One Gud Cide

Biography

One Gud Cide was hip-hop duo based out of Fort Worth, Texas. Formed in 1991 by Twisted Black and Evil Seed, the group is revered among many modern rappers for their pioneering approach to portraying urban violence through hip hop.

The group's initial progress was slowed when Twisted Black was shot in the face and lost half of his jaw in what he claimed was an assassination attempt. By 1995, the group had achieved underground success with the album Look What The Streets Made, which sold 10,000 copies in less than 30 days. The group's career was interrupted once again when Twisted Black, whose real name is Tommy Burns, was sentenced to three years in prison on a parole violation.

Work on the group's follow-up album Contradictions was interrupted by that incident. Contradictions was finished and eventually released in 1999 on Suave House Records. It included contributions from hip hop mainstays like Eightball and UGK.

Meanwhile, Twisted Black was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
