Venomous2000 feat Sensey Shogun


Born and raised in Passaic, New Jersey, Venomous2000 has been a positive force in Hip-Hop culture for over 20 years! Venomous2000 was introduced to Hip-Hop in the 80s through artists such as KRS-ONE, RAKIM, MC Lyte, and Public Enemy. His cousin, Irocdis, co-founder of the group Deadly Snakes, signed to Tommy Boy Records, greatly inspired Venomous, who learned music by his side. He spent long hours in the studio with the Deadly Snakes and accompanied them to their concerts. From there comes his name, Venomous, in line with his cousin’s approach, who advocated fighting against negative music (the poison) with anti-venom (positivity).

Venomous2000 is now focused on his solo career, in total independence. He produces his records, makes his music videos, and organizes his concerts. This approach is due to necessity but also to the desire for freedom, a spiritual quest that gives birth to human and generous music.

He has now completed many solo projects with features from Inspectah Deck, John Robinson, El Da Sensei, Cymarshal Law, LIFElong, Smif N Wessun, to name a few. Venomous2000 completed his first tour in Europe and Canada in 2012 with « So fresh & So Hip-Hop » and was honored to share the stage with Immortal Technique, Chip-Fu, Keith Murray, and Afu-Ra. Thanks to this, he established numerous connections in Europe, which allowed him to do several international tours in 2014 and 2015.

His style is rooted in the tradition of true « Boom Bap » Hip-Hop with a conscious and positive message, making him a worthy heir to KRS-ONE, Black Thought (The Roots), Common, Mos Def, Jurassic 5, etc. Venomous2000 carries his name « Ultra Emcee » (master of ceremonies) wonderfully. He is a real phenomenon on stage, very interactive with the audience. His principle is to always give his maximum in live performances to create a moment of sharing and memorable pleasure!
