Biography

UK based Configa first got into hip hop in 1988 via the sounds of The Native Tongues. As a young teenager, he saw his future as lying in radio, and even had his own hip hop show on a local unlicensed station, but ultimately the draw of the mic proved too great and he started writing his own rhymes at the age of 16 under the pseudonym ‘M.C. Unique’. Early ventures included making mix tapes that were sold and distributed on the local streets, freestyle battles and exploiting musical avenues through the relatively new medium of the Internet. As a noted battle rapper, M.C. Unique decided to build upon his buzz and release his debut album entitled ‘Baptizm Of Fire’ in 2000. Aside from mic duties, the album was also self-produced/mixed/manufactured and financed by Unique (Configa) himself. The album notably featured a collaboration with B. Down, owner of LA based ‘Rap Junkie Records’, who signed Unique (Configa) to his fledgling Independent label in 2001.

Configa (as ‘M.C. Unique’) featured on two mix tapes on the LA label, Independent Game 1 (2001) and Independent Game 2 (2002) and released his second album, ‘The King Of Linguistics’, in 2002 also through ‘Rap Junkie Records’, this album again being mainly self produced by Unique/Configa himself. The album garnered favourable reviews and received solid exposure, including a mention on MTV.com alongside the ‘8 Mile’ Soundtrack and Christina Aguilera upon its release date and was subject to European and US wide distribution.
