Charles Martin AKA BUTTABEATS INC is from the Westchester NY area. Born in 1980, like many others he fell in love with Hip Hop during the 90’s. Fast forward to the early 2000’s as a young man, Butta as he became known in those days joined a local collective of MC’s named Up Da River. During this time, he honed his ear for production and developed his rapping skills to where he was producing and writing records. Up Da River became Up North Cartel by 2005 when they released the album Men Apart. By 2009 with the group disbanded Butta and Taj Mili released the album Shine From Within; which was completely produced by Butta. While this project was not a commercial success it was a professional milestone, and a piece of work he remains proud of to this day.
2018 saw Butta return as a solo artist with his debut The Revenge of Charles Martin, again entirely produced and written by him. Releasing 3 singles off the album Climate Change, Dead Already, and Live Stream Butta has gotten his feet wet in an industry that has changed dramatically from when he first began. Inspired by a newfound spirit of independence and individuality that is readily attainable in this new industry BUTTABEATS INC sets forth to make a name for himself as both a producer and rapper.
Since moving to Atlanta a few years back BUTTABEATS INC has developed a versatile sound. Living outside of New York has led to an appreciation for what music means to people in different places. Using these new experiences to inform his music; BUTTABEATS INC has a lot of new music ready to be released in 2019.
