BuffaloHorse Eastman a.k.a "Buff tha Stuff" was named by spirits through a medicine man shortly after he was born december 25 1976 in Rosebud South Dakota, his dad is a fullblooded Sicangu Lakota and his mother is 1/2 navajo and 1/2 Warm Springs/Wasco. This six foot five and nearly three hundred pound "Warrior Chief" was raised by the American Indian movement and has been to many protests, demonstrations, rallys, even riots. At the age of 5 he realized the power of word while standing on the potium infront of a gymnasium full of Aimsters during the "Longest walk for survival" from Berkley to DC. He got up there grabbed the mic and said "I am walking for my future generations". War crys and the feeling of Native Pride filled the gym. He still participates in his Native ways by praying in Sweatlodges, Longhouses, and attendes Sundances and Pow-wows during the summertime, someday he''ll go on another long walk but until then he is embracing a new culture that makes him happy and keeps him very busy as well.
He liked Megadeath first until he felt the lyrical strength of Mac Dre, NWA, Luke Skyywalker, Above the Law, Sir Mix-A-lot, Too $hort and E-40 & The Click. He has been writing rhymes since 1988, now listens to underground hip-hop and he still loves rocking the mic. This CD is all killer and no filler, stuffed with complex, poetic wordplay and bone crushing beats, taking Native hip-hop/rap music to another level and reflects on the negative impact that sex,drugs,hip-hop,& alcohol has on reservations that are economically parallel to the worst ghettos of America. This groundbreaking CD is an instant underground hip-hop classic. Production is mostly done by professional skate boarder Karl Hubble, Buffs'' childhood friend FrybreadNbeatz and has that northwest underground hip-hop feel to it while adding musical sounds from all over the world for a truly unique sounding album that everyone can appreciate. Buff tha Stuff has traveled the world touring with his crew called "Big Chiefin" they are one of the hottest Native Hip-hop bands out and are about to hit the road to promote his and JSK solo albums at the CULTURECLASH: Native Hip-hop & Reggae Festival.
Big Chiefin Records is a native owned independent label started in Portland Oregon by Buff tha Stuff who moved to Warm Springs and began putting on concerts with promoter JSK. They started recording at Jodes''FrybreadNbeats, along with Jimmy the gent Thorp, LittleBull, Chilly-C , 0020 the Restless Savage, Night Rider & Native Mist. They soon recorded the first installment to be on the label and never looked back. "We put on numerous shows, performed live, and sold CD''s in Canada, the States, and Europe to help Big Chiefin Records'' expand and become a major factor in the music business. We started out battling and freestyling at cyphers and parties now we do it for a living to support our kids, eventually we''ll have a big circus tent that we can turn into a mobile festival then we can bring CultureClash all over the planet but until then we are as underground as it gets"
