Overview Edit

Axe is the co-founder of Sacred Society Battle League,[2] which includes Jive Records artist Mickey Factz and Rawkus Records artist Novel Stevenson. Between 1998 and 2002 Axe also created several of the internets first battle rap websites which greatly increased the popularity of the rap battle scene. Battle leagues such as Ell Oh Crew, New Jerusalem, Sacred Society, Ground Zero, and The Chamber were extremely popular among rookie and veteran battlers in the late 1990s and early 2000s.[3]

While no longer a battle rapper he still continues to manage the production of Sacred Society albums and mixtapes. Besides creating the artwork for Sacred Society albums several Sacred artists also feature his artwork on their covers including 13adluck'sSnortfolio Volume 2 and Franky Goya's Suck My Style.[4][5]

In August 2015, Axe released the first tracks to the tribute album Random Price to honor the passing of Duck Down records artist Sean Price who is a member of the rap trio Random Axe.

Sacred Society Battle League Edit

In 1999, battlers Fam Nice and Axe who were members of Ell Oh Crew, branched out to create the forum style version of battle rap that is currently used today with their leagues Sacred Society (formerly known as New Jerusalem). Those sites conducted battle rap in both audio and text. However, it was first and foremost a battle league. Sacred Society had interviews, hip hop news, tournaments with rookie and pro levels known as the Boot Camp and the Gravel Pit and big yearly tournaments were known as Pay-Per-View. There was a cash pot and the winner took all. PPV 8 was the last of these tournaments. Battlers were also ranked and competed for the top position known as the "Supreme Lyricist" on a monthly basis. The "Esco Award" was given on a monthly basis as well for the emcee with the grimiest, darkest content and style.[6]
