Identity Crisis: Meta4ically Speakin' is one of the most entertaining CD's of 2006! Metaphor delivers well-written songs with incredible punch lines that'll make even most intellectual listeners blush. With songs such as 'Talk2Me' and 'Until You're Ready' that deal with the sensitive subject of relationships to songs like 'Pigmy' and 'Tha Get Down' that'll take to you straight to the club, Metaphor can't lose! For those hip hop heads that love those 'I can't believe he just said that!' verses, Metaphor gives you 'No Choice' and 'Lyrics4Dayz'. The most incredible and unbelievable talent that Metaphor has is his ability to memorize his thoughts. That's right, he has NEVER written anything down! Special guest appearances include Meta4ever Musik's very own R&B sensation 'Quianna' and one of Hip Hop's most talented and versatile emcee's 'Londinoson'. Coming from the ATL, Metaphor brings a mature sound to hip hop that is not only entertaining but refreshing and will only compliment other successful Atlanta representatives such as Outkast, Lil Jon, Ludacris, T.I. and Goodie Mob. Metaphor hails from Atlanta, GA where he is also the President/CEO of Meta4ever Musik, Inc. The journey actually began in South Bend, IN where Metaphor grew up and was introduced to Hip Hop in elementary school. In the Mid to Late 80's, Metaphor listened and learned from artist like Run DMC, LL Cool J and DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. Metaphor also created a hip hop group called Miskunsepshun that consisted of Trey, Ant, Tasha, Quesa, Robin and James. They instantly became the talk of the town winning every talent show the city had to offer. Even with the success of the group, Metaphor stood out. Metaphor started to learn the business side of the music industry by joining C.A.M.S. (The Chicago Association For Musicians and Songwriters) and later joining ASCAP as a writer and a publisher. Metaphor began writing commercial and radio jingles as well as R&B songs for local and national artist. Milwaukee was a great city, but Metaphor realized that in order to get noticed he would have to once again relocate. In December of 1996, Metaphor on a Greyhound bus and headed for Atlanta, GA to stay with family and pursue his music career. Metaphor linked up with a producer named Wizard of LaFace Records and began writing for local artist as well as his own project. As the days went by, Metaphor took it upon himself to learn more about the business since he felt as though he had the music aspect of it on lock. In the summer of 2003, Metaphor established Meta4ever Musik, Inc. And began recording his first CD with Producer Syd Style of Funked Up Musik Productions. The pair worked non-stop over the next couple of months until Syd had to relocate back up north. This did not stop Metaphor from completing his project; he just hooked up with some of Atlanta's top local producers including Kevin and Rick of G.A.J.A. Productions and KomplexX Productions in order to finish the CD. Metaphor went on to form a Record Label/Production partnership with the producers as well as signing the Beat Machinery, a young production team with tons of potential to a production deal with Meta4ever Musik, Inc. Even though Metaphor is a Record Company President/CEO, Hip Hop Artist/Songwriter/Producer and let's not forget that he's still a Mortgage Banker with a well-known financial institution in Atlanta, GA, nothing will ever be as strong as his relationship with God. So without further ado, Ladies and Gentlemen we present to you 'METAPHOR' with his debut CD entitled 'Identity Crisis: Meta4ically Speakin'. .
