What is hip hop ?. It is almost a trick question, Dizzy Rascal, Wiley, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, 50 Cent and Eminem have all blurred the boundaries between pop and hip hop in recent times.
He was recently on front page of Microsoft Windows Media Guide (USA) free downloads with his song Break The Fall and also appeared on DJ Green Lantern's (Eminem's former DJ) Mixtape "Dirty Invasion" with his song Black & Blue. This guy knows no boundaries, musically you will have a job to try and shackle him or pigeon hole him and live wise he will blow your mind as he picks up a cornet, blows half way through one track, and the guitar on another. Like Kanye West, Stock is so much more than simply just “another” hip hop act he is a pure entertainer has his live shows up and down the UK have shown.
Now based in the UK but originally from America (Detroit, Michigan) Stock has spent some three years working on this his debut album. The first single is the breathtaking "Find My Way” everybody that has heard it from A&R people to Radio Pluggers has used one word to describe it “hit”. Stock’s conscious lyrical rap is something that the world has being crying out for. When he moved to the UK Stock won a music talent competition with established ILR station 97.4 Rock FM. Stock was amazingly picked out of over 2000 demos, so it endorses what a huge talent he is. His prize for being picked was performing with Daniel Beddingfield, Will Young, and others at Feel The Noise Live at Ewood Park, Blackburn. A lot of interest from the media and a lot of airplay followed on the likes of Radio 1 and many regional ILR stations. Things continued to progress whilst Stock put his debut album together, this included a placement of his song "Bounce The Bandit Club Remix ft. Skrapp" was featured in the soundtrack of the $114 million White Chicks Movie (Right after the dance off in Club Scene).
So to today Stock is quite simply the next level in Hip-Hop and as he prepares to release his debut single in Fall 2010 and here is your chance to hear and support it in advance. On the album Stock has worked with multi platinum producers Dwight Reynolds (Akon, Whitney Houston and back in the day Another Level) and Ian Little (Produced Biggest # 1 Hits for Duran Duran) and has also enlisted some hot UK producers in Konkrete Productions and Clique Productions Soundrules. Stock also has produced tracks on the album himself. The icing on the cake for this stunning debut album comes via its mastering at the 5am Production Studios in the UK, 5am have been responsible for so many urban hits in recent years for the likes of Lemar, Usher, Kelly Rowland and many more. He has recently performed at YoYo's in London, Vibe Bar, and The Dublin Castle.
So sit back crank up the volume and come on this amazing musical journey with a hip hop act that will simply re-write the boundaries of hip hop.
