Intellect – Talking about going back to his roots…Intellect comes with a whole new sound to set himself apart from the rest of the hip-hop world. Something classy, jazzy, and smooth; “I See,” which is produced by Cool Ethan Productions and engineered by and recorded at Nossaic Productions Studio will set the standard for those who pursue “true” hip-hop. Born in Pensacola, FL, October 14, 1983, even as a youngster he was always into music. Intellect sang and participated in All County Chorus with his school choir all the way up until the 8th grade in junior high. He loved writing poetry and free styling at lunch with his friends. After spending a little bit of time in the Army and saving some money he figured it was time to get busy. In 2004-2006, Intellect got heavy into battle rapping and cypher sessions, then in 2007 he heard something new…it was the most “soulful sound” he had ever heard on an instrumental. A few weeks later “It’s Like What” was created and recorded at Nossaic Productions Studio in Tampa, FL. At that moment Intellect found his “place in hip-hop.” The name Intellect spawned from people always referring to him or his lyrics as something for the intellectual types. His music is about more than today’s talk of girls, clothes, etc. It goes back to the roots of what being an emcee means. You know smooth, melodic, intellectual music speaking on life, his love for music and everything in between…”Real” hip-hop. So here he is today giving you raw unabated energy in every track that Intellect conceives. He truly is “Hot Like Fire“!
