Born on April 30th 1983, in Trinidad and raised in the bowels of Brooklyn, Shomari Joseph Greene quickly became a street elite among rap mongers for his uncanny ability to articulate and convert the most complex messages into a simple, effortless but wicked delivery. While most mc’s pursue a career in hip hop from a purely economical prospective, rags to riches is merely a side effect to Spyder’s true motivation. He’s in this game for one reason and one reason only—to slay Giants for a profit. And if the Giant is big enough and his reputation vast enough, Spyder will slay him for free.
His weapon of choice, a Microphone, of course. Signed to Grammy award winning engineer/producer (Neal Pogue) Spyder’s talents have not gone unnoticed among rap’s superstars. “Spyder is what you would get when an artist from New York is left in the South too long,” says Kane from the Ying Yang Twins. Indeed, as an unsigned artist, Spyder’s credits speak for themselves. They include KASHI KICKS SPONSORSHIP and OVER 300 RECORDS RECORDED, including countless mixtapes (MOST RECENT (NEW JERSEY DEVIL AND DJ HAZE) HOSTED BY LIL WAYNE). Spyder is also featured on the “The Come Up” and “Cocaine City” DVDs. You can also find Spyder and his music on various websites and reviews including XXL Magazine.
His performances and features have made him a household name in Europe and as far as Asia. Spyder has worked with such talents as YOUNG BUCK, F.L.Y.,BO HAGON , RON HOWARD,CALICO JONEZ,STACK BUNDLES, GRAVY, MURDA MOOK, DJ CLARK KENT, SIZZLA,THE YING YANG TWINS,TRILLVILLE, KANE BEATS, FATBOY, DYLAUN, BEN MADD (ARP), D4L, COCOA JONES, FIONA SIMONE,ELLIOT NESS,AGALLAH, GQ BEATS,YOUNG FRENCH, KOOL ACE, and MC SHA D. Given the chance, Spyder has the talent and the longevity to take the rap industry by storm. To sum-up his potential effect on the industry in a phrase he can be considered, “the industry’s sleeping giant.” To sum it up in a word, “Armageddon.” Simply, Spyder is the next big thing in Rap.
