At the age of 12 Mesn put down the pen and picked up a can of spray paint wondering how he would ever make it in the rap game with so much competition. By the age of 16 Mesn had dropped out of high school, from the age of 14 to 16 Mesn was going back and forth to different high schools until he finally quit going.
At this point in his life Mesn had nothing other to do than work on his rap skills. All day, every day he continued to practice his rapping by freestyling constantly. When he was alone he felt nothing could stop him from accomplishing his goal.
Mesn’s good friend/producer/rap colleague Shayne Lutz (Rawst) pushed Mesn to take his skills to an actual studio due to the fact Mesn’s rap skills had sky rocketed within a year of practice. Rawst took Mesn to Gold Crown Recreational Center to record their first track as the group “Monsters Ink”.
Rawst and Mesn recorded a total of 4 songs as Monsters Ink, one which was done with Assassination Records from Houston Texas. 3 of the 4 were also featured on a mixtape in Detroit Michigan. With over 5,000 fans and friends, and rapid success on myspace you would think NOTHING could separate Monsters Ink but due to complications in the group Rawst and Mesn went their separate ways. Rawst and Mesn still keep in touch and still do music together. They are currently working on a new Monsters Ink project with 2 brand new members.
On Feb. 22, 2011 Mesn signed his first contract to be on his first record label “Chill –N- Make Skrill” records, which would soon become his new family. He signed as an artist with the rap group “303 Lyricals” containing 3 members Exakt, Herk, And Mesn. Herk was released from the group a year later to be replaced with Yung Seek due to complications between the group. Mesn then brought Yuno Ross, and Twizzle to form the groud D.B.N. (Denvers Bacc Now). They also released one of their artists from the group a year later due to complications.
On June 25, 2011 Mesn performed at his first live event at “The Wash”. D.B.N. headlined their first live performance thanks to the label owner Mar-Loc (Mario Rangel). On July 30, 2011 C.N.M.S. records was called back to The Wash to headline once again. This time Mesn’s group Monsters Ink was given the opportunity to headline.
As time went on the owner of the label went to jail for 7 months on Sep. 8, 2011. Mesn was given the opportunity to hold down the label which he worked hard at evrday till Mar-Loc was found innocent on April 4, 2012. When Mar-Loc got out of jail C.N.M.S. dropped their first label mixtape titled “C.N.M.S. Presents: The Mile High Mixtape” on 4/20/2012 (produced and hosted by Mesn) . After time went on things got complicated with everyone on the label and on May 27, 2012 Mesn was released from the label for business reasons.
Mesn still keeps in touch keeps in touch with everyone on the label. Mesn is now an unsigned artist looking to make and put out good music. He is currently working on his first solo mixtape titled “Will Rap For Food Vol.1” dropping August 16, 2012
