Hines Buchanan's career reads like pillars across the drafting plan of the L.A. hip hop scene.
After being handed a copy of Rap Pages by KRS-One, before he was old enough to drive, he secured an
internship at the magazine. Working with B-Boy Kingdom, Loud Records and Rumble/Pickininny Records he
learned the business of grassroots distribution and promotion. That led him to the legendary Project Blowed,
where he worked behind the scenes for over a decade.
During that time he learned production techniques from the Rhymin’ Riddlore and collaborated with Aceyalone in
the creation of “Project Blowed Presents the Good Brothers”.
He went on to further explore A&R, corporate promotion, and music software, and has proven himself to be one
of the rare few who can keep his balance on the line between businessman and artist.
An encyclopedia of entertainment knowledge, he has created a collection of comedic characters with a roster of
dead-on impersonations ranging from Barack Obama to the RZA. His voices caught the attention of the producer
Prince Paul (DeLaSoul/GraveDiggaz) who has feautured him as the RZA in Handsome Boy Modeling School's
"White People" album and as Morgan Freeman in the Souls of Mischief's "Montezuma's Revenge".
He continues to work with Aceyalone live and in the studio, and is constantly pushing boundaries with his
musical and comedic skills. Hines is helping breathe a new breath of life into the West Coast scene.
"Hines is one of the most creative multi-talented artists that I have ever worked with." -Riddlore
"Hines is the guy I call when I need the funniest and most random impressions for my projects.
He's not just funny, but brilliantly insightful." -Prince Paul
"Hines Buchanan is the past, present and future of music." -Aceyalone
