Volume 1 featured Kingpin Skinny Pimp, Alan Z, Ms Green, and Slim Dub (listen), landed on, The Source, On the Rise Magazine, Hip Hop Since 1987, Mad Fresh Daily and Holiday Season Live, and spawned a music video for the single “Buried Treasure” (watch). As a result of a series of grassroots performance and fan engagement campaigns through the Southeast, Skinny-C caught the attention of Kevin Nottingham & Hipnott Records with the EP 110 (listen) and has sold more than 10,000 combined digital and hard copies of his 2010 release Mixtape Muzik Vol. 1: INTREPID and Mixtape Muzik Vol. 2: RHAPSODY. Since then, Skinny-C has performed at the 11th annual June-teenth Festival and the 5th Annual Texas Summer Music Conference. “‘MC’ defines an emcee by using only words that begin with ‘M’ and ‘C’ sequentially within the verses,” Skinny says. “This one of the most creative concepts that I have ever come up with and surprisingly one of the easiest to write.”

Check out Xavien(stage name: Xay) half of a hip hop/pop group called “XayZay ThaOverachievers” with his brother Xamon(stage name: Zay) as the other half. We currently reside in Memphis, TN but we travel back & forth from here to Atlanta to work on our music & promotions. They  feel as if they really have a great chance at becoming a real super group. Not just in the U.S. We are talking about REAL INTERNATIONAL TEEN SENSATIONS. They have already began to create a decent sized fan base & with the right promotions we feel like it could grow to be so much more. Their pen game is almost untouchable. They’ve been compared to the group OutKast by quit a few people in the industry, but  are so much more than that. They are a very diverse group & they make music for everyone;Moreover, They make music for girls, love songs, pop music, dance music, music about our struggles & hardtimes. THEY CAN DO IT ALL!!! So if you could please check out their newest single called “Party All Night(P.A.N.)” it would be very much appreciated. It had been mixed & mastered so the quality is very much up to part.


MEDIA ALERT: Video Premier Party for TNT FAMILLES Single “Mental” Friday December 13th at the BLU Cantina on Peters Street



Atlanta, GA (December 8, 2013) — Atlanta, GA. After a year of heavy promoting and campaigning, the Hip-Hop Duo, TNT FAMILLE will be celebrating the premiere of the new video for their single “Mental”. TNT FAMILLE in conjunction with U3 Entertainment will host the event at the BLU Cantina on Peters Street  in Atlanta, G.A. on December 13, 2013. You are invited to come out for a night of networking and conversation while enjoying $4 Cuervo Tequila shots. Doors will open at 6p.m., early arrival strongly suggested.

The groups single, “Mental”, was released as a solo project by Dynamite from the groups 1st EP, “The Foundation: Evolve” set to be released in early 2014. Despite the racy content and explicit lyrics, the track sets the tone for the groups mastery of wordplay and analogies. Under the direction of Antwanette McLaughlin, Creative Director of The Spice Group the artist vision was able to be cultivated into a production that gives life to the lyrics. The idea was to give the audience the artist depiction of mind sex and mental stimulation. Hence the title “MENTAL”


TNT FAMILLE is a Hip Hop duo formed by two brothers, Eugene Timmons Jr. A.K.A. Dynamite and Devonne Timmons A.K.A. Bones. Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, the pair got their first taste of music at an early age.  The two were members of the school band, and also played instruments for their church as well as performed. During this time they had developed more than a love for music but a passion. In their quest for developing their abilities as musicians, they went from student musical directors and drum majors at Banneker High School, to attending HBCU‘s. Now the pair is drumming to a different tune, from 808’s to singing melodies. With a wide and vivid musical background, TNT FAMILLE learned and perfected the art of musical creation. Their mastery of different instruments and their collaborative creativity when it comes to the elements of this art form, set them apart from many up and coming Hip Hop acts today. Currently the brothers are working on promoting their collaborative projects as well as solo projects that highlight their individual talents. With the release of singles from “The Foundation” project, TNT FAMILLEgives their fans a taste of what’s to come.

Watch: Jermside & Danny Diggs- Victory Is Mine @jermiside @dannydiggs @atlgravity #victoryismine



Jermiside & Danny Diggs release official visuals for the latest single off their new album Queit As Kept. Directed by Lessondary member and former Tanya Morgan emceeIlyas Nashid“Victory Is Mine” finds Jermiside spittin bars through the King Historic District of Atlanta.  The single is current being added to rotation on college radio. Call your local station and request to hear it!

Quiet As Kept is available now on iTunesGoogle PlayBandcamp and all other digital outlets. Compact Discs can be purchased at UGHH.


After receiving many accolades for their 2010 debut album, Middle ClassicJermiside & Danny Diggs are back by popular demand with Quiet As Kept. Keeping with the same formula as their first album together, Quiet As Kept includes 10 original tracks featuring Jermiside’s honest lyricism and dedicated flow over smooth intricate production by Danny Diggs. Bonus remixes by The Expert & Illustrate provide the finishing touch to this cohesive album, which is an easy listen from front to back.

In late 2007 Irish producer Danny Diggs would reach out to collaborate with Atlanta based, Cincinnati-bred emcee Jermiside on a song for what was supposed to be a B-side for a vinyl release. While the 12 inch never materialized, the two would continue to work on what gradually snowballed into 2010’s full length LP, Middle Classic.

Jermiside began carving out a niche for himself in 2003 with the the self-produced and self released 7 inch vinyl record called NP45 Vol. 1 and later that year, The Biology Of Kingship which received favorable reviews both locally, nationally and also sparked the interest of various overseas entities. During this period, he would link with other like-minded Cincinnati natives Ilyas, Donwill (of Tanya Morgan fame) and Brickbeats, with whom he would later form the duo The Red Giants with The Red Giants LP (2006) and Chain Reaction EP (2009). As a part of the Lessondary Crew, which consists of Che Grand, Tanya Morgan, Elucid, Spec Boogie, A Brother Named George and others, Jermiside has made a name for himself with his stellar guest appearances. He has appeared on tracks alongside artists such as Tanya Morgan, Ill Poetic, Soulstice, Theory Hazit, Reef the Lost Cause and a number of other underground artists.

Danny Diggs’ production is very reminiscent of the Golden Era of hip-hop and, unsurprisingly, his music has caught the attention of such well respected artists as Killah Priest, Akrobatic, Shad, Has-Lo and many up an coming talents from around the globe. In 2009 he released Introducing Danny Diggs which featured a well received single “The Calling” featuring Shad K, Jermiside & Destruments.

Check Them Out: JEDii-Your Air @jedii @atlgravity


pic_1372479713_yourair_cvrBorn and raised in Atlanta Ga, Jeffery Bowden or “Jedii” as he is known by his music industry peers has made his mark in the Atlanta music scene and the recording industry. Raised in church by his devout minister father and mother, geared Jeff B for a life in music arts. Through out grade school and high school he laid his musical foundation by being a member of both choral programs and playinginstruments for band programs to further his musical studies. He marched drum line for the Riverwood Raiders for two consecutive years and showed great aptitude before returning to his home school Benjamin E. Banneker to finish out his high school career. While at Banneker Jeff concentrated more on choral performance and caught the attention of the musical department heads, being asked to lead the choir solo for performances. He graduated Banneker with a high school diploma.

After high school Jeff caught the attention of a local Atlanta music producer Carl Breeding. The two formed a friendship and partnership that would lead to various opportunities. Breeding was working under music legend Daryll Simmons of Laface Records and brought a young Jeff in as a staff writer. Simmons had released a group from his label then called “The Dolls” (which later changed their name to Destiny’s Child) but used the services of his staff to secure their record deal. Jeff was one of the writers that landed a song called “Show Me The Way” on what would be Destiny’s Child’s first album release of many. He worked personally with the group writing and vocal producing. Since the group did not work out for Simmons, he had an opening for a group which turned out to be the birth of Co-eD a two guy two girl group vocal group, brainchild of Breeding and Bowden.

What would now be called Co-eD started a musical journey that lead to many accomplishments. On e being securing a record deal from Universal Records. Hence its creation, the group took many forms until forming its founding members in 1998. Jeff C, Jeff B, Nikki and Bianca. The group was offered deals and was even signed to production companies Noontime and Patchwerk before finally signing to an independent company Rubicon. During the groups development (98-99) Jeff B and Jeff C wrote a song which would lead them to the brink of success called “Roll Wit Me”. This song would go on the be to this day one of the most popular songs in a region by an independent vocal group. The remix to “Roll Wit Me” is responsible for the career launch for very well know rapper T.I.. Co-eD later signed the deal with Universal Records and released debut album “Utopia” which was not heavily promoted by the record company. The group went on to do some touring overseas before dispersing in 2002.

After Co-ed, Jeff B started using the knowledge he gathered on his journe y to write, produce, arrange and counsel for many up and coming artist as well as veterans in the industry. He started writing with famed Outkast producer Mr. Dj in 2006 and since the two have worked on many projects together ranging from pop to gospel to electronic to rap and even country. Jeff has been a part of EMI music one of the largest publishing companies in the world since 2000 as writer and producer. Jeff is currently in the studio with a host of artist.
