Rap duo from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA consisting Hayczar and E-nok, hence their name. Growing up in that city, they realized that life was indeed a process. They went to high school together and shared a strong love for music that they each got from their parents. After getting tremendous positive feedback from their friends and acquaintances in the 'Natti, the duo realized that they had the talent and determination to leave the streets behind. Hayczar chose to use his street name (a play off of czar) as his rap moniker, while E-Nok got his name from a Biblical figure lauded by God.
Once they hatched their rap dreams, E-Nok took the initiative and started going to the studio and recorded some early material. He then turned his friend Hayczar on to the recording process. Both were soon hooked on making music and dedicated their energy into writing raps with meaning and purpose. Their work soon paid off as they joined forces with Los Vegas and formed Locdown Records, building a buzz in Cincinnati and later the rest of the Midwest.
"We kept going and just making music," Hayczar explains. "We kept traveling, stayed on the road and would put it down. We used to get a rental and go to Chicago and perform, just getting closer as a group with the music."
Several major league record companies began courting Czar-Nok. They signed with industry powerhouse Capitol Records. Czar-Nok's funky song "Beauty Queen" was then featured on the acclaimed Coach Carter soundtrack, which features material from Twista, Faith Evans, Fabolous and others.
Now, with the buzz surrounding That One Way building, Czar-Nok is ready to make its mark on hip-hop history. "We're about to change the game," E-Nok says. "We're going to make it to where more complete artists can get out there because it seems like there's just one type of dude doing it right now."
