With 14 indie releases, numerous international collabs, and over 15 years in the music industry, Los Angeles (by way of North Carolina) emcee, ethemadassassin, is the physical embodiment of perseverance, indie artistry, and hustle.
Debuting as a solo artist in 2004 with the album, “Proverbs,” E followed up with 2008’s, “Tomorrow Never Comes,” and 2013’s, “Soul On Fire,” all of which E executive produced. During those years, E formed the now defunct group, Veteran Assassins, and co-executive produced and released the albums, “Veteran Assassins,” in 2010, “Paint The Town Red,” in 2012, and, “G.O.L.D.” in 2016.
ethemadassassin had an eventful 2018, dropping 2 EP’s, (“Motivations” with Luse Kanz, produced by THE WDSMN, “Bear Handz: Magmatic” produced by QuakeMobb) and his 4th solo album (“Bear Handz 2: Bear Market” produced by Nazar).
ethemadassassin started 2019 off with a super bang, releasing his 5th solo album, “Bear Handz 3: Animal House,” produced by ShortFuZe with features from Celinski The Mayor, J.Bond (of Illpo), O.G. Bobby Ne’gro, Pisto Pop, Sneek Rothstein, and Luse Kanz. E also made his mark in the music production world as he earned two movie soundtrack placements: 1) “Big Leagues” featured in “Adopt A Highway” with Ethan Hawke, and, “Stand Up (Put Our Fists Up),“ featured in “I Am No Longer Here (Ya No Estoy Aqui),” featuring Juan Daniel Garcia Treviño. “Stand Up (Put Our Fists Up)” helped BMG Production Music earn the 2019 Mark Award for “Best Hip-Hop/R&B/Urban Track,” with E serving as lead writer and solo vocalist in collaboration with Josh Mobley and Moria Denson (the duo also collaborated on the creation of “Big Leagues.”)
In March 2020, ethemadassassin released, “Chain Reaction,” a collaborative EP with Los Angeles producer/emcee Diar Lansky.
