Rap is something you do…Hip Hop is something you live. – KRS One
“MAD Squablz” was born in December of 1996 in Philadelphia, Pa. A very humble young artist when it comes to his talents. Mad Squablz preferred to play the background – never wanting to draw attention to himself. No one knew he had such a gift except him. It wasn’t until his Grandfather passed away from Cancer that Mad Squablz decided to let his parents know of this talent. After hearing him sing at the age of 9 the flood gates were opened. His love for singing birthed his passion for music production which eventually birthed his life’s passion for Hip Hop.
The 2016 Philly Hip Hop Lyricist of the Year “MAD Squablz” is in position to move mountains in 2017 as the new young fresh face of vintage Hip Hop. The 20 year old West Chester University student has been called, “a young lyrical genius” a “Hip Hop Savior” and “the kid who will make Hip Hop the genre of choice again”.
By the end of 2016, Squablz had viral videos on the internet exceeding 1 million views, he was one of TeamBackPack’s 2016 Mission Underground favorites and even tipped the scales with his EP “Art of BoomBap – Generation Next” coming in at TeamBackPack’s #7 Album of the Year. The miraculous thing about being #7, the Album was released on 12/20/16 – meaning it beat out thousands of other albums for the spot with only being released for 10 days. Squablz relationship with TeamBackPack catapulted last year when he entered their contest to find three 2016 Mission Underground Champions (a global Hip Hop show-of-talents that screened well over 6000+ hip hop contest entries from all over the world). By the end of the auditions, Squablz alongside two other underground artists beat out their competition and received the very prestigious 2016 underground award. Additionally, this experience included numerous invites to YouTube Space to record collaborative music videos projects.
