Rhyming since the age of 8, to spitting lyrics in his teens, SimmonsBoi did not pursue a musical career until the end of his term with the U.S. Army. After serving five years in the military, he became reacquainted with the art of rapping.

In May 2015, Simmonsboi released his first mixtape “Just a Hobby”, under the stage name “SimmonsBoi”—inspired by his life as a soldier and being addressed by his surname. “Just a Hobby” is available for download at DatPiff.com and Reverbnation.

 Simmonsboi quotes, “Most people are very passionate about their hobbies, and we use them to escape the demands in life”. “This is how I treat rap. It’s just a hobby… but it’s also my therapy.”

SimmonsBoi as of 2016 is a new signee of Long Time Coming Entertainment. Simmonsboi is now working on his next project “Substance Abuse “ which features his first single “Focus”.

Terrell T-Rex Simon In His Image

Terrell “T-REX” Simon

“IN HIS IMAGE”

Vocal powerhouse and Troy, NY native Terrell ‘T-REX’ Simon started delivering soul-stirring music at the age of six, when he discovered his gift singing in the church. He got his professional start in New York City while performing with a traveling choir throughout the region. In 2003, his connections led him to platinum-selling singer-songwriter/producer Lyfe Jennings who took him on the road with his act. T-Rex began touring with such major artists as John Legend, Beyonce, Anthony Hamilton, and Musiq SoulChild. As a huge fan of Dave Hollister, coming up he adopted a similar sound, patterning his voice after the vocal sensation, and later touring with him as a backup singer. His TV appearances include Jimmy Kimmel, Good Morning America, David Letterman, and Jay Leno, 106 & Park, and The Monique show, among others. The pivotal moment in his career came when he appeared on MTV Unplugged with Neyo, which gained mass exposure for him.

 After sharing stages with everyone including Wyclef Jean and Mario, T-Rex started managing artists like Lyfe Jennings, and road-managing vocalist Shaliek while mentoring and developing him and other talents such as Day 26. In 2015, he teamed with artist, producer, and singer Lamar Casey who helped executive produce and co-wrote his debut album. T-Rex also teamed with Bernie Stevenson (Isyss, Kelly Rowland), who took his riveting raw vocals and created the soul-stirring track, “In His Image”. The new EP, released Christmas of 2015, is set to be T-Rex’s launch pad for a fresh start. Entitled “Hash tag 8 ‘New Beginnings'” (referencing a biblical number for just that-a new beginning) the songs reflect exactly where he is in life.

 He brings to the industry his own musical genre, ‘R&G’ for rhythm and gospel, which beautifully infuses his natural church boy upbringing with his love of Hip Hop. “In His Image” is in rotation at Music Choice and gaining more radio play daily. The song’s immediate appeal points to a fast growing musical phenomenon (exampled by 54,000 Instagram followers within the first week of its release). His music is available on every digital platform including Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, iHeart Radio, XM Satellite, and SoundCloud, with hard copy CDs available on Amazon.com.

 Information on T-Rex’s tours, single releases, and more can be found throughout social media via Instagram (Trex0506), Facebook (Trexsings), and Twitter (Trex0506).

tour in the late summer of 2012 VT will be building his fan base, performing in the hottest night spots and climbing the charts with hits such as “Turn Me Up”, “Do it Better”, “LiL Big Dawgin” and “Boss Life”.

When asked whose music or style does VT’s album favor the likes of, his reply was “a mix of Meek Mills, Future, Wale and Rick Ross”. “Their style of music is catered to all mankind, but is certified by their knowledge of the streets and leverage in the music industry” says VT.

DaVonte Townsend professionally known as VT was born in the South in 1993 and is a breath of fresh air to the world of hip hop. From his catchy lyrical phrases to his head bobbing hooks, he is the latest addition to the ranks of talented hip hop artists from the Dirty South.

Beginning his lyrical journey, some years ago, he was a young teenage male dealing with life’s cumbersome curve balls, family issues and pain that felt so strong is what gave him motivation and ambition to write lyrics correlated by society. VT found himself focusing more on the aspects of a career in hip hop and less on the events that lead him there.

Jose’ Quervo is a 24 year old native of San Juan, Puerto Rico. At first glance, he may appear as just another cute face, but there are plenty of textures and layers to Jose’ that make him unique and his music unforgettable.

After the death of his father, Jose’ moved to the United States with his mother at the age of seven.  They resided in the Lower 9th Ward in New Orleans, Louisiana. Over time, rough surroundings of this community coupled with dealing with the absence of his father pushed Jose’ toward criminal behavior. In an effort to keep Jose’ out of trouble, his mother moved them to Baton Rouge, Louisiana when he was 13 years old.

Despite his delinquent behavior, there was always a spark in Jose’ that could not be denied. In hopes of channeling some of that energy, his mother enrolled him in dance, acting and art classes. As he began to excel in these fields, he couldn’t shake the yearning of wanting to sing.

At age 17, Jose’ met a young producer named TedyP and together they released his first project during that same year. By the age of 19, Jose’ was actively working as a choreographer and song writer for not only himself but other artists as well.

Jose’ Quervo currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia and is pursuing his music career.

He worked on all types of music such as Hip Hop, R&B, Techno, Dub-step, Electronic, Pop, Rock, Spoken Word and his newest challenge, composing for movie scores. He tries to be diverse and get into different forms and genres of music rather than just songwriting.
He was 11 years old when he wrote his first rhyme. “Let me tell you, for 11 years old, if you would have heard that rhyme, you would have said next song please. It was just so totally irrelevant to what an 11 year old should be rapping about,” said Maurice. He has progressed since then.On his 16th birthday his parents bought him a full DJ set which includes a mixer, 4000 watt amplifier, 2 pev key speakers and a Jbl bass bottom and an interface.  He began to DJ and his dad would book parties for him. He was DJing events like weddings, sweet sixteens, baby showers, bbq’s, and parties. His main genre of music was hip hop, r&b, reggae, pop, and soul. When he played soul music for his older audience, they were so surprised. He played music by artist like Jocelyn brown, Cheryl Lynn, Marvin Gaye and Earth, Wind & Fire. He began to get more clients by him playing those types of music.When he was 17 years old, he downloaded his first DAW program which was FL Studio 7 back at the time which is a software used by producers. When he opened the program, it was so complicated to him he just left it alone for about 6 months. Over a period of time he grew more anxious and eager to figure out how to work this program. He finally decided to go on YouTube and look at a couple of tutorials on how to get it running. Once he got it to work in his favor he been a proud addict ever since. All he does is produce music.Music is truly the one thing he can always go back to no matter how many times it may annoy him. His main goals in life are to dominate and perfect his music craft in ways he can’t even imagine. He wants to do it all. He plans to start his own music company and record label. One thing he knows is that there are definitely a lot of underground artists in NYC consisting of poetry, hip hop, singing, acting, and teaching. He hopes to build the strongest most talented NYC music group the world has ever seen.Connect With Maurice aka The General:Sound Cloud link http://soundcloud.com/maurice-general

Artistic genius is virtually indefinable. It is a phenomenon recognized only when experienced, reinvented by the souls of each generation. Undeniably, the visions captured through the eyes of Artist Kyle Bailey, in photograph or in film, leave no question of their rightful classification. Forged In the east coast of the bubbling digital age of New York City, Bailey’s gift to frame the raw, undetected beauty in every scene, every shot has elevated his status as one of New York Cities top music video directors. Kyle directs Art, creates genius, and produces urban Avante garde. Born and raised in the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, New York, Kyle’s work exemplifies the beautiful contradictions of the Urban New York area. “In a 10 minute span you can go from getting your head blown off to sitting in one of the most creative places in the world,” recalls Bailey. Somewhere between the rough streets of Brooklyn, the brutal police and peaceful artist, the relic memories of the post crack epidemic in the 80′s/90′s and poverty of the outer boroughs of NYC and the perceived artistic renaissance of Tribeca, Kyle stands fearlessly and creatively with his soul on display. In 2008, with a camera purchased by his late-deceased grandmother, Kyle got his first taste of Music video shooting local rappers and amateur models. With only the information gleaned from the Internet, Kyle ventured out and began filming some of New York’s roughest areas, connecting with and discovering the true character of the neighborhoods and their people. He began to gain notoriety by bringing the professional ethics of big budget music video productions to the brands of up and coming independent musical artist in the Tri-State area at affordable prices. Honing his skills as a Producer/Director better prepared Bailey for the next step in his career.” I love Art, It’s the Only craft to me where a universal language exist that people of all classes, races, and religions can comprehend” Kyle remembers.” Producing taught me business etiquette and how to connect creativity at the same time, and Direction taught me how to guide and bring out the artistic side in other people besides myself” In the summer of 2009, With a production team consisting of some of the most talented film students from SVA (School of Visual Arts), Kyle Bailey at the young age of 19, produced and directed his first big budget music video for local rap phenomenon, Breeze and Sp- Lets Be friends (BBM song). The music video became tagged Blackberries official Blackberry messenger song, premiered on MTV Music Choice on Demand, MTV Jams, BET, Crackberry.net, Thisis50.com and Ralph McDaniel’s Rap channel “VideoMusicBox” channel 25. This catapulted Baileys career onto a higher echelon and gained him more notoriety in the Tri-state Music industry. “We finally shot something that looked amazing and I was impressed by my own skills for crafting this music video project together” Kyle recalls. ” My ex girlfriend cheated and left me at the time and I was in a financial strut when god blessed me with this breakthrough video”. Bailey and his production team produced another music video hit for another local rap group by the name of Futuristic Lingo, The music video for their song “Its Natural” Went viral instantly on YouTube and garnered the music video placement on French TV and Sway’s Rap show-MTV Rap fix. “This is When I knew I had what it takes” The accolades just began to rise from then on for Bailey, being interviewed by DTF radio and being Featured in Hip Hop’s historic Source Magazine twice for music videos he produced/directed for Artist Fresh Unlimited and Ill-O Da Great, Kyle Bailey is determined to work harder and smart to achieve more visually propelled works of art. In 2011, now at the age 21 with more knowledge and networks within the industry, With Over 50 Producer Credits and 30 Director credits & counting Mr. Bailey is aiming towards higher achievements he says. In Kyle Bailey’s role as a producer and director, Kyle is committed to “coloring outside the lines” to create fresh, innovative content that incorporates the best and most advanced technologies in support for projects. He is equally attuned to delivering projects on time. His sense of humility, his kindness and his passion for the art he strives to master exude through every word. “I feel if you’re a filmmaker, you have a special gift, a very rare privilege to make people think and to touch people. It’s a special thing. If you’re a painter, a vocalist, or if you play an instrument, God’s given you this talent to touch people. I feel there’s a responsibility there.” although the cosmetics of his life have changed, Bailey remains grounded and humble. The memory of his grand mother, the struggles of his mother, the love of his little brother, the support of his friends and New York won’t let him be otherwise. When searching for love and creativity, one does not have to look further than the eyes of this young artist. Kyle creates. – Courtesy of – Jeremy Weinstein – Plex Magazine Connect With Kyle Bailey SPSON Junior Class Vice President Creative Director/Owner ~Apart of Innovation, Imperative to Renaissance~ http://KyleBaileyHD.com The Island of Jamaica has given the world so much rich music over time along with a variation of genres and styles from Ska, Dub and Reggae, to Jamaican Jazz, Pop and the Rude Boy-injected Rock Steady vibe. Well, that lineage continues—this time with a singer-songwriter, musician of Kingston, Jamaican heritage, who incorporates an eclectic creative mix of R&B and Reggae in his music. His name is David M and he is not an artist that you’ll easily forget.  His velvety voice and uplifting messages will linger in your heart long after the last note has been played. “Lest We Forget” is the notable first single written, produced and performed by David M, from his soon to be released conceptual album, Here Comes Your Life.  The powerful and climatic song was created in tribute to United States President Barack Obama—the historic significance of his election, and what it represents to people around the globe. Originally written as a salute to South African President Nelson Mandela, David rewrote the song to reflect today’s current events. Regarding the theme for “Lest We Forget,” David says, “I have the privilege to have lived to see the culmination of the efforts and contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Marcus Garvey, Rosa Parks and a whole generation of men and women who struggled so that Barack Obama, as well as you and I, can enjoy the fruits of their labor.  The labor of those who went before who suffered through this crucible…for the opportunities we have and taken for granted … lest we forget, their sacrifices.” Here Comes Your Life [BGM Entertainment] was completely written and produced by David M along with his co-producer Bowie McLoughlin. The album is a collection of songs whose themes range from the socially conscious, to personal insights, pain and loss, to simply partying and having a bit of fun. The title track, Here Comes Your Life, is a mid-tempo groove, accompanied by a sensually colorful video.  “It’s a very personal song to me.  I wrote it about someone I knew who was trying to hide her past,” says David. “Most people have skeletons in their closet that always come back to haunt them. This particular song is about the past coming back to visit the present.” “Remember Me” is a sentimental tribute that expresses David’s personal grief about someone who became his friend, confidant and like a sister, who left a lasting impression on him. She passed in the middle of the making of Here Comes Your Life.  Gone too soon.  David’s mother, who appears in his video “Lest We Forget,” also passed before the recording of the album, which added to his sense of loss. “Playing to the Moon,” expresses David’s genuine feelings of loss and loneliness in a personal relationship.  Seeking comfort on the keyboards, he wrote the song on piano and developed it over two nights. During his tribute to the great Bob Marley on “The Heart of Everyone,” David responds to those who have recently questioned or criticized the legitimacy of Marley, stating, “Whether comments were taken out of context or not, Bob’s as yet unmatched contribution to Reggae music, his singular and outstanding rich musical gifts, and the respect he deserves for them, are not open to discussion. Bob needs no defense from me, but this is from my heart, ‘he touched the heart of everyone’.” David shows his appreciation and concern for the globe and the environment on, “This is Our World.” “It’s a song about hope and a call to arms for change,” says David. “We all have a responsibility to leave it in good health and sustainable for our children and their children ad infinitum. This is our time and our place’… The time to act is now.”  “This is Our World” was commissioned by the United Nations for its recent Players for Peace campaign. With all of these powerful messages front and center, David, like everyone else, has a fun and lighter side. “Girls Night Out” certainly represents that. The party, along with a score of beautiful women, can be seen in full swing via the video clip, directed by newcomer, Adrian Lopez. Inspired by the likes of so many, including Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder, music has always played a vital role in David’s life.   Starting out on the piano at age six, he spent most of his childhood singing and playing in front of audiences.  “My early days were characterized by music lessons twice a week and playing piano in the orchestra or playing at festivals or shows, ” stated David. It wasn’t long before his love for playing and singing would lead him to write and produce his own songs.  But his plan to pursue music as a career would have to wait until he graduated from college and completed his schooling at Norman Manley Law School in Jamaica.  Shortly after leaving Norman Manley – law degree in hand – David’s father passed away and the singer-turned lawyer shifted gears and took over the reigns of his family’s waste disposal and janitorial business. But what remained at the center of David’s heart was his passion for music. The 90’s became a very prolific period for him.  David signed a deal with Reggae producer Gussy Clarke and his Dub Plate Publishing Company, (then the largest music publishers in Jamaica) and Anchor Recordings where he wrote songs for reggae luminaries including Gregory Isaacs, Freddie McGregor, Dennis Brown, Coco Tea, Shabba Ranks and JC Lodge. “I’ve been so blessed and fortunate to express myself both musically and consciously,” he says. “I’ve waited a long time for this moment.” And he is now, without a doubt, poised to take his place among the great singer-songwriters of this generation.

A true master of his craft, he is more than typical rap bravado, Stashiz uses his trials and tribulations to fuel his art and doing so has resonated with all those who have heard his material.

    After years of honing his craft, Rob began making moves with other underground artists such as Steph Pockets & Deep 6ix (whom Rob worked with on the soundtrack for “O”, starring Mekhi Phifer and Julia Stiles), as well as forming a group with family members and close friends, Raw Deal Squad (which consists of Rob Stashiz, Death DaVinci & Rome Ya’ Favorite Rapper). Stashiz would prove to be a standout act through his ability to craft catchy hooks and convey raw emotion no matter the subject matter. Songs like “No Matter What” and “Since I Was Young” reveal such emotion and story-telling that it can touch the hearts of any listener. It is the X factor that separates Rob Stashiz from so many other unsigned artists.

He slowly would grind his way to success by getting his buzz single “Make Em Listen” played on 100.3 The Beat and capitalizing on that success by releasing “Class Be Seated” with Raw Deal Squad. His current mixtape, “This F’N Guy: Stashiz Brigante” has given him more success due to the great response he’s been getting for the quality of the music and the huge push that the lead single “Philly Anthem” has been getting at live shows and the recently-filmed video. The time has come for this proud father and amazing artist. Backed by his Raw Deal Squad family, Stashiz is ready to conquer the music world…The Stashman is coming to invade your media waves, world get ready!!!!

Going all over the south region doing shows pushing his name and career. When it comes to competition within the music industry, an artist must exude greatness. This particular artist must shine amongst the brightest and deliver more than what could be expected. Rhythm and Blues singer LaFonda shows that her aura and vocal ability can not go unnoticed. This Bronx beauty captures her audience’s attention with hypnotizing choreographed dance moves and a melodic voice that any avid R&B listener would cherish. Nothing is granted without handwork and perseverance, which LaFonda is a firm believer in. The greatest performers are the most unforgettable, especially when it comes to a genre such as R&B. LaFonda  has received many honors such as an Underground Music Award for “Best R&B Female Artist” in 2006, along with three Indie Music Awards for “Best Female Solo”, “Best Female Performer” and “Best Female Artist” in 2008. Within a short period of time, she became recognized as an entertainer on all levels. Although, a musician’s greatest asset is their ability to connect to their audience on a personal level, LaFonda proved that she could do more than just provide amazing performances. This rhythmic artist showed professionalism and dedication towards her craft. After doing countless amounts of open mic nights and showcases, LaFonda graced the stages of MSG TV and BET. Her stage presence and vocal ability captivated the audience and also the A&R’s who were present. LaFonda shows her listeners that there is a softer and sensual side from her Bronx environment. She grew up listening to legendary musicians such as Patti Labelle, Anita Baker, Michael Jackson, and Toni Braxton. This young diva also gives credit to her mother, who was a driving force in her passion for music. In 2007, she released her first mixtape LP appropriately titled “Go Hard or Go Home”, joining forces with another talent, producer Playboy-Chi and his production imprint, Sleepless Productionz. This musically sensational production has gained recognition from the likes of DJ Bedtyme 357, DJ Wayne McDonald from the U.K, along with other DJs. When the opportunity to showcase her talent came in the form of the popular 106 and Park’s “Wild Out Wednesday” in 2010, LaFonda showed who owned the stage in front of a live, jam packed audience. With enough preparation and opportunity, success was not far along. She performed her smash single “OHH AHH” and gained new fans who appreciated this new talent. Recently, in front of a packed venue at a Best Buy in the Bronx, LaFonda delivered a powerful performance to showcase her now R&B/ Pop sound. In each performace, song, and step, she proves that she still connects with her R&B roots but now with a more mainstream Pop vibe. Since then,LaFonda has been featured on MTV3, BET.com, Black Beat Magazine, Rolling Out Weekly, The Cipha Sounds Effect Show on Sirius Radio and Xpoz Magazine, just to name a few. With so much potential to turn the R&B/Pop scene into a competitive market, LaFonda wants to prove that she can leave an everlasting imprint on the future of urban music.

FAME
(Hybrid Season)
Cecilio Joseph (born June 25, 1991), who records under the mononym Fame, is an East Brooklyn hip hop artist and soul vocalist.   Raised by a single mother, and now barely twenty year old, Fame’s energy and upbringing blends like his music- full of likable melodies, fine rhymes, and a knack for the devil in its details.  Blessed with multifaceted rap and vocal talents, Fame pushes the bar to new heights while throwing down a gauntlet in the hybrid rapper-singer scene now taking center stage in urban music’s collective consciousness.
Because the credibility of a single artist who raps and can actually sing bucks detractors who believe one should only do one or the other,  it was thought at first that listeners would be hesitant to hear Fame’s real talent.  However, the reaction for most hasn’t been as polarizing as originally expected, in fact, its been the opposite.  If its hot, its still hot.
“I’m glad the response to what I do has been so positive for the most part.  I’m definitely influenced by the golden era of hip hop and conscience lyrics.  At the same time I gravitate towards more musical elements with an energetic rawness.” Fame next says with a grin, “then again, sometimes you just gotta spit the dirty truth.”
What makes Fame’s music stand out, besides the catchy parallel metaphors, rhyme schemes and twisted resolutions, is the fun he effortlessly infuses into his tunes. Highly influenced by the clear annunciation of Jay Z, Biggie, Fabolous & R. Kelly, he also draws upon the styles of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, and retro-80’s sounds.  Add that he writes, records and performs most of his own composed hooks and choruses, and you might believe its not enough today to only have enough talent for rap.  “Basically, I like party records, and love songs… why not combine both in a single track?”
In October 2010, MBK Entertainment agreed, and signed Fame to a management and production deal.  He’s since locked himself in at MBK Studios in midtown Manhattan writing and recording with a variety of producers.  This past Summer, FAME released his debut mixtape “The Hybrid Season“, led by the smash hip hop single “COY” and the ballad “PSYCHO”.
With lyrics and wit so apparent, its also easy to forget that Fame is so young.  None was more obvious when recently asked what inspired him to chase down his dream, (he personally acknowledged to be shared by many.)  Fame accounted for a time when he was only 16 , being in the wrong place at the wrong time resulted in injuries that included a wired-shut jaw, a stockpile of emotion and words amassed inside his mind.  “It was then, without being able to talk to anyone that I became depressed, like after 2 months,” he says.  “The inspiration and ideas for my own songs began to build-up inside me like a reservoir.”  He also added, “When I got my jaw back, and was finally able to speak, I didn’t take my privilege to communicate with my voice for granted.  I worked hard and not just in choir practice, or at rap battles, but to seek the best quality of music to wrap my words around… it takes an incredible amount of hustle and patience to find the highest quality of music collaboration.  When I sometimes couldn’t find the sound I was looking for, I made up my own.”
Stay tuned as FAME will be releasing “The Hybrid Season 2” mixtape at the top of the 2012.

Leading artist Alexander “King A.T.G.” noticed his talent via Facebook notes of poems, and recruited A+ to the hip hop industry. The record label merged with another entertainment group, Grind Mode Entertainment, and became what is now known as The Grand Empire Mizfit Gang (TGEMFG). This integration brought many opportunities to the table, such as performing and meeting other artists in the local area. He and Aaron then met another young artist by the name of Cavarggio “Flame Flizzo” Boyd-Thompson and they became like brothers. Upon establishing the bond, A+ decided to create his own youthful group of local artist under TGEMFG. This group became Red Tape Cloud Gang.

What better way to do that than creatively share his own story. “Every day’s a new lesson, that’s what life comes with. Ironic it’s a gift that doesn’t come with instructions…”

          Most artists today have the extraordinary gift to sing and entertain but they lack the power of effectiveness, the ability to change lives and make an impact on the hearts of their listeners. However, Lawrence James, better known as L-Jaye  is one of the few who possess something greater than talent, he possess the anointing of God which allows his voice to be used as God’s chosen instrument to usher in the Spirit, Glory and Move of God. L-Jaye isn’t just talented but he is touched, he isn’t just a writer but he is a worshipper, his music bears the marks of his heart which shows the emotions of his struggle and the tenacity of his walk with Christ. 

Born in Germany and raised in Atlanta, L-Jaye had always known he was blessed with the gift of song and the skill of writing and just like the bible teaches us his gift placed him in the presence of great people. L-Jaye has been blessed to work with some of the greatest artist and producers of our time such as T-Boz from TLC, Dallas Austin, Shady Aftermath and the list goes on.  His gift not only placed him in the studio with other artist and producers it also opened up the door for him to be the opening act for the talented Kelly Price. With this success under his belt, L-Jaye decided to proceed with his music career and he auditioned and performed on the Apollo at the Apollo Theatre. Not only did L-Jaye win the competition he also won the hearts of the audience as well. Taking full advantage of his music momentum

 L-Jaye began working on his solo debut R&B album. But God had a different plan.  Even though he had the right contacts, the right collaborations and definitely the right talent to be the next greatest R&B artist of all time, God had written his destiny in a different direction. Doors began to close for L-Jaye as he continued at his attempt to create his first album. Then God began to strategically allow situations, and people to position him to accept his true call and his true destiny to become an instrument of worship for the Kingdom of God.  He began attending LightHouse Ministries in Atlanta, GA where God began to pour into his spirit and awaken the call to worship that was laying dormant for all these years. L-Jaye began to offer his musical talents and became the leader of the praise team.  As he operated in this position he found that his drive and motivation to sing, write and perform R&B had faded away.

As L-Jaye found himself basking in the presence of God his heart began to fill up with words that he placed together on paper to create songs of love, worship and deliverance. L-Jaye has accepted his call to worship and his duty to praise and is currently working on his first Gospel album. L-Jaye’s music isn’t just words mixed with a few beats to entertain your flesh or enhance your mood. His songs are birthed from struggle, from pain, from defeats and from victories. His songs come from the secret place of his heart covered with the glory of God and empowered by the anointing to bring you encouragement and empowerment, to bring you deliverance and restoration. But most of all his songs allow the Spirit of God to manifest and set your atmosphere on fire because L-Jaye’s music isn’t just a melody but it is a ministry ushering in a movement of God.

Explosive is definitely the word that comes to mind when you hear the singer/rapper/songwriter/engineer Coley B’s music. The passion, power and straightforward raunchy lyrics of this hip hop and R&B veteran has captured the attention of audiences for over ten years. Her incredible delivery and stage presence has earned her respect by audiences throughout New York City.  Her raw, uncensored lyrics set her far apart from her female peers. “I say all the things women are scared to say and men love to hear”, says Coley B. Hailing from Brookyln, Coley B grew up amongst some of music’s greatest contenders. Coley B began singing at the age of 6 and by the age of 14, she was already writing songs. She first took the stage at age 16 and went on to perform in several open mics around the city.  By age 19, Coley B, who was known by her fans as “Tangarae” at the time was performing for sold out crowds, had dropped an album, and was on her way to stardom. Coley B’s continued success lead her to an opportunity to perform for an MTV/LOGO exec who was so impressed with her that years later she invited Coley B to perform for the 2009 Out Music Awards raving that she “…couldn’t forget that swag”. Coley B took the stage in front of the packed to capacity Webster Hall crowd, gave an incredible performance, and left the crowd amazed. Coley B’s outstanding resume includes over 200 songs recorded and numerous collaborations with people like Kel Spencer, ghostwriter for many people like Will Smith and Wyclef Jean; T blaze of the production group “the machine”, and Sky Carter, producer of her first album. Coley B says, “These are people in my neighborhood.  They’ve done so many things in the industry.  They teach me something new everyday.  That’s how I stay on my toes. They know how to stay relevant.” Coley B is undeniably a force to be reckoned with and the next female phenom to take the world by storm!

Every once in a while, there comes an artist who has so much substance

and knowledge that they effectively change the norm. The words they

speak and the stories they tell do something to our minds and hearts

that allow us to recognize their realness and credibility so much that

imposters take cover. Besides aiming to inspire, motivate, and reach,

all those who come into contact with their craft, there is also a

genuine bond born. In an industry where many claim the true essence of

its origin is dead, Mr. Franklin is determined to bring Hip-Hop back

to life.

Adaptable by nature, due to his ability to forecast real life

situations and the realness of people, Mr. Frank in not easily

enticed by the spotlight. Instead he uses it as a tool to turn his

dreams and his goals into reality

“I dislike rappers, ”claims Mr. Frank. “But I admire those who

speak the truth and do this while obtaining wealth from doing

something that they enjoy. I don’t dwell on exaggerating this

situation or embellishing anything. If I haven’t done it, had it or

experienced it first hand, then I can’t convey that in my music.”

With a commanding presence that immediately attracts your attention

and a distinctive sound that differentiates him from being comparable

to today’s supposed competition, there’s no questioning why he’s here

to lead and become iconic. Inspired by Hip-Hop Pioneers, Outkast,

Tupac, 8Ball &MJG, and DMX, this Georgia raised lyricist that respects

a northern influence is prepared to introduce the world to what he

deems his own lane in music. Compiled of issues that revolve around

his life, perspectives, ambitions, and ups and downs, this original

sound relates to more than just the ear. In fact it stands alone and

on its own in an industry that is as predictable as it is black and

white.

“I Make music for myself and those who choose to listen,” starts Mr.

Frank “It’s more than just telling a story for me. It’s about

conveying my perspective to people and doing it in a very articulate

manner. I’m creating music that the average new artist from Atlanta

isn’t creating. I’m me. I can’t, I refuse and see no need to change

who I am and my goals or ideals. They can embrace it or keep it

moving. One bad check doesn’t make the bank close.” I was once told

that I possess Star Quality.  That person fully explained to me what

this characteristic encompasses. I found myself intrigued by the

compliment, consequently when I began making music I started my own

label hence Star Quality Ent I am the CEO of my company.”

Operating on the dedication to stay focused on creating an Iconic

movement; his self-proclaimed alias “Most h8ted” puts everything in

perspective. “Most H8ted comes from the simple fact that no one

initially likes me, I move a certain way, and I don’t deal with

everyone and I refuse to be fake. One can either be an asset to me, or

they are a liability. Either way it goes I will do what I do as well

as I can. Scratch the surface and find out who I am instead of just

assuming. Everyone thinks I’m arrogant and such, I’m not I just know

what I’m capable of and I also won’t let another man limit my success,

so basically I determine my fate.” Surrounded by a artillery that

includes a fresh new sound. Mr. Frank has his own in house

production, and a new wave of producers. Mr. Frank is surely on his

way. With his new single currently hitting the circuits and gaining

the respect and approval of the streets, Mr. Frank will certainly

be the name on everybody’s lips this year and for years to come.

At his early strtings Halo would battle rap people in his school and area for respect and in highschool would be where he earned as much respect you could ask for as a battle rapper but that only took him so far as so his school effort, instead studying test he would write rhymes instead of writing notes he would be in class rapping for classmates or writing quoutes… This showed up on his report cards which lead to his mom ( Tamatha Powers ) ultimatum you either pay your way through college or join the military, of course he went with the easier decision and joined the Airforce. He currently is doing a six year term but within his 1st year he hook up with his Manager/Promoter Jamia Parks and started a team called Globalshyne and pushing out music not only for himself but any artist that need promoting.

Lady Assassin a.k.a. D.T.A.'s Lyrical Queen is an aspiring singer / rapper / songwriter born & raised in New Jersey. Music is a huge aspect of her life and it has captivated her from the start. Lady A. was born in East Orange. Throughout her childhood she surrounded herself with music as an escape from the realities of life. Singing always brought her peace & she only did it as a release. At the age of 4, she became the youngest member of her father's drill team and began learning to play the drums. In elementary school, she joined the band and learned how to play the clarinet. She continued with the band through middle school and into high school. In high school, she joined the marching band and choir. She also learned how to play the saxaphone and strengthened her skills on the drums. And then her life turned upside down...when Lady A. was 14, her older sister was brutally murdered, which really devestated her. Her parents got a divorce a year later and she felt as though her life was falling apart. Her mother then moved her and her two brothers to Verona (which was a huge change from East Orange). At this point, Keesha lost her drive for music. She stopped everything all together and retreated to just singing for herself. Going through so many different emotions from the prior two years, she started making some bad choices. Luckily, she graduated from high school but was 8 months pregnant when she did. She became a mom at the age of 19 (she surely wasn't ready but she did what she had to do). Real life had taken over and she was then faced with the reality of raising her son without a father. Everyday she fights to make sure that he doesn't make the same mistakes as his father. So, she gave everything to GOD...she asked HIM to take the load off & help guide her. Guess what??? HE answered her prayers and she met a man that she has grown to trust with her life (she hasn't seen her father since he left). This man stepped into her life and helped her get focused and get it back on track. He made her feel like conquering the world. By 2005, she had two more children (a girl & a boy) and she worked as a preschool teacher. She lived a normal life and music still wasn't back in her sights (even though she thought about it everyday). In early 2006, Lady A. became very ill and spent most of the year recouperating and getting herself back to 100%. In this time she realized that she had made a big mistake by turning her back on her love of music. So she put everything into making it right. "Life is just too short" She really stepped her game up. She started writing to get her skills up and singing hooks for other artists. In 2007, she was picked up by D.T.A. RecordZ (an Independant Label) and became Lady Assassin or Lady A. for short. The 1st Lady of D.T.A. They have built themselves from the ground up. They have their own studio, "The BlackHole", they do all of their own promotions, they even do their own CD duplication, amongst other things. She has been featured on songs with Verbal Assassin (her label mate & CEO of D.T.A.) & Doobie Bad Asz (label mate & fellow femcee). She has performed at several different venues: *Diva Lounge in Montclair, NJ* *60 Park & Grill in Newark, NJ* *Mood Lounge in Union,NJ* *South Park in Montclair, NJ* *Agozar Bistro in NYC* *Gallery Bar in NYC* & just recently *The Good Life Restaurant & Lounge in Union City, NJ* Knowing that she needed to concentrate on finishing her project, she locked herself in the studio (no phones, no computer) just her music, her pen & her notebook and finished her debut street CD "Welcome To My World", which was released in May 2009. It includes the hit love ballad "Cross The Desert". With over 70,000 plays on her myspace page, Lady A. is really on her way to the top. To her singing has always been as natural as breathing but while working on her 2nd CD, she tried her hand at rapping and found that to be a comfort zone. She finished her mixtape in a few months. "A Triple Threat" was released in June 2010 and on it you will find tracks with her singing, rapping and a few of both. It has always been her dream to stand on stage and captivate audiences with her one of a kind lyrical style and with her positive outlook on life and her beautiful smile, once you meet her, you just can't help but to love her. Just listen to her music and you will get to know her. She truly is a "Diamond in the Rough" Lady A. is currently working on her 3rd project entitled "Lyrical Queen" which is due to be released by May 2011. She is also working on the D.T.A. Compilation and getting her skills up recording & mixing sessions. She is also very big on supporting & helping out with great causes. She is currently involved in the "Oath Of Peace" Stop The Violence Movement & is a proud member of The Sanity Gurlz Domestic Violence Movement. Take the time and give her music a chance, she is a true treasure. She has really come into her own and has become one of the baddest female emcee's coming out of the Garden State.

While Montgomery, Alabama has been known as the center of the Civil Rights Movement, it is also the birthplace of singer/songwriter J-Marsh. The young heartthrob also known as Jarvis Jermaine Marshall, was born to Zula Marshall and George Peavy on October 14, 1987.

When most of the kids in Highland Village were playing “hide and seek” growing up, J-Marsh and his older brother “C.Soul” were playing with lyrics and beats. Since the age of six, J-Marsh has had a passion for music that he continues to release through song. His approach to making good music is rather different from the typical R & B singer. Most songwriters are known to think of a concept to write about and then execute their writings over a nice beat. However, J-Marsh is a “freestyle singer”. His usual music-making setting is comfortable space and limited lighting. All he needs is the beat and he melodiously sings the story of his thoughts. All of his music is inspired by situational thoughts that later form stories to send messages to his audience who may be experiencing those same situations. Therefore, his talent provides substance in his music and his voice is not in vain. When asked to describe himself and what he wants to become in the industry, J-Marsh answers, “I am a laid-back, determined, people person who has a drive for making music & catering to the ladies.” J-Marsh is driven on the notion to “bring back the real R&B and soul” to music. He is inspired by people like Donnie Hathaway, Lauryn Hill, Keri Hilson, Usher, R.Kelley, & the late Michael Jackson. He proclaims that Hathaway’s presence on stage, Hill’s soulful music, and Jackson’s complete package is what kept music alive from its origination. Though J-Marsh does not compare himself to anyone in the industry, he models his career goals similar to those artists’ with longevity. His atypical talent and strong drive will not allow him to be a “one-hit wonder”. Though he possesses his own talent, and is self-motivated, J-Marsh gives great credit to the Alabama State University Theatre Department. “It all started with the ASU Theater Summer Camp,” he notes. During this highly energetic summer camp, J-Marsh worked diligently with well-respected ASU leaders such as Rodney Wilkerson, Terrence Baldwin, & Guenada Lambert, to polish his performance skills. In addition to perfecting his own craft, J-Marsh played a major role in the Theater Arts Performing School (TAPS) at ASU working with younger students to exercise the talents within them. Later after the theater, J-Marsh branched off into the realm of the recording industry. Working with groups like D4L and singing with King South, he was introduced to different aspects of the industry. This helped him to decipher between the avenues in which to channel his drive. From working with different people, J-Marsh immediately understood what it takes for him to succeed in this industry. He believes that the two biggest mistakes that singers make in this industry are those of, “getting caught up in the fame from the industry and not knowing their roles.” J-Marsh is the type of artist who will always show love to his origination. He says that through the busy life of a good artist, his mother keeps him grounded. With his father passing away when he was only three years old, Ms. Marshall was charged with raising him by herself. Words can’t express the love that J-Marsh has for his mother. Therefore, one of his goals is to, “do for her everything that she’s done for me,” he said. Despite the fact that he is a new artist, J-Marsh has some “bedroom music” that is sure to top the charts. Of his compilation, his favorite song happens to be “Textual Intercourse”. This chart-topper is relative to the sexual technological age today texting sexual desires. He is the first artist to use such terminology in such a unique song format. He calls it “sexting”. In addition to “Textual Intercourse,” J-Marsh will be releasing his hit single “Zodiac Signs” in early February of 2011.

Growing up in a musically inclined family, it was only a matter of time before Brandie Cherise Green would discover her niche for creating music. Soon to be known as Remedy, Brandie was born in Syracuse, NY and relocated to Orlando, FL a few years later. After years of sports and becoming a basketball phenom, she rediscovered her musical roots while writing and taking her first jabs at rapping.
At the tender age of 13, an injury caused her to divert her attention from sports and direct attention toward her music; thus she became more familiar with studio equipment, recording programs, and even production programs. Remedy began to attract the attention of thousands on MySpace.com and even caught the eye of several artists, managers, and producers. At 17, she was nominated for a local hip hop award and began to line up shows around Orlando, FL.
Today, still very youthful and full of energy and confidence, Remedy is getting closer and closer to her dream of being a major artist and taking her place among the great emcees of our time. As she likes to say…we should “Witness the Franchise”.

Redd Bull is an independent artist based out of Atlanta GA by way of St. Petersburg FL. This artist is bringing a presence never before seen to the music industry. His immaculate lyricism combined with his sharp delivery puts Redd Bull in a category of his own. Born October 2nd 1985 at Bayfront Medical Center the city of St Petersburg had produced a young prodigy. Born to parents that were not St. Petersburg natives a young Redd Bull was a frequent traveler in and out of the Bay area. Growing up noticing the expansive gap between the wealthy and the middle to lower class in the City of St. Pete was exactly the motivation needed for Redd Bull to put in 110% into everything he did. In early to teen years Redd Bull, like most minority youth, saw either the streets or athletics as the only way to better the situation he was born into. Redd Bull excelled in sports, mainly basketball but frequent injuries showed that Hoop Dreams could dissapear overnight. Indulging in the activities of the streets seemed to come naturally after hopes of NBA Stardom became less and less realistic to Redd Bull. Losing friends and loved ones to the pitfalls of the streets showed that life wasnt promised. This was the inspiration behind the music. After High School Redd Bull moved out of the Bay area and floated around the South gaining fans and supporters along the way. Redd Bull has been paying his dues on the underground Rap scene for long enough the door to the industry is about 2 be kicked in...Its time to change the game.

There’s a saying in the basketball world: You can’t teach height. In the stratosphere of entertainment, it’s star power that relegates education obsolete. It’s also what makes tomorrow such an inviting host for Massachusetts’ first hip-hop star, Amiyj (pronounced Ah-meej). With a fashion model look, consuming charisma, a flammable independent single (“Take A Picture”) and personal story worthy of cinematic attention, Amiyj is you and your significant other’s favorite new MC.Born in Worcester, Massachusetts to a Ghanaian father and Trinidadian mother who weren’t able to financially raise their son, young Amiyj was shipped to his grandparent’s home in Trinidad. With a minister for a grandfather and a Soca band leader for an uncle, Amiyj discovered an appreciation for words and music early on. This appreciation would mature into a passion once the destined MC returned to the U.S and found what would remain his biggest love (until the birth of his daughter): hip-hop. “Yes my extremely diverse background immediately separates me from other rap artists,” says the 28-year-old. “But there’s so much more to my story that I have no choice but to stand apart from the pack.”

His story does get deeper. While Amiyj’s parents were finally able to shelter and feed their son, they had no desire to keep him on par with the Jones’s. So at age 14, Amiyj fell into the all-too-familiar trappings of drug hustling. Never compromising his intelligence for commerce, Amiyj maintained his A-student status during the former part of the day and hit the block heavy for the latter. By the time Amiyj was able to send himself to Salem State College (Sociology major) he already had a rep as a local rap star, built on his articulate delivery and fortified by rock-solid relationships throughout the underworld. Throughout the New England area he would easily sell out shows, even becoming the first rapper to perform at the Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra.

Unfortunately, after college, with mixtape sales and a Hollywood modeling contract unable to sustain his new title of Dad, Amiyj returned to hustling, eventually landing him a drug charge in 2008. Fortunately an illegal search helped him avoid prison. Viewing his exoneration as a blessing, Amiyj teamed with Famish Enterprises and fully committed himself to his music, and completely leaving his illegal activity behind him. Now with “Take A Picture” catching fire from Boston to South Beach and his self-titled video grabbing the Internet’s attention, it’s looking like the son of two immigrants is finally ready to live his American dream. “How many rappers lived in a foreign country, are familiar with the street life, went to college, were signed to a major modeling agency and can make hit records with the best of em?”

Normally when you hear the word menace you think something bad or evil. Everything with the word like Dennis the menace to Menace 2 society or menacing shadow. But now when you hear menace you will think greatness due to the emergence of Black Menace. The gritty rapper everyone’s been waiting for since beanie. Black Menace is the resurgence of NY hip hop in its prime. Menace has worked with several artists who have helped groom him in and out of the studio. The songs he releases can be considered ghetto scriptures because of the relativity to those going through the same struggle. Treating everyday like it’s the playoffs go hard or go home menace climbs to success. As the 1st son of the hood he moves the crowd and makes you drift when he spits. Dirty South “Black Menace reminds me of Beanie Sigeal when he first got signed or even Dmx in the prime of his career.” The hunger and the passion pour out on every track. A Brownsville state of mind is your look into the mind of this Brownsville native. This album depicts street life in its fullest form. Don’t get it twisted he doesn’t glorify street life but signifies he did it to survive not to be another Nino Brown. There are other aspects of the album showing the love for his wife and kids, to the easy mode of smoking a blunt. Black Menace is the beginning of the end of the wack rappers.
