"ATLANTA UNDERGROUND HIP-HOP SENSATION TO HEADLINE"

ATLANTA (GA) – Atlanta’s own underground hip-hop sensation Supreme has been selected as one of the headlining acts for the 2008 Atlantis Music Conference. Atlantis (www.atlantismusic.com) will take place from Sept. 17 – 20 and for Supreme, this opportunity is just what he has been waiting for!
“WOW! I’m happy beyond words for this opportunity to show my talent and gain some valuable exposure,” he said enthusiastically soon after getting the news from his manager. “I’m thankful that Atlantis chose me as one of their acts for the conference. I can’t wait to do my thing!”
Atlanta native Supreme, a.k.a. Eatavius Ferguson, has been grinding the local underground scene for more than a decade and has represented at virtually every open-mic event you could name. He has achieved nominal success with his former group HogTyed as an opening act for the Roc-A-Fella camp in 2003 at the Georgia World Congress Center. They also created a strong “cyber buzz” with their widely circulated street-certified debut CD We Been Here in 2005 and the hit single So Fly later that year. In 2006, he was invited to host an AM radio show where listeners experienced the depth of his infectious personality . Soon afterwards, the show broke into cyberspace on the World Wide Web and Supreme was blessed with his own show called Supreme Saturdays, which he produces every Saturday night from 6 PM to 10 PM on www.atlmovementradio.com.
Now a solo artists and radio personality, Supreme has high hopes for his debut album due out in Fall 2008 and hopes that Atlantis will give him the push he needs!
“Music conferences like Atlantis have given lots of up-and-coming performers and artists like me the break they needed to get to that next level,” said Supreme.

"'Operation: Supreme Reigns' A 2-0-0-8 Hustler's Chronicles"

At such a critical time in the life (and possible death) of Hip Hop, the pulse of such a magnanimous entity rests in the hands of some of today’s most known and influential icons like Jay-Z, Diddy, and Kanye West. However, in order for Hip Hop to not be truly dead, it will require lyrical first-aid from both the hip hop community’s most known as well as the unknowns. One of the most known unknowns is a young artist born and bred full of southern hospitality. He’s been called ‘The New Kid on the Block’, ‘T.C.’, but all his fans and soon the rest of the world will speak the name ‘Supreme’. In this industry where local nobodies can instantly jettison to stardom, Supreme represents through his music the caliber of artist who will see successes similar to those of Erik B & Rakim, Nas, and Snoop Dogg.
As an artist, Supreme brings to the forefront a strong militia of skills. His repertoire of lyrical weaponry allows him much room to rap about many subjects. Supreme exhibits this innate ability of verbal stacking on his song ‘How It Addz Up’. For Supreme, this song represents a tumultuous time in his childhood where he grew up in a single-parent household. He explains in a deeply heartfelt way what it was like not only to grow up with resentment towards his father for abandoning him, his sister, and his mother. It also reflects on how he decided to forgive his father and how he made a solemn vow to himself that he would always be the father he never had. The smootheness of the beat blended flawlessly with precise basslines will touch everyone who listens to it and will also be the very music that you can relate to.
‘I’m Grindin’ reveals a more gritty, more street-talented face of Supreme that he developed over the years of growing up in various parts of the rougher side of Atlanta, Ga. On this song, the artist paints a vivid portrait of the everyday hustler; the guy that gets out there and grinds it out in order to make some major paper someday. This song exemplifies the day-in-day-out hustle of working hard, and living big after you’ve gained success from all your hard work. Supreme further exhibits his skills as an artist as well as his more thoughtful side in the song 'The Luv I Have'. This song is one strictly for the ladies; more particularly the ladies in his life: His sister, his wife, and of course his mother; not to mention all the beautiful black ladies that are rising up in life doing successful things. 'The Luv I Have' yet again is an amazing song with phenomenal vocals and an explosive track engineered straight out of the lab of J-Boogie of Mondstar Productions. This track will without a doubt get the ladies excited and emotional all at the same time.
In a society full of troubled teens, abusive relationships, and violence, Supreme can give the hip hop community much relief. Supreme will bring to hip hop/rap that certain something it’s been missing for a while; a conscience. With his latest project he will breathe new life into the spirit of Hip Hop music. For more information on Supreme, check him out every Saturday night from 6pm-10pm on ATLanta Movement Radio when he is hosting ‘Supreme Saturdays’, one of the hottest shows for independent artists and unsigned artist.

Bio

It’s no secret that the south is a hotbed of hip-hop talent but in the case of Eatavius Ferguson a.k.a. Supreme, he is on his way to becoming a messiah in the new hip-hop mecca known as the ATL!
With a style he describes as “supreme” Ferguson has been nurturing a love affair with music since he was a percussionist in his sixth-grade band at Martin Luther King middle school in 1990. Being in the band fueled his desire to make music and when he heard his cousin – Sand Grady – was rapping he began to play around with writing his own lyrics. Then in 1993 when he heard 8Ball & MJG for the first time, Ferguson’s musical love affair was elevated to the realm of hip-hop along with his dreams of making it in the rap game.
It didn’t take long for him to team up with his cousin Grady and start developing his producer and rapping skills. But, it wasn’t until a fateful night at a local club that he was bit by the performing bug in his first live performance that got him hooked on hip-hop.
“I performed my first song at the Silver Fox in Bankhead,” he recalled. “It must have been in 1996. After that, I just knew that was what I wanted to do.”
From there, it was a wrap; Supreme was born and the Atlanta underground music scene was under assault. Supreme recalls performing at bowling allies, skating rings, public parks and any open-mic he could find because he loved it so much. When he wasn’t performing, he was cranking out the beats and tracks. Soon he picked up a couple of artist for hire contracts with 404 Music and Rock Me Right productions where he was paid to submit what he called “skeleton tracks,” which more established producers would alter to create tracks for their artists. This experience validated his promise as a burgeoning producer especially since Tony Mercedes and Reggie Rock of LaFace Records – two leading producers at the time – accepted most of his tracks. By this time, Supreme was a junior in high school and had put the band behind him to pursue his music career full time while working.
Around the late ‘90s into the 2000s, Supreme picked up a clique who formed a group called HogTyed that was bringing the fire and burning up the underground scene under the production team Triple O out of Garry Indiana. He credits them with giving the group their first real chance to show their skills after they were noticed while entertaining passengers on the subway in Atlanta. With Triple O’s Midwest style and that signature ATL swagger, audiences had trouble believing that the group was all Atlanta natives – which was a good thing. The exposure generated through their alliances with local club promoters and local fans led to opening credits where they opened for Roc-A-Fella in 2003 at the Georgia International Convention Center.
Although the group has been on hiatus for a couple of years, they produced a compilation CD in 2005 titled We Been Here that is still widely circulated on the internet and throughout the Southeast. The HogTyed clique also released the single So Fly that same year. In March of 2006, Supreme was invited to host a radio show which broadcasted on a local AM station. The show aired every Friday night from 10 pm to Midnight and was produced by ATLanta Movement Radio. The show was entitled Movement Radio. Shortly after Movement Radio, ATLanta Movement Radio left the local AM ‘circuit’ to infiltrate the World Wide Web. Now, in its second straight year, Supreme has blessed audiences with his personality and style and truly placed his signature on cyberspace as the host of the show called Supreme Saturdays.
Now, as a solo artist, Supreme is busy working on his debut CD and being a husband and father to his three boys (9, 4, and 2-years-old) who he says are blessings that keep him grounded within his musical pursuits. Still, his dreams sour towards one day sitting at a boardroom table interviewing the next hot artists for his own label. He says he also aspires to work with T-Pain, Andre 3000 and Rick Ross, who all represent the southern hip-hop that helped inspire his dreams. Supreme is also scheduled as a featured artist at the 2008 Atlantis Music Conference (Sept. 17-20) in Atlanta where he will be ripping the mic at the Apache Café and showing why his skills are SUPREME!
