--- The LACS ---
"People see stuff that is already there and ask why I dream stuff that never was and ask why not. This saying describes the LACS, they saw what was already there, had big dreams to be there, and asked the music industry why not? Their hick hop and southern rock sound is stronger than the moonshine they drink. The LACS which is the famous short abbreviation of the Loud Ass Crackers are from the sandy dirt roads of Baxley, Georgia. A South Georgia town more famous for its sawmills and turpentine stills than for having a successful southern rap group. The LACS consist of hip hop artist Clay Uncle Snap Sharpe and lead vocalist / guitarist Brian Rooster King. With a blue collar background they have worked shutdowns with the union and framed many a house to earn enough money keep their music dreams alive. The LACS latest album is still in the works but already has created a buzz with its contributions from Average Joe recording artist Colt Ford on the song Shindig and allowing the LACS the privilege of performing some of his tour dates.

Rehab and more. Dustins style and flow is unmatched. His southern tone comes backed up with some real knowledge of hip hop and places himself in the ranks with the best Emcees to have graced the microphone.Wesley Breit, native of Tampa, FL, was born to a long line of musicians. His grandfather was a country singer, songwriter, and a world class fiddle player. His father, a southern rock guitarist and his mother a country singer have all lead to his Country / Hip Hop style. His productions have been featured on many major prime time television shows including; Keeping up with The Kardashians, The Real World, Total Divas, and many more.

Having a southern influenced sound combined with an unforgiving skill with the pen, Ryan has made a name for himself throughout the years that remains unstoppable.Ryan and Wes have collaborated for many years on numerous projects. Wes introduced Dustin and Ryan, and from there, the three have been an uncontested music making machine cranking out song after song in what seems like a truly effortless manor. All fine tuned with a unique sound that cant be placed into any one specific genre. So the three decided the only thing left to do would be to assume one single identity and never look backand here we have the groupHard Target!
--- Crucifix ---
Born in Atlanta Georgia, raised in Central and East Africa, Crucifix spent much of his early childhood bouncing from continent to continent, soaking in a wide influence of music, language and culture. By the age of 18, he was native to fifteen different countries, fluent in English, French, and Swahili, and dabbling in German and Finnish. But it was his unveiling passion for music that would soon take center stage in his life. At the age of 8, he had begun to make a name freestyle battling on the street corners of Decatur Georgia, a dance that soon became a full blown love affair with hip-hop. At the age of twelve he moved to Africa where he began teaching himself the piano, writing and producing his own music. And quickly discovered the power of pouring out his heart into song.
Within a year, he found himself recording his first album, from the comfort of his bedroom, making his own tapes with little more than a tape recorder and a keyboard. Designing the covers by hand and selling them at school and on the dusty streets of Rwanda. But his rendez vous with local success would be short lived. In April of 1994, Rwanda would break out into one of the worst genocides in modern history, leaving over a million dead in its wake. Crucifix and his family found themselves on the front lines a broken road of burning cars and mangled corpses, the only path between them and safety. With nothing but a Bible in their hands and a prayer in their hearts, the family pushed towards the border, escaping with their lives under a hail of gunfire as they slipped through the roadblocks of machete wielding mobs, out of Rwanda and into the neighboring country of Burundi.
The memories of Rwanda made a lasting imprint on the life and music of Crucifix from that point. It soon became the canvas for his pain, medicine for his heart. In 2005 he released his controversial double disc debut, My Lifes Prayer under the alias BabyBlue, and year later, in 2006, he was hired on as co-producer, editor and musical mind behind the Atlanta underground film, Crackheads Gone Wild. In 2009 his life story was published in the book Your Own Jesus by Mark Hall, of the multi-platinum, Grammy, Dove and American Music Award winning group, Casting Crowns. In 2010, the Blue Crucifix story went international, as Your Own Jesus was translated into its second language for release in Europe.
In July 2010, he released his follow up sophomore album, Cruce Signati, as well as teaming up with Southern HipHop legend Sean Paul of Youngbloodz forming the group Slumdogz. In 2011 his music appeared in VH1's "The T.O. Show" and wound down the year by venturing into the Dead Zone of Chernobyl to film his newest music video and upcoming documentary "Road To Chernobyl". His third album "Acid Reign", produced by Phivestarr Production is set to drop in mid 2013 and promises to be his best work to date, featuring Bubba Sparxxx, Nappy Roots, Sean Paul of Youngloodz and Big Rube of Dungeon Family.
