Myc Ripley - Part 2

Who is Myc Ripley? Really..

Alrighty then... Last time we left you, we were speaking on Myc Rip and the moves he's been making the last couple of months. (Actually years, but we'll get into that.)

Myc Ripley is that one guy. You see him in the back of large crowds doing his own thing, but you still can't help notice how magnetizing he is. There is definitely something about Myc Rip.

So... The until now, consists of a great deal of things. There is no more Inf8nitbeatslump and/or DLC Crew. THERE IS NO CALI'S FINEST. There are rumors, but it is what it is.

Now, there is just Myc Ripley and #lifeonchill.

You can see Sharkstyliens LIVE! Wednesday nights holding down The Cypher™ W/ Audio Dru, DJ Luicidal, both of 90.5FM KSJS and DJ Abe from 9p-2a Back Bar SoFA Downtown San Jose CA

Ok, back to the real. Since all the bullshit between who really wants to do this and who doesn't. I've been working non-stop on building a solid network. Yet in still, not to many real grinders are out there. It has been a blessing in the making though it's still being made. I roll with it. When I say "working" I have been doing exactly that... Working. I keep a 925 and maintaining two projects that are still taking off.

I also have kids, but who doesn't in this day and age. They are really my inspiration! My A-Team.

This is what keeps me pushin' this eye wide open dream I live.

My new project is called "Purify - Th'Album" and mixtape will be called "Amidst the Darkness." I'm doing some slapp collecting and conceptualizing for both these projects as we speak..

Next post will touch on each of my past projects individually.. Starting with "The Slappelle Show - Season 1"
then continue with Season 2. this bio is circa 2009.. the story is still continuing.. follow on twitter and such to keep the full updates!! Thanks for taking the time to find out who Myc Ripley is in 2014!!

Myc Ripley - Part 1

Born November 10, 1979 and extremely Scorpio, Myc Ripley is true to his being. A native of Los Angeles, Myc Ripley (born B.Stuart) found himself in San Jose around the summer of 1993. Being with family, essentially escaping the grime and nonsense of the city of lost angels.

"Although , I have the heart of a lost angel, it feels good to be in an area where folks can't see you." - Myc Ripley

Myc Ripley began writing lyrics in '93 being influenced by Method Man's Tical project. Ultimately, it was his mothers constant playing of old reggae dancehall dub cassettes.

"BIGG UP MOMS!!!! 'cause she still hasn't stopped blastin' the dancehall." So then, as you can tell the family background is that of Jamaica. All reggae artists has provided some type of inspiration and/or portrayed an influence for Myc and all the music that is created by Myc Ripley.

In 1999, Myc Ripley wrote and recorded under the name of "Cozmick Da Ayth Wonder" for Calico Park Entertainment (CPE) in a duo group named "Flewid" where teamed with good friend "Sonick Da Ill Trooper" made a maxi single of never released tracks. Upon CPE vacating Palo Alto, CA looking for label sponsorship Flewid was left high and dry, eventually evaporating. Sonick moved to the dirty south and Cozmick tried to venture into his own production scheme.

By 2001, Cozmick Da Ayth Wonder hath become Mr. Mychogg (mike-hog) Ripley and started recording for himself in his own little shack based in Eastside San Jose where he formed The DLC - Dysfunctional Locol Crew, wanting to be a west coast Wu-Tang, DLC consisted of 4-5 members and couldn't gather collectively. So, Rip started recording himself and recorded over 150 unreleased and floating tracks to date. In that process, DLC phased out and Inf8nitbeatslump (Infinite Beat Slump) was formed. Rip's tracks have featured artists within the camp consisting of Smash Atoms, Krooked Keyz, BL, and ebreeze 3g for the sweet vocals.

Couple of years passed, Rip started dabbling in the production realm. Where he started recording more in depth and creating a mix of different music.

By 2003, Krook recruited Ace (Rauce Boss) Raustine (now Raustine D. Rauce), forming Cali's Finest between the two of them. Krook and Rauce had been rhymin together for sometime. After formally meeting, Rip offered to record Cali's Finest as their sound engineer, since he had been working on his own projects. In turn was invited to be a part of Cali's Finest making the duo a trio in the blink of an eye. They recorded "Knee Deep" The Mixtape under Muddy Water Entertainment in 2007...


From then until, Myc Ripley has dropped some mixtapes. A trio entitled, "The Dave Slappelle Show"- Seasons 1, 2, also Bootlegs and Bleezies. Then there is his latest 2008 mixtape, "The Adventures of Jack Rabbid". These projects are available at different sites for purchase and free download.

Presently, Myc Rip is working on yet another solo effort and mixtape that seems to be a lifetime in the making.
"BIGGUP and NUFF RESPECK in major way for the minority. WEST COASTIN 4eva eva!! If it ain't slappin I don't want it!!"
