Spose
Spose
26-year-old producer and emcee Spose, hailing from Wells, Maine USA, has been making music since age 9 and rhyming since 1999 when he was 14. Since the release of his debut album "Preposterously Dank" in 2008 on his own imprint, Spose has seen his musical endeavors reach a new plateau.
He was named Maine's "Best HipHop Act" for both 2008 and 2009 at the WePushButtons Awards and also named "Best Hiphop Act" in the Portland Phoenix's 2010 Best Music Poll. In 2009, he released a mixtape with fellow emcee Cam Groves entitled "We Smoked It All." A track off that mixtape, produced by Spose himself, "I'm Awesome" received regional radio play in New England which garnered Spose his first major label recording contract with Universal Republic Records. The single was released in March 2009 nationally and would eventually go gold after selling over 500,000 digital copies in just a few months. Spose used the opportunity to build his own company, the Preposterously Dank Entertainment label based out of Wells, Maine. Artists signed to his imprint include himself, Spose, as well as the aforementioned emcee Cam Groves, hip-hop trio Educated Advocates, and the space-funk-sex-r'n'b of Doctor Astronaut. In 2010, Spose released both "In Sessions," the debut album from Educated Advocates, as well as his own indie album "Happy Medium."

Spose has since left Universal and released his independent album "The Audacity!" - which peaked at #6 on the iTunes hiphop albums chart.

Spose has performed with international acts such as Drake, J. Cole, B.o.B., Wiz Khalifa, Ke$ha, Weezer, Stone Temple Pilots, Cage the Elephant, Wiz Khalifa, Mike Posner, and Kardinal Offishal. He has also performed with the cream of the underground hip-hop crop: 7L & Esoteric, Brother Ali, Sean Price, Ill Bill, Kool Keith, Mac Lethal & more.

Spose recently launched his website label's web site at http://www.pdank.com/ as well as an online store through Maine-based indie record chain Bull Moose Music called Spose*Mart at http://www.bullmoose.com/.
