Early life and music career[edit]

Rampage was born Roger McNair in Brooklyn, New York City on August 1, 1974 to Katherine McNair and Roger Williams, who are from Jamaica. In 1992, McNair landed his first recording deal with Dallas Austin on Rowdy / Arista Records and released the single Beware of the Rampsack. In 1994, he recorded Flava in Ya Ear (Remix) with Craig Mack, Notorious B.I.G., LL Cool J, and Busta Rhymes. In 1996, he recorded the Platinum Single "Woo Hah!! Got You All in Check" with Busta Rhymes for the platinum album The Coming.

One year later, he landed his second recording deal with Elektra Records and released his Gold solo LP Scout's Honor... by Way of Blood which featured the top-40 hit "Take It to the Streets" and "Wild for da Night". In 1998 he released The Imperial with the Flipmode Squad, which gave them their first Source Award in 1999. Since then he has recorded with Busta Rhymes on numerous platinum albums and has featured on numerous projects including a remix of the multi-platinum single Fallin' by Alicia Keys.

Currently based in Phoenix, Arizona, McNair recently signed an independent record label deal for his company DeepFreeze Entertainment with Sure Shot Records. On that label he has released for promotional use a single of a new group signed to D.F.E named Total Vision. Lady Day, a female rapper, is also on the roster.

Circa 2005, McNair decided to relaunch his solo career and released an official mixtape called Demagraffix which was designed as a starter to his soon-to-be-released second album. The LP itself arrived in 2006, entitled Have You Seen? (Sure Shot Records).
