He appeared on the scene in 2003 with his first joint project THE COMPOSITION. Now, Volume from SMC has just released his much anticipated solo debut LP THE DEFINITION. This album does just that it defines his life and what he does on a daily basis to survive in this concrete jungle. With artists like Killah Priest, Prodical Son, Cappadonna, and other Wu-Tang affiliates floating through his studio to record, he has to represent. His style is a combination of East and West coast beats and lyrics meshed together with dope production. This perfect package he provides is, on point creative lyrics, the ability to produce smashing beats for singles, and industry sound recording. Not only does he start from scratch with every song but he finishes with meaningful topics. By recording others besides himself he has the experience to make it very far in this industry with his talent and sure determination. Volume has been busy not only working on THE DEFINITION but the sophomore joint project by SMC THE ORIGINALS, BLIND's solo debut THE GRAY AREA (his brother, the other member of SMC), and countless other albums for everyone who ventures through his studio. SMC Records is holding it down for Volume's hometown of San Diego in all ways and providing respectable music with real life stories. THE DEFINITION is about Volume coming up in this game called Hip-Hop and how he and his boys deal with real life situations.
