: CephGawd hails from the nation's capital, Washington, DC. Spending his formative years shuffling between the city's NE and SE and attending The Duke Ellington school of the Arts. Ceph may have one of the most distinctive and unique sounds coming out of the DMV. Mixing a wide array of influences and sounds Ceph paints sonic landscapes for any rapper or emcee to crank over. This sound has landed Ceph production credits on both local and not so local projects, producing tracks for his own collective SMG (Sons of Men and Gods) VA's Bucky Malone, and Maryland's Kelow. His first solo EP was featured in the UK's Big Cheese Magazine and the video for Kelow's "Jiggly Puff", which he produced, premiered on the Billboard top 40 site. Things are looking good for Ceph as he plans to expand his catalog.
