I am a Gangster!! When I use the word gangster I not talking about killing, selling dope, or a thug. A gangster has a set a values and beliefs that he live by and will not bend or break them for any one even if it cost his life. A gangster will never snitch even if he faces 100000 even if he was snitched on. A gangster will never cross any one he is close to for no amount of money. A Gangster is respectful and demands respect and non gangsters are disrespectful and only respect who can do somthing for them or who they admire or fear
PROPHET "The Heart Of Toledo" is CEO of Block Musiq Entertainment as well as an undeniably talented artist/songwriter. PROPHET brings something other artists lack….uncut realness. With a raw and uncut voice which has universal appeal, his music paints vivid pictures of everyday living in urban America. PROPHET exclaims "I am an artist who paints pictures of my life, thoughts, and where I come from. I want to touch the hearts of the people with my music" and indeed he does. In a time when one hit wonders have become an industry standard, PROPHET intends on emerging as a force to be reckoned with. The album "Rap 2 The Top or Back 2 The Block" is scheduled for release in 2008 and is assured to have great success.
David Blake, better known to many by his stage name, Stones was born July 31st 1988 in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, New York. Stones is the cousin of Kenyatta Blake aka Buckshot who is a fellow Brooklyn emcee and Co-CEO of the extremely successful independent hip hop label, Duck Down Records. Stones has many monikers/ aliases such as, S.t., S.t.ones (Stack Them Ones), Rollin Stones, David Blake The Great, The Ressurection of Perfection, S.t. The Legend Before The Legacy and many more. Stones credits his extensive list of "a.k.a.'s" to Wu Tang who he is a big fan of and is known across the globe for having many aliases.
Rapping was a hobby Stones claims to have picked up from watching the Black moon frontman, Buckshot as well as many other emcees from Hip hop's "Golden era". “I use to just sit down and listen to Wu-Tang; particularly Meth all day to study how he would put words together and then formulate my own rhymes with that same structure until I got down the basics and started to develop my own style" sais Stones. When asked about Buckshot's influence on his career choice Stones had this to say, "Buck was the one that let me know it was real because I use to think rappers were some kind of super human’s beamed down from the sky [laughs] but, he was someone I actually saw in the flesh often and saw on T.V. too so that made me believe that I could do it too".
