Mr. Green is a hip-hop artist, producer and DJ from Highland Park, New Jersey. He's one of few able to achieve success and acclaim while maintaining true label independence and artistic freedom. He is known for combining unusual and unexpected sounds in his productions, from ancient religious music to jazz, blues, rock, funk, reggae, soul, and everything in between.

 

Mr. Green has worked regularly with VICE Media for years releasing episodes of his Live from the Streets show (LFTS), created in 2011 in Philadelphia by Green and his friend Sam Lipman-Stern. With over 10 million cumulative views to date, LFTS is an inspirational music show where he travels across the globe making music from sounds found in the world around him, or "music made out of life itself" as Green likes to say. Past LFTS guests include Ol' Dirty Bastard, ASAP Ferg, KRS One, Sean Price, and many more. The latest season of LFTS and VICE also created an ad for LG cell phones that got over 1 million views online and on the VICELAND TV network.

 

His live concerts include a unique mix of scratching, DJing his original beats, and rapping. He likes to interact with the crowd as much as possible and bring local artists on stage. He's performed at festivals like Rocksteady (NYC), Soundset (Minnesota), Warp Tour (USA), Hip Hop Kemp (Czech Republic), Splash Festival (Germany), Royal Arena (Switzerland), Hip Hop Al Parque (Colombia), and more.

 

Currently, Mr. Green is living in Brooklyn gearing up his biggest season of LFTS yet. He is also continuously churning out beats for his solo projects and other underground and major artists' albums. He is finishing up an E.P. with Westside Gunn from Griselda/Shady Records and an instrumental project with DJ Kool Herc, the man who invented hip-hop.
