Outcome was born in DuBois, Pennsylvania, April 26th in 1992.
As a young boy, Outcome was into normal activities such as playing football, rapping, making beats, and hanging out with friends, just as many of us did, but that was soon to change.
Music was always the way for Outcome to express his thoughts going through the harsh realities. In early years he spent his elementary days at Highland Elementary in southeast DuBois. Everything was unbalanced.
Going through obstacles in his life as a child, Outcome often turned to alternative rock as his dose of the music industry. "I listened to rock-rap bands like Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park on the radio and on MTV," says the rapper, but he never really found it fascinating to read their lyrics. "They were just too simple for me," says the young emcee.
He later found his true calling when he was 10 years old watching hip hop music videos on television. He first heard a 2Pac song come on, and that was where it all started. That of which turned his whole surroundings to be about rap music. However, the idea of rapping never even entered the picture until farther down the road.
"I soon turned to hip-hop music for inspiration. Some might say that was a bad thing, but it helped me out a lot in life,” says the rapper. It turns out that the same thing that had helped him, would also often be used against him.
He started writing and throwing down rhymes with his good friends JAE and Spitz, which later came together to form a group called NGA. Something came between the group and it quickly fell apart. “I was really the only one with the dedication to do something with music,” says Outcome.
In the summer of 2007, Outcome met up with DuBois rapper/ producer D~Ace. Ace helped him to reach new heights with his music and lyrics, pushing both of them to the limit. Outcome credits Ace with giving his music carreer the boost it needed, and giving him the opportunity to constantly improve and get some more professional expirience in the music industry.
Recently, Outcome has been working on projects on his own, and with ACE* and Spike Records. He is featured in the song Wait’n In Line from Ace’s newly released album ‘Isolation’. On December 14th, 2007, Outcome released his first CD ever... a mixtape with fellow rapper/ friend, Hybrid. His first ever solo album which will be titled 'The Truth Hurts' is expected to be released late 2008.
Keep your head up and keep an eye out for it. IT'S COMING!!!
