Great Bizczar Sinista Compact
The Bizczar Sinista developed a love for Hip Hop culture dating back to the 1980's. It all started after his cousin took him to the Hip Hop concerts Fresh Fest 1 & 2. He also was a loyal listener to the underground hip hop formats on the University of Chicago's WHPK radio station, and would record the shows to stay current with the trends. As a youth he attended the Singapore American School in Singapore and there became a student of the performing arts. After returning to Chicago and the years past he attended Hillcrest High School in Country Club Hills, Illinois. He was a class clown that wrote for the school newspaper, played sports, a member of the marching & concert band worked at a few record stores, and was a member of Junior Acheivement's program at WGCI radio in Chicago. The Junior Acheivement program at WGCI radio provided students in good academic standing the opportunity to learn the mechanics and participate in the full operation of a broadcast station. This included the development of program logs, establishing sales accounts, creating commercials, and broadcasting as a on air announcer. Other tasks were assisting in the production of formats for some of the biggests names in Chicago radio such as Tom Joyner, Doug Banks, Ramonski Luv and Disco Dave. Because of his good performance in the Junior Acheivement program, Ramonski Luv and Disco Dave would invite him to co-host and produce a Hip Hop format called the 'Rap Down' during it's early stages. After the conclusion of the Junior Acheivement program, he continued to work part time at several Chicagoland record stores and stayed in pursuit of a career in the Entertainment industry by staying active in Chicago's Hip Hop community. Several years later he contributed to a local music publication 'Jam Sessions' writing music reviews and interviewing established & rising recording artists and producers. He completed an album 'The Course Lessons In Rhymes' with friend and producer Johnny Holliday of Absoloot Beatz and did intern work for Warner/Elektra/Atlantic (WEA) Sony Music, Def Jam Records, Tommy Boy Records, and several companies that focused on street promotions. He was casted by Sharon King Casting for a supporting role in the Simone Nissan film 'Reasons'. This film starred the late Comedian/Actor Bernie Mac (who he played the younger chracter of), Actress/Model Lisa Raye, MC Eiht of Compton's Most Wanted, and Chicago broadcasting legend Bonnie Deshong. The film was directed by Monty Ross, who has produced many Spike Lee films. The movie was never released but it was Monty Ross that influenced Bizczar to enroll in Columbia College Chicago as a student of film and the performing arts. He joined C.U.M.A. and C.O.R.E., two organizations supporting students and locals trying to make in the Entertainment industry. During this time he was asked by Massive and DJ Equalizer, friends from the Chicago Hip Hop crew 'The Illstate Assassins', to co-host a bi-weekly format on the University of Chicago's radio station WHPK. The show would last 3 years so Bizczar would reconnect with another member of The Illstate Assassins, DJ and Producer Riot One of Sound Scandalz Entertainment. He and Riot One would completed Bizczar's debut album 'The Great Bizczar Sinista'. The 9 song released would do well in the underground market so Bizczar decided to record a 2nd album titled 'Battle Plans'. This album included production from Riot One, Chicago's DJ Clash Titan, Johnny Holliday and The Bizczar Sinista. The Bizczar Sinista has used all his knowledge and is stepping his game up for another run. He has completed a 3rd & 4th album and will market the material differently between now and next year. Some of the producers enlisted for the projects were The Vinyl Frontiers (from The Netherlands), Riot One, Johnny Holliday of Absoloot Beats, DJ Clash Titan and The Bizczar Sinista. He also completed some material with Chicago Hip Hop legend and B-Boy Stedy Serv.
