Rameer “R.J” Ellison was raised in Atlanta,GA. R.J has been in love with rap music for as long as he can remember. Because of this love for rap music, he started writing music at the age of 11.
Although he was from the south, the southern rappers never seemed to intrest him as much as the east coast rappers. R.J grew up listening to Jay-z, Eminem, Biggie, Tupac, 50 cent, and Jadakiss whom had a great influence on his style of writing. Later as R.J got a little older he started connecting with southern music and started listening to Young Jeezy, T.I,and Ludacris.
When he was in the 8th grade he did alot of battle rapping, where he was highly recognized for his talent and his way with words. After numerous hours spent in the basement recording night after night, R.J’s father started to wonder what R.J and Hoven were down in the basement doing. R.J’s father listened to the music and was suprised by what he heard and instantly recognized the talent and started to invest his money in R.J’s music career.
Patience is a virtue. If you wait for all good things to come to you rather than rushing it, you will receive everything that God has to offer you. Also you’ll be able to handle all he has to offer you. If you rush too many things may come at once it and may all come down on you
Hoven The Great was born Antuan Benjamin Major on March 14. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island.
Antuan moved to Lawrenceville, Georgia in 2001 after the death of his brother Joseph Avery Tutt Jr. Shortly after moving to Lawrenceville, Georgia, Antuan started rapping. Antuan has made nine (9) mixtapes locally and he is currently working on his tenth (10th), which will be his first official mixtape.
Jay-z, Nas, Biggie, Tupac, and Eminem played major influences on Antuan’s life. After moving to the south, T.I. and other southern rappers began to influence him. This explains his versatility and the southern accent he has on certain beats.
Roscoe Dash grew up rapping with Hoven and the two collaborated several times to make great songs. Roscoe Dash and Antuan also performed together. Antuan has decided that Roscoe would be his motivation to succeed. It is Antuan’s plans for him and RJ to work hard and to meet Roscoe at the top.
