Hop Recording Artist, RAMPAGE has been highly respected in the hip hop/rap arena for over two decades. He exploded onto the hip hop breeding ground of Brooklyn, NY in 1994. He partnered with his first cousin, hip hop legend Busta Rhymes to form one of the most successful hip hop/rap entities to enter the music game, “The Flipmode Squad”. RAMPAGE, went by the moniker “The 1st Lieutenant” aka “The Last Boyscout” of the Flipmode Squad. The group consisted of a collective of rappers which included Rah Digga, Spliff Star and Baby Sham with each of the aforementioned making a cameo on Busta Rhymes first solo offering titled “The Coming”. With the success of “The Coming”, Rampage aka 1st Lieutenant was offered his own solo deal which resulted in a RIAA “Gold” certified album titled “Scouts Honor, By Way Of Blood” from two hit singles “Wild for the Night and “Take it to the Streets”. Since his meteoric rise with Flipmode Squad and his own solo endeavors, Rampage has been instrumental in penning numerous chart topping hits which garnered Grammy and MTV award recognition including “Woo-Hah”, “Wild For The Night”, “Flava In Your Ear Remix” and “I Know What You Want”. Rampage has worked with some of the most prolific and profound hip hop and R&B talent on the planet over the years including Alicia Keys, LL Cool J, and Notorious B.I.G. to name a few. As CEO of Deep Freeze Entertainment, RAMPAGE is definitely making power moves in the realm of entertainment. The Legendary Rapper/Music Executive is on a mission to bring true hip hop back to the forefront. The current release of RAMPAGE’s highly anticipated single “Pound Cake,” produced by multi-platinum producer, Felony Muzik, proves that Rampage still holds his relevance in today’s hip hop industry.
Hello my name is William Smith aka Big Will. One day when I was in school, I told my parents I wanted to be in the entertainment business, that’s when I signed up for a casting company called, “Explore Talent”. Explore Talent matched me up with a local entertainment company that was on the East Coast. Since that company had a local television show, I was able to have my own television segment where I would do interviews with people in my city. Then I started to help out another company by being a Talent scout for them. I also have been on many internet radio stations too, by doing all of this it has given me a lot of exposure. When you have a lot of exposure that is cool, because if you work hard and keep God first something will eventually pay off. I have also been on the cover of three magazines in the past.
