Verbs, the artist formerly known as Knowdaverbs, is bringing his own global village Hip-Hop style to the music scene with the September 18th release of The Groundwork Theory, a first new album since 2003s highly-acclaimed Unlocked. The album will release on 1280 Music Inc. with distribution via Infinity Distribution. Being described as an album with pounding beats, raw lyricism and vision, The Groundwork Theory will feature 12 songs from Verbs, the solo powerhouse Michael Boyer. Producer credits go to Ric Robbins (GRITS, Out of Eden), Crisis (GRITS), and Tony Stone (Lecrae) .
Verbs is authentic. From his flow to his heart, its undeniable, says TobyMac. He understands his gift and knows just why he has it.
Signed to Gotee Records in 1998, Verbs released three albums with the label including 1998s The Syllabus, 2000s Action Figure, and 2003s Unlocked. Verbs received two Dove Award nods in 2000 for both Hip-Hop/Rap/Dance Song Of The Year and Hip-Hop/Rap/Dance Album Of The Year. In 2003, the demand for Verbs music was so high that two of his songs from Unlocked hit #1 on the rhythmic charts before the album was released.
Verbs has made the trip to South Africa where he acted as an ambassador for high school assembly programs. He also had the opportunity to perform on countless stages around the globe and participate in various missions, showing that this message of hope in Christ transcends languages and cultures. He is the former host of TVU/Sky Angel Networks Planet Hip-Hop and has been featured on BETs Teen Summit and ever popular Rap City program.
He also launched his own outreach The Train Station: Hip-Hop Learn shops in 2005. The workshops are designed to teach youth ages 12-20 the foundational basics of Hip-Hop culture in one of the four elements; DJ/MC/Graf/B-Boyin all under the tutelage of Verbs and his team. The program goes even deeper to encourage participants to utilize their God given talents and further speaks on life and its purpose.
Fans can anticipate a contest where one lucky winner will be flown to Orlando on October 31st for a lunch, concert, and hang time with Verbs and fellow rapper Pettidee. The one winning ticket will be found inside of The Groundwork Theory purchased CD.
