James Gooding IV

When you speak of Brok Bundlez, James Elliott or Saran, youd think you were talking about three different men. <br /><br />However, these are merely the aliases of a true renaissance man able to manipulate hip-hop, jazz, funk, soul and classical music into a meaty stew of loops, hooks and beats; always pleasing to the ear and filling for the soul. Though his relationship with hip-hop runs long and deep, many people havent heard of him. Thats all about to change Now living and working in Tulsa, Oklahoma, this Brooklanite doesnt consider himself a transplant. Hes right at home. So much so, he crafted his name, BROK BUNDELZ, to reflect that: The BR: Are for his home, The first two letters in the word Brooklyn The OK: For his new home in Oklahoma Bundlez: Bundles of money for my entire family. Through his many years in the game, Brok has flown under the radar, but has been a part of many high-profile projects. His break came by the way of New Yorks Hot 97FM D.J. Mister Cee. Under Mister Cee's wing, Brok laced Kool G. Rap's "Lifestyles of the Rich an Famous" on his Rated XXX Album. After that, Brok was asked to lend his unique talents to several projects. New Yorks Hot 97FM D.J. Mister Cee came calling, where Brok produced the shows intro for radio ultra-diva Wendy Williams. D.J. Mister Cee would eventually go on to be the Associate Executive Producer of The Notorious B.I.Gs debut album. Broks next single cut was the New York club banger "Shake dat Ass Girl", released on Tape Kingz records and produced by D.J.Mister Cee co-produced by Saran a.ka. BrokBundlez. When meeting with Camp Lo after a performance in Tulsa, Oklahoma one recalled the single: That song is a classic". It's a club banger! Coincidently, this track was recorded at the home of DJ Enuff, seen weekly on BETs 106th and Park. From this, Brok landed a job with the now defunct group, Da Bushwackass on Pallas Records and recorded a song called Bubblin Brown Sugar.(Unreleased but i got paid)Let's continue Next Brok recorded a song called "Showtime" by Scoob Lover, formerly a back-up dancer for Big Daddy Kane. Disenchanted with the current direction and often shady sides of hip hop music, Brok faded out of the scene temporarily to hone his craft and concentrate on his family. Now in a new home, surrounded by hungry MCs looking for a hit beat, this chef is dusting off his pot to cook up the perfect recipe for success. Dont call it a come back hes been here for years. <br /><br />
