East Coast rapper Word One has been personally recruited by multi-platinum recording artist DMX. Through an impressive display of lyrical creativity, Word impressed DMX, while on tour, just enough for him to be offered a spot on the roster.
Born in LA, but raised in New York, Word One has been rapping since the early1990s. His latest single produced by Jasdeep entitled “Act Up” can be found on his last project 2 Feet and a Heartbeat. Word One has an ongoing mixtape brand called Best of Freestyles. In celebration of signing with DMX, Word One is expecting to release the 3rd installment of Best of Freestyles: Ruff Ryder Edition February 2015.
Word One has opened for and worked with some of the best talent in the game such as Destiny’s Child, Lil Jon,Trina, Trick Daddy, Fat Joe, Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz, Goodie Mob, Bone Thugs N Harmony, KRS 1 and more.
Word One is a very versatile artist in the game today; capable of creating catchy hooks over flowing southern beats or chopper style like Twista. When asked why he does not stick to one set style, Word One simply stated “I don’t like any two records of mine to sound alike.”
His story is one of trial and triumph from his lowest point of being locked up and hitting rock bottom to following his destiny while collaborating with greats like E-40, B-Legit and DMX. He is self-proclaimed leader of the Underdog Movement- making reality based music for those most like him, the Underdogs.
