"Wake Up, Rems Is Here!"

So you want a reason go get out of bed in the morning? Well you’ve found at least one with the opportunity to wake to the voice of an artist with anger, yet with answers. A fresh, raw, unapologetic voice of controversy, who lives what he speaks: a full life, all day, everyday. Yup, it’s time for a new awakening, better yet – The Great Awakening. Welcome to the sound booth of Rems.

Rems a Rapping, Energetic, Man of Soul is all about taking hip hop to the heart of what’s real. Breakin’ up and makin’ up, handlin’ one’s business, gaining and giving much respect to his people, his women, his culture and of course to represent the Southern take over of the Hip Hop Rap Game. He’s bringing a new twist of thought provoking lyrics that catch you off guard, but let’s you stop and think. It resounds in his hit “What’s so wrong?” He places much honor to a woman, that many may want to put aside, but he won’t have it, this is his woman, his loyal fan, who stuck with him through everything from fist fights to hard times. The bottom line is don’t judge what you don’t know, and then it’s up to you to try to figure out “What’s so wrong with these people loving each other the way they do?” Trust me you won’t walk away from it without having something to talk about; when you think about it, isn’t that the core of Hip-Hop, to let us think about our own social existence.

Now don’t get it twisted he doesn’t keep it that deep, his club song will have you on your feet, having a good time, whether you’re up against the wall snapping your fingers, or getting out there and getting’ your groove on - “Rems Like to Party” is the hit that brings life to the body. This is one of those songs that brings the Party to the After Party. The kind of hit, that just when you thought it was time to go home, you find yourself heading to the bar for another glass of Hypnotic, or a chaser to go with that last glass of Cognac, or for the fellas, the nerve to ask that girl one more time to dance with you.

So where does this all come from and who is REMS anyway? Well he won’t tell you every just yet; but he will give you an inside scoop to his world. Born in West Palm Beach Florida, but groomed in Orlando, he always knew he wanted to be something greater than the stories he saw developing around him. This desire was strongly enforced at the age of 13, when he had to look at a representation of who he was to become, laying in a casket, in the body of his Father. It didn’t seem fair then and it certainly continues to influence him now, at 13 he had to ask who’s gonna take care of me, where am I going to end up without a role model? He knew then and there he had to take things seriously because he only gets one round.

So the great awakening is about giving life to his dreams as he’s seen in many of the artists he admires especially Jay-Z; “Jay-Z to me is about what’s real, and his song “All I need” is a major player in how I get my day started. I’m more than singing about money, clothes and ho’s….just like Jay-Z, I want to be about keeping the message in the music, not have the music so damn loud that you no longer know the message. I think that’s what frustrates me today in so many ways the message is getting watered down, and new artist are having a hard time getting air play because we’re about getting back to the roots of the reality of Hip-Hop.”

His fans can expect some great things from Rems in the future, and his fan based is already being established and they can’t wait. During a performance at University of South Florida the crowd cheered him on, not for encouragement, but truly because they wanted more. His concerts are truly alive with energy, a commanding voice, bringing some destructive and descriptive lyrics, and what’s so mesmerizing is to watch his body language on that stage, he will send the message of his songs without ever saying a word.

So who’s responsible for bringing his message to us, none other than TightGrip Media a record label and production company founded by Lionel "Semyhr" Barnes in 2003. With dreams of being a producer, Semyhr found that even more money could be made starting a record label, and with his beats, and the right artist he could catch a nice buzz around the area. Having gone through several uninspired artist, he finally met Rems, online, with one listen to his Writing My Life Away song, Semyhr was hooked on Rems’ realism and hard, perfectionate work ethic. A lot of the tracks on the album features beats by Semyhr, and Baby Grand, a young hot producer, that made the beat for "What's So Wrong". TightGrip knows a good thing when they see it, and they know Rems is one who will get stronger and better – a worthy investment no matter how you look at it. Yes, it’s time for The Great Awakening.
