Hip Hop Weekly
Never before has the Hip Hop community been able to find all of their needs within the music of one artist, or even in one label, but that's all changing now and that change is coming not from Cali, not from NYC, not from ATL, Miami or Houston! It's coming from Motor City USA! And, the man standing on top of this new musical empire goes by the name of Dawgface Calderon. The empire? Stronghold Records, LLC. Dawgface, who also goes by the moniker "Face TheNation" is back up by some of the most talented artists in a city that produced some of the most notorious "Real" life Gangster's that this country has ever seen starting with the super talented PMG Skeeno. Then comes Kyng Perfect, Mack Millie, Navy Cash (Blue Money) and the big man himself Waun$Money. 2013 will be a good year in Hip Hop based on what's coming out of the D! Be on the lookout for the crew project, "CHoPpA GaNg (Vol. 1)" [Spring 2k13]
