Sabac

Real Name:
John Fuentes
Profile:
He was born in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico along with his twin sister. His family moved to Brooklyn, NY when he was 4 years old. Sabac was raised by his mom and grandmother who are Sicilian, Italian. Sabac grew up in the Gravesend section of BK, neighboring Bensonhurst and Coney Island.

He began his journey into Hip Hop as a B-Boy and aspiring Graf artist (but was a horrible Graf writer). At the age of 12, Sabac began exploring the art of emceeing. He would listen to Red Alert's and Marley Marl's radio shows (broadcast every weekend during the 1980s on KISS-FM & WBLS) and memorize other emcees lyrics. He would then make parodies of popular songs using his own lyrics. He would perform at block parties, school talent shows and anywhere there was music and a mic, constantly battling other emcees. At the age of 15, while attending Lafayette High School in Brooklyn, NY, Sabac would promote parties and shows for artists such as T-La-Rock, Milk and Gizmo, Big Daddy Kane, Greg Nice and many others. He was into anything that was Hip Hop affiliated. While in school, Sabac found himself getting into trouble with the law. He had to do community service at the CityKids Foundation where he learned how to use his lyrics to express his pain and the things that were going on around him. He is now the Director of the CityKids Foundation.

After high school, Sabac attended recording school where he earned himself a degree in recording engineering. He went on to work for Wild Pitch Records as Director of College Radio Promotions and worked records such as OC's "Word Life". He also did street promotion for Nas' "Illmatic" and a number of artists in the early 90s. In 1995, Sabac hooked up with ILL Bill and there began the relationship which is now the legacy called Non Phixion.
