Raw Product has always known that he wanted to be an artist. Music has been his life. Born and raised in Harvey, Illinois, and living in a three bedroom house with his parents and three sisters, he can remember singing to his parents in Spanish. Raw P has always had a large collection of mostly every genre of music. As a child, he would record himself trying to rap on the cassette recorder. His family would tell him that he was crazy, and assumed that he was talking to himself. To this day, if his mother catches him practicing, she asks 'Are you Crazy?' Raw Product listened to the cassettes of the Fat Boyz, Whoudini, LL Cool J, Run DMC, Ice T, and Rhyme Syndicate. Rapping to their tracks he would record himself. Moving up to John Gordon Middle School, Raw Product became good friends with Willie Walton, Quentin Moore, and Brian Harrison. Brian was the beat box maker, while Quentin, Willie, and Raw Product were the free-style-trio. In seventh grade for career day, it was known that Raw P wanted to be a rapper. Rapping one of Sweet Tee's verses for the class, they had never saw a Hispanic try to rap. Some of the class laughed, but others clapped, while believing that it was a verse he had made up on his own. In High School, while attending Bremen, the young Raw Product would freestyle at house parties. He could remember swearing a lot in the ciphers with his friends. After Graduation, Raw P met a new friend Rick (Wease). Wease and Raw P would battle each other all the time. Wease introduced Raw P to a group called MaddCore. The group was interested in having him join. MaddCore was not focused on the main goal of success, so nothing ever became of that. Being angry at the world, Raw P started to actually write down all the thoughts being released in anger. A new friend, Ed (Lamart), had come into the picture helping him focus on music, teaching him the format and helping him understand beats, bars and measures along with some critical aspects on the business side of music. After looking into many different studios in the Chicago land area, he decided to make a demo album with Alien Sound Studios. Money was tough, and he knew he couldn't afford it on his own. Raw P had decided to ask a friend who was also involved with music to do the demo album with him, therefore splitting the cost. While working on the demo, he had been networking to meet as many people that he could to get involved. Working at different home studios, he has recorded numerous songs to be used on his first solo album - Raw Product / Outta Nowhere. Raw Product has recently performed on the Royce Glamour show for the first time. 'The rap industry is in for trouble...watch out, I'm loose now', he states. After hearing his lyrics, which he names 'heart ink,' you will then understand why he was nick-named Raw Product. He speaks from his heart. 'I will never hold anything back from anyone; everything is put out in front. I'll always be proud to say the truth about myself. Had I not gone through all the good and bad choices in my life, I wouldn't be here today. Sincerely - Raw P'.
