He was born as Marcus White but to the world of Hip Hop he is a MONSTRACITY ... Seige Monstracity a hot producer with an ear to make music that is transcending a new era of hip hop and the way rappers will deliver their flow.
Initially he wanted to rap, but he found his strength in producing the sound. Thank God he decided to refocus his talent because the sound of his beat is what lured Tyrese to him! Almost like the Pied Pipper ... yes, Tyrese was lured in! Let's take a trip down memory lane:
Seige is from Detroit but he made an ambitious move to Los Angeles - ready to take over the game as many set out to do, but he ended up being homeless for about a month. Down on his luck but up on his faith he scored a job with Guitar Center and what seemed to be a pretty good come-up turned into a full proof blessing.
When you're broke you don't do lunch ... you stay in the office or on the job, drink free coffee or talk as much as you can on your cell phone before its time to head back in. Well, for Seige since he didn't have lunch money he would stay at the store and produce beats. Man, Guitar Center sounds like a cool place to work ... can I get a part-time gig? OK, ok (got side-tracked for a minute) but, yessss ... he was taking advantage of the moment and making his beats hoping that it would lead to money. Well, little did he know his plan was inspired by more than his hunger for extra cash; it was divinely inspired by God. Tyrese came into the store, heard the music, thought it was a MONSTRACITY and the rest is history in the making (and yes, that's how he got the second half of his name).
Since being discovered by Tyrese in 2005 Seige has worked with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, T-Pain, Too Short, Kurupt, Marsha Ambrosius, Busta Rhymes and many others. (-Source http://voltronrecordz.blog.com/seige/; October 31, 2013)
Although he is officially on the map and working with celebrities; Seige told me that one of his biggest goals is to help his sister finish her music project - wow, great producer and awesome brother - you gotta love him!
