Rapper SPM Career
SPM began rapping in the church as a gospel rap artiste. At some point, he felt that he didn’t fit into the gospel world, so he took his rap talent to another level and dimension.
In 1994, he started all out as SPM. He rapped and recorded a couple of singles. The next year, he co-founded a record label known as Dope House Records, which he co-founded with his brother, Arth, your Jnr. And his friend Jose Antonio Garza from Texas.
He released his debut album titled, ‘Hillwood’ in 1995. He spent two years promoting the album before he started recording his second album in 1997. The following year, 1998, he released his second album, ‘Hustle Town’. His second album became a hit when it was released.
He released his third album on December 22, 1998, titled, ‘Power Moves: The Table. This album got lots of attention. The next year, he also released his fourth album, ‘The 3rd Wish: To Rock The World’. The lead single in the album, ‘High So High’ got into the Billboard Hot Rap Tracks chart and claimed the 50th spot.
2000 his record label and Universal Music Group signed a joint venture. This earned him $500,000 in advance and national distribution. During his joint venture with Universal, three of his albums were released. These albums were Time Is Money and The Purity Album in 2000 and Never Change in 2001.
Unfortunately, his work with Universal didn’t receive mainstream attention or much accolades. However, during his stay in prison, Dope House released two new albums, which he recorded while behind bars. The Devil’s Strike (2006) was at number 46 on the Billboard 200.
On September 30, 2014, his album titled, ‘The Son Of Norma’ was released.
The case of SPM can be explained as one in which his background significantly impacts his lifestyle, from selling crack as a young star to ending up behind bars. He lacked the parental care and guidance that every young child needs, so he followed the wrong path in life. He was a talented artist who aspired to make it in the music business since he performed poorly at school.
He lacked good guidance on managing fame and the challenges that come with it, resulting in him assaulting young girls and committing other crimes that were against the law. On different occasions, it was recorded that he attacked different underaged girls whom he should have, on the other way, acted like an elder brother to guide and protect. He mismanaged his chances of being famous and used that influence negatively.
Fame is meant to be used to be a positive influence on society, especially the fans of whoever the public figure is. MSPM’s history and story should be a story that every young man who wishes to succeed in his career needs to be told about to desist from going through the same wrong route that he took. And also, parents must own up to their responsibility to raise their kid’s rights to prevent them from committing crimes and being a menace to society when they are all grown. Unfortunately, SPM would have been an aged man by his release date. A couple of famous artists also mismanaged their game and are currently serving their sentence behind bars.
