Biography

The Beat Assailant - Hard Twelve History

The number twelve - whether its a money making lucky roll of the dice, the number of songs on his first album or simply the month he was born - is a number which has carried significance throughout the life path of Hip Hop artist BA “The Beat Assailant”.

This is the story of an artist whose interesting life path has taken him from Miami to Atlanta to Paris. From a performing arts school to the gritty stages of the Atlanta underground Hip Hop scene to the eclectic Paris music community. From all of these experiences, influences and journeys, BA has created an eclectic 12 track album entitled Hard Twelve.

Like every true artist B.A. has lived his life with a need and vision to create enduring works. The 26 year old rapper was born in Miami in 1977 and moved quickly thereafter to Atlanta where he grew up and still resides today. At an early age BA was driven by the need to express himself through the creation of music and began his unique musical experience as a teenager at North Atlanta’s High School for the performing arts. His first step into hip hop’s Notoriety came when he was discovered at Rowdy Records’ Open Mic Battles held in Atlanta. This led to his first recordings at Dallas Austin’s famed DARP studios while working with producers like Sol Messiah of Zulu Nation and Tim & Ted of La Face records.

    hier soir très bon concert pour cloturer le semaine de programmation 22 d'auron au printemps de bourges.. Il a fallu 4 morceaux pour qu'ils donnent toute leur mesure. Au débutl, les voix avaient du mal à se faire entendre et l'ensemble ne rendait pas un son cohérent.Ensuite le reste du concert a été une tuerie. Les musiciens se font plaisir sur scène et l'énergie du groupe est communicative.
