Biography

“Progressive Hip-Hop For Old School Hip-Hop Fans.”

Mr. Invisible’s story starts in an unlikely setting, a rural town called Mt. Holly in the backwoods of North Carolina. At first glance, it’s the typical “redneck” town with more trees than people and more pick-up trucks than high school graduates. The outsider would never think that this little spec of dust could be the birthplace of something so original, progressive, explosive and even more surprisingly Hip-Hop. Don’t forget, it only takes a single atom to make a really big bang. Even Justin “Aswell” Blackwood and Blake “Ill-use” Matthews didn’t realize their potential when they made their first musical connection in the freestyle cyphers in front their hometown high school.

Aswell, then known for his longwinded beat box, recognized something different about this little kid with heavy rhymes and crazy energy named Ill-use. In 1998, Aswell asked him to join Mr. Invisible’s first incarnation as the group Dominant-7, now known as one of the forefathers of the early Charlotte Hip-Hop scene. The many years Ill-use and Justin Aswell spent with Dominant-7 proved to be the perfect foundation. It give them chances to perform hundreds of times and with artist such as DJ Vadim (Ninja Tune), Atmosphere (Rhymesayers), Little Brother (ABB Records) and Themsleves (Anticon). As Dominant-7’s time in the “Queen City” Hip-Hop scene came to a close, Mr. Invisible emerged.
