Color One is far from a newcomer. Rising through the ranks on Chicago's westside, he started making a name for himself in the mid-'90s as the founder and organizer of the M.A.T.S crew. Throughout the early 2000s, M.A.T.S members included platinum artist Twista, Do or Die, Psycho Drama, and Triple Darkness - just to name a few.
Not only was Color One perfecting his game as a talented emcee, but he was also setting the record straight as a bonafide producer. Over the years he's produced for Twista and written songs with Johnny P and the platinum Crucial Conflict.
Despite his fruitful luck with music, it wasn't always easy as his surroundings garnered some uphill battles. Violence, drugs, and gangs are sadly constant where he came from and he doesn't shy away from that in his music. Often he finds himself between the streets and the studio trying to make it all work. In the end, he just wants to tell his story...holding nothing back from his audience. Which is why he always brings fire to the table, like with his latest release, "She Said."
“She Said” starts strong and only gets better with each passing second. The way Color One and John Blu’s deliveries play off one another is straight fire and only enhances the beats laid out before them. With T.R.U. Chicago playerism, lyrical content, and fly instrumental..“She Said,” 🔥
