Upper Echelon Entertainment presents, “CTK: CERTIFIED TRACK KILLERS”. CTK is a lyrically explosive team of young, hungry, and talented emcees who’s sole purpose is to kill any track that is presented to them, to make it their own. With members hailing from Atlanta and Indianapolis, CTK has exploded across the internet. This mixture consists of original material as well as mixtape tracks from its members. First to kill the track is MIDSOUTH.
With the patience and dedication of an unknown, seasoned Vet, layered with a delivery swagger that has not been heard yet, By the time MIDSOUTH was 16, he was mesmerizing older combatants with the lyrical depth of a seasoned professional Major rap artist. This Georgia raised, southern fried emcee, was first introduced to hip-hop at an early age. This understanding of music, the ability to create melodies, lyrics, vocal arrangements, along with a dose of "realness", is what entitles MIDSOUTH to his place amongst the industry's elite.
While being moved back and forth from the South and the Midwest, MIDSOUTH not only adapted to the change in the weather and artistic attitudes, but also most importantly, gained an appreciation for the musical diversity. His music is a deadly and infectious combination of his dirty south vocal roots spliced with some of the Midwest's and dirty south's most potent producers and beat makers. While performing in many underground competitions in both Atlanta and throughout the Midwest, MIDSOUTH quickly gained a massive and loyal fan base. His following has grown with every performance and with his vocal ability and stage presence; MIDSOUTH is becoming one of the more exciting and sought after acts in the major recording industry.
While many recording artists stay focused on one general location and one style of music, MIDSOUTH represents the Midwest as well as The Dirty South. This diversity has enabled him to conquer a vast majority of the music listeners, while at the same time, staying true to his roots. With the music industry's revolving door of artists,
the mission of MIDSOUTH is to become a mainstay in the industry and one of the best performers in the history of the music world.
Planning for commercial success, the goal of MIDSOUTH is to be an "URBAN LEADER", paving the way for the next generation of underground emcees to rise to the surface and display the multiple artistic styles of HIP HOP!
Signed to an exclusive recording deal by Upper Echelon Entertainment in 2005, MIDSOUTH will be elevated to great lengths; the urban music scene can expect a new player in the Rap world.
Bursting on the scene with his impressive, heat-laced singles, “American Made” produced by Retro CEO, “Pedicure”, “My Life”, and "CHOP SHOP" along a variety of mix cd singles, MIDSOUTH will prove to be more than just a hit maker but will display his talent, style and personality that will capture the covers of multiple magazine publications very soon!
