Major Players EP
Event was a West-coast Hip-Hop artist who was active in the underground music scene from 2004-2007. Discovered by JL Management and Harold 'Scrap' Freddie (Co-Producer of 2Pac's 'Only God Can Judge Me'). In 2006 he released a 5 track demo which was almost entirely produced by Harold 'Scrap' Freddie and featured classics like 'Pawnshop' and 'Gorilla Pimpin' which later on proved to have a inspirational impact on the Hip-Hop community do to the fact that many of the ideas on the 'Major Players EP' that came from Event and his Producer Scrap began to grasp the attention of underground and mainstream artists in the Rap game which resulted in the unlawful use of theese concepts. In late 2006, Event released 'Major Players: The Mixtape Vol. 1' which featured Sly Boogy on the single titled 'Major Players' as well as 'Fire it up'. The mixtape also featured songs by artists such as Crooked I, Pharrell Williams, Styles P, I.G.T., Tragedy Kadafi, Termanology, M1, G. Malone, DC, Young Hoggs, Tom Gist, Hasan and Event himself and many more. Althogh Event is new to the Rap game, his fanbase has been growing rapidly thru the U.S. and beyond, reaching out to Canada, Europe and Japan. Between 2001 and 2004 Event had recorded and released over 3 albums worth of material under different names and only became 'Event' when he signed a management agreement with JL Management in 2005 and started working with one of Tupac Shakur's Producers Harold 'Scrap' Fretty who Co-Produced 'Only God Can Judge Me' from 2pac's Album 'All Eye'z On Me'. In 2006 Event began to negotiate a recording contract with an independent record label but later on decided that the deal wasn't in his best interest and went his own way to pursue better opportunities.
