Very Energetic Nubian(New-Being) On Mics Opening Universal Sounding (VENOMOUS) 2000 THE ULTRA EMCEE-
"I define myself as a humble student of the art," reflects Underground Hip Hop sensation, Venomous 2000: The Ultra Emcee (Dwayne Sheppard). For the 29-year-old emcee, his "classroom" was his native Passaic, New Jersey; drawing creative influence from timeless sources including: soul classics like Marvin Gaye and the Jackson 5 to Hip Hop legends, KRS-One and Rakim. Cultivating himself as a force for Hip Hop, Venomous began freestyling verses and writing rhymes in 1994 heavily influenced by pioneers of the day: The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang Clan, and BootCamp, and what he describes as their 'hard/lyrical/divine approach to the music.'
Beneath his reserved exterior, dwells an energetic microphone-controller whose on-stage moniker, Venomous, –an acronym meaning "VERY ENERGETIC NEW=BEING(NUBIAN) "ON MICS OPENING UNIVERSAL SOUNDING–describes him perfectly. Garnering acclaim spreading from and throughout the Tri-State area, Venomous' lyrical ability sparked a legion of supporters and a shared-stage spotlight with famed voices in Hip Hop including, DICE RAW OF THE ROOTS, C-RAYZ WALZ, RAH DIGGA, KILLARMY, HOMEBOY SANDMAN, LOST BOYZ, 84, CYMARSHALL LAW, JOHN ROBINSON(SCIENZ OF LIFE), among others. Equally active off stage as on; Venomous also produces head-nodding beats, engineers his sound, and keeps his notebooks filled with verse after verse. Venomous relentlessly finds outlets to divert his creativity through group affiliations with THE FORMULIS(w/Phonetic and Fenalm), EMANC PROC( w/RealEyez Mystic, Orator The Great, Heartbeat the Producer, and NuffSaid), DELINQUENT SOUNDZ ENTERTAINMENT, NEXT PHILOSOPHY DIVISION, ENERGY AND LIGHT (w/Starwalker), and NONAMESOCIETY.
