NINE, who’s civil name is D. Keyes, started his career in the late 80s. That time this NY-emcee was joined together with well-known DJ Funkmaster Flex in a group called “The Masters of Funk” (released among others tracks as “go bang”, “six million ways to die”). This is the time when he still called himself “Nine Double M”, what he later on shortened to “9 Double M” and finally to simply “Nine”. The reason for this name is obvious as he was born on 9.9.1969, his shoe size is 9 and guess his lucky number?.... I think you get it!
Now, NINE, as he’s known nowadays, dropped his 1st record under this name in 1993/94 with his smashin’ single “whutcha want” and then had many other single and album releases within the next decade (see more here).
The 1st piece is a record that was not on any label and dropped in 1996. it brings the 2 awesome tracks “when the shit hits the fan” and “ghetto near you”. Raw, dark and slow beatz with Nine’s typically ruff voice over them, that’s how I’m luvin’ it!
