Formed in 2002, Custom Made originally consisted of Sinister Six, Bluff, Element, Skandalous Scoobs and Aneek.
In 2004, they released their debut album, “LA State of Mind” to critical acclaim. Custom Made would later become key players in the LA mixtape scene through their renowned “Street Cinema” series. 2006 saw the group inking with indie label Babygrande Records and the release of their “Sidewalk Mindtalk” compilation.
Soon after the release of Sidewalk Mindtalk, Aneek would leave the group due to personal issues and Six found himself incarcerated for two years. This left Custom Made as a trio of Bluff, Element and Scoobs. After being bestowed Rawkus Next 50 honors by seminal hip-hop brand Rawkus in 2007 the trio returned with their sophomore LP, Original Dynasty on Babygrande in 2008.
2009 saw Custom Made continue the Street Cinema series with the release of “The Lost Weekend” mixtape. After leaving Babygrande in 2009; Custom Made recorded Hi-Def. This year Custom Made linked up with NY label Coalmine Records to drop Hi-Def as a digital release on November 9th. Hi-Def features production from THX, Abstrakt Soundz, Jayem, Animoss (Arch Druids), Terminall and guests Mac Lucci (Hustle Boyz/DPG), Woozy (Brothaz Bent) and the rest of the Custom Made collective.
