Celly Cel grew up in the Bay Area in Vallejo, CA. He released his first single on his independent record label Realside Records in 1992 called 'Lifestyle of a Mack'. He sold all his records and his name started ringing around the Bay. He then released a 4 song maxi singled called 'Funk 4 Life' in 1993. E40 lived around the corner from Celly Cel and he had just released the new Click album. He and Celly Cel were already homies and when E40 and B-Legit went to Celís house to hear his music it was a 'DONE DEAL'. A few days later Celly Cel was signed to Sick Wid it Records. He released his first album nationwide in 1994. He shot his first video called 'Hot Sunny Day' and got major airplay on B.E.T. It was official, Celly Cel was now a Rap Star. He released his next album in 1996 which was his biggest selling record. This record featured a song called 'It's goin' down' which became an instant classic. This was his second video that aired on B.E.T and it still gets radio play to this day. He released his next album in 1998 called ìThe ìGî Filezî. This was his last album on Sick Wid It/Jive Records. He and Sick Wid It/Jive Records parted on good terms. Celly Cel just felt like it was time to start his own record label. He started his independent company and decided to call it 'Realside Records' because that's where it all began. He released his first album under the label called 'Deep Conversation' in 2000. This officially put Realside on the map. Later that year he released a compilation called ìLive from the Ghettoî featuring the hottest underground rappers from all over the nation. April 4th, 2006 Celly Cel's latest album Slaps, Straps & Baseball Hats dropped, featuring Mr. Fab, The Game, Lil Flip, Turf Talk, Luni Coleone, Levitti, Sean-T, DC, and more.
