Biographie

If it wasn’t for Theo Huxtable, Brendon Whitney might still be living in the woods of Southern Maine. Raised by a church organist/hobby store clerk and a firefighting jazz drummer on six acres of land in rural Hollis, little Bren never had cable television. It was a sad affair, and when the MTV receptors started flaring up in his 13-year-old brain, something had to be done. With only three general stores in town, the musical pickings were slim, so Bren and big sis Aubrey would stay up combing their five TV channels for some sort of sign. And that was when they found Theo, nee Malcolm-Jamal Warner, hosting NBCs Friday Night Videos.

Specifically, it was Special Ed’s « I’m the Magnificent » that did it. A 16-year-old who wears big clothes and claims to own 74 Honda scooters is hot shit to a kid growing up where the nearest person his age lives on the other side of a small forest peppered with toothless itinerants. Bren began buying every hip-hop magazine he could find, plastering the walls of his bedroom (shared by younger brother Ehren, age 3) with torn-out pictures of rappers feverishly grabbing their crotches. His parents were unsure about the crotches, but supportive of his passion, so on Christmas of 1992 they gave him his first drum machine. Exit little Bren, enter big Alias.

Alias was a drummer in the high school band, but he was a gangster with his boom box in the woods. In 1993, a trip to the Maine Mall brought him to the feet of a real life Karl Kani-fitted hip-hop guru.
