Netic is one of the founders as well as the lead vocalist of the Brooklyn-born band Game Rebellion. Before rhyming with Game Rebellion, he was a brain and cognitive sciences major at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he enrolled at the age of sixteen. Game Rebellion is an all-Black, all-outta-Brooklyn band whose metal, punk, and rudeboy skanking licks sound as credible and crunchy as their hip-hop lyrics and head nodding bounce. The lyrical prowess and production of Netic provide an unobstructed view of the angst of young rebels everywhere. Game Rebellion has been making big waves on the New York scene for about three years. In that short time they've ventured out even further to slam heads, rock houses and muddy the lily white waters of hip-hop and rock from NYC and Cali to Puerto Rico and the UK. They just may be the best-kept secret in music right now. Their album Searching for Rick Rubin (2008) explores classic hip-hop songs originally produced by studio legend Rick Rubin, re-imagined in Game Rebellion’s own style and mixed by J.period.
