DScales may be from a small town but his talent is big. He is a rare breed, something like a phenomenon, and to even call him multi-talented would be an understatement. He is a rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, and a self taught musician.

On The Edge Presents: CHURCH CHIZZLE


Church Chizzle is a complete MC who possesses all the credentials that hip-hop legends are made of; Lyricism, Diversity, Great Flow, Raw Freestyle Skills, Creativity, Street Cred, & SWAG. Growing up in a Cooperative housing unit in Toronto, Church was known for his freestyle/battling abilities. Although he knew that one day he’d expose his creative song writing ability to the world by recording tracks he got caught up in the hustle to make ends meet and rap became a hobby, not a priority. In late 2008, the same hustle led to a tragic incident that left him fighting for his life with little signs of survival. To the surprise of even his doctors Church made a rapid recovery breathing new life into his childhood nickname, which became his rapper alias. Instilled with a sense of purpose Church returned to the scene ready to make a change. Jumping head first into music he was reached out to by a childhood friend who shared the same musical interests and a knack for business.
Almost 2 years later Church has released a debut mixtape titled ‘The Go To Church Mixtape’ and a music video for the single off the mixtape called ‘I’m Comin’. The video received twenty-thousand views on YouTube in the first month, which has helped Church to build a fan base that extends beyond Canada. He has also performed at over twenty different events some of which include, Urban Noise, North by North East (NxNE), D12 Superbowl, 106 & York, and Manifesto, as well as various underground showcases around the city. Much Music’s show, RapCity was in for a surprise when the artist by the name of Church Chizzle got on the “#FREESTYLE” segment and went on a winning streak. He reigned as champion for five weeks and eventually was retired as champ. Still hungry, Church continues to do as many showcases as possible with a love that is evident when watching him perform. The support has been incredible and has only increased with Church’s participation in The Remix Project’s recording arts program. There is no doubt that this is what Church was built for and there’s no looking back.

On The Edge Presents: The Antagonist


The Opposition Has Arrived!

The Antagonist were formed originally at Woodrow Wilson High School in Long Beach CA. While at the time the group consisted of as many as 10 members at one time, throughout the years the group has been condensed to the members that currently exist, and who have existed from the beginning.Arsin, Tony Rome, Hennessee, and Ace make up the four members of the Antagonist. Hip-Hop was is and has always and will always be a major part of the faction. The Antagonist explain that being an Antagonist is not just a crew, rap group, or band, but a way of life, as "being the opposition" to what mainstream society considers "popular" and "trendy", but not always the enemy.The Antagonist maintain that their style of rap is a combination of westcoast gangsta music and heavy underground, to which they called "Westcoast Grimey" music. Hip Hop has varied into many sub categories due to its increasing worldwide popularity. The Antagonist feel that their music cannot be totally placed or completely summarized into any categories, as they can quickly display a versatile style of rapping over any instrumental presented to them.At one point in between the group's startup and now, they almost did not pursue hip hop. Along with putting out various EPs and not doing the promotional or marketing end of getting the music heard, various situations including family issues and even inner group quarrels stopped the group from considering making new music........for a while. Having a serious passion for hip hop, they eventually came back together and are now pursuing hip hop with more focus and energy than they ever did before. Not to be cliche' but simply "It's now or never."The Antagonist are looking to come up in the rap game as the new blood from the Long Beach, and even California. It seems as though the westcoast is on the rise again with the coming of some very lyrical yet dope emcees, and The Antagonist hope to be recognized amongst the greats in the West, and eventually, amongst the greats in Hip Hop itself.Its The Antagonist! The Opposition has arrived!

On The Edge Presents: Belvy Castro

Born in NEW London CT. Tierece Barnes (AKA) Belvy Castro first got his taste of hip-hop/rap at the age of twelve. He was always into music such as R&B, the blues and jazz. As a child he grew up in church singing in the choir. Tierece had a real thing for being in the spotlight. Why wouldn’t he as his late grandfather, Robert Arnell Peck, was said to have to played trumpet with the late, great Mile Davis. Growing up was tough for him as his father was in the Navy and that meant moving to new places and never settling in. He could never make friends because he was always being relocated to place like South Carolina, Maryland and Florida, just to name a few. At the age of seven his mother and father filed for divorce which left him to be the man of the house. His mother, Senceria Ward, who raised him and his younger sister as a single mother did the best she could to provide for them. At age fourteen he moved back to hometown and birthplace of New London, CT that was where he really started to pursues Rap. He would enter talent shows and battle in Cyphers around the neighborhood after realizing that he had a talent for music and writing verses and song. Not knowing how to put songs together with verse and hooks, he was helped by a high school friend who was heavily into the Rap business. He also had a talent for making/producing beats from then on Belvy began making tracks. Because of this they could go into the studio at different times and still have verses with similar storylines and meanings, thus becoming the group Midnight Sunz. The music that they create comes from their experiences and decisions, both good and bad, that they’ve encountered or chosen, with the outcomes not all being good ones. “Society made me who I am, you can’t blame me for that” says Belvy Castro. All he could and can do is to learn from his mistakes and try to make his life better for his daughters and a son, and the rest of his families, and believe that nothing will stop him from pursuing a career in the music industry. Whether he gets signed or does it independently, his time is now.

I’ve been with 50mics for about three and half years now, I love and enjoy doing it every minute of it. They have been a real influential part of my career as far as getting me the exposure I need as well as promotion. 50mics has the streets buzzing about Belvy Castro; working with 50mics has been an honor and a blessing. Along the way, I have also met some acquiesce that had the same passionate about their music like I am. Shout out goes to Draztic Measure, Rudy Moose, Rowland Burnz, The Whole Burnin Truth Families just to name a few. Also I have worked with a multi-platinum producer of 50 cent (BUDA DA FUTURE). I was feature in two magazines one is name The Source and the other is Street Confinement magazine. I have been doing show all over East Coast like: New York, Ohio, Rhoda Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and part of Connecticut (Ansonia, Waterbury, Stamford, Hartford, New London, Norwich, just name a few).
I’ve been in the music business now for about 10 years now, nothing but grinding and paying my dues. And also I must say, it looking better than ever for me now, it takes a lot of Dedication and Sacrifices to get where I want be in this music industry. There’s so much untapped potential in Connecticut it’s insane. Currently, I’m working on my album titled GEMIINII (Gemini) which will be out sometime in the spring or before summer. And also I have a mix tapes in the work, which probably will be sometime in the summer or before fall with the titled INNER DEMONS MIXTAPE. All I have left to say is keep your eyes and ears open on the streets, because I’m coming.

On The Edge Presents: Major Soprano




January 12, 1986 new and upcoming rap artist Jeffery (Blake) Chandler aka “MAJOR SOPRANO” was born. He resides in Houston, Texas where his love for music grew from a young age. MAJOR SOPRANO is from what we call in the "South" the "Ghetto" Trinity Garden but grew up in a neighborhood named Parkway Forest also know by its school name C.E. King. He graduated from North Shore Senior High in 2004 but soon after that got caught up in the streets as a full time job! He always hustled ever since the age of 13 but he really indulged in "Major" moves once he got out of school which is how he got his original name "B-Major". Rapping started off as a simple way to just have fun; free styling amongst his peers of Smash Click over karaoke back in the year of 2000. This grew into a hobby that he would do in his spare time, writing to the instrumentals of well known artist just to compare himself. In the year of 2008 he changed his alias to what he is now known as, MAJOR SOPRANO; because he loved music with a passion. In 2009 Major Soprano was incarcerated for manufacturing with intent to deliver for a year and a half. While imprisoned he really decided he would be serious about rapping and push himself to being his best at it. For MAJOR SOPRANO this was a minor setback for a “MAJOR” come back! He is now working on finishing his first mixtape while his fan base grows larger each day. He is the owner of his own record label, Black Collar Gentlemen as of now he is the only known artist. Being from Houston Texas, MAJOR SOPRANO may already be put at a disadvantage due to the stereotype of the style and creativity of local Houston Rappers. But he feels that he can change that image for the better, with his different style of rap using complex metaphors and similes throughout his songs.

In 2008 Yung Don (C.E.O) of Drought Squad stated “See I grew up with Miiz Gudda and I didn’t know that she was so talented”. Yung Don heard many of Miiz Gudda’s freestyles and then begins contacting her every day. Miiz Gudda took advantage of him contacting her and begins to go to the studio every hour. Yung Don and Miiz Gudda completed many collabs, making studio time no problem. In 2009, Miiz Gudda released her first mixtape “The Queen of Swag” she noticed that she could work harder, meaning she needed more songs and better quality.

He was determined to help Miiz Gudda. He mentioned an upcoming talent show hosted by Sean Rumby (Memphis promoter) on April 10, 2010. Miiz Gudda didn’t hesitate to perform there.

(Live Edition), will be hosted by DJ Smalls and will be released soon after.
