RedFox Da Arsonist Burned Down the Underground

RedFox with Da Salute

RedFox with Da Salute

In the music game, some were destined to play.  RedFox Da Arsonist (a.k.a “RF”) began his life as Edward Joseph Swaby in Brownsville Brooklyn, NY, USA.  He was one of eight siblings to his West Indian parents, Prudence Walters & Edward Leonard Swaby. Growing up with a broken home, money troubles, and a harsh environment, RF learned the hard life the hard way eventually turning his talents loose as an M.C.

Hip hop was all around him in Queens where he moved to, and he felt connected through the history of the land and the family of Hip Hop superstars such as Run DMC. Even when away from his family at a group home, a guard on duty let him meet his personal friends in the game: Pee Wee Kirkland and Vinnie from Naughty By Nature. RF listened to Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang, Master Ace, Nas, Biggie, Da Brat, Tupac, & even The Fugees to which he pulled his inspiration and began free-styling.

After being encouraged by a few compliments by fellow dudes at the local basketball court, RF met up with rappers Teff and Warlock to form Desert Eagles. The producer of the Crystal Lake imprint hooked them up with shows with Jadakiss and Fabulous and backstage passes and met Lil Bow Wow, Lil Romeo, & Lil Zane. In 2001, the group split up.

2004 marked a rebirth for RedFox Da Arsonist with his first solo release, “Who GOD Bless, No Man Curse” selling independently 10,000 copies. 2005 he released “The Industrial Revolution” with somewhat lesser success. In 2006, RF began an onslaught of constant shows at various clubs and venues that all led up to his 2008 album, “IR2, Corporate Conglomerate”. Things started to really pick up, and RedFox has since appeared in magazine and print, got a ringtone deal, performed at the New Jersey Music Conference, performed at Get Your Buzz Up, appeared on WebTV’s 24/7 Grind with Frankie the Boss (which is about to get picked up by Direct TV).

Red Fox Da Arsonist’ latest project is the mixtape series “Welcome To Goonsville Enemy of the State” which can be heard on Dotpiff Links: Volume 2 | Volume 3 .

Gully Davis born and raised on the mean streets of Brooklyn in the heart of East New York, where only the strong


survive. He began rapping at the young supple age of eleven.  May 8, 1999 a tragic turn of event occurred when he was in accident in Staten Island being hit by a truck and a bus left young gully in a coma, it took a lot of strength, but he managed to bounce back. More enthusiastic and more focused he began to take rap more seriously.  With the help of Asiah Lewis he started ghost writing for known artist and besides recording in the cutting room he also worked for bad boy entertainment that was only until he decided to become an artist himself.

After losing his oldest and favorite brother, he felt as though he had to make away for his family with that as his motivation he headed for greatness with no turning back he continues to move forward with only success on his mind in his words “The stakes are high all the chips are on the table” so with that said much love to 718 the producer.


Fabolous – You Be Killin Em

Posted by: Scott


Fabolous scored a bit hit, “Can’t Deny It,” right out of the gate in 2001, instantly establishing himself as a rising East Coast rap star, the song’s combination of street-savvy toughness and pop crossover appeal representative of the rapper himself. Streetwise and hardened yet young and graced with poster-boy looks, the Brooklyn rapper (born John Jackson on November 18, 1977) was one of the first East Coast MCs to embrace the bling mentality of the South as well as the gangsta swagger of the West Coast, all the while incorporating a subtle undercurrent of pop-rap into his music.

He was among the first of a new breed of New York City rappers, later and most notably to include 50 Cent, who were able to cross over well among multiple markets without losing street credential. His youth was key, but so was his bravado, and when Fabolous could balance this persona optimally and find himself a production formula to fit, commercial success resulted.

His breakthrough single, “Can’t Deny It” — (a Rick Rock production featuring a 2Pac sample and a Nate Dogg feature, as well as a catchy hook) — preceded his debut album, Ghetto Fabolous (2001), and generated quite a bit of buzz.  The album also featured production work by the Neptunes, but only managed one other single, “Young’n,” which failed to match the success of “Can’t Deny It.”

When Fabolous returned with his sophomore album, Street Dreams (2003), he capitalized on his initial renown, racking up three major hits: “Trade It All,” “Can’t Let You Go,” and “Into You” — the latter two breaking into the Top Five of Billboard’s Hot 100.  Later in 2003, More Street Dreams, Pt. 2: The Mixtape hit stores just in time for the holiday season. Comprised of various street-level recordings originally released on mixtapes, this compilation didn’t spawn any hits, but it did reaffirm Fabolous’ hip-hop credentials in the wake of his string of pop crossover singles. The following year brought with it another album, Real Talk (2004), which didn’t offer any major pop crossover hits (“Baby” was a minor one) yet did boast a monster Just Blaze production, “Breathe,” which further shored up Fabolous’ hip-hop credentials.

The young rapper took most of 2005 and 2006 off, and shortly before the scheduled release of his next album, in late 2006, he made headlines when he was shot in the leg and subsequently charged with weapons possession (police found two guns in the car that transported him to the hospital). Def Jam — which signed Fabolous after sending Musiq to Atlantic in a unique trade situation — released From Nothin’ to Somethin’ (2007). The album debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (number two overall) and spawned a series of singles, including the Top Ten hit “Make Me Better” featuring Ne-Yo. Two years later the hit single “Throw It in the Bag” would land on his album Loso’s Way, a loose, conceptual full-length inspired by the film Carlito’s Way. In 2010 he released There Is No Competition 2: The Grieving Music, a “concept mixtape” which aimed to bury rival rappers.

COREY DRUMZ the youngest son of 1981 BMI Song Writer Of The Year, Larry Banks and soul singer Jaibi joins the Global Attack

Posted by: Scott


Born Corey L. Banks, Drumz (formerly known as CeStyle) is the youngest son of 1981 BMI Song Writer Of The Year, Larry Banks and soul singer Jaibi.

Raised in Hollis Queens NYC, in a household where music came as natural as breathing, Drumz took to it like a sponge. Getting his knowledge of writing and song structure from his father and his emotional delivery and voice from his mother (Jaibi).

Drumz was offered numerous scholarships to prestigious performing arts schools by the age of 13 but turned them all down. At the age of 14, Drumz lost his mother and become more street oriented. He gave up singing and started releasing his talents through Hip Hop under the stage name CeStyle becoming one of the most respected MC’s on the East Coast. At the age of 21 his father passed and shortly after, Drumz became a member of EPMD’s original Hit Squad as well as MC Serch’s Serchlight Mob (Nas, O.C. and CeStyle & Kamal B Wize better known as the group Total Pack). While in the group Total Pack, Drumz was signed to Columbia Records making history as being the first Hip-Hop artists to be signed to multi album deal without having a demo (the only other artist to do that before him was Janice Joplin who ironically was also signed to Columbia Records). The deal with Columbia didn’t work to Drumz’ advantage due to creative differences between himself and his partner at the time, Kamal B Wise, as well as a lack of guidance and attention from his label but that would not stop his growth. Drumz then signed a solo deal with Wild Pitch/EMI still using the name Total Pack and had 3 songs featured on the classic Wild Pitch Blends promo tape. Wild Pitch eventually lost its distribution with EMI before releasing his album leaving Corey stuck on the label for 2 years without a record being released. Through due diligence, Drumz obtained his release from Wild Pitch relinquishing them of all financial obligations in return for control of his masters. Drumz then went on to release records on various compilation albums with DJ Stretch Armstrong (Stretch Armstrong Presents: Lessons 1 and 2) as well as a various 12″ inch singles. Changing his stage name in 2002 from CeStyle to Corey Drumz, today he is incorporating all of his musical skills to make a unique sound in unmatched by any other artist.

Conceived in 1997 and incorporated in 2004, Iron Kladd Entertainment Inc. was formed out of Drumz’ frustration with many labels that had neither the capability nor the willingness to nurture its Hip Hop artists effectively. After releasing various independent 12″ singles, as well as Mixtapes & Street LP’s under the I.K.E. umbrella Corey felt that the best way for his music and the music of many other emerging artists to reach its fullest potential was to create a vehicle dedicated to that pursuit. I.K.E. and ItsIKESpace.com are 2 of the main components of that vehicle as well as a merchandise line that carries wide a range of I.K.E. & Corey Drumz products from T-Shirts and jackets to sneakers, skateboards and more.

Welcome to the world of The Bullet Boyz. As the first Harlem – Brooklyn duo ever, this combination of raw talent brings something that Hip-Hop has been missing for a long time – GREAT MUSIC!!!

The Bullet Boyz are comprised of two New York City avant-garde artists: ManChild from Harlem and Luch, representing Brooklyn. In their music they won’t tell you that they’re going to kill 100 people or sell 100 kilos of cocaine; they feel that would be unrealistic and not true to their selves. “We put our real lives into our music, and that’s what makes us different from everybody else” says Luch. When asked what their lives consist of, Man-child replies “Partying likes it’s our last day on earth!” Their lyrical narratives impart tales of the NYC night-life, jet flights, chasing money and the pursuit of gorgeous women. But don’t mistake their music for cookie cutter rap; their lyrics are just as fresh as their swagger. Man-child’s flow is rife with punch-lines and metaphors that would give Lil Wayne a run for his ‘Young’ money. And Luch’s depictions of his lifestyle, painted by his infectious wordplay, are as vivid as HD.

Although Man child and Luch are the only rappers in the organization, there are over 100 Bullet Boyz throughout New York City with direct ties to the group. However, they are quick to point out they are not a gang; The Bullet Boyz is more of a fraternity.Website:http://reverbnation.com/bulletboyzinc
