Crunkatlanta Magazine 2015

Who is Crunkatlanta? I am Eric aka Crunkatlanta & - The Internet Promoter, the one that is in love with Hip Hop. Follow me on Twitter @crunkatlantaMag . Born and raised in Detroit, MI. Yep, I'm from Seven Mile Rd and GreenfieldWhuddup Doe!! My first inspiration to get involved in the industry was when I found out that nobody heard of any Detroit rappers outside of Detroit ( Michigan). My first gig was with a friend (“T”) that I assisted with promoting Cam’ron back when he was a lil chunky in 1997. From there I found what my purpose was supposed to be. My all time fantasy career was to become a quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons. Once that dream was cut short from not getting the response back from -tryouts and competition over the years. I became hooked on music and brand marketing. ( Promo page )

Rollie Santana Rollie Santana | No Exchange (Bryson Tiller Exchange Remix) Rollie Santana (born Rhalexis Robinson: 19 October 1996 in Hattiesburg Mississippi) is a female rapper emerging as the new sound of hip hop. Growing up in she was surrounded by music of all genres, with her father being a popular local dj, which influenced her love for music. She was a very attentive student/athlete throughout her middle school and high school years, playing basketball and earning all A's and B's, but it was her love for language arts that led to her career choice. She began writing poems, short stories, and later the lyrics that would inspire her to freestyle and perform for her classmates who were in awe. With this new found inspiration she was set to begin her music career but things took a turn for the worse. Like so many other families in the Gulf regions, the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina forced her and family to move to Decatur, GA then later to Cartersville, GA where she finished her high school studies. What seemed like a tragedy was a blessing in disguise. Her Mississippi musical roots, merged with the diverse Atlanta sound, gave Rollie Santana a unique blend of hip hop that has allowed her to differentiate herself from other artist. Now as an independent artist Rollie is working non-stop to build her musical talents as well as her brand. Working to become a better songwriter, artist, and businesswoman is her main focus. By the looks of things she's well on her way

CRUNKATLANTA MAGAZINE I rep the West Coast, South Central Los Angeles to the fullest. I have so much love for my hometown and have mad respect for all of the greats who have laid the groundwork for me to even consider blessing the mic in this rap game” Such are the words of Darnell Biglow, known to those in the L.A. underground as simply BIGLOW. When asked what was his path to his first recording Biglow said the process was plain and simple: “Man, for as long as I can remember it has been about hip hop for me. I was just consumed by the beats, the music and the lyrics from the time I was little. Like so many kids in the ‘hood the music was all around me starting with Cube, Dre, Snoop, NWA, RUN DMC, Biggie. Eminem,Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil wayne. I loved the Ol’ skool guys like Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap and so many others to the point that rhymin’ was such a part of my being that as a kid in school I drove my teachers crazy for when we were reading out loud in class I rapped the passage in the books always trying to find a way to present the words on the page in a rap context. They thought I was crazy, but man this rap shit had me, it was my passion, and as I look back the truth is it was always in me from the first time I heard it. I knew it was what I was destined to do, write lyrics and spit rhymes” I.G. : @eyeambiglow Twitter : @biglowsolid Facebook : Youtube :

Born Rashida Pope a.k.a Shida P/ Shida Pope on March 15th 1988 in Tacoma, WA. I was raised in the Bronx , NY to DMV's Woodbridge VA. Now an official Singer,Actress and Promo Model. I began my journey as a promotional model for a company called the Paperboys Ent. Within that company I did events, club flyers,and co hosting from time to time at places like Heaven and Hell Which is located in Adams Morgan, Washington,Dc. I soon realized that I loved modeling but I did not like the hosting aspect so told my management that I could sing. Once that was established from recording in local studios I received my first Interview introducing myself as a model and aspiring singer on Futures FREEBANDZRADIO on bliss FM. Which is located in Washington,DC as well. While being a promotional model I found myself doing drops in the studio with DJCRUSH GROOVEY for a local mixtape. A few months later I left Paperboys ENT for personal reasons. I decided to be a freelance promo model and it was working out great, I was constantly doing shoots as well as going in the studio working on my singing. In the midst of this I received a call from a company called We Crank ENt to make a long story short I was their promo model and I decided to leave because of personal reasons not that long into doing it. I felt a little upset that I had already been with two companies that just did not seem to be what I was looking for. Then one day CokeBoys management got into contact with me and asked me if I would like to do some promotional modeling for the coke boys, I said yes and every since have been an affiliated promo model for the coke boys. While still grinding I linked up with a high school friend of mine who happened to be a photographer. After a meeting we decided to work together and he agreed that he would be my personal photographer and we have been working ever since. A few months after that I was granted with a second interview on WBOK RADIO located inTennesse. I was introduced as an official singer and a promo model with a Single Called Fallen for you to be released soon after. Once I released the song to WBOKRADIO it recieved radioplay. A couple of months after I auditioned for an acting role with a company called ROosevelt Ent for a movie called life according to Rashida, which I landed the part as a character who was a hairdresser by the name of NeNe. I then landed an interview at Raised By The Game Radio at ListenVisionStudios located in Washington, Dc. While I was going back and forth from shooting my scenes and from the studio I was posting the song all over my social media websites such as SoundCloud and Reverbnation. All I was focused on even up untill now is pushing my music which landed me a spot on a local mixtape called DMV TRAFFIK MUSIC 6 which can be found on Spinrilla hosted by One Desert Storms Radio Hosts as DJ EL Kanobe with the song :Fallen For You. I was also featured on's all female mixtape she's got next with the same single: Fallen For You. Months later I attended my movie Premiere was aired In October 2015 in MD at a theater as well as me being on the front cover of a magazine called MOTIVE in November this year. I have been accumulated fans from all over locally and continues to stay humble and determined non stop trend setter, I recently was featured in hip hop weekly magazine. Rudeboy magazine which is an overseas magazine and clothing line and been featured on a mixtape called clear the block. Currently working on mixtape CHERRY. Also had an article written on 2016.
