Reef the Lost Cauze kicks off "OFFICIAL" at Lengendary Dobbs on Thurs. Nov. 8th 2012

Once regarded as Philadelphia Hip Hop’s “best kept secret,” Reef the Lost Cauze is no longer the best underground MC you’ve never heard of: he’s ready to shed the title once and for all and become a household name. The battle-tested MC is poised to have a breakthrough year: not by switching up his style or conforming to ready-made ideals of mainstream acceptability, but rather by staying true to the basic formula of raw rhymes and murderous beats. Reef stands as the new sound of Philadelphia. He carries with him the city’s long-standing tradition of musical history and innovation.

Reef The Lost Cauze is a Philadelphia emcee with his sights set on the top of the hip hop game. While some emcees are strictly studio and basic battle cats, Reef brings well-rounded talent to the table with formidable stage presence, skills of the pen and a ferocious freestyle ability. HIs latest offering, "Fight Music" features Jedi MInd Tricks front man Vinnie Paz, legendary street lyricist Kook G. Rap and more. Reef is geared up to hiit the road this fall in support of his collaborative project, "King & The Cauze" with King Magnetic. The project boasts features from Joell Ortiz, Saigon and more with production by Marco Polo, Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind and others.

Having spent a great deal of his childhood acting in plays and performing, Reef fell in love with Hip Hop at the age of eight and has been rhyming ever since. By the time he reached high school, Reef earned a reputation as a deadly battle emcee -- jumping in any and every cipher he came across. It was not until his acceptance to Philadelphia's University of the Arts with a film scholarship that he began to visualize a serious career on the mic. It's here that he began to hone his songwriting skills, and worked on perfecting his stage presence.

Having recently worked with mainstream artists, Gym Class Heroes, as well as underground hip hop's elite, Jedi Mind Tricks, and hip hop rising star, Termanology, Reef has demonstrated his chameleon-like ability to stand out on a wide array of tracks. He places a determined emphasis on balance with his songwriting and performance abilities.

"I love the rush of the crowd," explains Reef. "I love to be on stage and have a place full of strangers being amazed at what I'm saying. I'm much more at home and relaxed on stage performing my music."

Reef continues to incorporate his life and business experiences into his projects, and his range of expression will allow fans the opportunity to truly identify with him. As he grows in the world of entertainment, it is certain that Reef stands to become one of this year's breakthrough artists, en-route to solidifying his spot as hip hop's next superstar.
