"THE WANTED EMCEES" originated in St. Louis, Missouri in 1987. Three best friends formed what they perceived as the "new" sound of Hip Hop/Rock. Little did these New Pioneers of Old School Hip Hop realize that their music would reach so many people.
By combining different styles from East and West Coast Rap Stars, while mixing backgrounds from Pop, Rock, and R&B, THE WANTED EMCEES created a sound that was very unique and different for the times. Some would even say ahead of the times for its day.
THE WANTED EMCEES would perform for whoever would listen and entered every contest they could find. This persistence earned them the 1990 Title of Missouri State Rap Champions. They held this Title for two years through many competitions and battles.
THE WANTED EMCEES had a successful release of "KrackerJack" on their own label, CMT Records. The song received some marginal radio play in and around the St. Louis area in 1992, and gave the band some local notoriety.
Over the course of time, THE WANTED EMCEES have refined their art, changing with the times, performing in the Hip-Hop Underground scene in and around St. Louis. There were setbacks, challenges, and triumphs through this time period, but THE WANTED EMCEES stayed true to the game, and never gave up.
THE WANTED EMCEES signed with Chained Duck Records in 2002, and produced an album with 12 songs.
THE WANTED EMCEES have made a mark in the history pages of Hip Hop/Rap. MITCH FREEZE, C.D., and DJ KMT are the members of THE WANTED EMCEES, and can be defined as the BEST ORIGINAL HIP HOP TRIO with the deepest of old school roots.
The beat goes on with new songs being released today, and well into the future.
