Arson (Vince Turner Jr.) was born and raised in the rural city of Vidalia, Louisiana on September 26, 1984. At the early age of 7, Arson gained an exceptional interest in thesauruses and poetry. This eventually lead to him showing an overwhelming interest in the wordplay of Hip-Hop. Arson never missed an episode of Yo MTV Raps. Over the developing years, Arson found himself in an extreme state of complacense within finding his own style and sound. No need to speak on life in the streets, Arson says 'ASK ANYBODY WHO KNOW ME AND THEY'LL TELL YOU ABOUT MY STREET REPUTATION. REAL RECOGNIZE REAL, NO NEED TO ANNOUNCE!' Once Arson began being comfortable within himself, he released the jewel 'Eaze Up' to the streets. This song became an instant urban classic in the streets and block parties all over Louisiana and Mississippi in 2006. After releasing that single. Arson came back and dropped the infamous mixtape: 'Fuel 4 The Flame Volume 1', officially claiming his own territory in the Hip-Hop industry. Throughout the next 2 1/2 years, Arson has been learning and perfecting his knowledge of the business aspect of the music industry along with the help of his 2 loyal and devoted managers from Block Royal: Flexx & Kid. Arson's latest 2009 release 'Scorched Earth', is sure to be a classic underground album for the history books and finally shed a mainstream limelight on a well determined and ambitious artist. Arson is one of the newest additions to Block Royal Ent. So it was officially confirmed on 03/07/07. Let it be known. BLOCK ROYAL, THE MOVEMENT IS UPON U. THE REASON BEHIND Arson: 1ST AND FOREMOST, THE MAIN REASON I CHOSE THIS NAME IS TO HONOR THE COUNTLESS NUMBER OF BLACK MEN THAT WERE ACCUSED OF ARSON AND RELATED CRIMES AND WERE LYNCHED IN LOUISIANA FROM 1878-1946. I REPRESENT 1 MAN IN PARTICULAR; EDWARD GRAY. HE WAS ACCUSED OF ARSON AND LYNCHED IN VIDALIA, LA ON 11/16/1889. R.I.P. MY MIDDLE NAME IS EDWARD ALSO; NOT TO MENTION, I WAS ALWAYS PLAYIN WITH FIRE. Of course, we all know that arson is the vicious crime of igniting fire to objects of ownership. I chose this name for that and for 3 more important reasons: 1. In street or traditional war, arson was and is nearly a mandatory act. Arson has been committed throughout history through intent. Riots and rival battles engage in the act often; all out street warfare! 2. My name is derived from my 5 favorite M.C.s: 2pac, Scarface, Jay-Z, Biggie, & Nas. Why? All of their names have at least 3 or more letters of the word Arson is within them all. 2pAc ShakuR, ScARface, Shawn cARter, NotORiouS, NASiR jOnes see! My mission is to burn every booth down that I step foot in similar to what Napoleon did Russia during their war (Scorched Earth). He and Genghis Khan are my 2 favorite conquerers of all time!
