Thursday, February 5, 2009

Nuthin But Hitz Entertainment will be at the third annual Pittsburgh Hip Hop Awards Sunday at the Pittsburgh Hilton.
The artists are nominated for "Record Label of the Year."
The label comprises artists Charles B. "C. Willz" Williams, 28, of Monessen, a Donora native; Jonathen C. Bass "Blaze," 29, of Monongahela, a Monessen native; and Todd Walker, a.k.a. "D.J. Profyle," of Monongahela.
Williams has been performing since the age of 3. He has been playing piano since he was 5 and wrote and composed his first song at 6. He wrote his first rap at age 12.
Bass has been writing poetry since he was 8 and wrote his first rap at 14.
Walker, a deejay for the past five years with Lethal DJ Services, joined N.B.H. in 2006.
They all have been friends since their childhood and graduated together from Ringgold High School with the class of 1999.
Williams and Bass have been performing together for about 15 years. They started recording in 2003 and organized NBH in 2006
NBH manager Denise "Neeso" Poole, of Monessen, said they are now looking for support at the hip hop awards, as the winners are voted on by fans.
Voting for the Pittsburgh Hip Hop Awards ends at noon Saturday. Voting can be done on the Web site, www.pittsburghhiphopawards.com.
The awards show starts at 7 p.m. Sunday.
Poole said their music is a blend of rhythm and blues, hip hop and rap. She said they have been performing, recording and writing their own music for more than 10 years.
They perform around the tri-state area at clubs and other venues. They have found success and a fan base by performing at the monthly "hip hop buffet" at the Shadow Lounge in East Liberty.
The open stage event is held the first Monday of the month.
They are also scheduled to perform Feb. 13 at Eck's Lounge in Monongahela.
"They've been able to meet a lot of people in the music industry, and really get their names out there," Poole said.
The men record in studios around the Valley and are always writing new material.
"They've been friends for over 12 years and they all just love performing," she said.
She said being nominated for a Pittsburgh Hip Hop Award will boost their profile.
The Pittsburgh Hip Hop Awards was created to showcase the hip hop music scene in the city and around the region.
The awards program consists of 35 categories, including best male/female artists, best producer, best singers, best DJs, recording studios and even best barbershops and athletes.

Bio

Born January 28, 1981 in the small but rough town of Donora, PA, Charles B.Williams(C.Willz)grew up with the strong influences of the mc's in the 80's and 90's. However, it was his father(a lead singer in a band in the 50's & 60's)who exposed him to the sounds of the hits that were before his time. "It's crazy, I can remember my father in the livingroom singing/playin classic R&B/Soul jams on our piano and me playin along side him with my pots and pans drumset like it was yesterday", says Willz. "My mom raised me up in the church from my earliest days so that's where I get my gospel background...where it all started." C.Willz at the young age of just 3 years old was already playing the drums for his church choir. When he turned 4 he learned how to play the piano and he composed his 1st song for an elementary school contest a few years later at age 6. By the time he was in middle school, a true double threat was born. Willz started singing and rapping in talent shows but he didn't began recording until he dropped out of college. Since then he wrote, produced, manufactured, and distributed his 1st album, "Born 2 Do It". He has also won several battle of da bands contest, been on many mixtapes, and underground cd's. More recently, he started a record label with Blaze and Dj Profyle, Nuthin-But-Hitz Entertainment. "Nuthin-But-Hitz ain't just our name, it's what we do", Willz proclaimed."It's not just a label, it's a whole movement." Because he's been influenced by a wide range artists, C.Willz has a
trully unique sound that has never been heard before. There are a few artists in the industry today who rap and dabble in singing every now and then but C.Willz excels in both genres. He defintely has an original style that sounds like no other but if you enjoy music from artists such as Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G, Beanie Sigel, Da Lox, Lil Wayne, T-Pain, and Ne-yo then you'll fall in love with his music. C.Willz is the double threat of NBH Entertainment. He is an artist with truly limitless potential!
