In the past 5 years, Chris Webby has released 10 full length projects, 8 of which were given away completely for free. All of his releases have been known to cause a big splash. He was the first artist to ever crash the server at the largest online mixtape site, Datpiff.com (he was also the second to do it). Webby's debut EP in 2012, "There Goes The Neighborhood," not only topped the iTunes Hip-Hop charts within 24 hours of its release, but also boasted the number one spot on the Billboard Heatseeker chart. His most recent release, the mixtape The Check Up, reached platinum download status within the first week of release on one site alone. The numbers speak for themselves. Webby's body of work has built him a large and notoriously loyal fan base. His online presence is massive. His widespread fan base not only continuously proves their ferocity online, but through their support of his live shows, resulting 5 of his own nationwide tours. He has had sold out shows at famous venues from Webster Hall in New York to The Troubadour in LA.
Bizarre
Bizarre
Born: July 5, 1976, Detroit, Michigan

Musician and actor. American rapper, best known for his work with Detroit-based hip hop group D12.

Bizarre released his first EP titled as Attack of the Weirdos in 1997. The album features Eminem, Kon Artis, and more. For a while, he did not practice his solo career, rather performing more often with his rap group, D12. Bizarre was present for D12's first EP in 1996 titled The Underground EP.

Bizarre was featured on D12's first studio album in 2001 titled Devil's Night. Bizarre continued to perform alongside D12 without practicing his solo career, not until after the release of D12's second album D12 World in 2004. Bizarre then released his first official studio album in 2005 titled as Hannicap Circus. He had also worked with rappers Kuniva, Swift, Proof, Kon Artis, and Eminem in D12. He was also featured in Eminem's compilation album Eminem Presents: The Re-Up, on a track called "Murder" that features Kuniva, released in December 5, 2006. But following the death of rapper Proof, D12 became inactive for some time. The album Eminem Presents: The Re-Up brought together all of Eminem's fellow rappers including all of D12 except for Proof.

In 2007, Bizarre released his second studio album called Blue Cheese & Coney Island. In 2008 Bizarre was with D12 to record their first official mixtape titled Return of the Dozen, and returned to do a mixtape sequel in 2011 called Return of the Dozen Vol. 2.

In 2010, Bizarre released his third studio album titled Friday Night at St. Andrews. The album is more reality-based on actual situations throughout Bizarre's early life and career, thus the album is more conscious than his previous releases. The album features guest appearances from Tech N9ne, Yelawolf, Kuniva, and more.

Bizarre along with King Gordy have formed a hip hop duo called The Davidians. The Davidians were featured on Esham's mixtape The Butcher Shop. The duo is currently seeking for a record label.

Bizarre was featured in Snowgoons's music video with Swifty McVay, King Gordy, Sean Strange and Meth Mouth.

In 2010, Bizarre was featured on the single "Be a Legend" with Russian hip-hop group Red Family MC'z.

In 2011, Bizarre was featured on the track "Shock Em" with underground rap group Bankrupt Records for the album Double Vision.

In 2012, Bizarre released his fourth mixtape, This Guy's a Weirdo, which includes a song entitled "Justin Bieber" featuring King Gordy. In the song, Bizarre fantasizes about raping and murdering Canadian singer Justin Bieber.

In 2014, he released a song called "Pray For Me" for his upcoming album. In an interview with Peter Czymbor on WXBR in February 2014, Bizarre confirmed a new D12 album will be released sometime in 2014. He also confirmed his next album Eleven would be released in April 2014.
