Support Grand National Ink Real Chicago Music and Real Hip-Hop!
I hear a lot of complaints about the lack of talent in Hip-Hop in the past 10-15 years. I am one of those people who complain because the BS music seems to have killed off real rap, real hip hop, real music. I agree that the need for natural talent has declined a lot, as the thirst for big business in Hip-POP grew. Its so bad that people who aren’t even real artists like “Cash-me-outside”, “Tay-K’ and a multitude of others have been sought after by major labels in hopes of a cash cow.
Getting back on track Grand National Ink aren’t your average “trap”, “auto-tune” rappers these dudes are stamped and approved for greatness! Grand National Ink has the talent, now we just need the support from YOU the people! If you are into rappers who really rap, don’t use auto tune, don’t spit BS lyrics, if you are into real Hip-Hop with a eclectic “trap, rock, soul” sound then you will vibe to this album!!

Chicago’s own Beadz drops new mixtape “The Power of Social Media” Follow on Twitter @Beadz1st
Hip-Hop Artist Beadz born on Chicago’s Southside made his name from rapping in cypher’s at his high school lunch table to rapping on street corners, eventually to find himself rapping on one of the Biggest Stages in 2003 (WGCI’s Chicago Idol). Beadz since then has been featured in major publications such as Source Magazine, Hip-Hop Weekly “Unsigned Hype”, Ozone and countless more. Beadz live shows & performances has enabled him to share stages with Hip-Hop Greats like DMX, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Common, & Fat Joe and currently earned him the opportunity to tour with the Living Legend Twista.
Beadz music is a reflection of his struggle growing up in a single parent home on the rough streets of Chicago. Beadz started hustling the streets at an early age and he’s been able to apply the hustle mentality to his music career. His music is passionate; and he’s able to convert that passion in to witty bars and catcy hooks. Beadz current single “Go Hard” ft Twista has appeared in mix shows on Power 92.3 & 107.5 WGCI in Chicago as well as Shade45 and Hip Hop Nation XM channels. With original music he created featuring Twista & Layzie Bone of Bone Thugs & Harmony, Beadz has become a household name with the local popular #1800HurtNow radio jingle he created for a Chicago law firm.
Into the spotlight for which she was born steps a genuine diva. With musical wisdom that belies her youth, Celeste Buckingham seamlessly blends contemporary R&B, soul, hip-hop, and can rock a street corner jam just as easily as a sold-out stadium. Celeste has a hit on her hands, “Run Run Run” Get ready to make your finger sore from hitting the replay button. Ears really do smile.
The name “The Pop Princess of Europe”, refers to Celeste’s powers “a gift”. Modestly glossing the endless hours she has spent honing them. Within the opening lines of her debut “Run, Run, Run“, Celeste lets us know there’s depth to complement those operatic pipes. “All is fair in love and war / but all I do is love you more”. That’s the kind of compression and wit you would expect from a veteran wordsmith, not a 17-year old ingenue. Celeste continues to electrify the industry with works whose quality keeps her in a league of her own.
Celeste Buckingham is a certified platinum artist and MTV Music Award winner in Europe. “Crushin’ My Fairytale” is set to blow up and crush the charts from the US to Japan. It has already made Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40!
Celeste is currently an official ambassador for L’Oreal. In addition to that she was once the youngest X-Factor judge, as well as the second youngest Cosmopolitan cover model in history. She has starred in a feature film as – what else? – a princess!
