AlpHaMatic - 2015
Cody Dean Hall (born November 7th, 1985), known by his stage name AlpHaMatic, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. Raised in Casper, Wyoming, AlpHaMatic developed an interest in music as a teenager, and ventured into a musical career in early 2004 releasing a handful of demos and underground projects as a solo artist and with a Wyoming based Hip Hop group called Opposition. In 2005 AlpHaMatic moved to Eugene, OR and joined the northwest Hip Hop group known as The pHormula. The pHormula was DJ pHonics (DJ/Producer), pHilosophy (emcee), E.T./Examine The Truth (emcee) and AlpHaMatic (emcee). After releasing two projects with The pHormula, “What The pH!*#” and “No Formula”, the group dissolved in 2008 and AlpHaMatic moved back to his hometown, Casper, Wyoming.
In 2009 AlpHaMatic formed the BeastEater Musick movement with Doc Suess, his long-time rap partner and member of the group Opposition. The “Do Work” mixtape was released in 2009 and was the first project that kicked of BeastEater Musick. In 2009 AlpHaMatic started recording and producing for another label in Wyoming known as DeathLab Productions. At the core of DeathLab was the group Prescription Rx which included MC Viruz, Big Murda, Statik The Godfather, and Biskit. In 2010, AlpHaMatic released his first solo record that was self-titled. After the release of his self-titled project AlpHaMatic shifted gears and started to focus on his production and sound engineering. Between 2010 and 2013 he recorded and produced a handful of projects for artists in his region. Records that were released included; “America’s High”- Prescription Rx, “High Gravity Mixtape”- MC Viruz, “The Way of Life”- Biskit, “Shoot Me Up with Hip Hop”- Biskit, “Statik Attack”- Statik The Godfather, “Slightly Sober”- Statik The Godfather, “Doc Suess”- Doc Suess, “Blood, Sweat, and Tears”- Venom (Jeneration) and Fade’s first mixtape.
AlpHaMatic was introduced to the national scene in 2013 when he joined Statik for the M.M.M.F.D. Tour. At this time, Statik and AlpHaMatic formed Statik Entertainment and still produced under the BeastEater Musick movement. This tour was the beginning of AlpHaMatic and Statik’s involvement with the Denver, CO based record label called LSP (Lyrikal Snuff Productions). In early 2014 AlpHaMatic released his second solo record titled “Status Unstable”. Status Unstable was distributed nationally on the second tour that he and Statik went on with LSP, The Grim Zipper tour in the spring of 2014. In August of 2014 AlpHaMatic and Statik were signed to LSP and continued their march across the nation and in the Midwest regions of America. In late 2014 AlpHaMatic and Cody Rack (member of the group Opposition) joined together and released “In First, Out Last” the first release from the group Opposition since 2005.
AlpHaMatic and Statik decided in 2015 that it was time to merge Statik Entertainment and BeastEater Musick. This was the birth of RhymeSick Entertainment which is the current label that AlpHaMatic owns and operates present day. Many setbacks occurred during the years to follow for AlpHaMatic due to alcohol and drug abuse. Less than a year after signing to LSP, AlpHaMatic was released from the label, and in 2016 AlpHaMatic took a step back from RhymeSick Entertainment and music all together. In August of 2016, AlpHaMatic was indicted federally for counterfeiting currency and he finally reached rock bottom. The next step for AlpHaMatic was jail time and entering a residential rehab program. Currently, AlpHaMatic is still on federal probation but has been clean and sober for almost two years.
In October of 2017, AlpHaMatic released the “MouthAmatic’s Vol. 1” solo mixtape and shortly after teamed up with Doc Suess and released the “GhostStories Vol. 1” mixtape in January of 2018. AlpHaMatic’s third solo record will be releasing in June, 2018 and it will be called “Sticks 2 Stages”. In March of 2018, AlpHaMatic and Statik G released a cypher that featured Crooked I of Shady Records.
