There are very few emcees today who truly come from the heart, who have a strong passion and love for their craft, and who are considered an "original, next level" artist. Once you hear one verse from Edgar Allen Floe, you realize you have spotted one of these kinds of artists.
Edgar Allen Floe, 27, has seen Hiphop grow and blossom in different "phases." From the "old school" Kurtis Blow, Whodini days; the KRS-ONE, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane "golden age"; to the new millennium of Hiphoppas with a connection to the Internet. Edgar has been in love with Hiphop since as far back as he can remember, and began writing at the age of 14. Initially dreaming of being a Deejay, he slowly found he could really be considered, by many, as a top notch emcee. So, he decided to become serious with his craft in 1996.
A versatile artist, Edgar Allen is also known as Slicemysta, producing for his immediate crew, The Undefined, with partner in rhyme, Mal Demolish. He has produced many tracks that have been well received by a number of fans all over the world. He is also a part of the 15 man musical family, The Justus League, which include members 9th Wonder, Little Brother, Cesar Comanche, L.E.G.A.C.Y., among others.
Edgar Allen Floe is destined to be one of the most talented, upcoming emcees today. With his new project, called "True Links," as well as many other projects in the works for this year, you will be hearing much more from Edgar Allen Floe. Stay tuned.
With the Justus League maintaining a healthy buzz, it is only righteous that the next member of the budding conglomerate take his appropriate place amongst the others. Edgar Allan Floe (best known for his remarkable "Righteous Way To Go" off of Justus League's NC State of Mind compilation) will be taking his swings with the help of 9th Wonder and Khrysis among others with the release of True Links EP dropping June 21st on MCEO Records.
"With so many different producers, I still managed to create a strong sense of cohesiveness, instead of just making a "compilation." Each producer has his own unique style, but we all have a common love for the music, and that's what shines through. Hence the name TRUE LINKS."
After True Links, the next project will be from The Undefined, called the Plan U EP. This EP will be 8 new tracks, all produced by Slicemysta. And then in the fall of 2005, Edgar Allen Floe's first official album, titled the Streetwise LP, will be released. The LP will feature production from 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Slicemysta, and will feature Sean Boog of The Away Team, Median, Joe Scudda, among others.
