Philadelphia is known for its various musical talents
(Will Smith, Beanie Sigel, The Roots) but it is also said "if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere". Coming from a West Philadelphia neighborhood that lacks opportunity, there is Bones, who has started his own independent entertainment company, Hustler Records. He began Hustler Records in 2003 as just a label that specialized in hip hop music and it has now expanded into an entertainment group that specializes in Hip Hop, R&B, and Pop music, event planning, promotions and is even involved in neighborhood charity. Bones says, "everybody raps, but not everybody makes music and not everybody is an entertainer". With a number of releases within the past years, including the popular Gentrification mixtape which is centered on a soul sampled feel, as well as his new project Fashion and Profits. Bones has also developed the mentality of a true showman through his performances and numerous music videos. He has been featured on numerous occasions on HipHopSince1987, AllHipHop, Hot1079philly.com, WorldStarHipHop.com and more. Through this he a gained a buzz in various states on the east coast, performing at venues such as Philadelphia’s TLA and opened for the likes of Fabolous, Teyana Taylor, DMX with more to come.
