Rick Ross: Rick Ross has reigned supreme on the Miami rap scene and the national music charts since releasing his #1 debut album in 2006. Since then, the "Teflon Don" has recorded three more hit albums and is working on his fifth. Rick Ross tour dates are scheduled periodically throughout 2011.

Born William Leonard Roberts II in Mississippi, he moved to Miami at a young age and attended Albany State University on a football scholarship before focusing his energies on his rhyming skills. Rick Ross made a name for himself by touring and performing alongside his mentor, Trick Daddy, in the early 2000s. He was signed to Trick Daddy's label, Slip-n-Slide, and released his debut album, Port of Miami, in 2006. The album broke records when it debuted at #1. Rolling Stone magazine hailed the debut disc as the rap album of the summer. The album featured two hit singles, the Platinum certified "Hustlin", and the top ten rap track "Push It". The album was certified Gold and Ross became an overnight rap sensation. Rick Ross tour dates were the hottest ticket of Summer, 2011 and he quickly went back into the studio to record the follow-up.

Ross released his sophomore set, Trilla, to similar fanfare in 2008. The album also debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and was certified Gold. It featured the Platinum single, "The Boss", and earned the rapper the #4 position on MTV's list of the "Hottest MCs in the Game". Rick Ross tour dates were scheduled across the country to promote the disc and he wrote rhymes for his third album Deeper Than Rap. Ross also created his own imprint, Maybach Music Group, which is distributed through Warner Bros. Records. The label had a #1 album on their hands when Ross released Deeper Than Rap in 2009. Ross was quick to follow-up in 2010 with Teflon Don. This album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, his first album not to debut at #1. For the disc, Ross earned a nomination at The Source Awards for "Man of the Year", and he garnered a nomination at the BET Awards 2011 for "Best Male Hip Hop Artist".

Rick Ross is the latest mogul to emerge in the Hip-Hop world, with a record label, #1 albums, and Platinum plaques to his credit. In addition, he is recording a collabo album with Diddy entitled Bugatti Boy and working on his sixth album, God Forgives, I Don't, which are both scheduled for release in 2011. Rick Ross tour dates and performances have been scheduled periodically throughout 2011. Most notably, Rick Ross scheduled a performance at the BET Awards, in June, 2011. For those of you not able to cop tickets to the BET Awards, Rick Ross tour dates are also scheduled at local venues in your area.

Lil Jon: After collaborating on hits with Usher, Ice Cube, Ying Yang Twins and a host of others on the release of his second certified double-platinum album, Crunk Juice, Lil Jon is preparing to commence work on his fourth full-length album CRUNK ROCK. The new album, which is scheduled for release later this year, is Lil Jon’s first venture as a solo artist on TVT. The first single, "Snap Yo Fingers" features E-40 and Sean Paul (Youngbloodz).

Lil Jon will also be in the studio finishing work on the long-awaited debut albums from BME/TVT Records female rap slayer Chyna Whyte and silky songstress Oobie later this year as well.

More on Lil Jon: As a producer, Lil Jon has become one of the most in-demand beatsmiths in music. He has crafted his signature revolutionary sound from chants and catchy choruses. His consistent hitmaking has earned him legions of fans from Los Angeles to the Midwest to his native region, the South. This is evident as Lil Jon won BMI’s 2005 Songwriter of the Year. He also scored eight Billboard Awards (Rap Song of the Year for “Lovers and Friends”, Hot 100 Single of the Year for “Yeah”, Hot 100 Airplay Single of the Year for “Yeah”, Hot 100 Producer of the Year for “Yeah”, Mainstream Top 40 Single of the Year for “Yeah”, R&B/Hip-Hop Group of the Year 2003, Independent Album of the Year for Kings of Crunk and Independent Artists of the Year 2003), a Grammy (Best Rap/Song Collaboration for “Yeah), a Radio Music Award (Song of the Year for Hip-Hop/Rhythmic Radio for “Yeah”), a BET Award (Viewer’s Choice for “Yeah”), two MTV Video Music Awards (Best Dance Video and Best Male Video for “Yeah”) and an American Music Award (Best Rap/Hip-hop Band, Duo or Group 2003).

DJ IRIE: Dominating any venue and infusing every party with his seemingly infinite energy, DJ Irie has captivated the entire industry. Nominated for a 2007 BET Award and voted 2005’s Best Club DJ by the Miami New Times, Irie's passion, enthusiasm and particularly charming personality sets him apart. Although Miami is his stomping ground, on the national level DJ Irie is impossible to miss. As official DJ to Jamie Foxx and the 2006 NBA World Champion Miami HEAT, and performances at MTV’s Total Request Live, the Nickelodeon Teen Choice Awards and the Halftime show at the Orange Bowl for three consecutive years, DJ Irie knows no boundaries.

The youngest of three boys, DJ Irie was born in St. Croix and raised in Miami, FL. Schooled in Jamaica, at a private boarding school, he was introduced to his first and only true love, music. With a home made beat machine, constructed from a walkman and speakers, combined with Grammy winning and multi-platinum reggae phenomenon-roommate Sean Paul’s Casio, DJ Irie was born. During the daytime hours, as DJ of the most listened to mix-show on Miami’s WEDR 99Jamz, Irie spins his favorite records three days a week, (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) on The Drive at 5. He also holds the 1 weekend slot on Saturday nights from 10pm-Midnight with the Saturday Night Thunderstorm, rocking the weekend airwaves.

For DJ Irie, music and sports also seem to go hand in hand. As the official DJ of the 2006 NBA World Champions Miami HEAT, Irie is known in the American Airlines Arena by fans and players alike, for his immeasurable enthusiasm and ability to play the beats that get fans out of their seats. His energy is contagious, and for the eighth season in a row, Irie is steadily playing his position keeping the HEAT on fire.

But he doesn’t stop there. Irie is a mainstay in the Bahamas where he travels close to 15 times per year to spin at the extensive clubs, beach and holiday parties. 2007’s bill included the star studded grand opening of The Cove, Aura Nightclub Atlantis Resort, Superbowl, MTV VMA’s and the Toronto Film Festival. And you can find DJ Irie at other major events such as The Heineken House Party in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Hawaii. His travels also take him frequently to Europe to headline at clubs in Germany, Switzerland and Austria among other countries, where his name and talent are well known and highly anticipated.

Branching out in the music industry also seemed like a natural progression for DJ Irie, and his consulting firm, Artist Related, has already made a name for itself with a roster of well known DJ’s such as: DJ Erok, DJ Knowledge and DJ Ross 1 of NY. Artist Related has been named the official entertainment company for the ever-exclusive Casa Casuarina (Versace Mansion) and the Florida Marlins.

DJ Irie is also a philanthropic entrepreneur who uses his skills to benefit others. Irie has created the annual IRIE WEEKEND, which benefits the Miami HEAT Charitable Fund. Irie also makes himself available to other charitable groups he admires such as: The Special Olympics, Udonis Haslem Foundation, Overtown Youth Center, Alonzo Mourning Charities, Odessa Chambers Foundation, Ronnie Brown Foundation, The United Way, Jason Taylor Foundation and numerous groups benefiting Hurricane Katrina victims.

DJ Irie has been featured in USA Today, Us Weekly, Playboy Magazine, ESPN the Magazine, Ocean Drive and teamed up with adidas to launch the DJ Irie EQT B-Ball shoe.
