Product Notes

A rapper that teaches? A teacher that raps? The perhaps unexpected answer to both of these questions is, yes. With a passion for Hip Hop, and a commitment to educating our youth, Origin brings a personal and unique perspective to the world of Hip Hop music. Many artists claim to be 'for the kids', but few are so committed that they cease to make music that promotes and glorifies violence and destruction. Fewer still are so committed to their beliefs that they personally work with the youth and facilitate meaningful change. Origin is a true Hip Hop artist with that level of commitment to our communities. Origin creates high quality, thought provoking Hip Hop music. His lyrics stress open-mindedness, self-awareness, independence and flow naturally over diverse Hip Hop production sounding reminiscent of golden era Hip Hop. With content ranging from battle to concept, an emotional range of light-hearted to disconcerting, and a tempo range from upbeat to slower dramatic tracks, Origin consistently creates honest, personal, and relevant music. Origin has performed for several years in and around Albany, New York at various venues ranging from privately owned bars to the Pepsi Arena. He has repeatedly performed for Albany's First Night Celebration and the annual Labor Movement Meets the Hip Hop Movement Festival, in Albany. His live shows feature audience participation as he is able to quickly build rapport with crowds. Origin has repeatedly been featured on the Supafriends radio show (91.5, WRPI), and DJ Bake's radio show (90.9, WCDB). A news story featuring Origin's dual role as educator and emcee was aired on news channel 10 (WTEN) in 2003. Origin's CD releases include the Rock The Mic E.P. (2003), It's The Conquest Benefit CD (2003), and This Is Me (debut full-length 2005), along with appearances on several other projects. Origin is a truly dedicated emcee, and a thoroughly committed educator. He has become known as a positive voice in the 518 Hip Hop scene, and as a dynamic educator in the city of Albany. Origin wants to start meaningful discussions with his music. To further accomplish this he has incorporated a forum on his website. So while some may make claims about who they are and what they represent, Origin truly is an emcee/educator working for positive changes in our communities.
