Speedy "Sir Speedy" is the OWNER/C.E.O./PRESIDENT of "P.O.W. RECORDS" Speedy has always been involved with music, ever since he can remember. At 5 years of age he was spining on his head and at 7 years of age he was pop locking to all the great music of the Early and Mid 80's Disco and hip hop music is what SPEEDY was DANCING/BREAKING to. Never for getting his roots he also would watch and dance to Cumbia's. SIR SPEEDY would always remember the many people around him that were so musically involved including his grandmother who would SING and play almost every insturment that you can think of and SPEEDY would watch. SPEEDY seen his calling and there and then is when SPEEDY new who he was an ARTIST a person who loved music and HIP HOP was his choice. The idea for a RECORD LABEL came to SPEEDY in 1995 while still in high school many family and friends new he could rap so SPEEDY was always asked to rap and to record personal dedications for friends/family and even strangers would ask for a song. So SPEEDY decided to do so and also to perform on stage. It was after many songs and performances people would ask SPEEDY are you signed? and what's the name of your RECORD LABEL?SPEEDY had a name but no LABEL to go with it. So after many ideas SPEEDY came up with being a poet in this war, you know this world and said to himself you know I am a "POET OF WAR" this world is a war and i'm just a poet writing about it so then when people would ask him what's the name of your LABEL SPEEDY would say P.O.W. RECORDS. El Mirage Arizona is where SPEEDY was raised. He had many influences growing up some good but the truth is out side the home many where bad so he had to roll with the punches. It was many of the negitive influences that he had is what made him more aware to how bad life can really be and was so pressured and involved with the wrong group of people but where SPEEDY came from that's just the way it was you know the way of life. SPEEDY took them many positive and negitive situations he had been involved with and wrote them down in the form of poetry expressing himself on paper and putting them into his songs people around him were very supportive to the messages in his songs, so family and friends around him would incourage him more and more to continue doing it. In early 1996 Speedy recorded two songs both tracks were produced by Iroc Mr Iroc now know as "ROCA DOLLA" and in 1997 SPEEDY had his first two perfesionally recorded songs released to the public "4 DEM PLYAZ/WEST COAST GHOST" 2 of Arizonas most banging tracks till this day. In 97 that was a big deal do to the fact that he was Chicano and had distribution and was the only artist from arizona besides M.C. MAGIC that had product in the record store to help support his hip hop career. It was then that people where knocking on Speedy's door for whatever it is that they can do to help him get to where he needed to be and that was in the music industry's hip hop mainstream. From 1995 till 2006 Speedy has 10 albums under his belt. The listing of Albums that you can catch SPEEDY ON. and many more to come. 1. SINGLE-4 DEM PLAYAZ 2. VIDEO-CALI SWANGIN "Volume-2" 3. M.C.

I'm always on the hustle too many and so many spots to name but if your looking you'll find me.
Too many to mention. "MOSTLY LIFE" but its like this I love all types of music I dont ever limit my ears to one style of music I believe setting limits to what you hear is only setting limitations to who it is you can really become as an artist. "YOU FEEL ME"
I JUST LOVE MUSIC. MUSIC IS MY LIFE I LIVE THIS LIFE FOR REAL.
