There seems to be a connection between rap music and crime. You have one rapper, namely C-Bo facing prosecution from the police authorities. You have another one, Crunchy Black facing the same kind of music. Of course, music is always divine and serene. It could be because of the upbringing of such music stars or the bad company they live in their part of the world.
Born on 20 August 1974, Darnell Carlton, better known by his stage name, Crunchy Black is an American rapper and Hype man. This might be a new term for many. A Hype man is a person who supports the primary rappers when they perform on the stage. Rapping involves continuous recitation of the words without a break. Sometimes, the principal rappers can feel tired and hence pause to take a breath. The Hype man can fill in the gap with his continuous recitation. He can also egg the crowd on with his unique mannerisms. Crunchy Black is a bit of both, a rapper as well as a Hype man.
Starting his career at a very young age of 19 years, Crunchy Black was an important member of the Oscar winning rap group ‘Three 6 Mafia’. In fact, he was amongst its founder members. He left the group after 13 years in 2006 to go solo. This move caused a great degree of dissent in some members of the group. There were some monetary issues as well. A combination of all these factors led to an attack on Crunchy Black on 01 May 2012 when some people shot him in the face and leg. However, he was fortunate to survive the murder attempt and was back on his feet within a few days.
Coming back to the music, his group, Three 6 Mafia had won the Academy Award for the best original Song, Its Hard out Here for a Pimp. As a group, they were very popular with many of their numbers becoming chart busters.
On branching out from the group, he released his solo album, On My Own in 2006. Other albums such as ‘From me to you’ etc followed very soon. Most of the songs made the top of the Billboard Top Rap Albums charts.
In 2013, Crunchy Black joined the group Da Mafia 6ix, a reincarnation of the Three 6 Mafia with DJ Paul, Koopsta Knicca and Gangsta Boo.
He had his brush with the law many times because of domestic violence issues, possession of cocaine, and three felony warrants. However, as on date, he is a free man.
