Blaze Ya Dead Homie
From his early days as an aspiring rapper from Mt. Clemens, Michigan, Blaze has assumed many aliases as he virtually clawed his way into the Underground Hip-Hop Scene, with merely a dream and an undying love for Rap to accompany his supreme skills.
After a brief encounter with Jamie Madrox & Monoxide of Twiztid in the early 1990s, an immediate friendship was born, which would later lead to Blaze working for the legendary Psychopathic Records (former label of Twiztid, as well as Insane Clown Posse) toward the end of the decade. Blaze quickly worked his way up through the company, all the while honing his craft and developing a concept for his soon-to-be persona.
One late evening, while attending a recording session in 1999 for the Island/Def Jam reissue of Twiztid’s acclaimed album Mostasteless, Blaze was asked to kick a verse for the track “Hound Dogs.” It was on that historic night that the notorious undead gangster known as Blaze Ya Dead Homie was born.
