Incredible Edible's Birthday Bash
Sadat X (born Derek Murphy) is an American rapper, most famed as a member of Alternative hip hop group Brand Nubian. Originally known as Derek X, Sadat takes his name from former Egyptian president Anwar Sadat. The X is taken from the Nation of Islam practice of members changing their surnames simply to X. He is well known for his unique, high-pitched voice, as well as his Pro-Black, and at times ...controversial, lyrical content.
Sadat X debuted with Brand Nubian in 1989, with the release of their debut single "Brand Nubian" b/w "Feels So Good". The group's debut album, One For All, was released in late 1990, featuring the singles "All For One", "Wake Up" and "Slow Down". The album was widely acclaimed, inspired by the teachings of the Nation of Islam, similar to many groups of the era, including X-Clan, Public Enemy and Poor Righteous Teachers. One For All is now considered a classic hip hop album, and was awarded a 5 Mic rating from popular magazine The Source. Brand Nubian returned in 1993 with the album In God We Trust, which featured the hit single "Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down". Sadat received a bit of controversy following the song's release, due to alleged homophobic content. Following the mixed reviews from the group's third album, 1994's Everything is Everything, Brand Nubian split up to pursue solo endeavors. In 1996, Sadat released his first solo effort, Wild Cowboys. The album featured production from O.Gee Pete Rock, Da Beatminerz, Diamond D, Showbiz and Buckwild, as well as a pair of hit singles, "Hang 'Em High" and "The Lump Lump", the former charting on the Billboard Hot 100. Sadat reunited with original Brand Nubian members Grand Puba, Lord Jamar and DJ Alamo for a reunion album, Foundation, released in late 1998. The album was well-received, and featured the crossover hit "Don't Let it Go to Your Head". After the album, Brand Nubian broke up once again for solo endeavors. In 1999, Sadat made possibly his most famous guest appearance with Common, dropping a verse on the single "1-9-9-9", from the Rawkus Records compilation Soundbombing 2. Sadat released an EP in 2000, titled The State of New York vs. Derek Murphy, which featured the single "Ka-Ching". Brand Nubian reunited once again in 2004, for the release of the album Fire in the Hole. The album was seen as a disappointment, and the group split again for solo albums. Sadat released his second full length album, Experience & Education, in 2005, featuring production from Diamond D, DJ Spinna and Minnesota. On December 22, 2005, Sadat was arrested in Harlem and charged with criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest. On October 3, 2006, Female Fun Music released Sadat's third full-length album Black October.
Sadat is involved in teaching children. Has worked as an elementary school teacher in New Rochelle, New York. Qualified as a firefighter in New Rochelle, New York. Coaches children's basketball for the New York City Basketball League. He also played point guard for the Howard University basketball team.

Review by Jake Crates
"Gentle Jones be on some other shit! Hailing from Delaware, Gentle Jones drops his new project Murderkill Hundred. There is nothing else like it on the market as Mr. Jones takes your though a tripped out tour of the first state of Delaware. "Crop Circles" is my joint. Ill sample on that... Gentle Jones drops the track "God is Inside You" and shocks me... This organ-based track is absolutely crazy, the beat is intricate yet spaced out and his words are on some Pink Floyd meets Big Boi, meets Aesop Rock, meets Prince Paul ish. I am going to have to listen to this one several times over. I'm trying to figure out exactly what he's saying. Its talented artists like this that keep me going, for real."
The 49ers, comprising of Jas Mace and Marchitect and hailing out of Newark, Delaware, are not two wanna-be football stars from San Francisco. These two hip-hop entrepreneurs have been blowing up clubs and venues across the country since 1995 when they where the focal members of the hip-hop conglomerate The Outfit. The Outfit’s first release, The Soundtrack to Life, had national distribution and re...ceived positive reviews from radio D.J.s and critics across the country. Their first 12 release was titled Beauty of the Week and remained on the college rap radio charts for over 12 weeks. Due to a string of unfortunate events, The Outfit has since dismantled but The 49ers have continued recording throughout the years working on various solo and group projects. They have been featured at the 2006 Allhiphop.com’s Breeding Ground showcase and won Delaware’s best Hip-Hop artist of 2007 in Out-and-About Magazine. The 49ers have also starred in, and produced the soundtrack to, the award-winning documentary called Guilty or Innocent: Use of the N Word.
The 49ers’ debut album, Equilibrium, was released in 2007 and was well received by critics and fans alike. Philadelphia’s popular hip-hop website, 215HipHop.com , took notice to Equilibrium as one that was completely produced and written by The 49ers with no guest appearances and claims, “The 100% we do it all our self method produces nothing but high quality music, which these guys do extremely well.” Equilibrium is full of live instruments, with a blend of unique sampling, and clever lyrics well beyond your nursery rhyme rappers that saturate the radio airwaves today. HipHopLinguistics.com also appreciated the versatility of the album saying, “This album seems to hold a great balance of lyrics, rhymes, production, deejay cuts, mixes and samples. All wrapped together in one, as if the purpose of the album was to take a little bit of everything and successfully mix it into sixteen tracks of hip-hop.” Grouchy Greg, CEO and founder of the popular website ALLHIPHOP.com, referred to The 49ers as “a group that is definitely pioneering a new sound and bringing a much needed change to a genre of music that has been flooded with copy cats and imitations.”
In 2007, The 49ers released their first Japanese album titled State of the Art and was well received in Japan. State of the Art was more of a 49ers’ greatest hits and unreleased album as it contained unreleased songs recorded by The 49ers, as well as a collection of their greatest hits released as The 49ers and The Outfit. In 2009, they released their second album titled The Ultrasound. The Ultrasound was the first album that wasn’t produced entirely by The 49ers. The Ultrasound featured producers from around the world and was also well received as a breath of fresh air to the current state of hip-hop. In 2010, The 49ers were featured on Re:plus’ album called Everlasting Truth. The song “Imagine” was the #1 hip-hop single on iTunes Japan for two months. The 49ers followed up their hit single and charted again on iTunes Japan with their song “Running Out of Time,” which is featured on Incise’s album called Daily Methods. The song is also featured on the compilation album called In Ya Mellow Tone 5 and peaked the charts at #72 on iTunes top 100 hip-hop songs in Japan.
In 2011, The 49ers charted on iTunes top 100 hip-hop songs in Japan with “Music Plays On.” The song is featured on In Ya Mellow Tone 6 and is also included on Thomas Prime’s album called Waiting for Tomorrow. “Music Plays On” peaked at #97 on iTunes top 100 hip-hop songs in Japan. The 49ers released their 4th album titled Musaic on Libyus Music. The album’s title is a play on two words – music and mosaic. Marchitect explains, “We wanted all the songs to have their own flavor and color, but to come together and make a complete picture. Like a musical mosaic, hence Musaic.” The album was primarily produced by Soulchef and received great reviews across the internet.
Also in 2011, The 49ers released their second album of the year titled Soulstice on Green Piece. This was a collaboration album with a Japanese production unit called ZDW!? (Zaa Dee Woo!?). Soulstice has a unique flavor and is a blend of Japanese traditional sounds, hip-hop beats, and jazzy instruments throughout the album. The album’s theme is based on the summer solstice, hence the album’s title. Soulstice casts a wide net of concepts ranging from needing a vacation, reuniting with ex-girlfriends, and the inevitable end of all good things.
The 49ers hit the iTunes charts again in 2012 with “Doc Ellis,” a track that is featured on Blazo’s album called Reflections. “Doc Ellis” peaked at #66 on iTunes’ hip-hop charts in Japan. With the success of “Doc Ellis,” The 49ers have now charted on Japan’s iTunes top 100 hip-hop charts each of the past three years.

Charles Moore, A.K.A O'Flame, was raised on the northside of Wilmington, Delaware, in a single parent household with his mother and older sister. At the age of 7, Charles' mother and father parted ways, which left him down and out, being that he was close to his father. Living with a strict mother, and with his father being a no show on a regular basis, Charles began dealing with depression at an early age. His sister introduced him to Hip Hop when she bought him his first cassette tape, "Criminal Minded" by Boogie Down Productions. He quickly fell in love with the many feelings music can take you through, so he began to write. Learning how to write poetry was a way out for Charles, but being a "Rapper" was the furthest thing from his mind, until he attended his first concert featuring the group "Onyx". Seeing their energy and their ability to take control of the crowd, Charles knew the stage was where he belonged.Over the years, Charles became more distant from the world, which strained the relationship between him and his mother, and often times, they would get into heated arguments which would lead to Charles being kicked out of the house. Some nights he would have the luck of sleeping on a friends couch, but some not so lucky nights, he would sleep on the steps of a track at a local elementary school. While there, he would spend majority of the night writing in his notebooks.
At the age of 16, Charles started his own poetry club with the help of his english teacher Ms.Gordon. Ms Gordon also convinced him to attend Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida majoring in Recording Arts. In 2000, he dropped his first group album, "Krunk City", with NLT (Nation of a Lost Tribe) and his first solo album, "Da Inferno", dropped in 2001. After receiving his associates degree, at the age of 19, Charles moved back to Wilmington, where he started his record label Shadow Ent. Still clashing with his mother, he ended up moving to the westside of town with his father. There, he started producing for other local artists which helped brand his name . In 2003, he released the nationwide classic "Best of the Best vol.1", and in 2005 he digitally released "Best of the Best vol.2". O'Flame began working on his solo album, "Smoke in the City", in 2007. After 3 years, he finally released it on December 10, 2010. That year, he also managed to perform at 88 different shows with artists such as "King Gordy", "Bizzy Bone", "Hopsin", and "Esham" (just to name a few), conducted numerous radio interviews, and celebrated the release of his first video, "Do you remember". "Smoke in the City" became one of the biggest albums to be released in the state of Delaware, reaching international status in Sweden and the UK. "O'Flame" is seemingly becoming a household name.
In 2011, O'Flame is set to release his "Lights out ep." (produced by N Gage), along with "Best of the Best vol.3" and "Uncharted Territory", in the last quarter of the year. He recently released videos for his lead singles "High Heels", off of the "Lights out ep", and "So f'd up" off of "Best of the Best vol.3". And he has plans for plenty more to come in the near future. With the relationships with his parents now on good terms, the only pressure on him now is the weight of the world. Can he handle it? I guess we all have to stay tuned to find out!
