Al Nuke entered the hip hop scene by releasing his debut album "Lifestyles of the Rich and Infamous" in 1996. The first single “Out Da Door” made an immediate impact selling over 10,500 records out the trunk of his car throughout Metro Detroit.
The release of his second album “Under Pressure” featuring the single and undisputed street anthem “My People” garnered Nuke a nomination for Best Artist of the year by Pearl Music Awards Association. It also yielded two hits, “Ain’t No Playa” and “Ball", and earned him underground respectability thus sealing his reputation as a legitimate artist in the mid-west hip hop community.
Nuke’s third album “My World” sold a respectable 11000 units and laid the groundwork for his fourth album “Bigg Bizz” executive produced by himself. This amalgamation of gangster, dance and r&b provides something for everyone. Singles like “Me n U” & “Ballin” featuring Badd Azz and Yuckmouth, provide a vivid portrayal of gangster life for the hard-core audience, “Party Non Stop” and “Nukie” are both bouncy and upbeat for the krunk club crowd while “Promises”, featuring Keith Washington reveals an even greater depth.
His most recent collection titled “Where Nuke At?”, demonstrates a new maturity in a long and rich career. Constantly able to recreate himself, Nuke has produced a work that will attract new listeners while keeping longtime fans satisfied. His personal favorites “Take it There” (featuring Proof of D12) and “Baby Girls”, a love letter to his daughters, exhibit an elevated level in subject matter as well as overall musicianship.
