About Suspect

When you think of artist like Tupac (2pac) Shakur, Chad (Pimp C) Butler or Lamont (Big L) Coleman, this what you are going to get out of John (Suspect) Reynolds. Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, John was born and raised by a single black woman and grandmother Marla Reynolds and Christine Johnson. John came up in music as far as church choirs, Saturday mourning cleaning jam sessions and of course a mother who had an over 2000 CD and tape collection. John recalls going to blockbuster music, CD warehouse, best buy etc. and seeing his mother spend hundreds of dollars at a time with CD’s at home that hadn’t been touched yet. Buy the time John was five he set up his 1st computer and DJ’d for the grown folks spades parties.
 
"The first groups that had me infatuated with hip hop was Brotha Lynch hung, Kriss Kross, Bone Thugs n Harmony and Death Row Records. I would buy the CD’s and play them until the ribbon on the tape broke or the CD was scratched to hell. Kansas City is little California so I wasn’t really into east coast music. Raised in private school and lived in the black community was a difficult thing to go through. At school people tell you your ghetto and at home they say you act white. This is what made me who I am today, just the mindset of having to fit in in both worlds. Kansas City in the early 90′s was notorious for crips and bloods. Parade Park where I came from was a crip neighborhood."
