In 2002 PlatinumBoyFCJ hired Attorney David Bercuson to launched Dreamer Vision Records Inc . Since Frank Cornelius Sr. was not only one of South Florida’s greatest Bass guitar players he was also the creator of Bass songs in the 90’s such as: “ Bass Mechanic (M.C.A.D.E.)”, “Get Retarded (Now Go) (KJ and Da’ Fellas)”, “Shy D Is Back “(M.C. Shy D) and “Mega Jon's Bass (Mega Jon)” and the biggest and some might say the very first Miami Bass record Bass Rock Express(M.C.A.D.E.)
when Bass Rock Express was released, the demand was so great that it tied up every pressing plant in Miami, causing other records from every label to be delayed.

Frank Cornelius Sr. went on to be one of the greatest sound engineers in South Florida teaching his oldest son Frank “PlatinumBoyFCJ” Cornelius Jr. at the age of 15 years old the skills to carry on. As a start PlatinumBoyFCJ began producing for local acts in the community before producing and engineering for some of the very same acts such as An All Out Bash ( M.C.A.D.E.) and Gigolo Tony (I’m Old School)
PlatinumBoyFCJ watched his Dad Frank Sr. perform on stage (playing Bass guitar or Keyboards) or in the studio with artist such as: Betty Wright, Gloria Estefan, and many, many more. Because of all the support he’ll get from Dad’s Celebrity Clientel PlatinumBoyFCJ decided to launch his label in South Florida (Miami).

Although South Florida has established a name for itself in rap music, this Hip-Hop/ R&B producer, singer, dancer, songwriter, engineer and now CEO is not limited to rap. His fresh, new beat is quite the opposite and his sound is R&B with a rap delivery and it is getting the attention of executives around the world.

“I almost couldn’t stop smiling,” said Platinum, when the station offered him the full-time gig.
“When you come into something new and someone says, ‘Hey man, your first day was excellent, it’s a feeling like I’ve never had before,”. “And I love it; I love every second of it.”
A longtime music producer and entertainer, PlatinumBoyFCJ joined WFLM in May as host of “The Old School Backyard Party.”
He said he’ll continue to host that show from 8 p.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays.
Cornelius is nicknamed “Platinum,” because of his success as a South Florida hip-hop music producer, he said, and because of his family’s famous band, which has sold more than 10 million copies of such hits as “Treat Her Like a Lady” and “Too Late to Turn Back Now.”
