Hailing from Jersey City and born in Brooklyn, Randy Nichols, better known by his stage name Ransom, is a rapper that started his career back in 2000 when he, along with some friends, bought a recording studio.

Ransom started working with rapper Hitchcock, forming the A-Team and releasing the mixtape Hardhood Classics in 2004, that featured rappers like Joe Budden, 50 Cent and Stack Bundles.

After a failed record deal with Def Jam, both Hitchcock and Ransom went their separate ways around 2006.
