WhiteOwl was born on July 9, 1976, in the Bronx, N.Y.
He is a native New York MC, DJ, beat maker and record producer. An all-around hip-hop junkie, WhiteOwl is well known for his soulful beats, as well as spitting an aggressive form of freestyle.
He was first introduced to the world as WhiteOwl, on Reprise Records, in 2001, when he served as an MC in the short-lived hip-hop quartet, Bad Ronald. The group garnered significant MTV airplay with its first single "Let's Begin." The video, produced by Marc Klasfeld, memorably opens with White Owl rising from a garbage can filled with Marijuana smoke.
Shit Was Wack.
WhiteOwl is a Greenburgh, N.Y. native, who began spinning records when he was 13. He further developed his musical skills at Woodlands High School, where he first learned the art of spitting and the keys to developing memorable beats.
As a freshman at Binghamton University in upstate New York, he worked at the college radio station, 90.5 WHRW. During the long, cold Binghamton winters WhiteOwl taught himself to use the Akai MPC-2000—the device that, to this day, provides his beats with their signature soulful, trippy feel. Whether making originally based tracks, or chopping samples, he delivers raw boom bap every time.
Upon graduating Binghamton in 1998, WhiteOwl hit New York City looking for a job in the music business.
He regularly DJed at many NYC Hip-Hop spots, including The Wetlands, where he was a regular in the Hip-Hop room for Konkrete Jungle.
His 1st Mix-Tape hit Burkina on Houston in 1996.
After bombarding A&Rs and heads with mix-tapes and freestyles, and working with future stars Hesher, DJ Mondee, FazeOne, DJ Gravy and DJ IXL, he received a Reprise record deal in 2001. He spent 2001 traveling the country by van with Bad Ronald, rhyming and spinning for large crowds as an opening act for many famous bands. In 2002, when Bad Ronald disbanded, WhiteOwl began focusing on his career as a DJ in the NYC clubs.
In 2011, WhiteOwl had a chance meeting with his partner in 1 State Hip - Hop, Mr. Bruno Beatz. The musical magic was immediate, and after creating the song " The Secret " together, the 2 started working on the album " Higher Intelligence. "
WhiteOwl, along with his production partner, Mr. Bruno Beatz, dropped 1 State Hip—Hop's first project,
" Higher Intelligence, " on 8/19/2013.
After working with Bruno Beatz, DJ Statik Selektah, DJ Mondee and others, WhiteOwl has decided to begin work on the 2nd Solo Joint, " Universal Intelligence, " which is dropping in early 2016.
Blessings, Love, Light, and WhiteOwl.
