Sloat Dixon was still attending Mission Bay High when he played in punk bands such as Common Ground and Black Republic. He says he discovered rap after moving to Oakland in 2011 to follow a job offer and ended up answering an ad to play for a rap band. “I had a job opportunity that didn’t work out. But when I was there, I started playing drums for a hip-hop band.”

Dixon went on to drum for Yuma-based cow-punk band the Tramplers. “I want to be the GG Allin and Gwar of hip-hop,” says Dixon. “If they were to have a baby and it came out listening to Wu-Tang Clan, that is Sloat Dixon.”

Dixon also performs freestyle solo, backed by a DJ. His $5 Mixtape was released in 2013.
