Early Life

Mr Capone E was born in Pakistan to an ehtnic Hazara family. He and his family moved to West Covina at an early age. [1]. He grew up around gangs and became a Sureño. He was incarcerated at 18, and while serving time he decided he wanted to pursue a career in Hip Hop. [2]

Music Career

2000-2005, Career Beginings

Mr. Capone-E released his first solo album in 2000 titled "Mr. Capone E & The Southsiders" independently through his label Hi Power. This album received alot of buzz and caught the attention of Thump Records. He signed a 3 year distribution deal and released his next album "Last Man Standing" in 2001. In 2003 Mr Capone E released his third album "Dedicated To The Oldies" which he claims sold over 1 million records through swap meets and discotecas. [3]

He went on to release "Always and Forever" in 2003, which featured the single "I Like It" with Nate Dogg. The album also featured guest appearances from Kokane, Mr. Criminal and other artists from his label Hi Power.

In 2005 he released the albums "A Soilder's Story" and "Ol Skool Music Vol.1 and Vol. 2" with Zapp.

2006-2013, Leave from Thump Records, Independent releases

Money issues began to surface between Mr.Capone-E and Thump, which ultimately led to unpaid royalties to Mr.Capone-E. He was encouraged to leave Thump based on the amount of albums he was selling per release. He left and received all the rights to his music released under Thump.[]

That year Mr. Capone-E released his seventh album, distributed under SMC, Don't get it Twisted, including the hit single "Don't Get it Twisted" ft. Twista,[4] which peaked at #18 on the Top Heatseekers Album Chart, #25 on the Independent Albums Chart and #68 on the Billboard R&B/Rap Albums.[5]

In 2007, Mr.Capone-E signed an independent direct distribution deal with Koch, and released his eighth album, Mr. Capone-E: Dedicated to the Oldies Part II. It peaked at #17 on the Top Heatseekers Albums Chart[5] and #66 on the Billboard R&B/ Hip Hop Album.[5]

In 2009, Capone-E released his ninth album, Diary of a G, including the single "Light my Fire" ft. Snoop Dogg and collaborations with The Game and Glasses Malone, which peaked at #18 on the Billboard Rap Album Charts and #24 on the Top Heatseekers Album Charts.[5] That year he also did a ring entrance song for the WBA Light Welterweight boxing champion at the time, Amir Khan

He continued to release albums independently over the years, releasing the albums "The Blue Album", "Tears of a Soilder".[6]

2014-2016, Attempts to crack the mainstream, No Regrets and For Respect

In 2014 Mr. Capone E started working on two albums, No Regrets, and For Respect. These albums have more of a mainstream sound to his previous albums, collaborating with artists such as Migos, French Montana, Ray J, and {{DJ Mustard]]. To support the albums he released the mixtape "Los Angeles Times". The albums were released in 2016.

2017, 12 Albums in 12 Months

In 2017 he released an album every month. He did this because he felt that he wasn't active musicly over the past few years and needed to release alot of music to become more relevant. [7]

2018-Present, Narco Valley, Auto Biography, and other ventures

After releasing those 12 albums, he chose to focus more on building his label Hi Power and sign more up and coming talent.

On March 13th 2018, he debuted in his first movie "Narco Valley".

He is also currently working on releasing his autobiography "Who Am I" detailing his childhood, his family and ethnicity, and his life and career.

Hi Power Entertainment

Mr. Capone-E founded Hi Power records in 2000 with the release of his debut album. The Independent label launched the career of fellow Chicano rap super star Mr. Criminal. [8]

The label originally was only made up of Chicano rappers in his area, but as the label gained more popularity he signed artists like Bizzy Bone and Layzie Bone of Bone Thugs N Harmony, Lil Flip , MC Eight, Bad Azz, Suga Free among others.
