MEET THE CREW!
Chubb Rock – @chubblive
When you think of hip-hop artists from the ‘90s, whose music spontaneously moves the crowd to the dance floor, Chubb Rock is one of a few that immediately come to mind. “1990 Chubb Rock jumps up on the scene with a lean and a pocket full of green…” – His 1990 hit “Treat ‘Em Right” still elicits a great response from those longing for the clean party anthems of their time. The song selling more than 2 million records and earning 2 Grammy Nominations. Born Richard Simpson, on May 28, 1968, bounced onto the rap scene in 1986 Since that time Chubb has gone on to create other chart topping hits including “Caught Up”, “Just the Two of Us” and “Ya Bad Chubbs”. This lyrical wizard is credited with launching the careers of the Trackmasterz: Poke and Red Hot Lover. Chubb Rock, known for his 6’4’ 300+ pound frame will assuredly seduce the ladies with his new svelte 100 pound lighter physique and alluring lyrics. Though his weight may be lighter his lyrics and beats still hit hard. While over the years Chubb Rock has matured so has his music. Staying true to his fan base that has loved him for years his new grown up music and lyrics are definitely targeted towards the Grown and Sexy. Chubb has recorded with some of the best ie: Quincy Jones, Al B Sure, Eric Robeson, Tevin Campbell just to name a few.

Carol Blackmon – @carolblackmon
This was probably Carol’s first love; dancing and performing. Her involvement in the arts also ignited her interest in local theatre, which resulted in two leading roles in stage productions. She garnered rave reviews from critics and audiences and even now vows to finish what she started by returning to acting in the near future. In the meantime, her sincere love for the communications business continued to flourish. She was offered a morning drive position at a jazz station in Gainesville, Fl. She did not hesitate to seize the moment and with great excitement and eagerness to grow, she relocated to Florida. After six months, she had her designs on Atlanta and had it in full view. Until recently, she was the midday host of the Majic Midday Café on Majic 107.5/97.5. For nearly seven years she took great pride in inspiring, educating, entertaining and informing her audience daily. She is a staunch believer of supporting the community where she works and lives. Her weekly radio show featured segments where she would help feed those that were less fortunate, she would also share employment opportunities, and weekly wellness information. Her Mammogram Mondays encouraged listeners to get annual mammograms and she also started Mammograms for Moms, which added an extra push for mammograms during the month of May to honor moms. Carol’s passion about these programs really showed because she sincerely believes, “Service is truly Success”. Her biggest accomplishment to date, has been being a mom to her son who is in college studying to become an animator. His hard work and his genuinely good heart and caring for people always makes her proud.
