    1The Definition of an Ese [2007]


    As a product of the early rap years Kilo was given the name "Down" by his homies for being just that "down". Born in Oxnard, Ca as Juan Martinez he grew up in a poor family who worked long hours merely to survive. It didn't take long for young Down to realize he wanted to change the dynamic. After hearing the true life stories told in rap lyrics by NWA, Down started rapping his stories at age 13. He was fascinated with the art of rhyming that made it possible for him to encompass fragments of his life into stories an entire Latino culture could understand because they also lived it. He rapped for the first time in his friend's homemade garage studio. That friend was Edward Rios later to be known as E-Dub, the acclaimed producer of "Pocos Pero Locos" radio show and CEO of Silent Giant Entertainment. What started as an underground beat jacking and freestyles turned into one of the most legendary albums on the streets ever- "California Cowboys". In it, Down featured fellow friend rappers Snoop Dogg, Daz Dillinger, Mc Ren and Sugar Free. The album, then released on Down's own label Kilo Gram Music Group, garnered him street credibility and the respect of his peers. Allowing him to work with many others like Cypress Hill, MC Eight, Kokane,and Tha East Sidaz. This year, Kilo Gram Music Group merged with Silent Giant Entertainment to launch what will be the next chapter of Down's career, the highly anticipated album "Definition of an Ese". The album, set to drop May 22, embraces the more mature side of Down. His first single "Lean Like A Cholo" is already in radio rotation across the country. Often compared to the Latin version of Eazy E, Down is a Hip Hop forefather who is still representing his stories from the streets but most of all is still "Down".
