Halfa – Intermission

Tyler’s (HalfA’s) background in rhyming began when he was a junior in High School. He honed his skill by freestyling and battling with peers in the hallways at lunchtime. Impressing the crowds with witty metaphors he defeated opponent after opponent, and was deemed a “lunchtime legend”. After taking a break from rapping, in 2010 Tyler and his friend started a movement called “MynORity Music Group”, which is a branch off of his friends company, MynORity Apparel & Co. He has been creating music rocking shows ever since. Thus far he has released 2 mixtapes, and opened up for the well known Portland Hip-Hop festival (POH-HOP 12). He just recently released his third project, Intermission, in the Summer of 2011. His single entitled “Who Knew” is generating a buzz for the release of Intermission. He is eager to get Intermission out to the public because unlike his previous efforts, the majority of the music will be original material, and listeners will really get a chance to hear the art that goes into his music. Hungry and determined to be amongst the best, he chases down his dreams, so he can live them out.

Tyler Monk grew up in La Grande OR with his sister and mother, the latter of whom battled heavy drug addictions and abusive boyfriends. Witnessing this as a young boy had a negative effect on Tyler and his social life. He would always search for attention for the lack of it that he recieved at home. He constantly caused trouble in the classroom and struggled with his grades. At the age of 12, he was forced to move up to Portland, OR with his father. As if there were no change at all, his poor behavior followed him to his new city. When he got to high school he hit rock bottom, failing nearly every class his freshman at Benson Tech, not to mention being suspended on three occasions. It was a long and deep conversation with his father that got through to him. He realized that he wanted more for himself and was determined to be the first male in his family to graduate college with a degree. His passion for playing basketball also fueled his motivation to becoming the best student and young man he could be.

After he graduated high school Tyler’s main focus was basketball and he pursued a college basketball scholarship at Central Washington University. After his senior year in college he began to invest his time with inner city youth. He graduated from Central Washington University with a Bachelors of Science in Recreation Management. Since 2009 Tyler has been working with at risk youth in the Portland and Vancouver area as the assistant Director of the Boys & Girls Club of SW Washington and Learning Assistant Program coordinator at Gaiser Middle School. He continues to speak with youth about making good decisions and telling them to think about their future.
