STARR MEDIA GROUP

Starr media group (S.M.G) is much more than a record label. We are a creation 20 years in the making. Created by Ron “Ronnie Knottz” Clark and Andre” Dre Deniro” Davis. S.M.G. is the place where a talented artist, be it an M.C., singer, producer or model, can be given the special attention which actually makes them a star. By utilizing our already established industry relationships and capitalizing on our “sleep when you die” work ethic, we at S.M.G. are proud of the fact “we build stars baby”. In addition to being established in the United States, S.M.G has also launched its international office in Perth Australia, headed by Brad “Smallz” ( mixclik.com). With his “don’t underestimate me” attitude, Brad is more than prepared to bring that fire to the European market place. S.M.G. is poised to release its first product hosted by Street Sweepers own Dj. Radio “Mr. Sold out”. The debut release from S.M.G. will be a collaboration of all artists on the label. This freshman release will have hits by Joe Clark an M.C. from Maryland by way of Camarillo Ca. Joe is lyrically dangerous with his west coast swagger and East Coast fire. Rita Tyler, an R/B singer /Song writer with an angelic voice is a young woman with an old soul who has fresh new ideas which will bring R/B back to what the originators had intended. C-Gutta and OxPro, S.M.G.’s New Jersey Dynamic Duo will be causing the industry some problems. Together or solo these young men approach each project with an intensity that has not been displayed in a very long time. Always thinking of new ideas and always mastering their craft, they are always looking to provide a new approach to their musical game. S.M.G.’s production team is the 2006 (Rocwilders) Roc battle winners ‘The Presidentz” (Matt Heist, Raycean”Been Heard”, Gutta Rock and Trillagy formerly of Triple Prez). These producers will be a force to be reckoned with in 2007. The engineering arm of S.M.G. belongs to Evan Scott Smith who has worked with the who’s who of the industry(Mary J. Blige,Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson,50 cent and many more)S.M.G. will prove to be what the game has been missing , so we suggest you stay tuned for what we have in store for the world .

Jimmy Snakes “Nothing But Trouble” (Radio)

Jimmy Snakes  “Nothing But Trouble” (Radio)

Hailing from North Philadelphia JIMMY SNAKES Started listening to Hip-Hop at the tender age of 10. The first full Hip-Hop song he learned was Rob Base “It Takes Two”. His cousin introduced him to the music of Lyrical Rappers like Rakim, KRS-One, Kool-G Rap, and Big Daddy Kane. After hearing these Lyrical forefathers, JIMMY decided that he wanted to become a Hip-Hop LEGEND. As time went on JIMMY fell in love with the Death Row movement that consisted of Snoop Dogg and the Dog Pound. Between 13 and 14 Jimmy Snakes tried to imitate Snoop Dogg’s style. After a few battles of trying to sound like Snoop he learned that in the Rap Game you are not allowed to bite. JIMMY was also a die hard fan of Red Man aka Funk Doctor Spock. Groups like Wu Tang Clan, and Nice-N-Smooth also helped mold the young artist. By the age of 16 JIMMY began to find his own identity. By this time Nas, Biggie Smalls, Jay-Z, and Big-L began to take the rap game by storm. They were the East Coast premier players while Snoop Dogg, Tupac, and Dr. Dre were the West Coast players. At this time Hip-Hop was very exciting. JIMMY raised his level of Lyrical skills by imagining he was on a track with different artist and writing a verse as if he was on the song with them competing in friendly competition. He kept that formula with him down through the years. As life situations became more serious on the streets of North Philly, JIMMY’S Lyrics began to get more serious. JIMMY began to elaborate on the harsh reality of life. Now JIMMY is one with the hood, and is going to tell the whole world his story.

Ozy “Oz”

Ozy “Oz”

Song- OZ
Artist- OZY
Produced by Jay Fab & Illastrate

As one half of The SPADES (SPADES In Midnight Malevolence), Ozy with his partner in rhyme, Indy has blazed a musical path that stretches from their hometown of Columbia, South Carolina to Atlanta, Georgia where they attended College. It was in Atlanta that Ozy began to blossom as a solo artist while simultaneously feeding the streets with Spades tunes. It was also in Atlanta that Ozy met up with talented producers such as Illastrate and Koda to begin molding a unique sound not only for the Spades but for himself as well. It was by Koda and Illa’s beat ingenuity that the foundations for Ozy’s high-powered tracks “Staywitchu,” “ALB” and “FireFly” were laid. “ I make music for music lovers. I wanna take Hip Hop music beyond where it’s ever gone and replenish the edge and the soul that it had before it was a billion dollar industry,” says Ozy. The numerous songs that he and his crew, The UFO’s, have sprinkled throughout the Internet are a testimony to that. Between show dates and radio airplay in S.C. and ATL, Ozy and Jus Cuz(Nefarious and SinSkyy) with their label MOONDOX, Ltd.(est. in 2002) maintain a growing buzz.

As an individual Ozy will conquer not only the music industry but the world of film as well. He studied film at Clark Atlanta University following a note worthy history in the drama program at Richland Northeast High school back in South Carolina. During and since college, Ozy has acted in, written, directed and composed music for several projects. Some of which can be found at video stores nationwide. Excelling in multiple arts, including music production, he can only be labeled an artist. From his first rolls in grade school plays, to leading songs in the church choir, and local club performances around Columbia and Atlanta, Ozy has stayed on it. In his own words “Me and my fam have starved long enough. I gotta feed generations with my raps so in my eyes I gotta blow! No question!”

In any crowd, Ozy stands out like a soar thumb. Maybe it’s because of his laser beam focus on his goals, which was evident in the communications department at Clark Atlanta. Ozy was a 4-year member and eventually became president of 4-Reel Productions, a popular film organization at the university. Success through leadership has always been in the cards for him. Even as a 4-year old belting out his own renditions of hits by Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, and New Edition Ozy, or Corey Gillens as his parents named him, knew his destiny. His quote worthy lyrics give him a presence that is rare in today’s beat driven market and the soul that he brings to the game is paralleled by none. After the huge success of The Spade’s South Carolina hit “Incredible SC,” Ozy prepares his yet untitled solo debut album. With several projects in the works, and “The Last Dragon” mixtape, hosted by Hood Hard’s DJ Aaries, smashing the streets he will solidify himself as a music legend and further secure that his destiny will be fulfilled.

Badnewz a.k.a The Last MC “Its Whatever (Gwop Gang)

Badnewz a.k.a The Last MC

Badnewz a.k.a The Last MC grew up with what seems to be the typical black urban youth story.A soldier since a young age, Badnewz grew up in an unsettled household in which nobody would be envious. As an adolescent Badnewz was forced to make decisions men probably couldn’t. For most people their home is their haven, but for Badnewz the streets fulfilled that necessity. He’s endured the hoods of North Carolina,Virginia, D.C., and of course Boston and til this day he still feels more comfortable amongst the sirens,cracked pavement, night dwellers, and cognac stenches. He has done a lot of things he regrets,
but through his music, family and friends he’s become a most admirable man. There isn’t a more loyal, humble,and inspirational artist out there then this young man known as Badnewz.

From a music perspective Badnewz grew up listening to Kool G Rap, Nas, 2pac, and others.While listening to these artists as a youth he was amazed as they were able to put words together with such conviction and precision. Frustrated he couldn’t do the same, he asked his mother,a poet in her own right, to help him out and she did so writing him a rap. Although he appreciated
the effort, he describes the rhyme as “wack” but the format in which she wrote it gave him the blueprint to what he is now building. He has opened for Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, Memphis Bleek, Tiera Marie, Cherish, Slaine and others while garnering the attention of Hip-hop followers, personnel, and artists and has been appointed The Last MC. Readers, reviewers, listeners, I introduce to you Badnewz.
