Raised In Kumamoto Area the now Tokyo based rapper S-Word first emerged as a part of the legendary K.O.D.P. (King Of Diggin aka Muro Productions) after handling the job of a sales clerk at Muro’s own hip-hop shop Savage down in Shibuya, Tokyo in the later half of 1990’s. Influenced By Muro and a fellow sales clerk at the time by the name of Gore-Tex, S-Word discovered his passion for rhyming shortly after and started performing alongside the members of K.O.D.P. in various underground clubs at the time, such as the legendary Club Citta in Kawasaki. While Polishing his skills with long term friends Macka-Chin and Gore-Tex (the latter who had already got a name for himself on the scene thru Muro’s “Young Talent Program”) it was time for Muro’s new single which was also to become S-Word’s record debut in 1998.

Muro featured Tina, G.K. Maryan, Boo, Gore-Tex and S-Word himself, on the single “Weekend Funk #7” for Incredible Records magnificently showcased the newcomer’s talent and S-Word’s flow combined with his smoker voice instantly became popular amongst the fans. The road to underground star status was short for S-Word who was invited by the ex - b-boy DJ Watarai to join him and 2 old friends Macka-Chin & Gore-Tex, to record the classic track “Requiem” in 1999, which also became the foundation for S-Word’s group Nitro Microphone Underground during the same year. Requiem was a huge hit in the underground and its violent urban neighbourhood/kaminari influenced lyricism shocked the japanese scene with hardcore hip-hop settings that you had only heard on a couple of releases before.
