City The Great, NY Stapleton/artist/CEO recalls his life never being the same after he wrote his very first rap “F*ck School” at the age of nine. Without sounding cliche, the rest was history as his destiny with music and hip Hop was then sealed. As he matured, City diligently worked 24/7 to perfect and master his craft. He built up a catalog of music including a series of mixtapes, studio albums, and collaborations with Hip Hop legends and pioneers. His grind didn’t go unnoticed, in fact, once Special Ed caught wind to City’s music he immediately signed him as the first artist on his label SEmedia. “I was taken back, City The Great is refreshing to the ears, his realness is authentic and he strives to keep the culture and elements of Hip Hop alive.” -Special Ed
City The Great is also coined a NY Stapleton for other endeavors as CEO to Certified Nation Entertainment and co-orchestrater of the Annual Classic Hip Hop and R&B Cookout in partnership with legendary Kool Rock Ski (The Fat Boys). “He has great talent and is making incredible moves in the industry, he keeps me young and motivated, this is just the beginning.” – Kool Rock Ski
Both Special Ed, Kool Rock Ski, and other founding fathers of Hip Hop are impressed with Great’s ability to reach the masses, globally via potent storytelling that brings the elements of Hip Hop back to the forefront.
