Read about this dude who I seen come up through the true ranks and NO ONE can tell me different. Pumpkinhead (also known as P.H., born Robert Diaz on Sept. 17th, 1975) is #hiphop artist of #Latino descent. He grew up in the Park Slope area of #Brooklyn, #NewYork with his mother and younger sister.
#Pumpkinhead started as a #bboy at age 10. He began writing rap lyrics during his 6th grade language arts class after hearing the song "Nightmares" by Dana Dane. He also stated he was influenced by #Redman and the Leaders of the New School, as well as Doug E. Fresh. He also cites his experience of meeting #2Pac and witnessing his ability to write and record songs on the spot as a motivating factor in his emceeing.
Pumpkinhead got a break in #NewYorkCity hip hop salute to @koolboblove of the Stretch & #Bobbito Show on WKCR.
Pumpkinhead's breakthrough single was 1997's "Dynamic," which became a staple of #mixtapes in the late 1990s.
