B-Hold Da General Brandon "B-Hold 'Da General'" Holden, born in Kansas City, Missouri to Kris Harrison, a hard working woman who loves listening to blues, gospel, and R&B. Ronald Holden, father, loves listening to rap. Artists such as Eminem, 2pac, and E40 played a part in his upbringing. B-Hold has always had a passion for poetry and music. Throughout his years of school he made straight A's and B's. In high school, even as a freshman, he would walk the track and freestyle in a circle of friends for at least a mile. Musically influenced by battle rappers: [Serius Jones, Murda Mook, Hitman Holla, Hollow Da Don, and watching Freestyle Friday.] Other influences like: Lil Wayne, Drake, T.I, Ludacris, and any other lyrical, REALISTIC rappers. Originally, a basketball playing poet, wrote raps very seldomly. In 2009, his senior year, with a broken ankle, the nearly undefeated basketball team (Grandview Bulldogs) loss the state championship. This loss took a toll on him but it made him stronger. Once the graduation and the summer passed, his first year in college was a disaster. He got cut from the team, and his grades were falling. And started sellin illegal substances to keep money in his pocket. He then began writing music; influenced by Dwayne "WayneWayne 'BoutDat,'" a childhood friend. In the early part of 2010, B-Hold, and his friends; Cody Hastings, and Devin Clark made up the name "High Plane Gang" which at the moment, meant: (We Stay High, Stay fly like Planes, and roll together, that's a Gang.) Later that year WayneWayne and B-hold dropped a Mixtape called, "On Da Come Up Vol. 1" (Prod. By Q-Redmondz) After his first encounter with recording he fell in love with it. He went on a spree and wrote over 100 verses in less than 3 days. After numerous times of getting in trouble with the law he made the decision to get his life back on track. His mother relocated to Birmingham, Alabama, he got back in school and hooked up with BallGame Ent. With their in-house studio, he made 3 more mixtapes: Real Life: True Story, (made just to practice self production) We Live For This Vol. 1: Beyond Expectation, (dropped early 2011, his first cd based on the self made High Planes name, which was switched to HIGH PLANES MUSIC; also his first mixtape with no cursing.) Bad Grades: Dedication Determination, Desire, and Faith, (2nd HPM mixtape, no cursing, very lyrical, laid back, and motivational.) and We Live For This Vol. 2: Thank Da InduSTREE (with very little cursing, and immaculate lyrics; using mainstream artists' beats, including artists like: 2pac, Jill Scott, Drake, Lauryn Hill, Celly Cel, etc.) Currently B-Hold is working on the upcoming Cd: (H.A.T.E: Hustlin Aint That Easy) an independent artist, and songwriter is walking the path to success and stardom.
