Biografía de MC Ceja

Alberto Mendoza, real name of the reggaeton/spanish rap MC Ceja, was born on February 15, 1978 in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. He was raised both in Brooklyn and Puerto Rico alongside his younger brother and sister.
El Cejon started in the music business at around age 13 in talent shows and local town parties. At a young age, he was already able to compose songs to make fun of his teachers and fellow classmates. He was able to breakthrough in the genre after meeting reggaeton producer, DJ Eric, over the telephone. Ceja played one of his songs for Eric and what happened next was only the beginning for the new Puerto Rican hip hop king. Ceja released his first song “Dame ese Blunt”, back in the day when recordings were made on underground cassettes. Ceja was then able to appear in productions such as “Hip Hop Reggae NRT Mix,” DJ Eric's Street Style Vol.1 and Vol.2, and DJ Eric Industry Vol. 3-5.” After the release of “DJ Eric Industry 3”, in 1995, Ceja launched his first album as a soloist called “Luz Solar,” selling over fifty thousand copies, which was a considerable amount for a Latin rapper at the time. His hit single “Confusion” was part of this production and was number 1 in the local charts for at least 10 weeks.

In his collaborations with DJ Eric, MC Ceja meets Lito MC Cassidy and Polaco, and later on in their careers they form the group known as “Los Tres Mosqueteros.” At the time Lito, Polaco and Ceja worked together for DJ Eric’s "Industry Vol.4: The Return”, a lyrical war started between them and another notorious reggaeton group, The Noise, which at the time had artists such as Baby Rasta & Gringo and Bebe. In 1998, before the release of “Los 3 Mosqueteros,” Ceja was able to produce another album as a soloist named “Todo ha cambiado”, with another hit single “Te Invito al Party”. Soon thereafter, the group split and they started a war among themselves.

In 1999, Ceja is encarcerated and stays in jail for a period of two years. Upon his release, he kept working with DJ Eric on his third album, “Boricua State of Mind,” released in 2001, featuring the single with Wisin & Yandel, “Desnudate”. He also collaborated with Pina Records, for “La Conspiracion Vol. 1”, “The Company” and “La Conspiracion Vol 2,” with hits such as “Yeah Yeah” and “Dile a El.” Ceja also came out strong with his rough hip hop lyrics in Daddy Yankee’s “El Cartel Vol. 2.” MC Ceja had the opportunity to record with worldwide known artists such as Tempo, in the production “Game Over.” He has also recorded with artists like Ivy Queen, Big Boy, Baby Rasta, Special Ed, Yaviah, Getto and Gastam, among others. Ceja also appeared in various artist compilations such as “Majestic,” “La Mision 1 – 3,” “DJ Frank: Time to Kill,” “The Cream Vol.4” “Warriors 2,” “Wise Da' Gansta: Da Moda,” “Dream Team,” and “Sopranos.”

In 2003, searching for a different type of market and style to his music, Ceja moves to United States and is blessed with having a son and a daughter, marking a time in his life were responsibility and achievement are a top priority. In 2005, his most recent work includes collaborations with Cuban Link in “Buddha’s Family Vol.2: Desde la Prision.” Ceja appeared in this production with three songs, among them his single, “Mr. Conflicto” and demonstrated once again that he is one of the kings of microphone.

Ceja is currently promoting a mixtape that he put together and is recording for albums, like “Los Veteranos.” He is also working on his fourth production as a soloist called “Mr. Conflicto,” which should be in stores in 2007, with the best in rap, hip-hop, reggaeton, and dirty south. It is packed with bold lyrics that compliment Ceja’s bilingual flow and stamina. Stay tuned to the page to get the latest on MC Ceja’s, his next album and his upcoming shows!!!!!
