Son of Fort Lauderdale record store owner Billy Hines, Adrian Hines (aka MC Adrian Does Everything) earned his reputation as a Miami Bass artist in late 1985 by hiring producer Amos Larkins from Sunnyview/Hot Productions to record the classic Electro Bass track “Bass Rock Express”. Two years later, the success was followed by an album tellingly entitled “Just Somethin’ to Do”. He found his most memorable success outside of South Florida with his 1989 classic album “How Much Can You Take”. In 1991, he followed with a mixed bag entitled “All Out Bash”, mostly deviating from his Miami/Electro Bass formula for more straight ahead Hip-Hop, occasionally rehashing older ideas of his for the Electro Bass tracks contained. By then, Billy Hines’ 4-Sight Records fell into a slump, causing ADE’s 1993 album “In the Arms of Bass” to go mostly unnoticed, despite a small handful of innovative tracks (and superfluous tributes to Beavis & Butthead along the way). ADE mostly fell from the spotlight after this, appearing on a few cameos since, and even recording a Tupac tribute.
