Biografie

Project Wyze was a Canadian rap rock band active from 1996 before breaking up in 2003 to pursue their side-project Dead Celebrity Status.

MCs Yas Taalat and Bobby McIntosh started out as a hip hop duo under the name of Project Wyze in 1988 when they were teenagers in Sudbury, Ontario.[1] While attending high school, Project Wyze established a reputable image in the underground hip-hop scene by opening for acts such as Dream Warriors, Maestro Fresh Wes and Michie Mee.[2] They were also one of the first Canadian groups to open for the influential American hip-hop group, Public Enemy.[1]

The pair subsequently moved to London, Ontario after high school. In 1995, Yas and Bobby were invited to perform with a punk rock band. [3] The experience was such a positive one that the two groups fused together. The hip-hop group Project Wyze had now evolved into a rock/rap band including members Adam Arsenault (guitar), and Tye Thomas (bass). The band started writing new music and they released their first EP, Trapz of Poetic Poison, on an indie label in 1996.[2] Project Wyze toured the United States in 1998, performing with artists like Papa Roach and the Step Kings.[3]

After the success of the first EP, the band enlisted the talents of Sasha Kosovic (guitar), Brad Dean (drums) and Elie Abdelnour (bass) to round out the line-up. In 2000, with the new band established, Project Wyze released a longer sophomore EP, Only If I Knew.[2] Growing record sales and an expanding fan base grabbed the attention of major labels.
