Current members: Prince Charming Chazz (aka Chazz Keener) is backed by the Charm City Underground, which consists of a backup singer and DJ who go by the monikers William Hazze and Unkie Unkie Blamm, respectively.
Founded in: 2002
Influenced by: Dr. Dre, Eminem, Metallica, N.W.A., Elvis Presley and the notoriously vulgar punk singer G.G. Allin.
Notable: The Hampden resident and self-proclaimed prince of hardcore rap retired late last summer from the local music scene. But now PCC is back and ready to take on Baltimore's bars and clubs once again. His coming-out-of-retirement/Raptilian Records 7-inch release show is tomorrow at the Ottobar.
Quotable: PCC on his decision to perform again: "I'm back because I've been seeing a lot of weak rhyming by a lot of weak rappers. I'm back to claim what was mine before I gave it up."
