"Entell breathed new life into Vancouver’s NewMusicWest Festival with an act that engaged and moved the audience with rhythm and vibe". "Entell took control of his audience, opened them up and really made them feel part of the experience rather than just spectators." - Ryan McCann – NewMusicWest Festival Staff


North Carolina-based Entell appears poised to lead a new generation of rappers with his debut disc. Entell weaves different modern regional styles with old school flavoring, augmented by tasteful beats and samples. The lyrics are thought-provoking, sometimes edgy and street smart, and others more on the fun side. At their core, the words are accessible so the listener can experience what he is trying to say. Entell also possesses a muscular voice reminiscent of Chuck D, with the capability of toning it down when the song's emotion calls for it. Perhaps the song “I Luv Hip-Hop” says it best, because the true passion put into this CD is obvious.

Darius Jones, "I really liked Entell's songs Feel The Vibe and How That Sound. His lyrical content is great and his flow is hot. I loved Entell's song structure, which the hooks tied into his verses. Also, I loved his tone and definitely, definitely would love to hear more from Entell. - Stephen Strother, ARMUSIC1


"Strong track! Drama is very commercial; nice appeal. We know alot of our dj's are gonna like this one.. especially the mixtape, mixers and club djs.. the bpm's are great from mixing.. real nice track"! - Looking4AirPlay.Com


“Great flow, lyrics, and it will not be long before people know Entell”. - Vic Frost - Program Director Hot 104.5 Radio


From the Intro, I was impressed. Period. The MC known as Entell introduces himself on the lead-in cut as an “up North dude wit Southern influences” but from the tracks on his debut E=MC2, he proves himself to be far more than his blanket statement makes him out to be. Obviously not content to be just another hip-hop artist, the urgent, meticulous flow Entell displays give him far more credibility just from first listen. Covering a vast spectrum of topics familiar to the more-than-casual hip-hop listener, Entell’s voice carries weight, and with the abundance of lyrical prowess displayed in each track, it won’t be difficult to envision this album being a worthwhile purchase for fans of “true-school”.

From the required “I’m the shit” braggadocio required for any MC to spit (Have No Fear) to introspective concept cuts (Feelin’ You), Entell’s energetic, tightly flow will not disappoint. Musically the production doesn’t always match him. This newcomer delivers a hell of an album to a hip-hop world starving for real MCs to make themselves known…E=MC2 is truly a recipe for dopeness.

“E=MC2." Hmm. "E(ntell)" = your average "emcee," squared. Okay, okay, not bad. With as little fanfare as a guy like Entell receives, something clever like that might sneak up on you. It's merely an album title, but it generally sums up how Entell works; beyond expectations. It's evident that I've all-too comfortably adjusted to a low standard in underground hip-hop, but I can thank an artist like Entell for helping me realize it. Simply put, HE HAS MAJOR LABEL TALENT.”

I went and listened to Entell's music and was VERY impressed. The songs sound great, as I really like the beats and especially the hooks. As I said, I was very impressed with the songs. Definitely think the songs can be competitive from the club level up to the commercial radio level. - Randy Sadd - PROTOCOL ENTERTAINMENT, LLC - Atlanta

Bio

It's a bird, it's a plane...no, it's the 22 year old hip-hop sensation Entell from Fayetteville, North Carolina. This young word-smith is bringing a wave of hip-hop equipped with all of the essential elements required to make him a sure-fire success.  Aaron White a.k.a E=MC2 has managed to formulate clever lyrics that compliments his production while working two jobs.

While listening to artists ranging from Notorious BIG, Common, Rakim, and his love for music in the late 90's gave Entell a foundation to build on. Entell begin taking steps required to sharpen his skills to a competitive level by writing poems and lyrics.  Attending school of the arts in his younger years gave Entell familiarity with different instrumentation, so he develops a fetish for writing music to all types of genres. Being one of the members of Darkshadows, a hip-hop trio, whom recorded their first single "Can't Hold Us" using a lamp shade as a microphone stand, earned the trio an opening act for national recording artists Trick Daddy, and Trina at the Crown Coliseum with a packed crowd of 2000 spectators. Coming from North Carolina to the Big Apple to perform was a challenge, but they electrified an audience of 350 with their hit song "Can't Hold Us" in the Queens Music Festival in New York City in July 2002. A few years later, the group disbanded, leaving Entell the choice to pursue his solo career. He created music for the masses, earning spots in the Florida Music Festival, Baltimore Music Festival, perfoming at Fayetteville State University and New Music West Festival, which Ryan McCann of New Music West Festival Staff stated “Entell takes control of his audience, open them up and really make them feel part of an experience rather than just spectators.”

Having nurtured himself on a different level of the business, Entell continues to evolve into a commercial success.  Writing memorable lyrics and working with various producers, Entell has perfected his craft.  His clever and witty lyrics, powerful, and crisp vocal delivery have mass appeal.  While he intentionally aims for the commercial market, Entell still keeps it underground.  Entell has a unique, yet familiar sound, which captures the listener's attention and before long will have them singing along.  MF’in Rapture of The Heat UnsignedMagazine.com said “I was impressed, Period.”  “Obviously not content to be just another hip-hop artist, the urgent, meticulous flow Entell displays give him far more credibility just from first listen. Covering a vast spectrum of topics familiar to the more-than-casual hip-hop listener, Entell’s voice carries weight, and with the abundance of lyrical prowess displayed in each track, it won’t be difficult to envision any album being a worthwhile purchase for fans of “true-school.”

Currently, Entell has released his mixtape titled "The Formula" which he toured Kuwait and Dubai to promote his music. Entell has created a global presence with his debut album "E=MC2" receiving hits on numberonemusic.com from various countries, which includes United States, Germany, Vietnam, Canada, France, United Kingdom, and Netherlands. Hip-Hop lovers cling to Entell's music and he have over 251,000 song plays on his numberonemusic.com site within a six month time-span. Matt Tomer of Rapreview.com stated “E=MC2." Hmm.

Simply put, “HE HAS MAJOR LABEL TALENT.”  Entell music have been licensed by MTV and MTV2 shows Pimp My Ride, Dances In The Hood, Adventures of Holly Hood and Next domestically and internationally. He proceeds to put in work in the studio preparing for his second release titled "Theory of Relativity."
