b. LeBaron Frost, Alexandria, Virginia, USA. An alternative to the rural languor of fellow Atlanta, Georgia-based rappers Arrested Development or Gumbo, Snoman’s ruse is to retreat to the East Side old school artistry of the pioneering hip-hop artists and B-Boys. He began writing his first poetry at the age of nine, and was subsequently inspired by the imported sounds of Run DMC. Following an appearance on the Conquest Of A Nation compilation he made his personal bow with the single, ‘Money’. Backed by DJ Nabs, Snoman created a smooth, flowing blend of hip-hop with intelligent, often introspective rhymes: ‘It’s very important to me that I write good, strong lyrics especially since I found it hard to express myself when I was growing up’.
