Shontel Greene releases book Mastermind: Born a Statistic, Determined to Die a Winner 12 Years Later

All smiles for National Author Shontel Greene after book sales hit over 10,000 units the first week of the release of Mastermind. Shontel Greene known as “Baltimore’s Empress” has evolved from a once titled, American Gangster/Drug Dealer, to a renown woman of excellence. Recently featured on the BET series “Trap Queens”, the empress was able to highlight the hardships of her childhood and display for the masses the decision-making that led to her survival. Greene plans to publish her memoir, simply titled Mastermind, later this year. The highly-anticipated read will cover everything from her upbringing with a mother cursed by addiction to coming into the drug game for the sake of survival. The streets by no means were an easy teacher. Shontel faced much hardship and many years in a game where she became subject to robberies, kidnapping, multiple arrests and near death experiences like being shot. It was when Judge Johnson mercifully reduced her 20-year sentence that Greene realized she was headed down the wrong path and committed to change. Unlike many in her situation, Greene has always been a lover of knowledge and maintained her studies. With that mindset, she managed to complete two master’s degrees and a doctorate in nursing, in addition to founding and running several successful businesses. In the midst of grossing millions annually, she discovered her passion and founded Nursez R Us, which has now become one of the largest healthcare employers in Maryland. Greene is now one of America’s most successful businesswomen and shares her wealth of knowledge in her forthcoming book Mastermind, which details her journey. Her goal is to be an inspiration and the light at the end of the tunnel for many who may be where she once was, in the dark. Visit to learn more about Baltimore’s Empress.

Who is Von Barz?

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Promo

Tony Washington, better known as Von Barz. Representing Charlotte, NC by way of Georgetown, SC.

I jumped off the porch at the age of 10 and encountered all of what life really is today. I’ve seen life’s roses and witnessed life’s nightmares. My parents grinded from the very beginning to show me and my 3 siblings a better life coming from 3 to a bed to my own room as a teen. What I’m saying is I appreciate the bottom middle and top. I spent a lot of time with my folks in Georgetown and it was love, I had such a big family that being outside for me always felt like being at the crib. I learn to be tough, show respect, survive, stay grounded, hustle and most importantly stay humble but stand on business. I never lost that core and eventually my athletic abilities put me through school earning a college degree.

During college I would go to different yards and battle other rappers becoming a well-known spitta. My rap name is intentional, so you know when you listen to my music “Ima give you Barz.”  I’ve amassed over 10 albums in the vault ready for release and multiple projects out now. I took my talents serious 3 years ago and began building a buzz which struck me up a Distribution deal with the Stachehaus powered by Sony Orchard.

My music has landed me multiple independent artist awards and showcase trophies along with 100s of thousands of streams and international recognition. I’ve collaborated with Caribbean, European & African artist. Multiple international tours to Jamaica, Europe & Africa. Inspired by icons such as the late great Malcolm X & Jackie Robinson with musical influences from Biggie, Pac, Nas, and Lloyd Banks. Tap in with my recent hit Poppy Da Seed (No Discount EP) on Von Barz Vevo and tune in for more hot content on the way.

[New Music] Levi Johnson – So Fly

Blog, Music

Rising indie star Clay James has been gaining a lot of traction as of late through a series of freestyles that have been going viral on social media, but today Clay put out a tweet stating how he wanted to work with Levi Johnson. By looking at the name Levi Johnson you would think this is probably a male or female artist but Levi Johnson is actually a very talented girl group that’s been buzzing in Atlanta for quite some time. This trio consists of Alyx, Dre, and Kobe; similar to James they have a somewhat nostalgic old Atlanta sound but with a refreshing and current twist. Today may be the first time a lot of people heard of Levi Johnson, but they are not as unknown as you may think. The group has garnered co-signs from industry vets Jamaica Craft, Usher, and Ciara to name a few. They made an appearance in the TV series “Step Up” and they’re music videos have accumulated thousands of views on YouTube. The group is gearing up to drop a new single which is highly anticipated amongst their fans. Until it’s release, please do yourself a favor and stream Levi’s song “So Fly” on all digital streaming platforms.

Sin City Thrilla – The Future of Vegas Entertainment


Alex Jernigan, better known by his stage name “Sin City Thrilla,” has quietly taken the Las Vegas entertainment scene by storm over the last several years. His innovative marketing techniques combined with his team’s demographic targeting has allowed them to work with some of the biggest names in Hip Hop such as Rod Wave, Lil Durk, Shordie Shordie, Kalan.FRFR, TeeFlii, Bryson Tiller, BLXST, Keyshia Cole, Kenndog, AMBJaay, GirlzLuhDev, and more.

While he is quickly becoming known as a DJ for big shows he spends more time working with sports teams to produce their entertainment. From his work with the Raiders and UNLV he has quickly expanded into new ventures with the likes of the NBA, Mountain West Conference, Shrine Bowl and more. When we spoke with him it was clear that he is passionate about producing games in a way that engages the crowd while giving the players the best chance to succeed. For UNLV that includes bringing back the famed “Gucci Row” by having local stars return to the venue.

The most interesting aspect of his career is the work he puts on behind the scenes however. From managing artists, producing multimedia content, and working on brand marketing he truly has his hands in almost every entertainment aspect in the city. Currently he is working on a Vegas themed album to showcase the talent that lives beyond the strip. In his own words he said that it is the most important project that he has ever worked on. We can’t wait to see how this project develops and the impact that it has. If there is anything that we have learned watching him grow over the past few years, he will be someone that has a lasting impact on Las Vegas.
