The Brodyman has arrived, straight out of North Philly, to take his place in the music business. Feeling that Hip-Hop has lost its way, Brodyman is here to lead it back to its hard-core roots. Every so often the rap game needs to legitimize itself and that’s only done when someone from the streets, raps about the hardcore street life. Like 2Pac, Biggie and 50 Cent, Brodyman plans to “take listeners on a journey back to the mean streets of my hood where people do what they do to survive; the struggles, the hustle, the pain.”
Born Sheriff Hunley in May 16, 1982 Brodyman grew up in North Philadelphia in a one parent home. The streets were his teacher and that led him to a life of larceny, drug addiction and imprisonment. He began writing rhymes in prison as a form of “self-therapy” to release the frustration that was bent up inside of him. While in prison he developed the nick name “Enforcer;” always being called on to do battles rhymes with other rhymers also incarcerated.
After his release from prison, Brodyman met up with Producers Wes Hatton and Owen James from Ill Kidz Entertainment who began to produce and shop his material to major labels. Rhyming for the past ten years, Brodyman developed rough and rugged style that is captivating and sincere. Brodyman’s deep and aggressive tone combined with tracks that evoke a strong emotional cry about the street life has resulted in an impressive local fan base.
Brodyman says he is on a mission to “bring the East back.” He believes that Hip-Hop has lost its way and is not very credible; “the industry needs me right now” says Brodyman.
