If you're looking for an artist that has substance & soul to their music then look no further that Krusaphixxx.When listening to this emcee you will be able to close your eyes and go on a musical journey of fun, pain, happiness and excitement!!
Krusaphixxx was born Jeremy Roberts in Mississippi to Hazel Roberts. At the age of 2, Ms. Roberts, moved herself and young Kru to Memphis, Tn. There they experience many hardships and road blocks; to escape most of the violence and havoc in the hood Kru turned to rapping. Kru’s been rapping since age 13. Kru released his first solo project at the tender age of 15 entitled “Trapped” under the guidance of a man he prefers not to name.
At age 19 Kru was signed to a regional deal with Priority Records which fell through on contract disputes. Kru also was signed to Infinity Records a subsidiary of Capitol Records in 2000. That deal didn’t last as of they kept Kru on the self for two years and both sides felt it was best to part ways. So Kru along with his brother Treflon and close friend Tony Snow started their own label (P.L.U.T.O. Entertainment/P-9 ENT.) in 2002 after being sold so many dreams, so many dreams!!!
Since then Kru and his brothers Da Delta Boy Click (D.B.C.) along with the rest of the P.L.U.T.O.A.P.E.S. have been trying to get it in. Kru has performed in many concerts and worked with many local, underground and major artists, but his goals far exceed those accomplishments. He wants to be one of the most successful label owners and artist in music history. Krusaphixxx was named by Robert Kidd aka BK Juice when they were touring Mississippi together. Krusaphixxx was the perfect name because the truth in his lyrics made people want to crucify him. So, BK told him he was the Jesus Christ of Rap. Now, the way his music and lyrics touch people, the name is fitting.
Krusaphixxx performs live all over Mississippi, Tennessee, Kansas, and the entire DIRTY SOUTH! "Every show is special to me,” says Kru, "the fans are the reason I do what I do.” Nothing feels better than interacting with true fans from the stage."
Kru’s biggest influences are Scarface, The Ghetto Boys, 8 Ball and MJG, Beanie Seagal, Jay Z, Jadakiss, Mc Ren, & U.G.K.
