DMX
DMX
A Yonkers MC who debuted with home-town friends, the Lox, on a DJ Clue mix-tape, DMX hit the big time in 1998 when his single "Get at Me Dog" which became a club and radio smash. He instantly became known for his trademark growling and barking, that appears on almost all the tracks that he records. According to popular belief, this arises from DMX's love of dogs. He has multiple tattoos that are based on his relationship with them. He is said to believe that dogs can be a man's only loyal friends. An interesting fact is DMX received a tattoo in remembrance of one of his dogs that died after being run over by a motorist. In a music industry that often specializes in manufactured stars – neatly wrapped packages that look the right way and do and say all the right things – it is a rare event to witness the emergence of a true artist. DMX, rap's ruffestryder, is of this rare breed of artists. He has held the hip hop world spellbound with his raw, unbridled energy, unyielding passion and lyrics of fury since his explosive arrival in 1998, the year that was unquestionably the year of the dog.

After stand-out performances on tracks like: LL COOL J "4,3,2,1". The Lox's "Money, Power, Respect" and Mase's "24 Hours to Live, DMX got the worlds attention with his own, bonified street anthem "Get At Me Dog". He released his groundbreaking first effort "Its Dark And Hell is Hot" featuring the intoxicating, gritty joints "Stop Being Greedy" and "Ruff Ryders Anthen" which debuted at # 1 and quickly went multi-platinum. That summer after a headlining stint on the Survival of the Illest Tour, DMX retreated to the studio again… In December that year he released the classis Horror Film On Wax .. Flesh of My Flesh,Blood of My Blood, " Flesh," which included the Poignant, autobiographical song "Slipping" and released 6 months later after its predecessor, also held the Top spot on the charts making DMX the 1st artist to ever have two number one debuts in the same year..

After spending the 1st part of 1999 on tour with fellow Def Jam artist Jay-Z, Redman and Method Man on the most successful hip hop tour ever.. "HARD KNOCK LIFE TOUR"
DMX took off for the heat of Miami to work on his next offering. Then there was X in True DMX style…
Then there was X served up yet another feast of driving beats, ferocious rhymes flow and tales from the dark side.

DMX sums up his formula of success by saying , "I'm Real" And people like real… I haven't crossed them yet I haven't been on no fake shit yet, nor bullshit yet….they feel my shit…people like a real person ! Then Smiles…

EVERYONE LIKES A DOG THOUGH…..

Wayne Brezz
Wayne Brezz
Hailing from Houston Texas, Wayne Brezz is a singer/songwriter with a unique sound, combining old-school R&B with a contemporary pop sound. As long as he can remember, music has been Wayne’s true passion and driving force. From as little as five years old, Wayne was in his parents’ living room, singing and dancing in front of the TV to the musical styling of legends, like the Temptations and Michael Jackson. Wayne reflects, “I don’t think then I knew music would be such a huge impact on my life now, but it’s like a vine that hasn’t stopped growing”. His passion for music continued through his childhood.

In middle school, Wayne started writing poetry and with the encouragement of family and friends, Wayne began to turn those poems into song lyrics. Realizing no one could sing his original songs better than he could, Wayne began to take singing more seriously. As the years passed, and he went from boy to man, Wayne continued to learn and be inspired by musical greats such as Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, Luther Vandross, Donny Hathaway, and Mint Condition. Current artist influences such as Ne-Yo, Mario, Usher, and Lloyd keep Wayne’s musical mindset fresh, but still with hints of classic old-school R&B.

In 2005, Wayne was signed by the Cartel Music Group and The Underdog Entertainment Group as a member of a Houston R&B/Pop group. Eventually, the group went their separate ways, opening the door for Wayne to move back to Houston and pursue his solo music career. Wayne notes, “I decided to become a solo artist for several reasons. One, creative control. I think nothing is more satisfying than being able to connect with your fans on a personal level through different experiences I encounter. My experiences birth my creativity. I don’t get that same satisfaction from being in a boy band. “

As a solo artist, Wayne has developed a sound that works for both his dance pop and smooth R&B records. He takes the pop sound of today that’s all over billboard charts and ties it into 90’s era R&B flair. From performance on the main stage, to vocals in the studio booth, Wayne’s musical expertise and entertainment charm enables him to reach fans in any arena and any stage.

In 2004, Wayne was a stage dancer for Usher’s epic Truth World Tour. Following his performance with Usher, Wayne has had the honor of working with pop sensations such as Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliot, and Ciara as he continues to perfect his musicianship.Wayne continues to work and grow as an artist in Houston, opening for Houston artists such as Z-Ro, Lil Flip, and Beat King. No matter where he opens, Wayne prides himself on his unique sound and theatrical performance. Recently, Wayne toured with Grammy Award winning artists Juicy J, Bone Thugs N Harmony, and DMX.

Wayne is currently working on his debut EP, “I AM”, which will release sometime Fall 2014. “I AM” will serve as a lens for fans to really look into who Wayne really is. Wayne states, “It’s inspired by the mistakes I have made in life—relationships, friends, and lovers—to the incredible leaps I have taken in the industry.
