Cormega aka Mega hails from Queensbridge New York & is on his way to Australia & New Zealand to celebrate the anniversary of his debut release & 15 years of highly regarded hip hop releases.

Cormega is an emcee that has been highly regarded for powerful lyricism & ability to give descriptive accounts of inner city life, derived from his own experiences& struggles in the NYC streets during the 80s & 90s.

With a solid collection of albums and collaborations since his first full album was released in 2001 he has made a serious name for himself across New York & globally. MEGA has gained a lot of respect worldwide for his skilful lyricism & music, with the knowledge and understanding of both the street life and the struggles of young people hustling on the streets of New York and relatable to audiences in every city.

The Realness hit the Number 1 on the Billboard Charts [Urban Artist: Hip Hop / RnB + Best Independent Album]. It stayed #1 for multiple consecutive weeks and totalled 24 weeks in top placement by category!

Following The Realness, The True Meaning was the first independent album to ever win a Source Award for Independent Album of the Year.

Cormega then went on to record “The Testament” which featured in Ego Trips Book of Rap, and was listed as one of the best albums in history not released.

Mega was received The “Impact Artist” Award, in the Underground Artist Awards 2004 for his contribution and impact to hip hop scene and genre.
