Born Cameen Matthew Copeland March 23, in Brooklyn, New York to an African American mother before later moving to the suburbs of New Hampshire. Cameen became interested in music at an early age. He was able to develop his singing ability while working closely with his cousin, prolific jazz session bass player William Allen. As a teenager Cameen’s interest gravitated towards sports. This would lead to his sharing of co-mvp honors in New Hampshire’s High School State Soccer Championship, as well as garnering a position on the all tournament 2nd team. Shortly there after Cameen would attend St.John’s University of Queens, New York. However, due to an untimely incident, which would leave him slightly impaired. His stay at St. John’s would be cut short. He then returned to New Hampshire where he received his Bachelors degree in Marketing and Sociology from Rivier College. Upon graduating Cameen started a business entitled CKC Entertainment Group LLC/CC Elite Urban Wear. The company freely promotes social events, product branding, their own Clothing line and special charities of all kinds. Cameen’s love of music never stopped. And, in 2009 he would collaborate with a group of other highly inspired artist. Unfortunately, it never amounted to much. He then decided to take some time off to focus on writing and learning more about the business aspect of the music industry. This would ultimately lead to the July 2010 album release entitled “ Cameen.” Coming off the success of “Cameen” and determined to create even more of a buzz. Cameen began spreading his company paraphernalia (Tee shirts, Baseball caps, Sport Tags, CDs, Posters and Bags) throughout New England and down south. This activity created a whirlwind amongst his fans, who were then asking for more. It would eventually lead to Cameen’s Sophomore album entitled “LuvJoy”, which was re-released Aug 7th. It, “luvJoy” clearly depicts Cameen’s lifelong connection to Urban R&B and Jazz. And, the sense of style, melody, deep emotional songwriting, and memorable hooks make “LuvJoy”, an incredibly dynamic album to listen to. Two of the albums most notable singles, “Play”, and “Get It On-Remix”, are currently burning up the radio and club airwaves, and can be listened to and purchased here on the website along with other bonus material. Currently Cameen is working on material for his third release and preparing for his 2012 tour. Each month until June/July 2012 he will release a snip-it of a each single that will be part of his next release. Please stay tuned for more…….
The release of the EP entitled ” The Next Level “, has been a major success. Four of the six singles, My Wisdom, Go Away, Do You Wanna & Arrogant ” Cuz I Can ” have done extremely well in the clubs and on radio stations. The single which truly has people buzzing is ” My Wisdom ” . Cameen takes you there with his vocals and his lyrical depiction of a woman of the world! If you haven’t already heard it. Go to iTunes and listen to the sample.. Simply type in The Next Level by Cameen. The sample will definitely make you want to listen to the entire song…Since releasing the EP, which I have to admit, is volumes above his last release. Cameen has embarked on a number of performance opportunities in Canada, Atlanta and New York City. And he’s received multiple publishing offers. This Ep is definitely one that can be listened to from top to bottom. You will enjoy it!

Since taking off this past August, J. Bizness' instrumental album Flight Plan has gotten much mileage with fans and critics alike. The album, the first in Mello Music Group's Instrumental Series, is a collection of 24 selections with a crisp, spacey sound inspired by the freedom of flight.
Back when Flight Plan dropped, as a celebratory bonus, MMG leaked a track by The Black Opera over one of J.'s heatrocks. The result was "Giraffes," a testament to the sinister seduction of addiction. Now the involved parties are proud to share the visuals for "Giraffes," directed by Andy Madeleine. The video features our perpetually loc'd out duo narrating the story of a fine young woman descending into the habit of getting high. Over J.'s smooth, electronic and airy production, TBO's morality tale is a banger.
Combining talents, two of MMG's finest come together to make material to stand the test of time. Both J. Bizness' Flight Plan and The Black Opera's Libretto: of King Legend are both available now.

Evil Ones don't want to see you prosper, that's why you must destroy evil with something that's useful. Its okay to create conscious music and have a positive message, when its all said and done Quality in Quantity is about giving the world something good to hold on to for years to come!
From the soul of many men send this to the people Can't hear straight we allowed what happened only once On the hunt for something great take what we need Feed the children save they soul from the grasp Pass the message through the grape vine Marvin tried to tell you mental illness is the condition Will not sale out won't assimilate take the cat Save the soul from her foul thoughts ruthless behavior Read this page take the people to a new state free em all Let them know it's more out here than one killing another So for the life of me we contribute this dedication For the love not for fame success is fan based Never asked to be liked people decide good or bad Sending kids back to the lab but no return

It's taken nearly two years but Kym Hamilton, the artist formerly known as Gaza Kim is ready to add her refreshing sound to the Reggae/ Dancehall Industry. By the time she'd been "discovered" by Vybz Kartel as a teenager, Kym had already had some success in televised talent Competitions in Jamaica like the famed Digicel Rising Stars, Tastees Talent Search and Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall. Before that she'd tasted local success winning medals as a member of her School Choir.
In 2008 she was introduced to Kartel who opined at the time – "Kim has the ability to go very very far in the music business". To this end he signed her to a management deal with his then fledgeling Gaza Empire and promptly gave her the stage name Gaza Kim.
'Teenage Pregnancy', ' Amen', 'Bills' (also Ft: Lisa Hype), and a remake of Shabba Ranks' 'Twice My Age' with her then mentor, Kartel and 'I Love You' served to consolidate her promise as a hit maker. Unfortunately, the union was dissolved after an incident involving members of the Gaza entourage and Kim and her brother left the singer hospitalized and seeking to sever all ties with the "Empire". "Sometimes I try to avoid that name", Revealed Kym in an interview in England, "But it's the name that got me into the music business."
She then approached Bounty Killer – an artist renowned for recognizing and nurturing young talent -at a nightclub in Kingston. The artist who was already aware of Kim directed her to his in-house Producer and engineer, Austin 'Kevin' Green of Payday Music. The Grammy Award-winning producer who incidentally shared a birthday with her received her with open arms. With that she would become an affiliate of Bounty Killer's Alliance organization and released tracks like 'Haffi Come Back', 'Bubble', 'When We're Apart', 'Whine Pon It', 'Hush and 'Got To Go Right Now'. "Right now I just see myself as Kym Hamilton – some people call me Alliance Kym. When I go to certain places and I'm expecting them to call me 'Kym Hamilton' or 'Alliance Kym' – they're sticking with the 'Gaza Kim' and…. I don't know….. Right now I'm just going for the fans! – If you want to call me Gaza Kim you call me Gaza Kim! If you want to call me Alliance Kym – you call me Alliance Kym – I am one person and I will answer!
I guess I'll just have to accept it because it's the birth name."
In August 2011 Kym was nominated for the Best International Female Artist Award at the British Reggae Awards with two of her sheroes – Tanya Stephens and Queen Ifrica. Just to be nominated with those ladies alone after the long journey she'd had to reach there felt like a win in itself! So regardless of the outcome you can rest assured that Kym will still be smiling.

Growing up in the streets of Kingston 13, Jamaica, Jermaine Anderson also known as 'Kalano' could always envision his future as a leader & visionary in and of music. His earliest association with music started about the age of seven while being around his uncle Earl Turner (known to many as Biggy) one of dancehall’s hottest fashion designers. At that time Biggy was designing for the likes of Shabba Ranks, Buju banton, Pinchers, and other pioneers of the nineties who all had a influence on his career decision.
1997 Mona High School in St. Andrew, Jamaica, was where he really discovered how powerful his words were. Kalano would be found on the school grounds with friends ‘toasting’ and beating on the class desks to create various rhythms attracting students sometimes even teachers to stop and take listen. These moments in time were contributing factors that helped to mould the type of artiste that Kalano would grow to become. His career started as a rapper as he and his friends Chillz, Avalanch & G.Cash joined and formed the group Fo5ifth(Who is today still the biggest and best rap group in Jamaica). At the time the group was working with super producer the late and much respected Daniel‘Blaxx’Lewis who was responsible for some of dancehalls biggest hits. After high school Kalano decided to explore the dancehall aspect of his talent, having his fans identify with his real, unbiased and undeniable wit. The other members of Fo5ifth were in agreement with Kalano’s transition. Kalano continued to work closely with good friend and producer extra-ordinaire, Dre-Day and continued to perform where ever he went while consistently pulling crowds intrigued to listen. He went on to work with a few known names and labels in the business and patiently awaiting the right opportunity to have his music reach the people of the dancehall in Jamaica and throughout the diaspora. This daunting task was managed seemingly effortlessly by Kalano as he maintained his cool lyrical swag nurtured from his rapping days fused with the edgy, raw sting that is dancehall music. His unorthodox style of expressing dancehall culture caught the eyes ears and minds of many with songs such as “Zion Train” & “Angels” which were produced by ‘Columbian’. Kalano's music exemplifies the struggles and triumphs of the Jamaican man. His music seeks to renew the vision and focus for today’s youth who have lost hope and direction, it reaches out to those who are seeking new avenues of motivation & upliftment. Currently Kalano' has renewed his focus and is now set on establishing himself as a household name by not only strengthening his current fan base but also expanding it towards a wider audience.
