Hailing from the brutal streets of Detroit, producer, lyricist, and storyteller, Esham, rose to legendary status at the young age of 15 when his debut album "Boomin Words From Hell" sold over 100K copies solely by word-of-mouth.
The infamous and highly coveted "red tape," details the perils of being young and black in a city ravaged by drugs and violence – and Esham's wavering faith.
 "I'm not an atheist.
But what has God done for me?
Oh, he let me grow up in the motherfuckin' ghetto."
This spiritual theme became the foundation for the Wicket Shit. Esham's music broke all the rules. Scathing with religious, sexual, and political commentary, he blurred the lines of right and wrong and good versus evil. He blended samples from every genre; with live instruments and beats he often made himself. And he released his music on his own label – Reel Life Productions (RLP). Founded by Esham and brother James, RLP is one of the earliest examples of independent hip-hop success.
With over 55+ solo and group projects under his belt, his music has appeared on movie soundtracks as well as Billboard's Heetseekers, Top R&B/Hip-Hop, and Independent album charts. He has toured with Bone Thugs N Harmony, Ice-T, Vans Warped Tour, Insane Clown Posse, and Kool Keith.
Esham continues to reinvent his sound on "She Loves Me" and "She Loves Me Not" the next chapter in his legendary story.
