Envision Indiana, and most will see only vast farmland and cornfields. Mention South Bend, Indiana without speaking of Notre Dame, and they have no idea what you are talking about. Even harder to comprehend is Indiana''s hip-hop flavor.
One MC from the "Bend" is out to prove that it''s not where you are from but the skills and determination you possess to make it in the rap game. MILLION (aka Endiana Jonez) has no doubt in his mind that determination will eventually bring you to your goal. Born Eddie Lee Miller Jr. to Reverend Eddie Miller Sr. and Diana Miller, MILLION, an ex-fitness trainer, has been performing since he was five years old. MILLION explains, "People from church would bribe me into singing using candy and cookies." When asked why he chose rhyming over singing he responds, "I found I could express myself better through rhyming. I''m also very dramatic so my stage presence comes natural."
After hearing MILLION''S demo, and A & R rep from New York convinced him to make a move to the East Coast. He has since shared the stage with the likes of Chuck D (of Public Enemy), the Wu-Tang Clan, Canibus, Outkast, and Black Moon just to name a few. He has performed at the Urban Box Office Online Hip-Hop Awards and on The Source''s Unsigned Hype Tour. These achievements opened the door for MILLION to do "The Source''s Iced Down Mountain Dew Tour of ''99."
MILLION was featured on the title track "Block Shaker Anthem" from the "SOURCE BLOCK SHAKER 2000 TOUR" CD which featured other performers such as Def Squad, 95 South, Too Short, Tela, and Jayo Felony. "Block Shaker Anthem" earned MILLION ASCAP''s coveted 2001 New Artist Award. Other projects include a song released with London R&B sensation Amel Larrieux''s label. MILLION also makes his movie debut in the newly released home video "Bling, Bling." In the movie he shares a two minute scene with the late "Big L." When asked what he is trying to bring to the game he merely states, "I want people to associate Indiana with MILLION, not MILLION with Indiana."
