfect follow-up track to keep a party moving. His scientific way of interpreting music and atmosphere helped him as he honed his skills in blending, beat juggling, and mixing songs. Add in his UNBELIEVABLE scratching ability and you quickly see how he became DJAKTIVE!
AKTIVE began spinning at neighborhood basement parties and parks in his hometown of Philadelphia,PA before he even made it to high school! He became known for his showmanship and lightning quick hand speed, hence the moniker he carries today. After winning DJ battles against some of the top competitors in the nation, radio stations and big-time promoters began tapping him for his service. This led to him becoming a house hold name in the area.
After rocking every gig thrown his way, DJAKTIVE hooked up with Def Soul recording artist,Musiq. He brought his unique style and learned to blend with band members during live performances. He has since toured the world over with various artists and has played nightclubs, parties, and events for some of the most diverse crowds. He is currently the official DJ for Grammy award-winning artist/producer,Kanye’ West.
The DJ has always been an important element in hip hop culture. With that in mind, DJ AKTIVE is ready to show the world his unique style of “turntabilism”. The mission is to re introduce the world to the importance of skill behind the turntables. The“Aktive Experience”will undoubtedly leave an im pression on allthatexperience his set. When ANYONE sees his name on ANY bill,they will know they’ re getting the opportunity to be a partof something special!
