The story of Sappaveli is pretty simple to tell. I am a DJ/MC/ MR TURNUP!! I started by accident honestly and I was living in Tallahassee and hanging with Hollywood Shane. I went to a few parties but never rocked a crowd. I witnessed Bigga Rankin as a teen in my city for years and always thought that I could link up one day and hopefully become as popular as he. This was a mere dream until Hollywood asked me to play one night in a fill in role to talk on the mic at a local Tallahassee house party. Back then in 97, we used two home cd players and a mixer with a mic and rocked a few house parties til we were well known in the city. It was less than a year before the local T-town clubs gave us a call to perform. We tore the roof off of every last club whether their was 1 person or 1,000including the Moon!! We linked up with Bigga and Cool Runnings in 98 in Daytona and later played at a club cool runnings was playing at in tallahassee. WE BUST DA PLACE!! Reggae, hip hop, r n b you name it and we were on the scene! It was that night that Bigga hired THE YOUNG GUNS!!
I have now been an emcee with the Runnings for over 14 years easily and my loyalty is in this family of DJ's.
My mission and goal is simple: TURNUP THE PARTY BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!!! I have turned myself from the normal emcee into the SHOWSTYLE emcee which displays my love for music on stage through dancing, crowd chants and pure high adrenaline to any club owner who can take the charge! I have been awarded many accolades From my music career and I am only beginning.
I have performed duos and raps as well with local artists and also Total Kaos . I am known as Sappaveli aka Keiser Sose. The Sappaveli comes from a combo of my last name and I have always been told in life that I am the twin of The late Tupac shakur, so Hollywood just combined the name and named me Sappaveli and this has always stuck!! Keiser sose came from the movie Usual Suspects and I like to compare myself to this because of my humbleness. I am very loud on stage and I run a crowd but after the show is done...., poof.... I'm gone underground or on social media. Not to be heard from until the next show but just like him...I AM AND WILL BE LEGEND!!!
