Imagine KRS One, Rakim and Nas mashed up with a little Big Pun on acid! You get deep, visual, unapologetic lyrical rap with a message! That’s Armageddon!
Bronx, New York native, Armageddon, has been rapping since the 5th grade. His pursuit of a rap career began in 1985 with a rap clique called Wild Style, which consisted of five kids rapping and singing for fellow students at a Bronx public school. Later, at the still very early age of 16, Geddy, as he is affectionately called, met Fat Joe and quickly became a part of Terror Squad, the crew that then consisted of Fat Joe and Keith Nut and later Big Pun. The group has come a long way since its inception.
In the years leading to Terror Squadâ€™s biggest hit record ever, â€œLean Back,â€ Armageddon stayed busy writing, performing, and producing. Described by Fat Joe as â€œthe deepest lyricist in the group,â€ he has produced and written over a dozen records for Fat Joe, Big Pun, and Terror Squad, collectively. Heâ€™s also credited with co-writing tracks featured in hit films such as Fast and Furious and Rush Hour. Additionally, Armageddon helped produce music for the WCW Wrestling Organization. One of his biggest accomplishments to date is Fat Joeâ€™s 2001 platinum album Jealous Ones Still Envy which he executive produced.
In maintaining his longevity in the music industry, Armageddon has embarked on new endeavors that display his versatility, as well as his diverse interests in the music business. He recently launched Geddy Communications Inc. in an effort to establish his independence as an artist, producer, and executive. In regards to his latest venture, Armageddon declares, â€œI love to create and innovate, whether it is entertainment, technology, fashion or business in general. I was idle as a TS artist. I felt it was time to evolve from background man to front liner. I have to always be growing; I need to be able to express myself, and GedCom is part of that expression. Itâ€™s an extension of me.â€ Under GedCom, as he likes to refer to his company, Armageddon is currently working to release his long awaited solo album, â€œThe Journal,â€ via his music brand, GeddyMusic.com. With his incredible lyrical ability and his business savvy mentality, he is sure to take hip hop to another level.
