In todayâ€™s music game, sometimes I wonder if new formats will be created; such as the days of when hip-hop was a new genre to our ears. The only way we can evolve is to have new blood pumped into the scene and this weekâ€™s subject is just that. From the city to the suburbs, twenty two year old â€œStir Crazyâ€ has been busy daily, producing bangers. In the day and age of most production being created on computers, Stir Crazy still keeps it old school by using hands-on hardware sequencing. One recent project he produced â€œDood Computerâ€ was first released only on cassette tape with a free digital download card. Stir crazy Explains, â€œOnce I had a keyboard/piano in front of me it took up my lifeâ€ he adâ€™s â€œI would say I do hip hop with metal and rock influences with a splash of wicked and darkness at times.â€ In 2003, Stir Crazy was created and influenced by his dadâ€™s friend and mentor DJ Rec who was a part of Eminemâ€™s crew in the 90â€™s. Rec produced beats and did DJ work on many of Eminemâ€™s older work.
Now with a catalog and endless hours of studio time Stir crazyâ€™s music has appeared on Bizarre, Project Pat, Tech N9ne, ICP, Twzitid, and many others releases. His long relationship with Shaggy 2 Dope’s younger brother Tre Pound got him placement on a couple of Psychopathic records. â€œSome people just click and I really love and respect their whole family as they all have helped me out a lot. With out them I would not even be close to where I am now. No one else could give you the type of motivation and work ethics like they can.â€ Stir crazy states.
