I live hard, fight hard, love hard, and can’t give up,” are words hip-hop star Candyman 187 lives by. Born in the 80s, Candyman was raised in Los Angeles with frequent trips to visit family in New York and D.C. A leading music industry influencer, Candyman 187’s music exudes the perfect blend of West Coast bravado and East Coast lyricism.

Candyman has an ability to bring different types of people together whether it is by race, religion, secksual orientation or political affiliation. His lyrics bring a duality to Hip-Hop that goes unrivaled. With a team of artists, musicians and producers behind him by the name of The Havenotz, which believes in loyalty, family, and changing the world, Candyman 187 is set to bring a new era to Hip-Hop.

His lyrics bring a duality to Hip-Hop that goes unrivaled. The balance of the dark truths of street life and powerful revolutionary ideals blend effortlessly. These unmatched lyrical verses coincide with the classic Hip-Hop beats that lay the ground work for impressive live guitars, bass, drums, violins and keys. The result is an album that is unquestionably Hip-Hop with a strong crossover appeal.

Candyman 187’s music reflects his experience as a child raised amongst the chaos of “hood” politics. Starting his career at such a young age, the time he spent in studios and around industry moguls was instrumental in shaping his career. He was doubted as an aspiring artist, but whether through song or conversation, you can’t help but be drawn to his charisma and message. A truly versatile artist, he is always working to find new sounds to reach his fans.

He proves to be an unstoppable force even before his first major release. Having won Album of the Year and Artist of the Year at the Los Angeles Music Awards, the Havenotz prove that old school Hip-Hop still has a strong force in the Hip-Hop industry.

His first street single "Show Em All" (produced by Candyman 187 & The Havenotz and Skip Saylor), tells the story of the struggle and hustle he has been through to get where he is today. From street life to the music industry hardships, "Show Em All" is the first song off his upcoming project, due Fall 2011.

The self-entitled album “Candyman 187 and The Havenotz” has caught the attention of everyone who has heard it. It has secured endorsement deals by companies like Carvin Guitars & Amps as well as others. The album’s progress has been documented in magazines such as Music Connection.
