Over the years here at DetroitRap.com we have made some great relationships. Some would seem strange as we are doing the same thing but when you are doing it for the cause there is no competition. Over the years we got to know Joe Commisso for repping Detroit Hip Hop properly.
It is a pleasure after a short hiatus to have COMMI$$ION back on the scene repping that Hip Hop on Detroit’s Home for Hip Hop DetroitRap.com. The global destination for anything Hip Hop culture related in the mitten.
Get to know a little more about COMMI$$ION and what possibilities he bring to the team!

31 year old Joe Commisso has spent half his life embedded in hip hop one way or another & is driven towards making a positive impact on the art form any way he can contribute.
From early beginnings he entered the Detroit hip hop scene as a graphic artist designing for a variety of local rappers. All this while secretly honing his own records behind the scene & building a network of driven artists like him by his side to develop their sounds. In 2009 the network became a team & the brand behind it all became Sparkhop. A blog slash label aimed at promoting quality hip hop & most of all bringing together the Detroit hip hop community in a constructive positive way. From founding Sparkhop, running a successful blog, & putting on Sparkfest – a 40+ act local hip hop all day festival for 3 yrs running Joe Commisso was constantly wrapped in rap around the Detroit area! Unfortunately life happens & in late 2013 he was forced to step away from it all & take a bit of a hiatus. Still in the background & still constantly on the search for new hip hop he stayed silent for a few years. Bring on 2018, a new alias COMMi$$ION to spread his own raps & a new hunger to get back to helping showcase all the talent Detroit has to offer any way he can.

FEATURED

Behind the Scenes with “KILLZ” (Big Proof Story)

Published

Killz

I’ve been struggling while deciding what to let you guys read as my first write up here with Detroitrap.com. I’ve decided that I will share a story about myself first to let the readers understand a little more about who I am and the life I have lived in Detroit HipHop. I know so many people in the industry and most are like family so these are some personal memories of my life. This one is featuring one of Detroit’s top emcees @tyfarris.
In 2005 we were both signed to Iron Fist records with our group the Purple Gang and were blessed to tour with the legendary D12 and Slum Village. The tour was packed with Detroit people and we all knew each other and rolled as family as we crossed the country performing every night literally living our dreams. When we hit the streets we were deep and we always made sure everyone was good and nobody would fuck with us cause we were from Detroit and you could just tell we didn’t play that shit.
One day in Rhode Island, out of all places, we get into one of the craziest fights ever and for no reason at all besides defending Detroit. Let me explain Rhode Island to you for the folks who never been. It’s a small state that is the size of most big cities. We had a great show and the whole city was buzzing because the tour was in town. This was the last leg of tour and most of the people who traveled with us were tired or fell back to fuck with some chics, so we weren’t deep when we hit the scene that night.
There was only 4 of us with no security cause we were in Rhode Island, and there is no way we are getting into shit in this town. As soon as we hit downtown people were everywhere because of some black empowerment summit festival and we thought that this was perfect for us to go to. It was me, Proof, Ty, and Dj Salaam Wreck. Salaam had a few chics meet us and they were cold so we like bet we drinking tonight. We hit one bar and got shit popping but if anybody knows Proof, they know we not sitting in one place for too long, so off we go to another bar. As soon as we exited the bar shit went left. There was a group of guys outside maybe 12 of them and they knew the girls we were with. On some shit out of D12 song, one of them runs up but he was on some fan shit. He says I can’t believe it y’all it’s Obie Trice. I’m ctfu instantly cause I know how Proof feels about shit like this. Proof was the fucking man before Eminem blew up and everyone from the city still respected him as such, but out of town was a different story. D12 was triple platinum at the time but there were 6 members of the group and unless you were Bizarre or Em people would mess your name up all the time unless you were their favorite. Proof actually handled this one cool and laughed as well and said naw that ain’t me and we kept going. Dude starts yelling screaming fuck Obie Trice and you a bitch for not signing the autograph. Proof had been in all types of trouble and he didn’t want us to do shit and said let’s go. I looked at Ty and he couldn’t believe it either. Then I thought about it and the chics Salaam had were cold as fuck and losing out on them was not an option.🤣😂😭🤣😂 Ty had this look on his face though like he wasn’t with the giggles this day and said did you hear that Proof…HE CALLED YOU A BITCH. Proof hated being called a bitch and would scrap every time if that shit was said but today he was like let’s go. The next shit sounded like slow motion. FUCK YOU AND ALL THEM DETROIT NIGGAS . Proof looked over and said fuck it go ahead and that’s exactly what we did. I dropped one to the left and Ty dropped two on the right, I saw another guy confused like he didn’t know how we dropped 3 so fast so I clocked his thinking ass and he was down. Ty drops another guy and I see the remnants of Salaam as he had dropped 2 and was sliding another guy across some product table. These niggas couldn’t believe that 3 people had whipped on 8 people So fast and the other 4 started playing peace keeper.
Proof didn’t do a thing in this scrap cause of legal trouble like I told you before so he was with the peace keeping shit as well. Y’all fucked up when y’all said that shit about Detroit. Ty had did this one nigga bad and he was still salt that he was leaking and he grabbed a box cutter and tried to run up again. This shit had Ty heated and he was trying to kill this nigga after that shit. I was laughing so hard cause he so mad and I never seen him go completely crazy like that. He was ready to murder that guy until one of the peace keepers said Obie Trice and them beat y’all ass. Man we were dying laughing as we left.
Moral of the story is , don’t fuck with people from Detroit and never pull a blade on Ty Farris, his face that day still floors me every time. Peace y’all, the anks for looking at a little Detroit history with me.
