C-zar Wisemen Bio
On October 22, 1982 Bill and Naomi Perkins, who later divorced, gave birth
to a son named Derek Perkins in a small college town called Charlottesville,
Virginia. Derek has a younger sister, as well as had an older brother who
died in 1993 at the age of 19 from a mysterious Four Wheel ATV accident.
Derek managed to graduate from Monticello High School in
Charlottesville in 2001. During the years there, he suffered lots of verbal
abuse from the teaching staff in front of and behind his back as well as
verbal and physical confrontation with fellow classmates. This led to in-and
–out of school suspensions.
To escape the madness, Derek would unwind in his music collection,
which later became his curriculum and inspiration to want to express himself
writing down his feelings about what he was going through. Prior to many
failed attempts on creating a writing structure, a day before his 17th birthday
it all came together on paper. The start of honing his craft. He started out
writing poems in his own style that he later named “poetic memoirs” and
later converted to writing raps that he studied and learned how to do. Always
being a fan of rap/hip-hop, he made it his personal mission to study the street
art form and it’s history.
Wanting to have the skill set of a typical New York City M.C.
lyricist, Derek felt the need to come up with a distinct identity that captured
who he was and is. C-zar Wisemen is what he researched and created. Later
in April 3 2015, he went to court to legally have his name changed from
stage name to his daily life name. The name stands for ruler of wisdom wit
personalities of 7. Each letter in the last name “Wisemen” describe a
personality trait that the artist possesses. W stands for warrior, I stands for
intelligent, S stands for smooth, E stands for educated, M stands for mean, E
stands for emperor and N stands for notorious. The second E for emperor
relates back to the original meaning for his first name “Czar” with or without
the hyphen. The letter G is the seventh letter in the alphabet, which is the
first letter of the spelling of the word of “God”, which C-zar feels he is on a
daily basis feeling liberated and completed. His first name is taken from the
Russian noun. The last name is biblical. To help further his identity, he has
his hair in dreadlocks, showing that it is his crown. His personal logo is a
lion, which was designed specifically for him by his father.
While jumping from one job to the next , being in and out of the
local jail in Charlottesville ( due to his temper ), along with few demos made
he managed to complete his first album after networking with local rappers
and producers. The LP is called “Tha New Testament”. It was released on
July 2005. The album is under his label, “Philosophy Entertainment, LLC”.
Ten months earlier, C-zar released the first single off the album entitled “ I
Hold My Own”. The album also featured his group Tha Philosophers, which
featured himself, Jaco Sage King and Polaris.
C-zar always had a passion for acting, first doing some drama in
high school, then doing one day of extra work on the set of ”Evan Almighty”
then joining an acting class which was taught by David Webster of Webster
Studios in Charlottesville, VA. Training in improv led to his performance in
two short films and one indie feature. The first is a comedy short in 2007
called “Super Dog” directed by David Webster. The second in the same year
is called “Wetwork” a short action film directed by Jason Shifflett and indie
feature called “ Ever Seen The Rain?” also in 2007 directed by David
Webster that was never completed, roles acted all under his given name.
C-zar self – published his first poetry book entitled “Poetic
Philosophy” under his given name released on September 2007. C-zar
wanted to present Tha Philosophers in a sole project. In November 2008,
narrowed down to a duo C-zar and Polaris teamed up again and released a
single called “Abortion”. The single was supposed to have been off an indie
dark comedy film about abortion that was never made.
Now living in Los Angeles,CA C-zar completed his second LP
while being in the city of angles called “Real Niggaz” which was released in
November 2012. The first single off it was “ I’m Down 4 Whatever”
featuring Renate’ Page. Originally released on May 2007 for the album, but
re-released again 2012. In 2015 C-zar released another single called
“Everywhere I Go” , which was taken off the track list for the forthcoming
third LP but will not appear on it. Ten year’s after the release of the poetry
book “Poetic Philosophy” C-zar released the sequel “Revolutionary” in
March 2018 through “Philosophy Entertainment” in his new legal name as
the author. That same month C-zar released his EP titled “Revolution”
featuring the single “50 States”, along with another current single “Heat” in
July 2018 from the forthcoming third studio album “White Amerikkka’z
Nightmare” due out soon. C-zar Wisemen’s main goal is make an incredible
impact in rap/hip-hop music and help along with other’s within his race to
make a revolution for black people forever.

Lyrics of Fury
Poetic Philosophy is a collection of poetry that is based on feelings and things that I have gone through as a hip hop artist, a businessman, up and coming actor, and poet. As well as tackling issues that are going on in this country and around the world that needs a change for the better.
Revolutionary is by rap artist C-zar Wisemen and is the follow up to it’s precursor Poetic Philosophy under his former legal name of Derek Perkins. This poetry book is a poetic autobiography that is inspired by real life feelings & experiences. The sequel gets deeper into the author’s background with his emotional balance that leads to his many thoughts on who he was and still is added with his views on the world effecting black people. Subject matters that are tackled are his thoughts on the entertainment industry, religion, self-reliance, heartbreak and romance, storytelling and crooked politics are other issued addressed. This author is hopeful that the writing’s will spark the minds of millions of black people in the United States and around the world to fight against white supremacy and rise to greatness.
