Thanks to the close knit community of producers, graphic artists, industry reps, promo agents as well as emcees makes up the backbone of the Grand Arch’s overall success. Staples of the Hip Hop beat making society, super producers such as; Panik (Molemen Inc.), Vherbal (Enemy Soil), J Beats (Big Bang Latino) lay down the groundwork towards the completion on the debut LP, “Endangered Species”. CBR in house production from Ill-a-str8d has been responsible for such hits as, ‘Going On Tour’ feat. Main Flow (MOOD) and ‘So Smooth’ feat. J Sands (Lone Catalysts) and Rashad (Elev8tor Music) all available on Double Helix’s EP “The Strain” released 2012. Also mostly noted for his strong cannabis advocacy, Grand Architect solidified that stance when he worked with the Grand Buddha Master Himself B REAL of Cypress Hill creating the hit single, ‘Crop Circles’ of B Real’s solo album “The Harvest” released in 2010.

“The end result is ‘The Harvest’. B Real has recruited some of the hottest underground emcees to stand by his side. After releasing the first Cypress Hill album in 5 years earlier this year, B couldn’t imagine a better time to begin planting the seeds for the next crop of emcee’s to bless the mic.”

As early as age 9 groups like Digable Planets, Cypress Hill, Rakim etc. left an inspirational infection which to this day still has no cure. By 13 he had begun tinkering around with groundbreaking new music software such as Rebirth, Cubase, Soundforge producing beats for emcees in the local vicinity. Digging for records was a pastime throughout high school. Grand Arch sharpened his skills as an Ableton audio engineer, mixing and mastering until recording finally invaded the majority of the time. Finally a graduation from the sound academy provided by Douglas Geist of Sante Fe Center Studios which does the audio for TV’s popular series “Breaking Bad”, Grand Architect was more than confident in his musical aptitude. Now Grand Architect works on ensuring the continuity of our most precious commodity, Hip Hop.

Mikhail Lamont Ramsey Born April 5, 1991 is a Songwriter, Instrumentalist, and Saxophonist. He was raised in Jacksonville NC. At the age of 8, he went to Radio Shack to get a remote control car, but his dad brought him a keyboard instead mysteriously realizing he held a Key in Music. His parents then forced him into Piano Lessons for 6 years and band throughout grade school which he hated, although found it interesting that his Piano Instructor was born in 1903. By the age of 12, Mikhail was introduced to FL studios 3 where he began to express his music. With the influence from his cousin’s he began creating hip-hop instrumentals for them, yet softer instrumentals for mom. Although Mikhail grew up in church as a kid, he never liked going. He liked to party, dance and hangout instead. But in 2008, at the age of 17 he and his family started to attend a smaller church. As soon as they sat down the Pastor’s wife came to his mom with a very worried look; saying that she feels a presence of music amongst the family and that she didn’t really know how to explain it. Mikhail then told her that he knew how to play the saxophone and instantly she and her husband went and purchased one for him to play. In 2010 Mikhail moved off to college and later pawned his sax for money. He gained recognition with his hip-hop instrumentals throughout campus where he then came up with the stage name Sick Beatz. In 2011he decided to drop out of College to pursue his free life with Music.

Posted by: Scott

BTNH2

This film documents Bone Thugs-n-Harmony reuniting for the first time in over a decade. It tracks major events, beginning with Flesh-n-Bone’s release from prison while being met by the four other members of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. As we see the group on tour and in the studio, the film captures the essence of the group as a family while they become reacquainted with each other’s grown-up personalities. As they set about this new project, we follow the group as they plan a course of action to get a distribution deal with all five members on a major music label. During this process, as Flesh-n-Bone tries to readjust to society, he runs in to turmoil causing him to serve a short stint in LA County Jail for violation of parole. Along with Flesh-n-Bone, the group has also recently rejoined with Bizzy Bone, causing them to struggle with his alcohol problems and the impact it has on the group’s progress. Eventually, the group has an intervention, and although it doesn’t solve much, Bizzy Bone does manage to stay sober for the recoding of the UNI-5 Album. The film ultimately shows that Bone Thugs-n-Harmony are more than just a group, are a true family.

Elly Linen Brand started as a collection of drawings and ideas in 2009 by Kenny R. Fuller Jr. and was founded by Kenny and his company, Burries Brothers Productions, LLC, on March 11th 2015. It was created as an in house brand for the company and was released later in October of that year.

Kenny took a piece of his family story in building the brand to honor his grandmother Lucille, favorite aunt Cheryl and favorite cousin Melvin, all who share with him, the same interest in elephants. As a child, Kenny has fond memories of Lucille and Cheryl sharing how having elephant pictures or salutes in your home bring good fortune and blessings. Lucille and Cheryl both have breast cancer and to honor them through their healing journey the brand was debuted in October; breast cancer awareness month.

The word Elly, short for elephant, represents the logo and story behind the brand while Linen represents the meshing of the brand with originally made fashion. The brand logo and trademark is a red elephant wearing a tan bucket hat. Elly Linen has other designs and collections in the works; not all based on elephants. The brand’s slogan is “Impact the World” because that’s our mission and what we believe is possible!
