Meticulous rhyme-patterns, a no-nonsense approach, & an aggressive delivery breaks through a "Quiet Storm" nature.
Collaborating with student groups during university became the catalyst for Scott Ramirez to drive an artistic career right to distinction within the local scene. Years later with eyes now focused on the rest of the world, Ramirez is ready to punch through glass ceilings and stereos on a global stage.
Performing under the likes of Hip Hop veterans, J-Live, Mike Swift, J-Hon, Maybach Music's Stalley and the legendary Wu-Tang Clan's GZA and Masta Killa; as well as sharing the stage with Toronto luminaries Alex Dimez, Dan-e-o, ELMNT, FenaxiZ, among others; prominently involved in underground collectives H3 (Hip Hop Headz), Phase II and Organized Sound; more than speaks for Ramirez' clout.
Summer 2011 marked the release of his debut EP "Mad Work, Low Pay, Big Dreams" with an LP targeted to be released in late 2012. Ensuing with a tour, Ramirez speaks on the busy new lifestyle, "You gotta take things one step at a time." The single "Inspired Flight" from the EP is currently getting radio play from the University of Toronto's Fusion Radio and CHRY 105.5FM in Toronto.
Recently the performance schedule evolved from a monthly to weekly setup (even daily; on some occasions, performing twice in the same day). Gigs would range from small events, such as open mics and community centre events, to the Canadian Music Festival to headlining the main stage at the Sound Academy.
Fresh off the Band on the Run Grand Prize selection, Ramirez looks forward to working with Coalition Music during the mentorship program and to forge a fruitful relationship with them for the long run.
