Supraliminal grew up in a working-class neighborhood in Somerville, Massachusetts. His Hip Hop musical journey started in high school; where he provided beatbox instrumentals to those that wanted to spit their flava out on the school parking lot. This sparked his interest in Hip Hop (ultimately) and has kept the fire burning, so to speak. He understood cadence and wordplay as soon as he hit the mic, which caused those that heard him to respect what he was bringing to the table. Now he is on tracks with the likes of Tragedy Khadafi, Joell Ortiz, Raekwon, Styles P, Havoc, and other respected kats in this Hip Hop industry (all but Joell Ortiz appear on his latest effort, Supra Cum Laude).
Supra Cum Laude is an album worth listening too, it has east coast flavors that use synth sounds that bring a sense of well-thought-out originality. His choruses are always on point (sniper status) with verses that are spit hard like titanium. Many MCs would be a bit humbled by being on tracks with such legends (as the line up on this album), but Supraliminal holds his own side by side with the legends. His veteran poweress take you on a ride that is both lyrical and interesting at the same time, not once will you want to press pause or stop when listening to this gem (this is promised). There is enough tricks for the ears to perk up and the topics are vast enough to evoke intelligence.
We've named the artists on the album, now it wouldn't be right if this article continued without naming the producers (quite a diverse line up); A-Rayz, Beats For Food, Boonie Mayfield, Cool FDHavoc, J-Bux, JL Beatz, Mike Irish, and Poobs. I'll leave you with this video...
