Born on March 14, 1984 in Gary, Indiana, Clarence J. Underwood, 2200, never knew of the trials ahead of him. 2200 first started recording in 1999 but never released any of his tracks until the 2003 release of G.A.M.E. which was featured on a local compilation in Indianapolis. A short time after his music career came to a halt due to a love for the streets. During his hiatus he used the time constructively and did the best thing he knows how: let the paper bleed the pen.
In 2013 2200 suffered through the loss of a child which gave him a new breath and passion for the art of self-expression. His latest single Revelations 22, under Record Union, is available on Jay Z’s Tidal. His last shows to date were the Best of the Best Dance Off, Best of the Midwest, and Chicago Giants. He also headlined for the Indiana Black Expo.
That same year 2200 signed a television production deal to have his own reality show on a major network. He’s currently working on the upcoming album S.A.D.E. which is an acronym for “Something All Devils Envy”; release is slated for 2015/2016. In the words of 2200 there are “No emotions from a pharaoh, only music coursing through his veins.”
