Early life[edit | edit source]
Serious Truth was a graffiti artist in his early teens and was part of a local graffiti crew until he got arrested for vandalism and sent to the Academy at Ivy Ridge at age 14, where he played a minor role in the 2005 Riot at Ivy Ridge. At the academy, Serious Truth started his transition from graffiti artist to becoming a songwriter, author, and recording artist.
Aggravated Mayhem & solo career[edit | edit source]
Aggravated Mayhem was a hip-hop group from the North Shore (Massachusetts) established in June 2009. Aggravated Mayhem was founded by Serious Truth, Mindstate (William Chadwick), and Reality (Johnathan Chadwick) upon their release from incarceration, un-armed robbery and assault and battery with intent to maim, respectively. Between the summer of 2009 and Mindstate & Reality's sentencing to 2.5 - 4 years in MCI Walpole - Cedar Junction spring of 2010, Aggravated Mayhem recorded an albums worth of music, which was released by Serious Truth sometime in mid 2012. Upon Mindstate and Reality's release from prison in late 2012, they recorded a small demo's worth of recordings, one of which was made into the "Posted Up" music video 
Solo career and record production[edit | edit source]
Serious Truth went on to work on music with Layzie Bone, Buckwild, Reks, Termanology as well as producing music for Krumbsnatcha after his stint with Aggravated Mayhem. Lesser known artists that Serious Truth has collaborated with include My Insane Consciousness, Conkept, Mike Twain, Petey Mitch, Amen from Hellzwind & more.
In late 2014 Serious Truth entered into a brief, year and a half long friendship with Sean Price. The two artists planned to work on an album together. After about a year's worth of correspondence, the two reached an agreement over royalties during a late night, laugh-filled phone conversation and began to work on an album produced by Serious Truth. With only one song finished on the album, Sean Price passed away in his sleep on the morning of August 8th, 2015. Out of respect and sheer depression, Serious Truth quit making music for approximately 3 years. In 2017 Serious Truth released the one collaboration song with Sean Price.
In June 2018, Serious Truth started making music once again. He has an instrumental album called "Means of Production" set to be released on June 6th, 2018.
