Count Bass D was born on August 25, 1973, and was raised in The Bronx and Canton Ohio. At the age of four his father, a West Indian minister, encouraged him to play music at his church. Count thereafter learned to play the piano, organ, drums and bass. He then started gaining interest in hip hop, becoming better at rhyming while rapping with friends. In 2008, Count released a sequel album on 1320 Records, to Pre-Life Crisis, called L7 (Mid-Life Crisis), he was 35 at the time of release. In 2010, Count teamed up with old friend, producer and rapper DJ Pocket, and made two collaborative albums in the same year. In the Loop, and Activity, both released on Domination records. In 2011, Count and rapper Insight the Truncator, released a collaborative record called The Risktakers.
Pre-Life Crisis is the debut album by American rapper and record producer Count Bass D, released on September 26, 1995. Its songs mostly demonstrate Count Bass D's capability of playing multiple instruments (although several other musicians play instruments on this album), and the songs mainly consist of saxophones, smooth basslines, 808 drums, and electric guitars. Because of the album's progressive styles, it was difficult to market and it soon went out of print. It has, however, received a cult following among underground hip-hop fans.
