He calls himself a "ghetto newscaster" and a big, big ladies man. At about 300 pounds. Boss Hogg's name is as unique as his appearance. He was born Robert Harper in South Central, Los Angeles27 years ago. He is the product of a single mother home.
"My mother was abused by my father and left on welfare. I had nowhere to turn but to a gangsta lifestyle because i grew up with a lot of confusion," Boss Hogg says. It's that confusion that inspires the critically acclaimed tunes that he produces today. Boss Hogg believes he would've ended up dead like so many young men he know, but rap music was his way out. Boss Hogg's first performance drew cheers from his classmates at 68th Street Elementary School in L.A. The positive experience has propelled him to where he is today.
Boss Hogg and Casanova met and instantly clicked due to their common goals and determination. They recruited Twisted (rapper) and Shorty Mac (vocalist) and labeled themselves Da Suspectz. The Lady Suspectz (dancers) joined them on stage. The group won the 1st place prize during their first performance at San Bernardino's Sturges Theater. Boss Hogg and Casanova started Suspectz Records and www.suspectzrecords.com in 2002 instead of trying to get a record label to sign them. Two of the groups's songs "early in the Morning" and "Game" became big hits on California radio stations KGGI 99.1 and KUCR 88.3 and are featured on a compilation cd entitled "Platinum Plus" whcih is being distributed in Ohio record stores and at www.cdbaby.com/cd/Ironfist1.
