Edwin “Crazy Eddie” Myles. His mark on Music is a story to be told with a history as remarkable as Hip Hop itself. Born in New Orleans, LA., but moved to Brooklyn, NY before his first birthday and then to the historical Astoria Projects in Queen, NY. It was in Queens that Eddie was introduced to the likes of Hip Hop historians such as The Disco Twins, The Disco Brothers and Eric B and Rakim. In 1986 after “Beat Street” hit the big screen and “New York City Break Dancers” performed at the inauguration of President Ronald Reagan, Eddie was facing obstacles in illiteracy and drugs and traded in New York’s troublesome streets for his southern roots in New Orleans. “Some of my brothers ended up getting killed or doing 40 to life,” recalls Eddie, and that’s not the future he saw for himself. His first southern gig was as a sales rep for M.A.P.S. (Marketing Advertising Promotions and Sales), servicing commercials for local companies. Edwin is the Founder/CEO of Jockey Trade Association. If you are a music artist or know of someone, please tune in for a great opportunity.
