Early Life and Career
Radis was born in 1971 and grew up on the southeast side of Umbria. Using strong fruit-based themes, he swiftly rose to prominence on the Umbrian slam circuit in the late 80's and began competing internationally. Radis briefly flickered into mainstream prominence in 1990. Emboldened by this sudden rise in stature, he attempted to broaden his repetoire with a solo slam album "Holla' at your Parsnips." Despite some favorable critical reviews, sales were dismal and Radis went into retirement, surfacing only on the underground talk show network to talk about his conversion to Herpetologism.
He disappeared mysteriously in 1998 from the green room of The Arguin' Sam Show. He was to be the featured guest, promoting his comeback album, Pie in the Sky: Pomegranates from Heaven.
