Artist: THE iDENTiTY CRiSiS

Bio:

THE iDENTiTY CRiSiS is a re-energized, revitalized, and hungrier than ever rapper. His popularity has been at a steady growing pace: one fan at a time. His fans are not only extremely passionate, but they are also spreading the word. Major and independent labels all over the world have started looking at him with new found respect. Most labels have intentions to re-release the critically acclaimed "Record of the Year" "I felt like I was sitting on a gold mine, and I wanted to strike while the iron was hot", he says about his third studio album entitled "Breakfast With a Psychopath".

Choosing to remain independent with his label Radio Insect Records, THEiDC feels like he is better than he has ever been as an artist. His work covers many topics including life, love, self-esteem issues, older women, and pathological liars. Mixing house, electro, breaks, and dance hall beats with dirty guitars and radio friendly hooks, this is arguably the most musically consistent album in his library. The unlikely combination of mosh-pit energy with club-vibe is constant throughout this booty-shaking experience. Ever unique, progressively innovative, yet intricately designed for mass appeal, this album is the next step in the evolution of THE iDENTiTY CRiSiS.
