“Music belongs to the universe.
It is man, in his own selfishness that gives it a genre.”
Born, and raised in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, New York. H.A.P.H. (Half Animal Part Human) was given birth as Nigel Le Guerre to parents of the West Indies island of Trinidad & Tobago.
His odyssey began the very moment he laid hands on his mother’s old phonograph record player for the first time. With countless hours of practice, and a few broken needles, his passion for rubbing vinyl was born. With 15” woofers, and the repetition of the same song playing over & over, he literally drove the household crazy. What began as a kid merely disturbing the peace, suddenly lead to to a full time hobby, and a part time job as the neighborhood’s go to guy for rocking local
basement & house parties.
Although, the turntables were the founding base, it wasn’t until H.A.P.H. discovered the power of expression in reciting the first rhyme he had written about his childhood girlfriend, that he had found the building blocks.
In the mid nineties he got together with two other homies from the neighborhood. (J- Runnah & Wais) Collectively the three made up the rap group amply known as "THE RANJAHZ". In 1996 the group inked a single deal, and released their debut “Street Life”/ “Daily Basis” with Profile Records. In 1998 the group landed a guest appearance on Jay-z's Hard Knock Life. Vol-2,
track titled: "If I Should Die". In 1999 they appeared on Memphis Bleek's debut album Coming of Age, track titled: “N.O.W.” that was also produced by H.A.P.H. In 2000 the group went on to ink their first album deal with "Carter Faculty/DEF JAM" records. Although, the label bared the last name of it’s counterpart, it’s daily operation(s) were overseen by associates. Due to poor administration the group stepped away from the label, which later collapsed. In 2003 THE RANJAHZ had signed an independent deal, and finally released an album titled: WHO FEELS IT KNOWS, that featured the underground classic titled: “Inspiration” featuring Cee-Lo Green of Gnarls Barkley, produced by Dj Premier.
