Biography

There are two artists which use this name
1. Undead (now Secret Levels), a hip hop group from Missouri, United States
2. Undead, a punk band from England

1. ATTENTION: UNDEAD (the Hip Hop group not to be confused with “The Undead”) now goes by the name SECRET LEVELS

Growing up in Kansas City, Missouri, the son of a soldier and the oldest of three brothers, Undead front man, Cinch, would find his comfort in every form of Hip-Hop there was. Cinch found his love for the culture at an early age, starting out with B-Boying (break dancing), then moving on to D.J.\’ing, and eventually growing into form and adopting the skill of rocking the mic.

As a kid, Cinch would be engulfed in vinyl from artists like KRS ONE, The Pharcyde and A Tribe Called Quest to name a few. It was easy to see that the young man could easily be entertained with a spray can and a bag full of records.

The meaning behind the name Undead came from Cinch’s love for horror movies, and a fight against corporatization of the Hip-Hop culture. As a young man Cinch would find himself cruising the streets with a Krylon can, occasionally spraying the name \”Undead\” on neighborhood walls. For Cinch, already a fan of classic horror flicks, the name would symbolize the fact that he would rarely sleep. As Cinch grew up, the Hip-Hop industry would become saturated with overrated material that Cinch felt was unworthy of media attention. The name \”Undead\” would now take on the meaning of Hip-Hop not being dead but being alive and well in the “Underground”.
