"Real 'Em In"

Over the 10+ years of their journey, Real 'Em In has sculpted and created their own sound and developed a respectful brand. It is their raw originality, great beats and real concepts from DJ Austen (Koncept) Medek and guitarist Joshua (Humpty) Obert, to their lyrically diverse and punch line heavy verses by Chad (Chad T) Blackburn and Nathaniel (Nate So?) Reynolds, that stands Real ‘Em In out from the crowd. Real 'Em In, have received radio airplay in NYC (hot 97), Madison Wisconsin (Z104) and Columbus Ohio (107.9)! They have performed at Red White and Boom, one of the Midwest largest Independence Day celebrations 3 years and counting. They have also performed various venues across the state of Ohio as well as the BX New York. They have performed with Hip-Hop legends, Bone Thugs N Harmony and used to run a monthly Hip-Hop event titled "Wordplay Thursday". Real 'Em In is currently working with Bubba Sparxxx and Crucifix on a project titled "We've Arrived" for the Black Salt film franchise. - PopVulture Entertainment Network

When Destiny Calls ANSWER! - Real 'Em In #REmaInrelevant

Nathaniel Reynolds is an unsigned artist who uses his talents to lead and not follow.  He shares a life of perception that is worth more than material gain.  Nates dedication and determination of over nine years to his lifes work can be felt through his music and seen in his strong work ethic.  He is the epitome of a song writer, spoken word artist, and emcee.  He is unique in his own form and can never be duplicated.  He is Nate So? So What?!

Austen Medek was raised in urban Columbus, where as a child, he soon discovered that he could always express his emotions through music.  Growing up, he was always taught to never let go of your dreams despite your circumstances.  He proudly comes from generations of musical talent.  Austen and Nate grew up as childhood friends and their close connection lead to the two to form a duo.  He is now the producer for Real Em In and has the ability to produce the sounds of today's mainstream music and the sounds of the underground.  He is no doubt the beat the Real Em In moves to.

Chad Blackburn, born November 17th 1983 in Columbus OH-IO, is an original founding member of Real Em In LTD.  Chad is about giving back to the community through music and sharing his experience with listeners and fans.  His lyrics are original and complex, and he thrives on getting better at his craft on a daily basis.  He believes that providing an outlet for today's youth is important, because any kid that grows up going through hard times can relate to the music of others who went through the same struggles.  He has many influences that have made his drive and talent what it is today, but the biggest one is the people inside the camp of Real Em In.  Family over everything!

Joshua Obert, born December 07, 1985, is the newest member of Real Em In LTD.  Growing up, Joshs talents were always directed towards music and playing the guitar.  Originally stemming from country music, Joshs desire soon turned to rock n roll.  In high school, he co-formed his previous band, A Shore Scenic Romance, and went on to tour and play throughout Ohio and its surrounding states; all while releasing the groups debut album.  During his time touring, he feels he has discovered what it takes to make it in this industry; time, dedication, love for the creation of music, your ideas and your band mates.  His ability to span all genres of music and dedication to his craft shows in his writing and performance.  He is an integral part in the development and relevance of Real Em In both live and business wise.
