Born, Eric Harris Jr. in Los Angeles, California in 1986, Blakk-Da-Profit began life In South Central. At the age of 10 years old his family packed up and moved to Dallas(Oak Cliff),Texas to avoid the pitfalls of gang life and drug activity to no avail. By the age of 15 Blakk was involved in both and that became the primary source of inspiration behind all of the music he would eventually write. With a unique mixture of vivid storytelling, detailed lyricism, and anthem like choruses, Blakk-Da-Profit paints a picture of life from the perspective of the street.
After being aired on an episode of "The First 48" in 2008 Blakk was sentenced to a life sentence without the possibility of parole despite proving at trial that he didn't pull the trigger that ended the victim's life. So in addition to music Blakk-Da-Profit aspires to bring awareness to what is known as the "felony murder rule" which can make you guilty of another person's crime unless you cooperate with authorities. Needless to say he did not agree to those terms and paid price as a result. So, keep in mind that when you're listening to Blakk-Da-Profit you're listening to what it sounds like behind enemy lines...
Special shout out to Trill Will for hearing the cry of a "Real 1" and providing the opportunity to make it all possible.
