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 and Monoxide of Twiztid in the early 1990’s, an immediate friendship was born, which would later lead Blaze to working with the legendary Psychopathic Records, the former label of Twiztid as well as the 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 persona. One late evening while attending a recording session in 1999 for the Island Def Jam reissue of Twiztid’s acclaimed album, Mostastless, Blaze was asked to kick a verse for the track, Hound Dogs. It was on that historic night that the notorious un-dead gangster, known as Blaze Ya Dead Homie, was born.
Friday, January 15 Blaze Ya Dead Homie’s newest album, The Casket Factory, an album that had been years in the making, hit the streets via Majik Ninja Entertainment. it is no doubt that an album for the Juggalo world, and is totally wicked.
