Notata

Named as Thomas Paul Joseph from names inside the Christian bible, aka Notata which is latin for “marked”. Born October 28th. Is a musical mastermind with a depressing past. He’s always been in the middle of his parents back and forth for custody rights and has no affection for neither. Living with his mother at around 7-8 she had found a new boyfriend then eventually had a baby with him. After a while the father or Thomas’ “step father” started to be abusive towards his mother and Thomas himself. He says he can still hear his mother cries as she’ll get beaten and no one would come for help. He also states that “there’s been times where I’ll get beaten over little stupid immature things and my mother would just stand in the corner and watch me get beat. It’s one thing watching someone get beat and no one would come for help. He also states that “there’s been times where I’ll get beaten over little stupid immature things and my mother would just stand in the corner and watch me get beat. It’s one thing watching someone get beat and doing something about it. But it’s a totally different story when they just sit there and watch your pain and suffering crying.”This is only the first time this has happened. After this first situation his mother found someone else then eventually had a daughter. Everything was going well at first then over certain little situations or things that he’ll do the father of his step sister would do exactly what the first did. He’d beat Thomas’ mother and himself but only this time he would also go to beat his two other little brothers. Thomas or Notata was around 9-10 when this happened. This ended up to him and his blood little brother to move with his biological father that he’s only lived with when he was 4 years old.“I was a very smart and a wanting to do whatever I thought was interesting kid” Thomas states. He’d started from making duct tape wallets to solving rubik’s cubes  to finger tutting and doing magic tricks. Any new hobby or thing you needed solve. Thomas would devote his life to it learning literally everything about the subject and not stop practicing it till he’s mastered it then move on to the next. One day on youtube he found out about beat production. How to make beats of any genre of music you wanted. Around April of 2016 he started to produce his own beats. Months down the line his best friends boyfriend (Kaution) posted on Snapchat that he needed an engineer. Thomas messages him saying something along the lines of he’d be willing to be it. Kaution sent a song to mix and master the vocals. He was surprised on how well it came out and long story short asked if I wanted to be part of Legion Records.  A Long Island originated group consisting of artists such as J Tesla, Deezy, Izzy, Kaution, R DIA, Lil Wind aka Kamikaze Jay,  Bless the Kid and more. At first it started as Notata just making beats on the side and mixing and mastering all of Legion’s Music as Legion’s first official producer. After a while he decided to record his first track called Mass Alert that is now deleted.

The feeling of people listening to his music and actually liking it made him want to make more music. As far as now all of his singles beats were self produced and vocals was self mix and mastered. Notata strives to make as original music as possible that’s the main reason he’d go on to self produce his musics beats. His musical influences go from Scarlxrd and Cameronazi to Lud Foe and 600 Breezy.

He also finds himself listening to Indie and country folklore.

At the moment Notata is currently working on his first project called “Infinite Black Heart Vol. 1” which is expected to drop on Notata’s birthday October 28th.
