Jeff Spec f/ e.d.g.e. "It's So…" @edgarpenwork
The determination and focus applied to his chosen craft led Derrick Douglas to adopt the alias "e.d.g.e" (Eternal Determination Grants Everything). As an only child, e.d.g.e's interest in music was deeply rooted in his upbringing, taking influences from reggae, dancehall, funk, rock, and soul music. His high school years found him concentrating on creating verses in-between studies, which eventually became a full-time obsession. In 2002, e.d.g.e released his first solo mixtape, entitled "Captain Nasty's Introduction Vol.1", which would be the first of his 22 releases to date. In addition, e.d.g.e. has shared the stage with artists such as Common, Talib Kweli, Naughty By Nature, Theophilus London, 2 Live Crew, DJ Kool, The Roots, DJ Green Lantern, Raekwon, Zion I, Meek Mill, Mobb Deep and Diamond D. His metaphor-heavy wordplay style ranges from mixtape punchlines to in-depth and introspective songwriting.
