Capital-"X" was born in Brooklyn, New York. His parents migrated to New York from Puerto Rico during the "Great Migration" in the 1950's after Puerto Rico's official status was changed to "Commonwealth". It was a time when discrimination was rampant in the United States and it was no different in New York. As stated by Lolita Lebrón, there were signs in restaurants which read "No dogs or Puerto Ricans allowed". Struggling to find his place throughout his life "X" spent nearly half of his life trapped within the web of the criminal justice system, a fate that is all to common for young Blacks and Latinos in America. No stranger to struggle it was no surprise that "X" took after his uncles who were imprisoned for their political practices within the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party fighting for Puerto Rico's Independence. While serving time in Leesburg State Prison in New Jersey Capital-"X" transformed himself into a prisoners rights activist. Inspired by his uncles and the likes of Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos, George L Jackson, Malcolm X and countless others "X" educated himself to stand up against the very system he felt set out to destroy him and countless others.
A very strong opponent of capitol punishment Capital-"X" now spends most of his time traveling across the US as well as over seas speaking and performing to educate and enlighten the masses on what he considers to be the truth about a corrupt and unjust legal system that he compares to the slave trade of the past. Intertwining facts gathered by years of extensive study in criminology, penology, law, personal experience and the experiences of fellow captives with hip hop music "X" intoxicates audiences with what he calls Raptivism. Calling himself the Voice of the Voiceless a title borrowed from "perhaps the best known Death-Row prisoner in the world", political rights activist/award winning journalist Mumia Abu Jamal, Capital-"X" claims to be the spokesman for over 2.5 million captives held in US prisons. He is a core member of The Anti-Injustice Movement and a member of Guerrilla Republik.

Brent Lee Regan is an Alternative Hip Hop artist from the UK whose lyrical delivery and content is as varied as his musical style. His lyricism is deeply profound and explores issues of personal, political, philosophical and theological importance. He maturely addresses the power struggles and paradigm shifts in the shady world of global elite politics and religion but his message is one of hope because he is committed to change through praxis. Regan is not content to merely dance among the ruins like those in many factions of Hip Hop but rather is dedicated to standing to fight peacefully for justice through his music and front line activism. He has embraced the Christian message of hope and although he is wholly dedicated to his path of Christian Mysticism he is able to separate religion from politics because he understands the corrupt nature of those who seek power at the expense of others. Regan's spiritual message is one of love, acceptance and inclusion and thus it stands in stark opposition to the exploitative motifs propounded by both mainstream corporate rap music and many factions of underground Hip Hop. Regan has an uncompromising commitment to equality, freedom and truth and his authenticity as an individual permeates his hypnotizing Hip Hop. His voice is gentle but captivating, his flow is smooth and precise, and his beats and music are always mesmerizing in a way that is almost spiritual. Brent Lee Regan is the much needed future of Hip Hop.

After only one year, 13,000 copies of Apis Mellifera were downloaded. The album has been a massive success and has already gained Regan an extensive following from all corners of the globe, both within Hip Hop and outside of it. His music and lyricism crosses many divides and his style manages to be true to the universal nature of Hip Hop but resonates with those who are attracted to other genres.
