T.I.: Clifford Harris, Jr., more commonly known as T.I., is one of Atlanta hip hop's most talented and successful rappers. T.I. has released six hit albums in only eight years, and his tour dates (especially his "farewell" dates) have become some of the most popular in hip hop today. T.I.'s latest release, No Mercy has topped the rap charts and already been certified gold, despite the fact that the album was released while the rapper was in prison. As T.I. finds himself in jail once again, there probably won't be any 2011 tour dates until he's released in September, but fans can enjoy the recently release single, "We Don't Get Down Like Y'all."

At the age of 21, T.I. released his debut album, I'm Serious; though the album was a flop, he would experience exponentially more success with the release of Trap Muzik in 2003. The album was well received by music critics and quickly went platinum thanks to singles like "24's" and "Rubberband Man." T.I. scored another hit with King in 2006, with the album topping the charts and winning a two Grammys. This lead to headlining tour dates that would thrill fans as the rapper went in and out of jail. T.I.'s follow-up album, Paper Trail did similarly well and the artist won his third Grammy for the hit single "Swagga Like Us", which also featured Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Lil' Wayne.

While there won't be any summer tour dates for T.I. in 2011, he has stated that he will be releasing an album soon "to hold y'all over till I get back in action." A precursor to that is the recently released song "We Don't Get Down Like Y'all", which features B.o.B. and can be found on T.I.'s website.

Juvenile: Juvenile (born Terius Gray on March 25, 1975 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA) is an African American gangsta rapper. At the age of 19, he began recording in a distinctive southern style with Being Myself (1994, Warlock Records). The album's hit song "Bounce for the Juvenile" gave name to the southern sing-songy rap style known as "bounce".

In 1997, Solja Rags, Juvenile's debut with Cash Money Records, was an underground hit. In 1999, Solja Rags was re-released nationally to ride the wave of popularity Juvenile was enjoying with the release of 400 Degreez and its smash single, "Back That Azz Up", which eventually became a pop crossover hit in early 2000. Warlock Records released a remixed version of Being Myself at the same time. After the lackluster reception of The G-Code and Project English (2001), which only contained the very minor hit "Mamma Got Ass", Juvenile left Cash Money Records, releasing The Compilation in 2002 with his new crew and label UTP Records (Uptown Project Records) crew which Young Buck was signed to. Juvenile returned to Cash Money in 2003 to release Juve the Great. His latest album is Reality Check (2006) released by UTP/Atlantic Records. He has released a total of nine albums.

In the summer of 2004, his Juve The Great album spawned a massive hit called "Slow Motion". The song topped Billboard's Hot 100 chart on August 7, 2004 knocking Usher's "Confessions" (Part II) out of number one after only two weeks. It was the first Hot 100 No. 1 for Juvenile and the late Soulja Slim. The song managed to achieve this feat essentially on the strength of urban radio airplay alone as it had not yet had massive pop crossover success.

Following critical and commercial acclaim for "Juve The Great", Juvenile and his UTP crew went on to create the hit song "Nolia Clap" and Juvenile was able to use this as leverage in getting a new deal for himself and UTP at Atlantic Records. Now off of Cash Money and taking on the role of both CEO and artist, Juve has released his much anticipated new album Reality Check. The album features guest appearances by Fat Joe, Ludacris, Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Brian McKnight, Trey Songz, Bun B, 8-Ball, Skip and Wacko with production by Lil' Jon, Scott Storch. Mannie Fresh and Cool & Dre, among others. Juvenile has also done a New York and New Orleans remix to his single "What's Happenin'". The New York remix features N.Y. rappers Papoose and Jae Millz and the New Orleans remix features N.O. rapper B.G. and producer Mannie Fresh.

In 2005, Juvenile's Slidell, Louisiana home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. In the aftermath of the hurricane, he has been working with fellow New Orleans rapper Master P and other hip hop artists to raise funds and supplies for the victims of the hurricane. Juvenile is currently residing in Atlanta, Georgia along with other artists from the UTP record label.

Juvenile's album Reality Check debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 174,000 copies. It yields singles "Rodeo", "Get Ya Hustle On", "What's Happenin'", and "Way I Be Leanin'" featuring Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Skip, & Wacko. Juvenile, Wacko and Skip (UTP) just release a new track titled "Damn N---a Damn"

Juvenile has a wife (Sherdonna) and four children.

E-40: The term “legend” is not loosely thrown around in hip-hip and for good reason. There are not many rappers that fit the bill. But E-40, “The Ambassador of the Bay,” is one that definitely does. After 12 albums and 15 years, three gold and one platinum album (one with his group The Click) 40 Water is ready to unleash his patented slang and unforgettable flow to a new generation of fans with his debut album for BME Recordings/Sik Wid It/Reprise, My Ghetto Report Card.

It’s no secret why 40 has remained current, he stays on top of the streets, “I stays woke. “I like to put a new twist to what I do,” says 40. “Every now and then you got to reinvent yourself by getting with these young cats, that way I stay fresh in the game. That’s the secret to my longevity.”

With his latest album My Ghetto Report Card, E-40 once again re-invents himself by introducing the nation to a movement that has been bubbling in his native Bay Area for the past few years - Hyphy. Like Crunk in Atlanta or Screw Music in Houston, Hyphy music is the sonic component of the new Bay Area youth culture.

The energy of the youth created a power so strong that the music coming out of the bay was forced to follow suit, giving the streets a soundtrack to the movement. Hyphy has a dance component, where dancers compete with each other for dominance of the crowd – as displayed by the award-winning Bay Area dance group, The Animaniaks, in E-40’s hit video “Tell Me When To Go.” This ultra-intense form of freestyle dancing is called going dumb. The customary fashion for Hyphy is jeans, white tees, dreads and big sunglasses called “stunna shades.”

Another major component of Hyphy is the car culture. The ride of choice right now in the Bay is the scraper, the classic 4-door American sedan (Buick LaSabres, Park Avenues, et al) with a hood twist. A pimped out scraper is not complete without colored tint, whistling pipes, oversized rims or spinning hubcaps and a stereo system powerful enough to knock pictures off the wall. It’s not just about how the car looks though, being able to gas, brake and dip, do figure 8’s, donuts and ghost ride the whip (driving a car hanging out the door making it appear as if the car is driving itself) is a major part of just how Hyphy Bay youth get.

Twista: This Chicago-based gangsta rapper made his recording debut on the platinum single, “Po Pimp.” With Big Beat/Atlantic Records, he released his solo debut, “Adrenaline Rush,” followed by “Mobstability” in 1998 and “Legit Ballin’” in 1999. Twista hooked up with Ludacris, Jay-Z and other rap stars in 2002 to record his third album. Recent albums include “Kamikaze” (2004) and “The Day After” (2005), which contained the hit single, “Girl Tonite,” with Trey Songz.

Scarface: Like in the criminal world where there's a big difference between being a hustler and being a boss, the music biz sets galactic space between the role of an artist and that of a label head. The fans unknowingly segregate artists who try to gain street credibility from those who get credited by the streets. The latter for each of the past comparisons represent what Brad Jordan, known to most as Scarface, is to the universe that is hip-hop. What Scarface is a hip-hop ambassador. He represents mastered skill, preserved integrity, immense respect, quiet leadership and vocal tutelage. But ask the average fan and you'll probably get a simple summary statement like "Face is a dope MC!" Since stepping on the scene with his Houston, Texas cohorts, Geto Boys back in '90, then waking the world a year later with his arctic delivery on the classic single "Minds Playing Tricks On Me" he's been putting it down for the south. There wasn't any other rapper who brought across such dark images so vividly, spoke about the fiery bottoms of hell with such a frozen tongue, yet warm voice. Hip-hop never saw him coming and now they keep coming back. Fans flock to him and his new releases. The only difference is many of his fans are his peers. You'd be hard pressed to find a rhyme heavyweight who hasn't graced a Face album. To name a few: Ice Cube, Tupac, Jay-Z, Too Short, Daz, Kurupt, Redman and UGK all leaped at the opportunity to share a track with Mr. Face. This has allowed him to extend his status from H-town diplomat to global ambassador for rap. He brought the world to the American Geto. "I didn't put up a boundary on my music," Scarface says. "Though I rep my hood and rep my city, my music was for everybody from California to Cleveland to Chicago to Washington DC to New York to Mississippi to Atlanta. I didn't want to put no boundaries on my music, no Houston boundary." But that's Face's worth in the rap sector of notepads and vocal booths. His living legacy surpasses that. On rap music's flip side, Brad Jordan is a boss in hip-hop label juggernaut that is Def Jam Records. Three years ago he was anointed as president of their southern division, Def Jam South. And in alignment with the success of his recording career, Scarface scored big from the start of his exec tenure. His first signee, the rambunctiously engaging ATL representer, Ludacris sold three million copies of his debut Back For The First Time and is threatening to outdo his freshman outing with his sophomore LP Word Of Mouf, which has been blazing charts with hits like the Jazze Phae orchestrated "Area Codes" and the Organized Noize produced "Saturday." Not only has Def Jam allowed Face the opportunity to exercise his muscle in nurturing artists, they've allowed him to add to his rhyme resume by relocating Face from his former label Virgin and making the house that Rush built his new home--as an artist. The result: Face's seventh solo album, The Fix. "My destiny is in my hands now. It's not in nobody else's hands," he states. "I make the final decision on my product. I'm not obligated to nothing and I know that with Def Jam behind me, I know I'm a give them a different look." With The Fix, Scarface did not only keep his solo streak of either gold or platinum achievements alive, but he also got the recognition for the reason his albums have been such canvases of perfectly woven rhymes to music----his production. The music has always complemented Scarface's sharp oratorical because he's always had a huge role in his LP's production. Check the past Scarface album credits and you'll see Skinny Gangsta, Face's production company since he entered the rap game. "I had outside producers doing music but I ultimately produced my whole album myself," he informs. Scarface is a true legend in the Hip-Hop game and having blazed many trails with his music, he is now ready to move into film and television on a very serious level.
