Top of Da Game
In early 2001 Skryptrs Testimony decided to pursue a career as a rap artist. Despite his motivation and determination Skrypt was laughed at by many. The ridicule and lack of interests by his own friends and family would soon serve as his motivation to success. After writing a few dozen verses Skrypt began to grow tiresome of his constant search for instrumental tracks. If it wasn't poor quality mp3's downloaded from the net, it was five dollar instrumental mix tapes with 3 good tracks. Soon after Skrypt began to look for an alternative means of finding good instrumental tracks. Stealing a CD from an associate Skrypt installed a simple loop based software on his computer and began create his own tracks. Within that same year Skrypt took advice from his uncle and purchased an Akai MPC 2000. Two years passed and Skrypt was armed with enough material to record an album. Blessed with a room full of equipment Skrypt had one obvious problem; a microphone booth (or lack of). With no more room to spare Skrypt threw out his bed, made room for a mic booth, and slept on the floor for two years. He would now spend the next six months recording his first album 'top of da game'. With no promotion, radio play, or live shows 'top of da game' sold a few hundred copies. However, criticism seemed to come from every angle and with the disappointment in sales Skrypt was frustrated. Angry and blaming himself Skrypt decided to step his game up. He created an indie label Sik Cat Entertainment, built a recording studio, and focused on writing songs. Skrypt returned one year later with a 25 track mixtape coined 'On da Rise'. The mix tape contained 25 tracks of which Skrypt produced 12. The mix tape would go on to motivate Skrypt into seeking more work in the musical arena and within a week after it's release Skrypt began showcases. Currently, doing shows and with an upcoming slot on a Lazy K (Murda Mami) mixtape Skryptrs Testimony has begun his rise to fame.
