Hush is an American hip hop artist from Detroit, Michigan. He is of Italian and Lebanese descent and he is also a long-time friend of Eminem. He's also a producer and has worked with a variety of artists. He was signed to Area Code Management and DTW Records, but left for Geffen Records to release his debut album.
With his creative writing expanding Hush chose to move into the solo field after producing and writing material in abundance. Since 2000, he has been garnering more and more attention. Between 2000-2002, he was signed to DTW Records as an artist and produced the bootleg album "There Goes The Neighborhood", which had created a buzz in the city. That was short lived however.
He is credited on Eminem's famous The Slim Shady EP (1997) and performed alongside Eminem and others in concert long before any of the artist were well known. Hush is a longtime collborator with Kid Rock protégé Paradime and D12, and has also appeared on tracks with Slum Village and Royce Da 5'9".
In Spring 2005, Hush released his debut single "Hush is Coming" which featured Nate Dogg. The video had appearances by Eminem, Obie Trice, Swift and Omar Cruz. That same spring, Hush was included on the soundtrack for xXx: State of the Union with his song "The March". Hush released his debut album Bulletproof on Geffen Records on August 23, 2005. It featured a list of star guest appearances including long-time friend Eminem, Kuniva, Swift, and Bizarre of D12, Nate Dogg, and Talib Kweli. Later that fall, a clean version of Hush's song "Fired Up" was featured on the soundtrack for the Need for Speed: Most Wanted video game.
After the release of "Bulletproof" he promoted the album by joining the Anger Management III Tour, with fellow rap musicians Eminem, Stat Quo, 50 Cent, D12, Bizarre, Obie Trice, G-Unit, Lil Jon, Ludacris, Bobby Creekwater, Mase, Mobb Deep, Pitbull and Olivia, among others.
In 2005, Hush performed on NBC's season finale of The Contender. He also had songs on almost every episode of the show. Since 2005, he has also appeared on the Spike TV Reality show "Murder" and has been trying to his expand his career in acting.
In 2010, Hush was approached by Monica Martino and asked to be a part of her Discovery Channel series "A Dogs Life", which was later shut down by the city. In February 2011, the two founded a group called Detroit Dog Rescue to raise money for animal shelters and to help bring stray dogs off the streets of Detroit. Today, they are raising money for Detroit's first 'no kill' animal shelter, as well as placing abused, unwanted or abandoned dogs. They also involve and educate the community about the problem of stray dogs in Detroit.
