HOOVER - Rapper
Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, Hoover represents the QC to the fullest. His rap style is diverse and can’t be put in a box whether he is freestylin on a hot track, rapping his own lyrics or battling another mc. Hoover is always on point and consistently bringing his game to a another level.
When asked what is his purpose in the rap game he simply replies, "to teach people his truth about life, survival, and to be heard. For Hoover, life ain’t been no crystal stair; he lived with his family in a tractor trailer when he was younger and he never got his diploma from high school. He was kicked out for possession of marijuana and he never went back because he knew that he was going to make it in ths rap game and he felt a diploma wasn’t necessary to reach his goal.
On top of dropping out of school, Hoover started running with gangs. At first he felt obligated and was involved with criminal activity, but now he is not an "active" member, but still continues to chill with his "folk."
A lot of things in Hoovers life has changed, including his name. Growing up, people called him Romeo, because all the ladies loved him. He shortened it to Rome and used it as his rap name, but there was other cats in the game with similar names so he decided to be known by his last name, Hoover.
Inspired by rappers like Tupac Shakur, Hoover wants to bring joy, pain, and hope to peoples lives. At 18, Hoover has completed two c.d.’s and has been heard from Charlotte to ATL. And now that he is affiliated with YOWD Group Inc., the only way to go is up.

YOUNG VEDO - RAPPER
When you hear the name Vedo, know that he’s not your average rapper. He is a talented 19 year old money making machine. Whether it’s hustling at his day job at Wal-Mart or taking classes at Central Piedmont Community College, he has a plan a, b, and c if rapping doesn’t justify his end. Born in Charlotte, North Carolina as Brandon Lee Russell III, Vedo raps mostly about southern life, southern depression, and the southern drought. You gotta love it!
If it don’t pertain to him, he don’t rap about it. So you won’t hear about 24 inch chrome rims, icy chains, or candy painted hoopties; at least not yet. Vedo’s style comes from the real-life situations he has dealt with. No, he hasn’t been shot multiple times like the late Tupac Shakur and he hasn’t got a rap sheet as long as T.I., but he says "that’s not what makes you real." "A real nigga don’t have charges and hasn’t been locked up, that means you were smooth and didn’t get caught doing dirt." With his rap skills, Vedo plans to put Charlotte on the map. This won’t be an easy task seeing that Charlotte seems to have a lack of support for some of their own. That just means that him and the rest of the Y.O.W.D. Group will have to bring it and bring it hard.
For someone who has been rapping for less than 5 years, he already has one formula down on how to write his lyrics. When he gets pissed off, he uses a pen to express himself. Although he free styles, he prefers to put his mind on paper and next thing you know, he has a complete song. His music is something you can feel and relate to, but don’t take his word for it. Put his c.d. in and just bump his shit. When you’re an artist who is inspired by other artist like Kurt Cobain, a little Linkin Park, Pastor Troy, and Project Pat, you can’t help but to be nice.

Kenny Hanson - Rapper
If you take a teenage rapper and a twenty something year old rapper, who would you think had more life "experience" to speak on? Just listen to Kenny Hanson’s music and you’ll see. Kenny Hans, for short, has been rapping for 10 plus years and he can speak on various topics. Everything to females, clubs, and just life period. Learning the rap game by a fellow friend he calls Mr. T, gave him a mentor and someone who could help perfect his skills as an artists. "Mr. T knew how to put his lines together and I would just listen to how he did it," says Kenny.
Formally a DJ, Kenny was born and raised in Staten Island, NY and this is where his story begins. He has a melodic flow and what he talks about, people can relate to. Being a writer, a true writer, gives you a leg up on the competition, especially if you’re sick with the way you put your words together. And trust, Kenny Hans is "sick" when it comes to his skills with the pen. He likes to write his lyrics down because it allows his collective thoughts to come to one point.
And speaking of collective, Kenny Hans is also part of a group with his friend Poke called "Dubo Barro." Now residing in Gastonia, North Carolina, a.k.a "the gas house," Kenny is still creating that "real-life music." People are overlooked in this music industry because they may be older, but for the people who doubt him because he is a "mature" rapper Kenny says, "music is music, so whoever it appeals to, let them be the judge."
