Special Guest: Author Cassius Ali
Cassius started writing in High school where he wrote plays, won speech contests and became one of the editors on the year book staff. Later, he wrote two books of his own for Barlow Elementary School in Plainfield, NJ, while studying at the George St. play house.
Cassius also wrote a number of shows for the children of Barlow School and represented the school for city wide P T O two years in a row. Since, then Cassius has gone on to writing commercials, stories, for New York projects and more.
In March of 2012 Cassius came out with one of two books he plans to release this year. The first is a poetry book called “The Last Word”. He chose poetry to start because he believes if you can bring words to life in a poem, you can do the same in a story. Which is why the second book, is a story book with three stories in one. There are two bullying stories, one from the perspective of the bully and the other from the perspective of the one being bullied. The last story is about long term relationships and some of the things that can or have happened in our lives.
Lynn Lockamy - a mainstay on the very competitive NY music scene is an artist to be reckoned with, having worked with Aaron Hall, Mary J. Blige, CeCe Winans, and Whitney Houston. Her recent release "Torture" is currently gaining buzz on the dance scene and Lynn is working on her R&B solo project. She grew up with gospel music in the church and rhythm and blues in her living room, eventually learning that music was an experience... a spiritual journey. Song has a soul!
As a child, Lynn was already singing for notables such as former NY Mayor Ed Koch, and Jesse Jackson. In her teen years she was a member of the Grammy award winning gospel ensemble, Hezekiah Walker and the Love Fellowship Choir. She got her first break as a solo recording artist in her college years, when two up and coming producers asked her to lend her vocal talents to their dance music tracks, "Love So Strong" and "Hanging On".
Shortly after Lynn found herself on a 6-month gospel tour through Europe with Queen Esther Marrow and the Harlem Gospel Singers. During that time she started penning her own R& B songs and auditioning for Broadway. She was actually offered the part of Joanne in the hit musical "Rent" twice. Family misfortune didn't allow her to take the opportunity. Sneaking her demo to a limo driver, Prince and Matthew Knowles both got to hear the talent that is Lynn Lockamy and noted her as a songwriter worthy of hire. In 2002 she released "Fire" by Kerry Chandlar.

Writing the international hit “Chicken Noodle Soup” when she was just fifteen, Harlem artist Young B tapped into her gifts way ahead of her time.
Not knowing the record that DJ Enuff broke one summer afternoon would reach the likes of the Oprah Winfrey Show, Regis and Kelly, Ellen Degeneres, 106 & Park and even Sesame Street, Bianca Dupree remains a young but yet extremely talented entertainer creeping upon her peak.
Already nailing a "Best Dance Cut" Soul Train Award for the single she wrote off of DJ Webstars "Caught in the web" album back in 2007 and remixes from Lil Wayne, Trina, and Fabolous, this 21 year old raptress is destined on the day in which she will receive the first of her many Grammys.
Opening shows at Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music hall, The Apollo Theatre, and a 76ers halftime game when she was just 17, 4 years later this young talented female is coming for the throne full force. Now returning from a brief hiatus and linking with French Montana’s Coke boy Mob, Young B is stepping to claim her title as a worldwide superstar while also striving to become the first female mogul of hip hop.
Joseph Asmah is the Senior Pastor of All Nations Church in Kenilworth New Jersey where God is using him mightily to release potential in many individuals and bringing them to the place of achieving destinies. He is a Psalmist, Teacher, Counselor and a Consultant to many churches in the area of worship and leadership. He serves under the Apostolic covering of Rev. Dr. Frank Ofosu-Appiah (General Overseer of All Nations & Living Springs International Churches).
Pastor Joe Asmah is the founder of Psalmody School of Worship, and Battle Axe Prayer Ministries (a non denominational prayer ministry). Many marriages at the verge of breaking have been renewed and restored and broken lives have been amended under his ministry and counseling.
With his many years of leadership experience, and rich ministry as a worshipper, Pastor Joe has impacted and poured into countless individuals with his humility, affection for the things of God and great personality. He is happily married to his wife Eunice and is blessed with three wonderful children.
In November 2007, Joe and Eunice obeyed the voice of God to separate themselves from the local church where they had served as the Minister of Worship and Associate Pastor for 10 years. It felt like God’s calling unto Abraham to leave his family to an unknown land. Joe and Eunice had no idea what God’s new direction of service would be, but they were ready to obey.
On January 27, 2008 a warm send off service was held for them by the local church, after which Joe and Eunice were released to go and fulfill God’s purpose for their lives. After 10 months of waiting on the Lord in prayer God confirmed through various means his intent for Joe and Eunice Asmah to start a new work in New Jersey. Many doors were opened by the Lord including a place of worship at Union Baptist Church.
Pastor Joe felt a strong urge by the Lord to submit under the Apostolic covering of his mentor and spiritual father, Rev. Dr. Frank Ofosu Appiah, who happily embraced the vision and has ever since been of a great support to the church. All Nations Church, NJ then became a member of the Living Springs International Ministries.
The first service was held on November 9, 2008 at the living room of Joe and Eunice Asmah with eleven adults in attendance. All Nations Church, NJ was officially inaugurated on April 19, 2009.

Lyrical leader of the original Furious Five and founder of a splinter version of the group during the mid-'80s, Melle Mel wrote many of the legendary raps featured on Grandmaster Flash tracks. Born Melvin Glover, he and his brother Nate (aka Kidd Creole) (not the Caribbean dance-popster of the same name) joined up with Cowboy (Keith Wiggins) in 1978 to form the Three MC's, with production handled by Grandmaster Flash (Joseph Saddler).
After Scorpio (originally Mr. Ness, aka Ed Morris) and Raheim (Guy Williams) joined up as well, the group recorded two singles (one as the Younger Generation and Flash & the Five) before they became Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five and recorded the magnificent "Superappin'" for Enjoy, owned by R&B legend Bobby Robinson.
One year later, the group began recording for Sugar Hill and scored on the R&B charts with the wild party jams "Freedom" and "Birthday Party." In 1982, "The Message" became an instant rap classic, one of the first glimmers of social consciousness in hip-hop, and Melle Mel was responsible for many of the cutting lyrics. The record's enormous success ended up fracturing the group, however, despite subsequent successes like "New York New York" and "The Message II (Survival)." Melle Mel wasn't happy about sharing composer credits for "The Message" (especially with Sylvia Robinson), and Flash sued Sugar Hill, citing Robinson's conflict of interest (she not only co-owned the label, but produced and managed the group).
Though most of their beefs were directed at Sugar Hill and not inwards, Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five split down the middle, with Flash departing for Elektra with Kidd Creole (Mel's brother) and Raheim while Melle Mel stayed put and formed his own version of the group with Cowboy and Scorpio. (After a court battle regarding rights to the name, Melle Mel was allowed the use of "Grandmaster" as well.) Late in 1983, Sugar Hill released Melle Mel's "White Lines (Don't Don't Do It)," variously described as anti-drugs or pro-drugs, though the death of one of Mel's friends, a drug dealer, a few weeks before release caused him to add the parentheses.
Mel's best year came in 1984, when he rapped over Chaka Khan's platinum, Grammy-winning "I Feel for You" (the first exposure to rapping for mainstream audiences). He was also drafted for the rap film Beat Street, where Grandmaster Melle Mel & the Furious Five performed their new hit "Beat Street" (aka "Beat Street Breakdown") and appeared next to Afrika Bambaataa, the Treacherous Three, Doug E. Fresh, and Rock Steady Crew.
Mel recorded a pair of LPs for Sugar Hill during the mid-'80s, then reunited with Flash and the rest of the original Furious Five for a 1988 LP titled On the Strength. It failed miserably in an atmosphere that was decidedly anti-old school, and neither of them recorded for almost ten years. A 1997 record, Right Now, paired Melle Mel with Scorpio, but also failed to sell. His new project, Die Hard, debuted in 2001 with On Lock. John Bush, Rovi
Special Guest: KING RUSS
Although he was labeled as another kid from the streets of Harlem, Russ’s talent made provisions for him to be recognized as a “Hood Icon”! Russ recognized early on, age 13 to be exact, music was not only his passion, but his calling. What began as a hobby and means of self or situational expression, soon developed into a quest to become not just another household name or a “Hood Icon”, but to become a “Rap Icon”. Unbeknownst to many, King Russ’s talent extends beyond rap as he actually developed his talent first as a singer.
Notwithstanding the fact that Russ excelled as a singer, he yearned to fuse his singing talent with his distinct and vivacious rap style over his rhythmic and melodic tracks. With the mix of the two talents, this would give him double the exposure on stage and increase his fan base. His passion, talent, and love for rap is what got him in the game, but he believes his versatility will set him apart, but it will also develop and grow his following. Without making comparisons, in this day and age, the rap industry lacks well-rounded artists’ who can transcend the rap genre reminiscent of King Russ’s ability to cross over.
Equipped with a harmonious vibrato and thought provoking lyrics or “bars”, Russ placates the ladies while remaining true to his affiliation with the notorious D-Boys of Harlem. Armed with these charismatic attributes and uncharacteristically sound talents, Russ believes these same combinations will assist him in his quest for rap greatness.
Understanding that becoming a rap legend is not an easy task, Russ pays homage to the iconic and infamous rap pioneers who have paved the way for the rap genres success and to those who have paid attention to his grind. To be more specific, Russ idolizes and attributes his success to Grandmaster Mele Mel and Ice-T.
Today, at the age of 21, he credits such artists as Tupac, Mase, Michael Jackson and Fabolous for influencing his talent for rap and lyrical gifts that sets him apart from the rest. More importantly, he credits “Chris Brown” who he deems as a musical genius and icon. Russ was frank to explain Chris Brown as, “A great entertainer, he’s my definition of real talent, which shows in his performances.” King Russ is currently working on a number of projects which include mixtapes as well as putting the finishing touches on his debut album. King Russ just released a mixtape entitled “Punch 4 Punch” which is the Deluxe Edition and follow-up to #IAMKing. Circulating singles by King Russ include: “Greetings” his introduction to the music industry, “Finish This” which in his words is “the rebirthing of Hip-Hop”, “Let It Go” an R&B track and “Watch Em Twerk” a club anthem touted as the fourth most tweeted song in music.
With over 11,000 Twitter followers and 113,000 video views on YouTube, King Russ exhibits industry presence, innovative rap style, a passion for perfecting his performance, and an unwavering drive for rap stardom. Stand up and take notice because King Russ has arrived! For more news and updates on King Russ visit http://twitter.com/TheRealKingRuss.
