Biography:

My name is Demeturis Jenkins aka Big-D, Born Feb 2, 1991 in Ahoskie NC. I got my first start in rapping in the sixth grade recording on tapes with my friends. In 2006 to 2007, we made a move from that onto a cheap program called acid pro in which we also used a very cheap performance microphone. As we progressed, we began to do very low budget and scarcely populated shows due to the lack of good management. In 2007, due to failing group known as the Block Boys, The group fell apart do to people believing that they were better than the group itself. After a two month Murph and I came back on the scene with a new manager name Joel redd aka Reddspark, who gave us a better brake. He started putting shows together, and adding our song to many websites, then we got up with James Boone aka JB, were we went to record in an official studio. After recording he was impressed with our skills he wanted to start an indie record label. James and Joel join up with both skills, Joel as a manager and James a producer, they form Naapalm Records, an indie label we are sign to. Now we can do what we do best, that’s make good music. Demetrius Jenkins
Young Murph aka Antonio Murphy,19yrs old born 6/ 20/1989.Me growing up listening to rap was a must. I grew up in Murfreesboro Nc. I graduated from Hertford county high school located in Ahoskie Nc. In my early age in child hood I was always in trouble, I stayed in sum beef. When I was 15 I got lock up and did a year in jail for stealing. while lock up I started writing rhymes to keep myself from going crazy. As I kept writing I felt I was writing a story of my life and stuff I did or how life could be. Then when I was released from jail I got back in school and started selling drugs and I was known for spitting a sixteen anytime. I would go up against other rappers at the lunch table for like five dollars and out rap them because I was the hottest . Then one day I was walking my girl to the bus after school a couple of guys walked up to me and ask did I want to record with them. They went by the name Block Boyz. I joined the group and from there we got a manager that was stealing money from us and a lot of stuff went down so me and another artist by the name of Big-d departed from the group and started our on thing under Reddspark Management Owned by Joel Redd. Fare as now we doing our thing continued to grind staying humble and ripping for Reddspark . “As they say a man that work” eats, so in my mind I work hard each day………and after a few months on the grind, we got a call from our manager and this guy name James Boone. He wanted us to come in the studio to record. So we did and we blew the mic hot. And after that James n Joel got together and join forces to form a music label. The label name is Naapalm Records… were me and big d is signed to now we are ready to bust the music business wide open…… Antonio Murphy
