Ill Characters

Not your average hip hop group, Ill Characters and ICM (Ill Characters Media, LLC.) are as eclectically, actively creative in their work as they are diverse and, again, eclectic in their members' origins.

Ill Characters aren't your average hip hop group.

Four of the members are black, two are white, and one is biracial. Three are from the South, three are from the East, and one is from the Midwest. Their spiritual affiliations range from Islam to Buddhism. After producing the critically-acclaimed independent film 'Conversation for a Dollar', the Ill Characters are slated to release their first LP, entitled Mental Illness, on October 1st 2002.

What makes the Ill Characters' sound so unique is the diversity of its creators. The combination of divergent accents, cadences, and rhyme patterns creates a powerful, complex, and completely original group sound.

The Ill Characters possess a special blend of personal charisma and physical appeal that fascinates audiences. Their material is edgy enough to satisfy the hardest-core rap fan, but also engaging and approachable enough to attract mainstream listeners.

Mental Illness is at once a return and a departure. It is a return to the traditional values of hip hop music - intelligent lyrics, inventive rap styles, and creative beats. But it s a departure from the present incarnation of hip hop culture and its obsession with material wealth and exultation of style over substance.

Mental Illness is something of an anomaly among hip hop records. With complete in-house production, the album contains no samples and features live instrumentation from many talented musicians including funk jazz guitarist Zedrick Kelley, Memphis vocalist Ashley Elise, and Greek percussionist Geno Kalkanoglu.

'THE MUSIC OF SSL - "Dirty' But Not Disrespectful"
There are a kazillion rap groups in the "Dirty South" all trying to get put on.
Forcefully emerging from the rap pack comes SSL. "Deep and Dirty" is the name of their upcoming album and it's also how they describe their music. What sets this group apart from the rest of the "rap herd?' First of all, they were ON TIME for their mini-interview! Rappers on time? Egad!! Secondly, each member has his own personality, own special quality that he brings to the SSL table.
"Budliesi' is the "party, party' member, very upbeat. "Jewell" is the glue that holds the group together because he tends to the BUSINESS of SSL. If you could merge Marvin Gaye and Tupac into one person, you would get 'Smooth E. Sir Droopy -makes females' hearts melt because he cites his favorite woman as being "my mom. She is very supportive." Although the group writes and performs the usual heavy bass, "ballas from the dirty," party anthems, they also write relationship songs that will have everyone "taking a listen."

Smooth E's delivery makes you feel very emotional because he sounds as if he's longing for someone and searching for something. "My longing is for my dad. He wasn't there for me. Jewell was my male mentor," says Smooth E. Budliesi has this advice for women: 'Be true." When asked why he runs to trifling women, smiles and answers, 'I ask myself that question sometimes!" Alrighty then. "I know why Budliesi runs to trifling women,' chimes in Sir Droopy, "they're the freakiest!" Uh, thanks Sir Droopy. In the middle of all the laughter and music is the quiet figure of Jewell. Taking care of business. Making sure that SSL is not here TODAY and gone TODAY, as is the case with a lot of rap groups.

Hardy Boyz ( 803)

The Group 803
Anthony Teasley A.K.A Kool-Aid,
Charles Rhinehart A.K.A Mr. Low, Felipe Reid A.K.A. Big Leep

Who is 803: 803 are three young southern rappers from Rock Hill, SC. The three have been together for over eight years. They have been entertaining since the age of 9; Kool-Aid was the rapper, Mr. Low and Big Leep were dancers. Things have changed over the years and so have their careers. Now, the highly respected rap trio 803 has taken things to new heights. The trio entered into several talent showcases, and by no one’s surprise is winning almost every event. After performing in the local shows, the trio felt it was time to take it a step further. 803’s first big performance came on May5, 1996 at the Charlotte West Festival where independent and mini-major labels were in the audience and recognized the talent of the three young rappers. Shortly after, they also shocked the crowd by a hot appearance at the Two Bad record release party. Since then, 803 have signed with the independent label Punch Line Entertainment and have completed their debut album “You Don’t Want No Drama Down Here.”

Objective: TO build awareness of 803 with the single “Down Here”. This will build the anticipation for the full release that will ship in high numbers and become a top seller throughout the 2nd and third quarters. As we all know, southern Hiphop has made a major impact on the music industry in the past 5-7 years. We’re looking to take two young country thugs from the street corner style of rapping to national superstar entertainers. Every generation has teen idols, DMX, Nas, Jay-Z, Cash Money, Master P, Puff Daddy, and now 803.

Influences: 803 has been influenced by rappers such as Scarface, Trick Daddy, DMX, UGK, Dr. Dre, Outkast, and Master P.

Goals: To achieve platinum status and become CEO of Hardy Style Records within the next 5 years.

Accomplishments: 803 have been featured on the movie sound track “In This Corner”, performed with Ying Yang Twins, Miracle, Uncle Luke, Ludacris, and was recently asked to complete a college tour with KRS ONE.
