Introduction The Crack Emcee was born in Los Angeles. His mother had a thing with Jazz legend Charlie Mingus (producing a sister). Crack served in the Navy before settling into the Punk scenes of Los Angeles and San Francisco. He went on to join the Beatnigs (1988) Consolidated (1992) Broun Fellinis (1995) and then started his own band, Little White Radio (1998). The Crack Emcee has also been releasing a series of critically acclaimed solo mix tapes - starting with 1995's Newt Hates Me - that have solidified his reputation. This output morphed into his solo album, the anti-war Rap's Creation (2002) which was nominated for Album Of The Year (in, both, Rolling Stone and the Village Voice) and that year's list of Hip Hop's Best Anti-War Songs. Crack is listed (twice) as `an artist dedicated to integrity in Donnell Alexander's memoir, Ghetto Celebrity, and is featured on the CD, Just Payin' The Rent: The Amoeba Music Compilation, Vol. II.

Favorite Music I like almost everybody, in every genre, but I'm picky about which are their quality tracks. I enjoy concept albums, though not many bands try to pull them off in this age of .mp3s.

If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying "poop deck"?

I wouldn't.
