Biography

They all came to Germany as American soldiers. At first C-Block was only Red Dogg (George Anthony Joseph) and Mr.P or P.O.P. (James White). It was with Mr.P that Red Dogg had the success with the album “General Population” and all the hit songs from that. It all went very well for those to. They were the “main members” of CBK that were most visible, but the singer Theresa “Misty” Baltimore and the rapper/singer Goldie were also members of the group and featured on many songs.

C-Block’s first single was “Skake dat azz” together with the rapper A.K.-S.W.I.F.T. It was released in early 1996, and got a lot of airplay in the clubs and hiphop charts.
The real breakthrough came with their single “So Strung Out”. This song hit the top 5 on the very popular chart, Viva Top100, and reached top 10 in many European countries.
The followed up the success with another bomb-song “Time Is Tickin´ Away”, and it got as big, if not any bigger then the previous single. If you ask anybody about C-Block, the person probably would mention “So Strung Out” and “Time Is Tickin’ Away” directly.
After that it was time for the debut album release. “General Population” hit the stores, and this album is one of the, if not the greatest album of the history of the European HipHop/Rap scene. The album contains, except for the 3 singles “So Strung Out”, “Time Is Tickin´ Away” and their fourth single, “Summertime”, super-songs like “Everything´s Good”, “Being Raised” and “Round N Round”. This is really something for the fans of European Rap & HipHop.
