Formerly known as Malick Da 1da, BEN MALICK is an Underground Real Hip-hop Producer/Emcee, from and located in Nkolbisson neighborhood, Yaoundé city, Cameroon, Africa. He’s been in the Hip hop for 16 years and has started making beats for 13 years. He’s been seriously influenced as Emcee as Producer by legends like RAKIM, NAS, SEAN PRICE (RIP), DJ PREMIER, 9th WONDER, NOTTZ, KHRYSIS. For gold from craft, he messes with FL Studio 8 (when sampling) and 9 (when using synths) alongside with a MIDI controller drum pad. As Founder/President/CEO of his own Organization/Label/Company called HEARTZ & SOULZ which targets to provide services supporting as local as overseas low-budget indie Hip hop artists, he works the most with US Emcees but also with some Emcees from Africa, Europe, Oceania and Asia though. He’s definitely one of the rare African-based prolific music makers successfully dealing with US and the rest of the world, getting some names on his works except himself, as Big Shug, Shadowstar Boxer, Access Immortal, Prossess, The Kid Hater, Emf Black, Prince Newkirk, The Admiral, The Absouljah, Rev Sum1 Els, Stanza of the ‘’Spread The Sickness’’ crew and many more. He definitely struggles for the Real Hip hop everlasting existence.
