Building the Machine Man
Hailed as DOOMs New Right Hand Man by Hip Hop Connections magazine. Not many people remember that MOBONIX started out as a community organizer and public speaker. And then started rhyming and promoting and doing shows. As a early promoter in Atlanta he was the first one to do parties and concerts with DJ Drama, Tony Touch and Common respectively.
MOBONIX original rhyme crew, the Universal Vibe Squad, included his group, the Fat Rhyme Sector, the Micranots and Budah Tye. They gained notoriety locally and nationally.
Around 2004 MOBONIX did his first show with DOOM, actually MOBONIX emceed while DOOM deejayed, at a URB magazine party at the Sky Bar in South Beach.
What followed was MOBONIX being featured on the Live from Planet X tour, Rock the Bells and spot dates in the U.S. and Europe. And then on the song Supervillainz alongside DOOM, Kurious, Slug and Posdnous from De la Soul.
All leading ultimately to MOBONIX joining DOOMs METAL FACE AKADEMY.
MOBONIX is an enigmatic figure to say the least. He says in his current configuration he is programmed with a familiar mantra, To Take Over The World. While his plan may be grandiose from what Ive heard of his new project he is poised to do just that.
For 2014 MOBONIX has 3 planned releases of new material. Machine Man Album and also the first installment of his BIONIC series featuring 'BIONIC jazz" and the projects feature some of the best beatsmiths in hip-hop today, including production from DOOM, Madlib, Vitamin D, DJ Kool Ak (Micranots), Dj Wesu (METAL FACE AKADEMY), CX KidTronik (Stones Throw), Block Head, Lex Boogie and Bean One.
