#TEXASRAPFEST2014

 

 

FIRST TIME IN HISTORY, William Green jr and Tony Draper presents the “Texas Rap Fest” hosted by the legendary Dj Greg Street. 43 ACTS from Texas will hit the stage at the Gexa Energy Pavilion,Dallas, TXSunday, October 26, 2014 at 1:00 PM.

William Green Jr, attended Oklahoma State University on a football scholarship, and played for the Ottawa Rough Riders in the NFL. In 1996 William recorded two demo songs and then moved to California to pursue a music career. He was signed to a multi-million dollar recording contract by Death Row Records in 1997 and became part of their stable of artists including: Snoop Dog, Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre and other multi-platinum artists. In 1999 he founded his own label, Country Boy Records, whose first release landed at #9 on the Billboard Rap Chart in 2002. In 2010, he founded Platinum League and has been responsible for all development including securing artist participation, the distribution agreements, and defining business model strategies.

Tony Draper Founder of the legendary Suave House Records at just 16 years old has been an influential force in the music industry for over 20 years. Completely independent, the Houston-based mogul introduced the masses to the likes of 8Ball & MJG, Tela and former Geto Boy, Big Mike, selling millions of records and earning plaques along the way. Draper also used his keen business sense to help Cash Money secure their six-figure deal with Universal back in 1998.With his latest venture, The Indy Way, Tony Draper proves that once again he has his finger on the pulse of urban culture. A multi media vehicle for Draper’s unique vision, The Indy Way is a fully staffed production company effectively designing and executing full marketing promotion, digital services and advertising campaigns for television, music and film.Currently in production Pure features musical input from superstar Rick Ross; one of many artists whose career Tony Draper played a major role in helping to shape. It was a decade ago when Draper recognized the “it” factor in a young Rick Ross and signed him to his first recording contract. Today, thanks in good measure to Draper’s instincts the multi platinum selling Rick Ross is arguably the hottest name in hip-hop. In fact on his latest album, Ross pays homage to Draper and Suave House with a verse in the song “9 Piece.

 “The thing that a lot of DJs don’t understand is that, there’s more to it than just being a DJ,” “There’s more to it than just saying, ‘You’re breaking new records. It’s really like you’re the person between the public and the celebrity.”“You’re the link,” he adds. – Dj Greg Street

As one of the most recognizable voices in radio and the man behind the phrase “Its 6 o’clock, its 6 o’clock, time for Greg Street to Rock,” Greg Street is the true voice of the people.  Having rocked the airwaves in Mississippi (WORV-WJMG), Alabama (WBLX 93), Houston (KMJQ), Dallas (K-104/KKDA) and currently holding it down in Atlanta (V-103/WVEE) all over a 20 year span,Dj  Street has definitely positioned himself as the music gateway to the South.

The legendary Dj Greg Street is not just working for one of the top Radio Stations in the south he works with two of the top shoe companies in the world like: Adidas and Nike and artists such as : Future and TI . Dj Greg Street also heads the nationwide Sneaker Friends event series has a Harley-Davidson club membership and takes part in his annual Car & Bike Show tour. The closest to his heart, though, is: We Need 2 Read, a reading initiative he started for school-aged children. Each year, his scholarship foundation awards kids with toys and video games, and a total of $10,000 is divided between the eligible students and schools.
