When DMX, made his mark in 1997, it was Dame Grease aggressive sound that provided the rapper with a podium to dominate the rap industry to the tunes of platinum records . Before becoming a stable on every mixtape, The LOX relied on the sounds of Grease in order to acquire the street buzz that landed them their deal on Bad Boy Records in 1996. Fellow Bad Boy Mase sought out Grease’s distinctive sound and gave him the opportunity to provide production on Mase’s triple platinum Harlem World. This led to Grease’s work as the primary producer on DMX’s classic debut It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, where Grease helped the Ruff Ryders mold both their image and their sound into what would become one of the most well-known Hip Hop crews. During this time Grease chose to create his own Vacant Lot production company.

In 2001 Grease made the accession from producer to composer by providing the score for the Steven Segal/DMX blockbuster Exit Wounds. In addition to his work on the film, Dame Grease also reunited with DMX on the soundtrack for X’s top-ten hit “Ain’t No Sunshine”, an updated, yet much darker remake to the Bill Withers 1972 classic of the same name. Grease continued his work as a composer in on the 2003 box-office hit Cradle 2 the Grave, starring Jet Li, DMX, Gabrielle Union, and Anthony Anderson, as well as 2004’s Never Die Alone.

Coming Back into the game hard DMX is considered by many to be one of the greatest heavyweight rappers to still do it . Back in July Grease revealed to HipHop Dx that he's currently working on DMX's album, but it was announced recently DMX has appointed Grease to executive produce his next LP. as told to Hip Hop Dx Grease says: “First and foremost, I’m pretty sure the world know about it,” said Dame, who produced the bulk of X’s debut It’s Dark and Hell is Hot. “[DMX] came home two days ago, we’re working on a brand new album with [him] right now. Was in the studio last night, we back in the studio tonight. We’re working on a brand new album, good energy, the songs is phenomenal. It’s actually a good dose of what we need in Hip Hop right now.”. up to sate album finidhed

Grease is multi-tasking, currently he released 75 tracks for lease on soundcloud and continues to put his Signature on every Wave Mixtape Release on datpiff. Aside from releasing a slew of mixtapes Grease recently put his gritty beats on Jae Millz & Lil Waynes song "Forever Winning" and colloborated with the white girl Mob Kreayshawn on the track "Rum & Coke. In preparation for 2012 Grease is not only executive producing DMX LP but also putting out his own LP Martial Law with a soon to be released date.

Redefining the traditional definition of Harlem Renaissance Dame Grease cutting edge style marks him the musics brand ambassador.

New Ad Supporting Anti-Piracy Legislation PDF Print E-mail

The National Music Publishers' Association has joined with other industries united against content theft to release an ad highlighting the urgent need for Congressional passage of the PROTECT IP Act (S. 968) and the Stop Online Piracy Act ("SOPA", H.R. 3261). These bills will support U.S. jobs by protecting American intellectual property rights online from criminal offshore websites trafficking pirated and counterfeit products to U.S. consumers.

Without sufficient intellectual property rights enforcement online, U.S. industries and millions of talented people in essential sectors are threatened by these sites, which operate out of reach of U.S. laws and U.S. law enforcement.

"The U.S. copyright industries, including the music publishing and songwriting community, continue to generate jobs and economic growth, accounting for nearly 10 percent of all private sector jobs in 2010*," said NMPA President and CEO David Israelite. "But that productivity is threatened more and more by digital theft. Making sure copyrights are enforced in the digital world as they are in the physical world will mean the difference between sustaining these jobs and seeing them disappear. These bipartisan bills offer a targeted, reasonable approach to this problem and they should be passed."

A broad coalition including Democrats and Republicans, 43 State Attorneys General, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the AFL-CIO, law enforcement, firefighters, consumer protection groups, unions and hundreds of corporations and small businessessupport legislation to combat rogue websites.
