ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Discography:
First ConTaC (16 Tracks, Running Time 59:26, Count The Cash Records, released June 6, 2006)

Biography:
Kenneth Maurice Thompson (ConTaC aka LA (Lyrical Assassin) was born in Warner Robbins, Georgia. He was raised in California, Hawaii, and Germany due to extensive moving caused by his families’ careers. This travel exposed him to a variety of musical genres and cultures; however, he found a love for hip-hop. Listening to artists such as OUTKAST, NWA, 2PAC, SPECIAL ED, BIG DADDY KANE, SNOOP, E-40, BONE THUGS, TWISTA, and BIGGIE SMALLS, just to name a few, were influential.

After graduating high school, Maurice enlisted in the U.S. Army, focusing on a medical profession. In extra curricular activity, while overseas in 1998-1999, he began his pursuit of becoming an Emcee when given the chance to battle local artists in the clubs. This led him to getting booked for shows in front of sold out crowds in Germany’s hottest clubs. With no stage name in hand, his close friends deemed him “Lyrical Assassin” (LA). Nonetheless, after a year of live performances, LA changed his name to ConTaC, claiming that alias signifies his way of life.

Following the stint in the U.S. Army, ConTaC returned stateside and settled in Atlanta, Georgia and hooked up with brothers Padre K and ‘Catur Lo, both songwriter and MC, to form the Southern Rituals (SR). The group cut several tracks with Producer/Keyboardist Kevin Kendricks, who produced “Say What” for SR, and is known for his work with OutKast (The Love Below), Big Boi (Got Purp Vol 2), Bubba Sparxxx (The Charm), Purple Ribbon All-Stars (Kryptonite), Kelis (Tasty), Gwen Stefani (Love Angel), and other Recording Artists.

After various recordings with SR, ConTaC decided to develop and expand his position in this congested market of Hip Hop. Consequently, he focused on solo songs and a few duets to propel his freshman project, "First ConTaC."

In a turn of events, after leaving the studio on a cool Georgia night in December 2004, ConTaC was involved in an accident caused by a deer on a dark country road. Swerving to steer clear of the deer, the 1999 Ford Explorer lost traction on the soft shoulder and flipped over. It slid on its hood/top for about 40 yards before flipping again and throwing ConTaC thru the windshield. With car upright and ConTaC on his back for a min, he eventually got up and somehow walked a half mile to his front door only to collapse bleeding from his head, shoulder and legs. Luckily, he didn’t have any life threatening injuries; however, he was fined and spent a few days in jail for leaving the scene of an accident.

The SUV was totaled and ConTaC was banged up pretty good, and the little doe deer made it back into the woods probably just to get hit next time. Anyway, with crutches in hand, gripping the grain, pad, keyboard, and mic, it wasn’t long before he started producing his own music again. Accordingly, in Jan 2006 he launched Count The Cash Records (CTC), which will be the catalyst in which to publish his projects, and that of others.
