Affluent Records Announce the November 4th release of Ohio rapper

Throwback’s Ballin’ Since Birth

 Super-talented Mid-West emcee, Throwback, who hails from Youngstown, Ohio, has finally arrived! His highly anticipated solo debut, Ballin’ Since Birth, which contains superb production from one of the industry’s hottest beat-smiths; KaneBeatz [Lil’ Wayne, Flo Rida], as well as several equally gifted up‘n’comers; BeatCatererz, The Shah Bros, and Ozone of Toxiq Entertainment, is due out November, 4th 2008 on Affluent Records.

As an introduction to Ballin’ Since Birth, Throwback recently dropped a pair of widely popular, future hit singles; ‘Trouble’ and ‘Grabbin’ On My Necklace,’ which have been managing to create a huge buzz, and completely raising the stakes for his soon-to-be released project. Other notable tracks include; ‘U In Da Club,’ ‘Dreamin,’ and ‘Get This Dough.’ Stellar high profile cameos are courtesy of the legendary Sadat X, of Brand Nubian fame, Warner Bros. recording artist, Wiz Khalifa, and Affluent label-mate, Kenny Ali.

Throwback, whose catchy moniker derives from his large collection of sports jerseys, is definitely primed and ready for the big leagues. “Ballin’ Since Birth means so many things to me, but the reason for the title is because I have been ballin’ since birth, hypothetically speaking,” the self-proclaimed “Jewish King” states, before expounding, “I create fun music, point blank simple. When people hear my music or see me perform, they just want to dance and have fun. That’s what I aim for.”
In closing, the man born Jon Tepper, who cites Bon Jovi, Poison’s Bret Michaels, Run DMC, Lupe Fiasco, and Kanye West, as some of his biggest musical influences, is sounding very optimistic, and rightfully so. “Put it this way, I have my foot in the door (now). My shear motivation, dedication, and hustling mentality has been and will continue to be the key to my success or the key to the industry’s door, if you will.” Concluding, “Dreams do come true, life is a hustle, so grind and sooner or later your time will come. Sleep’s for when you’re dead -- Keep ballin’ people!” With that being said, expect a whole lot more to come from Mr. Throwback himself, and on this coming presidential election-day make sure and pick up a copy of his brand new opus, Ballin’ Since Birth!
