For Immediate Release:
Raymond “Conan” Ramirez, Puerto Rican rapper born and raised in the “Boogie Down” Bronx during a time when Hip Hop was at its most influential peek. “Lil Ray” developed a passion for music early after watching his father “Shampoo” hype man and road manager for Main One the Ghetto Child and performing on stage with his mother “Spanish Fly”, who was the lead MC in an all-ladies rap group.
He understood quickly that everyone has a story and his strongest method of speaking was behind the pen. He felt that with his rhymes, he could tell his story and people would relate. Between his mother and father’s high-profile industry connections, Conan was blessed to be raised around many staples in the industry, such as Big Pun, Fat Joe, NORE, NAS, all the way down to Def Jam Vice President Yvette Davila and Senior Vice President of Def Jam Sean “Pecas.”
While actively training with the Morris Park Boxing Club, Conan created rap duo Illest Spitters with best friend Young Cor. They released a mix tape hosted by Hip Hop legend; Kid Capri called The Youngest in Charge. After multiple showcases and numerous rap battles, Young Cor decided to Pursue other endeavors which forced Conan to produce a solo career as a talent. His first solo project titled “The New Beginning” is the journey of Conan’s transition into a solo artist, marketing guru, as well as businessman. Conan was fortunate to learn the business aspect of the game through his father’s marketing and promotion company YNVS Marketing and Promotions.
The buzz created from this album as well as memorable performances resulted in high-profile interviews, appearances, and collaborations. In the summer of 2013, rapper NORE gave Conan an opportunity to open up for him and his group The Good Belt Gang on their 15 city Coast to Coast Mix-Tape tour. While on tour, NORE was sold on Conan’s energy and delivery on stage. After seeing how actively the crowd was engaged, he immediately nicknamed Conan “The Energy God.” After learning what life was like on tour as a talent, Conan took the business route and helped launch a thriving 2013 facebook game; “Play-GigIt.” This Promotion included a 35-day tour including high-profile rappers such as Lil Wayne, 2chainz all the way down to local artists and entrepreneurs.
In between tour life, Conan managed to attend College at Borough of Manhattan Community, work full time all while writing, performing and growing as an artist. His second solo project, “Second Step to Success”, is the story of the maturation Conan projects in his new lyrics. Between his witty Freestyles, universal flow and flawless delivery, Conan explains how to achieve success in this industry while never being classified as “the average rapper.”

SKATEBOARDING ON A MISSION
WRITTEN BY: GENEVA RELF
“It’s not where you're from, but where you’re headed” or “Your past doesn't predestine your future you do!”
These are just a few timeless quotes that are proven true to professional skateboarder Darren Harper. When it comes to highlighting those in the celebrity limelight that are giving back we often forget to appreciate the struggle it took behind their efforts! Darren Harper is not only closing the gap in a sport dominated by the stigma we don’t belong, but he’s giving an outlet to those who didn’t know life provides other options outside of conflict and struggle! Recently Darren Harper graced Providence,Rhode Island with a skateboard camp, and the cost absolutely free! The first camp was in Washington, D.C. he’s gained many names thanks to his fans "Floyd Mayweather of skateboarding" or “Obama of skateboarding” Darren’s goal is to promote his success through skateboarding. He understands that not every youth has a basketball hero, or musical aspirations but just needs a positive outlet to remind them anything is possible regardless of your environment! For most inner-city urban youth drugs, gangs, guns, and crime come with the sun rising, however Darren Harper is shedding light on paths outside of cultural stigmas.
Skateboarding in many respects wasn’t considered an “Afro-American” sport just the concept of a board on wheels, has captured many, exposing a world many didn’t realize was explorable. Furthermore Darren Harper doesn’t expect everyone to pick up a board, but he does want to open the door to dreams, hardworking ambition to be greater than expected! I recently interviewed Mr. Harper his back story alone should be inspirational from the drug game to skateboarding and giving back! Showing many that it’s not always how you start your journey, but how you choose to finish and be remembered! A free skateboarding camp might not produce the next level of skateboarders, or sponsored athletes. However it can produce a passion in new outlets for a young mind to obtain many dreams. It might produce a parents last hope to encourage their child away from a life of crime and countless struggle!
You can keep up with the latest of Darren Harper by following him on twitter @Dstreets and checkout GBSC for all your skateboarding needs! Darren Harper is closing the gap with education, boards, and purely motivation for the minds many overlook or have already counted out for the future! The media often times gets clouded with drama, but today as you read this remind yourself not every hero wears a cap. Not every youth deserves to have the book closed on them, furthermore you never know what’s possible when give HOPE back!
Special Thanks to
