It appears that on the 4th day of most month’s, many entertainers and great leaders are born. August 4th Obama was born, September 4th Beyonce was born, December 4thJay-Z was born and so on. On November 4th, another star can be added to that tradition. This day not only marks greatness, but it also was the birth and beginning of Algemon Winfrey, also known as 1000 Bars. He was Born and raised in Flint, Michigan, one of the toughest places on earth to learn how to grow and survive. 1000 had experienced and seen a lot at a very young age. These experiences both good and bad, helped mode him into the individual he is today.

Riding around with his older brother in the flashiest cars at just 8 years old, with the speakers blasting such artist in his ear like Nas, Rakim, Big L, Jay-Z and Tupac was when Bars discovered he wanted to pursue music as a serous career. As the years progressed, 1000 persistently continued writing and rapping. He competed against other rappers in his neighborhood and city, as well as performed at various talent shows and venues. Bars and a couple of his close friends went on to create their own record label, Family Over Riches Entertainment. Opening up for different artists such as Fabolous, Too-Short, The Clipse, Ludacris and D-12 to name a few, 1000 gained exposure and familiarity in the music industry and popularity in his city.

1000 now known for his music was also well-known and respected in the streets as an intelligent hustler. He was labeled this because of his street wittiness and credibility. He was wisely able to hold his “weight” in the streets accumulating money while still attending college. Bars first love apart from music was basketball, but due to the quick money he was getting in the streets he turned down an out of state athletic scholarship and attended Eastern Michigan University to stay close to home. In December 2004, Algemon received his Bachelors of Business Administration in Marketing.

Currently 1000 has learned how to master his artistry. He has perfected his craft and has made a unique distinctive sound of his own. 1000 music is edgy, urban, hip and street. It symbolizes the struggles, pressures and pain of today’s society. Anyone could connect to his music from people involved in the streets to those who live in the hood; while giving them inspiration, motivation and hope to make it out of the streets, be successful and achieve their goals. 1000 has the ability and talent lyrically to tell vivid story’s by painting descriptive images that are relatable to people around the nation. Breezing through high school, succeeding in a couple court cases and obtaining a Bachelors of Business all with ease; 1000 has already began his journey on the road to success.

1000 is currently shopping for the right deal. He has turned down several record contracts and is patiently waiting for the right major labels backing. With his single “I’m Feelin’ Myself,” produced by Emperor Searcy of BME and Bengi and “Money Keep Calling”, produced by Marease “Mo” Cantey currently spinning everywhere, from national, local and XM Satellite radio stations, even in the nightlife to energized club crowds, Bars has gained a tremendous diverse following in the Midwest that both follow and support Family Over Riches Ent. He has witnessed the product of his own success.

Along with “I’m Feelin’ Myself,” 1000 has also released 3 solo albums, 1 group project and numerous mix tapes. His solo albums Live Young Die Rich, Dope Boy 4 Life and From the Streets have all to date sold approximately over 35,000 copies and sound-scans. Moreover, his group’s project “Meet the Fam”, was also estimated to have sold more than 5,ooo street copies. 1000 has been gaining even more exposure while appearing on Worldstarhiphop.com, magazine spreads and being a regional spokesperson and representative for the up and coming cigar wrap company “Ballers Choice”.

“I’m ready for the industry after years of dedication and mistakes I [have] finally defined myself. I feel like music is a blessing for me, I’m comfortable with it and I enjoy it. One way or the other, I’m going to make my presence felt in this music game.”
