At the onset of 2006, Term caught his big break when legendary producer DJ Premier blessed him with one of his signature, scratchladen beats. “Watch How It Go Down” instantly became an underground classic and Termanology appeared on hip-hop’s international radar. The conscious hood anthem garnered the earnest MC tons of praise, landing him in The Source’s “Unsigned Hype” and XXL’s “Show and Prove” columns. Since then, he has quickly climbed the industry ranks with his “Hood Politics” mixtape series and continued collaborations with DJ Premier and other big name producers. Term’s hard work resulted in a joint venture deal with Brooklyn-based label Nature Sounds, which he signed in late 2007.
“Term has a unique desire for the culture as he touches on issues that I can relate to as a TRUE HIP-HOP HEAD. His flows are nice, and has creative subject matter that speaks for me, not every new MC comin’ up can do that.”
