Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Hardcore Emcee Continental Five is Working His Grind and Creating His Own Lane. Catch His New Single "Stress" on the Newest Episode of South Park

Born and Raised in South Jamaica Queens, NY Michael Francis A.K.A Continental Five is the oldest of two boys with dreams of being something. Unfortunately, Southside Jamaica Queens isn't always open to fulfilling the dreams of its residents. Being so close that they were often mistaken for brothers, Michael looked to his older cousin; 50 Cent as a role model. Michael stayed close to his cousin, and learned so much by the moves he made. One move would end up changing his life from that day forward. Michael never really gave much thought to becoming an entertainer, until the day 50 came home wearing jewelry that cost more than the house he lived in with his family.
So what happens when you think you can’t make it, but your cousin goes out and becomes the most relevant human being in the past decade?

You get your act together and you begin to make your dream a reality.

Continental Five began his grind in the NYC underground hip-hop scene under the moniker Two five, which was a nickname given to him in jest by Tony YaYo. Slowly, he built a name and reputation for himself with his gritty style of freestyle rap. In early 2007 DJ Whiteowl decided to reach out to the rapper in hopes that he would host a mixtape for him. Continental Five was consistently gaining momentum in the underground scene so DJ Whiteowl thought he would be a good fit for his series of mixtapes. The two put out 5 successful mixtapes that started expanded his growing underground following and landed him a nomination at the Justo mixtape awards. Together they have sold and distributed over 70,000 CD’s.
