After making the rounds on the underground rap scene as every MC's favorite featured-guest-to- lend-street-cred, Hawk is finally soaring alone. He started out as a member of the Dead End Alliance (DEA), but went solo with his first album, Under Hawk's Wings, after watching two fellow Screwed-Up Click members pass from this realm. (His brother is the late Fat Pat; his mentor and friend is the late, great DJ Screw.) Hawk is best known for his booming presence on the mike, and his voice is instantly recognizable on such hits as Lil' O's "Back, Back" and Lil' Troy's "Wanna Be a Baller."
