Maniac Angel - "Music is the very existence of my soul, for without it death would be imminent."
Maniac Angel was born William Jordan on October 12, 1980 in Chicago, Illinois. Although his family wasn't as gifted in theatrics or anything that had something to do with music, he recalls having a cousin, who was older than him, that was into music. Coming up in the Robert Taylor projects one could imagine where he could acquire such passion for his talent.
As his curiosity begins to catapult him into the world of entertainment it wasn't until he began writing lyrics at the age of 10 that he discovered his true passion for music. Always paying tribute to Keel for showing him how to take his imagination and put it on paper he began trying to solidify his position in the music industry. By the age of 12 he and his best friend formed a rapper duo called The Maniac Twins" where William first decided to call himself Maniac Angel. At the age of 16 he was part of a rap group called "The Boss Elements" who was known for their diverse lyrical delivery. Influenced by the current music trend set by 2Pac, B.I.G.G.I.E., Scarface, Nas, Jay Z, and Bone Thugs it was then when he realized that his passion for music would not fade.
At the age of 17 he found himself being susceptible to the preliminaries of the streets. Three felonies later at the age of 22 he found himself being incarcerated until the age of 30. While incarcerated he practiced his craft and made a name for himself as a writer. Although he was released from incarceration in August of 2010 he didn't start working on his first project entitled "Venom Volume. 1" until 2 weeks prior to it's release on October 5, 2012. Convinced he is ready for what comes with stardom he has caught the ears of Superstars like The Game who confessed that he like Maniac's aggressiveness and works out to some of his songs. Maniac Angel has worked with several Chicago artist such as Petey B, Noble Bland, Antania, Boodust, Artesha Grey, Unique, DeMo, 100Kay, Y-Dot, Jamal Smalls, GHOSTREET and Da Truth and Chicago producers such as 100kay, Shaq, Social Keel, Que Untouchable and Le'aire Black Bass Levy
