b. Louisiana, USA. From Compton, California, Hi-C is some way short of the in-yer-face gangsta rap made famous by that area: ‘I’m into music first, messages later. I’m not hardcore and I don’t constantly say “black this” or “black that”’. Hi-C introduced his pleasant, personable fare to a national audience in 1990 when singles like ‘I’m Not Your Puppet’ rose high in the Billboard charts. He also took roles in movies, including Encino Man, CB4 and South Central. In CB4 it was Hi-C who provided the voice and lyrics for the Chris Rock character’s on-screen raps. He is backed on record by DJ Tony A from Wilmington, California.
