JacQuese Raemon Steele was born on May 21st 1990 in Kalamazoo, MI. She began singing from the time that she could talk. JacQuese wrote her first song in the third grade and sang her first solo on stage as a fourth grader. It was at this point where she developed a love for songwriting and singing, and from then on knew she wanted to be a star! At the age of eleven JacQuese began recording studio hooks for her father’s local rap group, and shortly after began writing and recording verses. At the age of fourteen JacQuese released a two song Demo CD, which included Groove box , and her hit song High School Sweetheart, in which she wrote and co-produced. As a freshmen in high school JacQuese discovered musical theatre and developed a great love for it. She started out doing chorus and dance roles in musicals like “South Pacific” and “Oklahoma!,” then in shows like “Little Shop of Horrors, where she Played Crystal, the lead urchin.” Soon after, JacQuese began to snag bigger roles in community theatre production‘s like “Ragtime,” where she got the opportunity to play the understudy of Sarah’s friend, and worked alongside former “West Side Story,” Tony and Maria original Broadway tour cast members Denene Mullet Koch and Jermey Koch.

About DC Don Juan: He’s the new pimp of the rap game. Is it his swagger, the thickness of his voice, or even the contagious smile with the dimple on the side that makes him irresistible?

When DC, Maryland and Virginia natives want to know the latest and greatest they have an expert in their mists. DC Native Delante “Gerreddi” Hines has made quite a splash in the DC, MD and VA area with his new smash single “What’s Happenin”. In addition to taking DC radio by storm you can also here the song as an opener for the Washington Wizards basketball games.
Born in Washington, D.C., Gerreddi discovered his passion for writing poetry at a very young age. It became an early escape route for the only child and helped him get thru the daily struggles of life. Eventually the temptation was more than he could resist and he reverted to a fast lifestyle of violence. This led Gerreddi to incarceration where he realized that he was on a road to nowhere.
It didn’t take long for this young soldier to realize that he had a way with words and his talent was soon evident when he would engage in ciphers against other competitive rappers in the hood. Fascinated with the art of Hip Hop, he would enter every contest that he could while actually researching the music industry. He competed and won the Roc the Mic Tour Battle Championship held at the Nissan Pavilion. He was to receive a recording contract with Rocafella Records but that never came to fruition but this did not stop this rising star. Continue reading

“Boogiie Byrd’s BIO”
I was born on June 12, 1991 as Burrell Debois Hampton Jr. but I am known to most as Boogiie Byrd. My mother Suzette Hampton and father, whom I was named after, raised my siblings and I in the Forestville Maryland area, where my father introduced us to music at a very young age. Growing up with a father as a producer had many advantages that I couldn’t see early on but as I got older I realized my interest in music was being manifested deep within. I remember my father taking me to the studio to see other artist perform and I would picture myself on the mic rapping the lyrics to a song that I had written. However, my father wasn’t the only influential musician in my life, I had a slue of relatives that were either musicians or singers. Therefore, I learned at an early age that I have a way with words, so as a teenager I began to write lyrics to rap songs. As my interest for music progressed, so did my talent and when I reached high school my music career took off. Since high school I have traveled between New York and the DMV area working with various producers and artists such as Jai from the DMV area, Ces from Maryland, Skrewface from Maryland, and Buck from New York, all of which have produced beats or songs with the infamous Boogiie Byrd.
