Music is our Universal Language and everyone in this world deserves the opportunity to be exposed to its powerful influence. We have worked extremely hard to create a program that stimulates and encourage youth to become successful and thriving adults. With this program, we aim to heighten the appreciation of music and encourage the diversity of musical expression through programs and activities to enhance the cultural life of colleges and its surrounding community. We hope that we will be able to impact the lives of many through our foundation, through our members, and most importantly, through music.

THE MISSION Our mission is to encourage youth to become successful and thriving adults, enhance their intellectual and interpersonal abilities through educational and interactive programs, and to be inspired by music!

Drake: Live in Concert May 1, 2009

Flyer designed by Jacob Smith

On May 1, 2009, Hu$$le Hard Empire brought up-and-coming rising international star, Drake, to Georgia Southern University. The event proved to be an immense success, with first-row tickets selling out in less than five minutes. As event coordinator, I managed a team of nearly 30 individuals, contacted and booked all participating artists (3), colaborated with Savannah’s Cumulus Broadcasting, “E-93 Jamz” for promotional ticket sales, and was responsible for artists’ riders, as well as supervised their “Meet & Greet”. With my leadership, the event’s revenue exceeded the budget by nearly 50%.

MUSIC SPOTLIGHT: December 9, 2009 Issue

Meet King Shump It was 7:02 p.m. when I walked into Georgia Southern University’s new Foy Building. There sits an aspiring and dedicated artist with a white and blue hoodie jacket, jeans, and some Nike kicks. He is hard at work recording an acoustic version of one his songs, “I Like That”, while simultaneously doing his homework. His name is King Shump, a stage name derived from his government name in which he preferred was not printed. He began rapping at the age of 10 with one of those now-antique cassette recorders. Meeting aspiring artists in high school, he formed a rap group entitled, Lawless, where he started recording his first tracks. He now records as a solo artist. Influenced by 2Pac, he makes music that entertains and relates to individuals with similar backgrounds. He grew up in the heart of Ohio before moving to the Eastside of Atlanta. His music is enriched in a Southern sound that infuses Rhythm & Blues elements that he creates with a vocal-harmonizing effect through sleek and heavy-based production. He has performed mostly in local venues in Statesboro, but he was recently invited to Howard University to perform at their annual Homecoming YardFest concert. “It was a great way to get a lot of exposure,” said Shump. You may wonder; where can you find him at in 10 years? Hopefully he would have started his own record label, and would have embarked on an international tour selling out worldwide arenas. Until now, you can find him performing throughout Statesboro, networking at, or better yet, “Google Me”.
