Biography

Forge & Amen are a multi-talented duo bringing back the same producer-to-emcee spirit as groups like Gang Starr and Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth. Amen’s animated personality and swagger mixed with Forge’s calm, reserved demeanor makes for an unexpected but exceptional match.

Forge got into hip hop in the early-to-mid 90’s and is influenced heavily by producers from that era like DJ Premier, RZA, and Large Professor. Over time, Forge got into the deejaying aspect of things, which eventually evolved into producing. He landed a spot at the top college radio station in NC, WKNC 88.1 FM. He also completed tracks with Spectac, Supastition, and members of the Justus League.

Amen, the proclaimed “Menace To Sobriety”, got captivated to music through his father who had an extensive collection of vinyl. Over the years, Amen finally wanted to present his own form of music and started doing such in the late 90’s. Eventually, linking up with the Magnum Opus crew, Amen started getting his name out all over South Carolina through his superb stage presence and numerous mixtapes that have circulated throughout the southeast. After a few years, Amen finally met a producer from North Carolina that happened to match his style to a tee.

After recording their 1st song (which turned into their 1st single) in mid-2003, Forge & Amen decided that they complimented each other so perfectly that they would team up for an album, the soon-to-be classic ‘12 Step Program’.
