About THE BITTERDOSE
“The original Tennessean don dada” Eddie Meeks is a
true veteran of the music industry. Eddie Meeks who
makes up one-third of the Atlanta based super group
Prophetix has been releasing records for almost 10 years
and still going strong. Eddie Meeks who is originally from
Memphis, Tenn. got his start in the mid-90’s with his first
single “Larger Than Life” and has been on a roll ever
since. With his group projects “Larger Than Life” EP,
“Da Unfold” EP and “High Risk” LP under his belt,
countless shows, tours with KRS-One, guest appearances
and his very own mixtape “Getcha Money Maiyne” it is
now time for Big Meeks to let the world hear him on the
solo tip with his debut album “After This I’ll Holla (On
Everythang I Love)” for 2005.
While landing the #1 spot twice on the Joint One Radio
Show, thousands in the United States are getting a chance to experience what all the chatter is about. Not
waiting on the industry to "give" him a recording deal, he formed Asylum Entertainment in 1995. Asylum
Entertainment has released over 8 independent records including Larger Than Life b/w Gunclappin' (1997),
Larger Than Life The EP (1998), Da Unfold (2000), Art Varies From Head To Head, the HDZ Project
(2000), True Urban Grit (2001), High Risk (2002), Bigguns (2003), and Meet Jon Doe (2003)..
His crew, PROPHETIX, is composed of lyricists Eddie Meeks and Mello Melanin and DJ/Producer Jon
Doe. Currently the new video for their single "Gotcha" from the Meet Jon Doe album is making its rounds
globally on video shows, the Internet, and the World Wide Web. Their music has charted in major markets
such as Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Orlando, Seattle, the United Kingdom, Tokyo, Japan, and Sydney,
Australia. Outstanding accomplishments include a hot remix by Jon Doe on the world famous Beastie Boys
Anthology DVD, performances at the legendary Apollo in Harlem, New York, and sharing the stage with
the Grammy award winning Hip-Hop band, The Roots, KRS-ONE, Talib Kweli, Slum Village, Dead Prez,
and MF Doom.
The originality of his music earned him a featured spot in several College Music Journal live showcases
including the CMJ Musicfest in New York. His music has been highlighted on television shows and
commercials broadcast on BET, MTV, TNT, and Turner South and on various radio shows across the
country. Meeks hit the metro Atlanta area as a college freshmen at Southern Tech in Marietta, GA and has
been striving toward the top ever since. He met Jon Doe while he was a college radio DJ at Western
Kentucky University. When Jon graduated, he moved to Nashville to rock at Vanderbilt radio for one
semester. Then he moved to Atlanta, linked up with the Memphis born emcee, and the rest is history.
But don't get the vision twisted – this artist is definitely hungry.
In hot pursuit of closing his first label deal, Meeks drove 3,000 miles from Atlanta to Los Angeles to make
sure their music was being properly represented at the label. He has been known to use the "Guest List"
tactic to get into clubs free to promote their art. Jon Doe came out of no where and added a whole new
dimension to their arsenal.
Next up to bat is the highly anticipated solo album by Eddie Meeks called “After This I’ll Holla (On
Everythang I Love)”. Striving to survive in this business of music, Meeks will do whatever it takes to make
it known that he is here to stay!
