Genre: Hip Hop/Rap, underground
F.a.y.s.e. which stands for Fuck All You Shitty Emcees is an underground MC from the great state of North Carolina. His style is a gumbo consisting of in your face shit talk, introspection, and good ol' fashioned lyricism. Born Kevin Alan Stanley in Philly and raised in Fayetteville, his love for hip hop has grown ever since the first listen. He grew up in a humble household with little to no musical inspiration except for his mother who sang in the church choir. At first not a serious artist this changed drastically when fellow MC, Hiottworld, came home with a knack for making beats and infused F.a.y.s.e. with a drive that has since flourished. He moved to Wilmington, NC in 2005 and met Scholar and Essentials which ended up along with Hiottworld in forming a group known locally as The Fleet. The Fleet rocked several venues in Port City such as The Soapbox, Charlie Brownz, 16 Taps, ect. along the likes of MindsOne, Fuzz Jackson, and Jamocalus. The Fleet broke up as Scholar and Essentials moved away and F.a.y.s.e. continued to rock the town with Hiottworld and other long time friends/mcs J Manyk and Southpaw. Eventually moving back to Fayetteville, F.a.y.s.e. began to bring his mic skills to any venue he could and still contiues to do so. Traveling out of town or state to tear up a stage is not uncommon as Georgia and South Carolina have also felt the presence of his music. Through the process of his growth as an artist F.a.y.s.e. has faced many trials and tribulations from being homeless and hungry to having his head wanted dead to falling outs with those closest to him. Nothing will keep him down. His first solo project, a concept album titled "On the Way" is set for release in December 2011 and will be available online for download and around the streets of the Southeast if you want the hardcopy. Help keep the movement alive and the forever burning passion might spark the blunt to your next high.
