ShowYouSuck born on the west side of Chicago, raised by a single mother and crazed over alternative & metal music at a young age. Show’s first encounters with Smashing Pumpkins, Anthrax and Slayer had him hooked and turned him into a devoted rock fan. There was a well-known lack of interest for the genre where ShowYouSuck lived, but that wouldn't stop him from creating the craft he knew he was built for. Not having accessibility to an instrument or people interested in participating in a band drove Show to rap. He was eager to create music he liked, music for people like him. Although his writing and flow wasn't your typical hip-hop style he chose to continue to pave his own lane—creating a unique style that fuses punk, Based, Trill, rap with a touch of wit.

After graduating from the Art Institute, ShowYouSuck found himself amongst like-minded people, working at an Art Gallery & tattoo shop, Show felt inspired and welcomed sharing his creations, not realizing fans were growing by the dozens. ShowYouSuck realized there was no turning back for him after he saw the attendance at his sold out "OMPP2" mix tape release party held at Reggie's Rock Club in 2012. The crowd moshed and crowd surfed as he created the set he's always dreamed of, he was introducing the crowd to a whole new genre and they didn't object. ShowYouSuck thrives during his live set and never disappoints. He's given live hip-hop an entertainment standard "if you're not here to party get out!" is ShowYouSuck's motto.

ShowYouSuck has raised the bar for live hip-hop performances and is considered a trailblazer for a new era, alternative hip-hop. Show continues to promote P.M.A (Positive Mental Attitude) while connecting with his fans through shared obsessions such as fun, food and relationships. ShowYouSuck has performed across the United States, winning over fans in New York, California, Texas, Washington, Missouri, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Arizona, Ohio and more. ShowYouSuck ignites stages across the country and spreads the message of friendship, life’s ups & downs, and partying.

ShowYouSuck is establishing himself as one of the most relevantly liked emcees out of Chicago, giving his fans everything he didn't have as a kid, a live metal enthused, rap performance. While making appearances on MTV Suckerfree, joining Yelawolf’s national “Slumerican” Tour and still finding time to release three mixtape projects, including “Girls, Girls, Girls”(Produced By Stefan Ponce), and “Loose Slices”, ShowYouSuck will not stop.

ShowYouSuck is supported by Complex, MTV2, 2Dopeboyz, Hypetrak, Ruby Hornet, The Sun Times and Mishka . He has worked with DJ duo Flosstradamus, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Treated Crew and production credits from Mike Jaxx of The Hydrox, Cardo of Taylor Gang, Thelonious Martin and more.
