SAPP REEFA

Mr. Sapp Reefa was born in Manila, Philippines in 1983 as Adrian Jamaal Sapp, but was raised in Augusta, GA. It was the slum and corrupt projects of Sunset Homes (now known as Cherry Tree Crossing) that dealt him the rough and rugged life he now writes so much about. Being the second oldest son born to a single mother, Sapp Reefa recalls often watching and hearing of open drug deals, RCSD patrols and raids, and murders happening in the back streets of the projects. Sapp Reefa found himself protecting his home while at the same time contributing to the corrupt society in which he lived. After multiple run-ins with the law for selling, possession, grand-theft, and other unmentionable crimes, Sapp found an outlet for his emotions from a not so welcoming life as a youngster – the art of RAP. Any listener can hear the mental abuse that took place in Sapp Reefa’s childhood… In one of his first written raps as an illiterate but street smart "Illegal Soldier", Sapp Reefa boasts "I gives a fuck about myself so what you think a nigga mean to me"!! This wild and Taliban-like attitude made Sapp Reefa a name for himself as an up and coming young soldier in the acclaimed Barton Village Augusta, GA suburbs. Sapp Reefa began a career with the Barton Village Souljahz a.k.a "Millionaires N’ Playaz " a nationally acclaimed group known for their O.W.T.T. (Only With True Thugs) theme. He eventually branched off from the BVS scene and created a team of artists named the ‘Illegal Souljahz’. Feeling no progression was being made, Sapp took on a solo career. He began producing his own music and writing constantly. He linked up with labels Ghetto Child Entertainment & Gutta Records Ent. to begin pushing his music across the Southeast. He produced hits like, “Get Yo Ass On The Floor”, and “Riding Off”. He has been heard and seen performing with various artists like Pilla, D.U.B., Ben Beamon, Wayne C., Mr. Hill, and a host of other artists that have made a name for themselves in the game. Sapp Reefa is now an executive at the Hip-Hop games newest label – Gutta Records & Ent. While posting as a significant shareholder in the company, he is still grinding his style of music and preparing for his debut album – "GREEN EFFECT".
