Corey Woods AKA Raekwon, born January 12, 1970 in Brooklyn, New York) is an African American rapper and a member of the Wu-Tang Clan. In 1995 he released the album "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx" that was acclaimed world-wide and is considered as one of the best Wu-Tang solo albums. He is a pioneer of the Mafioso rap concept and sound.
Whether you know Dice Raw from his intro with The Roots in “The Lesson Part 1”, from 1994's Do You Want More?!!!??! or from his extensive credits as a hip hop artist and producer, you probably love him. A native of Philly, Dice’s work at The Studio has allowed him to work with some of the biggest names in music today including: Jill Scott, Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, TuPhace , Khari Mateen, Charles P. Bailey and Larry Gold.
Voss has often been called a "veteran in a rookie's body" for good reason. Hailing from the 215, he walks the notebook-paper thin line between respecting the traditional blueprint of emceeing and pushing hip-hop songwriting to new progressive heights. With a witty, forward-thinking lyrical style, boundless charisma, and an energetic, engaging live show, there's no denying his talent and drive. Voss has shared the stage with such diverse acts as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Wale, Mac Miller, Cam'ron, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Action Bronson, Run the Jewels, Ab-Soul, Pusha T, Talib Kweli, Freddie Gibbs, and many more. He's also packed numerous shows which he headlined in his hometown, including his recent album release show.
In addition, Voss is not afraid to apply his skills on the lyrical battlefield, as he is a BET 106 & Park Freestyle Friday hall of famer, racking up 5 wins in a row. His long-awaited debut LP Insatiable dropped in April 2016 via Monster Entertainment/Empire Distribution, and his lead singles "Respect My Mind" featuring Milton and "Average" featuring Azar (of Ground Up) have already been making waves. Armed with honesty, originality and an unmatched tenacity to spread his words to all who will listen, anyone with an open heart and mind cannot help but support Voss.
If you don’t know Frankie Vado, just listen to his lyrics. The words are ripped right out of his personal storybook. From the streets of Kensington in Philadelphia where he grew up to his professional life as a rapper working in North Philly, Frankie writes about what he knows.
He started rapping when he was in ninth grade in cyphers throughout the halls and cafeteria of his school, Kensington High. At first it was an outlet, a way for him to deal with the constant relocation and detachment experienced from living in foster homes.
He knew an education was important, so Frankie reluctantly put music on the backburner, while he earned two bachelor’s degrees from Penn State University. Frankie graduated from PSU in 2009 and his music career began. Since then he’s been working with his friend and producer “Phoe Notes” to develop their sound.
