10 April 2012 - Concussion
Hey everyone. You probably haven't heard from me in quite awhile. I suffered a few smaller concussions from mid 2010 to mid 2011, which I naively ignored. Then in August 2011, I suffered a big one. It's more than 7 months later, and my life is still paused as I very slowly recover. I haven't been able to tolerate listening to music since the "big one", so unfortunately, I wasn't able to put out a Canadian rap compilation last year (first time since 2002). I also haven't been able to pursue my own music since mid 2010. If you get hit in the head, pause & rest... cause if you've got a bad head injury, your injured brain might not be able to detect it. I will recover, it's just a very slow process.

28 February 2006 - Introduction
When I started out in 1999 my focus was on having fun, which I accomplished while garnering considerable accolades as Pimp Tea (formerly PIMP-T). However, the maturity gained from seven years of writing, performing and simply living life, has led to my desire to move away from the "pimp" persona.

So, I'd like to introduce, Brockway Biggs and welcome you to this site, as I take yet another step along my artistic path.
