X:144 and SPS constantly takes listeners on journeys of self-discovery and
attempts to ignite a true passion for hip hop in the souls of music lovers
everywhere in the world. As a child of New York where hip was born, X:144
found his roots deeply planted within the art of storytelling at numerous
open mic nights and between pages of college-ruled notebook paper. SPS saw
tiny reflections of his influences like Jam Master Jay, The Colon Brothers
and Grand Master Flash burst through the tips of his 16 year old fingers at
a local youth center in Berlin Germany back in the 90's and now has finely
tuned his craft in turntablism where he has created his own special sound.
