In the summer of 1988, Scott Harding (a.k.a. Scotty Hard), a native of Canada, heard the first rebellious wails of saxaphone on P.E.'s "Rebel Without A Pause," permanently altering his destiny. With 10 years involvement in the independent, alternative music in Vancouver, B.C. under his belt, Scotty packed his bags and moved to New York City with the hopes of joining the new hip hop revolution flourishing there.
