In the late 90s, Sacha Krishna began to develop a passion for music. At the time, he didn't realize he would ultimately go on to perform in front of audiences in his hometown of Ottawa, in addition to shows across the country. However, after much writing, it was only a few years later that the young emcee, known as Prehistoric, was born. Lighting up the Ottawa hip hop scene, Prehistoric took the city by storm with his provocative lyrics and energetic stage presence.
Over the last 10 years, Prehistoric's intense presence on the microphone has seen him become a prolific freestyle battler, competing in numerous events over the years. His time battling was highlighted by a Last Man Standing victory when he was only 19.
Since then, Prehistoric has begun to hone his freestyle skills into original, written work, ultimately leading him to release 4 albums and 1 mixtape to date. The first album came in 2003, entitled Three Hoot Americans, followed by The Prehistoric EP in 2005, Where Honesty Lies in 2007, Sixty Second Salvation Mixtape in 2011, which featured the track “This Life”, and Forgive The Hero in 2012.
Known for his high energy performances, Prehistoric has played numerous shows across Canada and the United States, opening for artists including Juno Award and Polaris Prize nominated artist D-Sisive, the legendary Masta Ace, CunninLynguists, Louis Logic , Tha Dogg Pound, Kurupt, Daz Dillinger, and Sweat Shop Union.
In 2012, Prehistoric competed in his first KING OF THE DOT "Ground Zero" battle, winning in an impressive performance against artist Switch. In addition, Prehistoric successfully participated in the Live 88.5 BIG MONEY SHOT, advancing to the second round of the respected Ottawa competition. In 2012 Prehistoric also found time to work tirelessly on his latest album, Forgive The Hero, produced by Addaboe. The album has produced 3 music videos to date, including the latest for the track, "Forgive the Hero". In addition, the album charted on campus radio, where it broke the Top 10.
Prehistoric worked tirelessly throughout 2014 to release his latest, 17 track album Walking Backwards on an Escalator. The album has a new fresh feel, and showcases the impressive evolution of Prehistoric's unique sound and lyrical abilities.
Stay tuned for Prehistoric's upcoming release Elephant Graveyard, coming later this year.
