A prolific emcee from New York, Mr. Complex is part of the original class of mid-1990s New York City underground artists. He debuted in 1995 with "Against The Grain," and kept his name in the game with a slew of stellar singles and compilation appearances. His friendly flow and advanced, conceptual lyrics have made him a favorite among hip-hop connesseurs worldwide, who've gobbled up his many indie releases. Complex is also down with the Polyrhyrthm Addicts, rocking the mic alongside Apani B Fly Emcee, Shabaam Saadeeq, and DJ Spinna. In 2000, he unleashed The Complex Catalog, a collection of his early work. 2001 saw the release of Hold This Down, an excellent record further displaying his ever-impressive verbal skills.
