Erick Sermon (born November 25, 1968) is an American rapper, musician, and record producer.
Sermon is best known as half of late-1980s–1990s hip hop group EPMD and for creation work. He was born in Bay Shore, New York, and currently resides in Islandia, New York.
The Green-Eyed Bandit also made multiple solo records and records. He started recording solo albums for Def Jam in 1993; in 1997, he rejoined EPMD. EPMD disbanded a second time in 1999. In 2000, Sermon moved over to J Records, and released the album Music the next year. The album’s first single, “Music”, featured guest vocals from Marvin Gaye, which Sermon supposedly culled from unreleased recordings seen in a little record shop in London. Sermon’s second album on J Records, React, was launched in 2002. In a June 30, 2004 interview with HipHopDX.com, Sermon told music journalist Bayer Mack, “Things weren’t right at J Records. Clive Davis and them do not believe in promotion. When Puffy had Bad Boy at Arista, it was him doing all the [promotional] work.” He also stated Busta Rhymes and Wyclef Jean had similar problems with J Records. The record was powered by the single “Feel It” (which featured a sample of reggae/R&B singer Sean Paul), a tune which became a success in the United States. Within an interview, he said that he was really going to step aside and attempt to get coming artists in the spotlight. Yet, Sermon has not ceased in the music business, as he produced the tune “Goldmine” on Busta Rhymes’ record, The Big Bang in 2006. Shortly after, Sermon has recorded “Don’t Make No Sense” with Def Squad. He also collaborated with Redman and made several tunes on the album Red Gone Wild while also making an appearance with Def Squad member Keith Murray.
