Bernard M.W Conner & Terrell Williams

Bernard Conner (Alias:N.A.R.Derange. Alter Ego: B. KompleX) is a very talented lyricist who displays aggressive wordplay yet with a conscious message embedded in each verse. Born in Philadelphia, Germantown 10/14/94, Bernard started writing lyrics at the of age eleven when he heard Lose Yourself by Eminem. His first audience was his mother and little brother. He later got used to rapping in front of people. He would listen to Rock and Rap music while in his room isolated from the outside world.

T is a rap artist (born September 24, 1995) from Phila Pa. Better known as Rell-I-Vent. His first memorable experience with music occurred in school when he was 12. A bunch of his friends rushed into the cafeteria beating on the table and all started to rap, and there he found out he had skill and from that point on would work further to better his craft at rap, or as he calls it “speaking his mind.” His influence is none other then all American talented Dwayne Carter a.k.a

(Lil Wayne) of Young Money Cash Money Records.

Jamie Harris: I make and sell accessories inspired by Japanese Street fashion. My designs are very distinctly girly and colorful. The materials I use include (but are not limited to) ribbon, rhinstones, colored aluminum chain, crotchet, fabric, lace, and lots of ruffles. I was born in Philadelphia and returned to live her three years ago. I began designing as an attempt to work through my depression. I began putting all my frustration, all my fear, my disappointment and every other negative emotion I had lingering inside of me, into my designs. I wanted to take all of the ugly, and recycle it into something that would make others around me happy, and when I wore my designs, it did. After encouragement from family and friends I opened an online store.
