Become a Souljuice producer

MC/Producer/DJ Mr. CRF first got into HIPHOP music in the mid 80,s after being fed a diet of rap music by his elder brother, who was also a DJ back then. Early influences ranged from the Ultramagnetic MC's, Public Enemy, K-Solo to MC Buzz B (whom he's now working with) Hijack and Poor Righteous Teachers to name but a few..

Around 1992 he started writing lyrics and producing beats with Mc Wayne D and then took to Dj-ing a year later when he bought his first set of decks. After creating quite a few demo tapes and Djing at a few local bars and clubs, CRF began to make a bit of a name for himself locally around town. It was during a freestyle session at the Canal Bar in 95 that CRF met DJ Jepi and they have worked on various projects together ever since.. After producing a whole load of tracks they gained interest in 1996 from an independent company named Wax Digital and got various gigs and P.A.'s around town in Nightclubs and Music Festivals. Their relationship with WAX came to an end about 12 months later due to the company wanting CRF to take more of a commercial approach with the music they were creating. As the DJ-ing Mr CRF created the Critical Beatdown Rap Show approx.

4 years ago and has had his show on 4 different radio stations (Most of which have been Pirates - Buzz 88, Northsoul etc). His show has commanded a good following due to the Underground Independent Hip Hop he chooses to play, rather than the commercialized Jiggy hip hop, that various other Dj's play. Right now, his show can be heard on new station, Extreme 106.6 FM on Friday nights. Besides DJ-ing and MC-ing, MR CRF also has his own independent Hip Hop magazine, also called Critical Beatdown plus an independent label "ToneDef Recordings". As far as the magazine is concerned, each issue is getting better and the response so far has been excellent, with a circulation of around 1000 (100 of these are reaching the streets of New York!)

The record Label "ToneDef " was basically started to get his music to the public instead of waiting for other people to do it for him. So far, the first release on the Label was a limited edition 7" vinyl featuring 6 tracks from Mr. CRF, with Guest vocalist MC Wayne D. The production coming from CRF, DJ Jepi and King Infamous. More tracks are coming soon, plus they'll be some new joints from the Oldskool veteran MC Buzz B & also "The Rap Parasites", which are the new Hip Hop crew put together and started by CRF. There'll also be some Critical Beatdown Mix tapes from CRF coming soon. You can also check out the Mr CRF remix for DMC records of the Busta Rhymes classic "Put Ya Hands where my eyes can see", released during Sept/Oct 2001, on 12" vinyl plus remixes for Big L and Mobb Deep hopefully coming soon.
