Macdon the Fifth is an American rapper from Hollis Queens New York. Macdon became familiar with his talent in the basement of a friend who had DJ equipment named Dollar Bill. He began playing around with the mic and some beats and penned a few rhymes. It turned out so well that he began to see a future in music. Another song eventually caught the ear of Jam Master Jay (R.I.P.) but the timing wasn’t right and the song was passed on. Around this time he connected with Zodiac Fishgrease who was an apprentice on Video Music Box with Ralph Mcdaniels. This is when he began to catch on and got his first taste of fame. This continued attention and his musical versatility eventually landed Macdon a deal with Warner Bros. Records. Unfortunately the deal went south.
Macdon then took a break from music to start a family but he couldn’t stay away from the industry for long and soon found himself in the studio with his producer friend Beyond. He made connections with 50 Cent and Uncle Murda and landed himself a second deal with Fubu Records. Fubu was a hot urban clothing brand making a move into the music industry with a compilation album featuring major and up and coming artists. Macdon was rewarded with a 150k signing bonus from the label. In spite of this he didn’t receive the “push” that many thought he would have.
