It takes talent to make the struggle to succeed seem effortless, but that is the gift that separates artists like Queens native Antony Capers, aka 10 Minute, from the everyday MC. While most rappers spend more and more time convincing the masses that their "THUGGED OUT," 10 lets his work speak for him. Holding nothing but a bottle and pen at an early age he was destined to create. Growing up in a time where comic book sales where at an all time high and Japan-Imation first hit the US scene, 10 was right in the middle.
From attending Leonardo DaVinci's Jr. High School in Corona to graduating from the High School of Art & Design in the heart of New York city, Manhattan. 10, has been dealing with the arts for as long as he can remember. As an artist he was above average and always seeking ways to better his craft, and what better way than music. He always had an infatuation with rap music. Even has a teenager he started a rap group called "Seedz ov Reality" with his child hood friend Cessou Bernard aka "Cess". Having moved to Tampa Bay in 1994 it made it hard to record the two talented kids.
As they began making music the art had seemed to get pushed to the back burner. Like most Gemini's 10 is no different. The hunger to create and the desire to make his dreams come true were imperative to him. Instead of starting his comic book label in the mid to late 90's he decided to start an independent production label. ARCMedia Design Group, Inc. was established in the year 1998 in Tampa, Florida by Mr. Capers. From graphic design to full fledge music production he chose to handle it all, and did very well. Still not satisfied he decided to try and fulfill another dream. The dream is to one day headline a multi city tour as a dominant rapper in the hip hop community. With that being said I give you 10 Minute. A name given to him by local rappers he grew up with in the Tampa area.
With the single "Get the fuck up" unleashed on the radio 10's moment is just upon him. 10 learned a lot from his time in waiting and is eager to capitalize on his experience. With his hit-making ability, 10 Minute is eager to show the diversity of his technique while staying true to his blueprint for success. His wit and wordplay is not something to take for granted and the MC is confident people will come around.
