Kid Rob is ready to go global. Born Robin Harris Jr., the native of Los Angeles, California began writing rhymes at age eight. Many expected him to carry the torch of his father the late great Robin Harris comic genius and creator of BeBe’s Kids and Pop’s in the movie House Party. Born six months after the death of his dad, Kid Rob would find a gift in storytelling while growing up. Growing up in the inner city, Kid Rob recalls different experiences that many youth in the inner city of Los Angeles, CA experience. Losing close friends to gang and street violence, as well as seeing friends become successful people within the community. At a young age, he transmitted his life and the lives of those around him in his music. Being able to see his brother play football at the University of Southern California when he was 7 gave him the opportunity to utilize sports to go to college. Though he has a way with words, Kid Rob comes from an athletic background who was a former Division 1 and Division 3 All-American & All-Conference Wide Receiver.
The creative talent began with inspirational pieces he would perform during the youth programs at church. He would later go on to write raps regarding social issues, love, and party tunes. During the filming of “We Don’t Die We Multiply, The Robin Harris Story”, Producer Topper Carew heard a version of “Everyday” a tribute to his dad and included the song in the movie soundtrack. Most recently, Kid Rob appeared on TVOne’s
Unsung Hollywood: Robin Harris Story that aired on March 5th, 2014. Amongst Rob and his family; Magic Johnson, Martin Lawrence, and Charlie Murphy made appearances on the episode sharing their great stories about the legendary comic.

JPlus (Jessie J. Andrews) taps into the heart and soul of hip-hop as a versatile MC, lyricist, and producer. His refreshingly silver-tongued creativity flows from a turbulent past, and serves as a call to change the social and economic inequity that saturates society.
A paragon of clashing brilliance with a crumbling society, “Tripolar” explores the three personas J has created to survive. ‘Jessie’ is a hopeful, intelligent young man who wants to have the same opportunity to succeed, regardless of color, creed or culture. ‘JPlus’ is entrepreneurial and confident—the “Urban King”—whose street-smarts allow him to escape the toils of the ghetto. ‘Muzzle Off’ is the third, the darkest, the most ruthless, the metabolite of societal churning: he is a hateful monster who stews in blame—blame towards a world that stole his humanity and forced a personal choice between poverty or violent crime.
But can you blame him? Growing up poor, Jessie had to visit homeless shelters, watch his mother get beat, and try to make sense of his father’s abusive tendencies and repeated incarcerations. Jessie started using music to break free, because death, both figurative and literal, was the only alternative. At the young age of 8, J began his grueling upward climb, memorizing Eminem verses and spitting rhymes with his childhood friend Sin-City.
At 26, JPlus has released seven albums, many self-produced, to include “Wasted Talent", “Force of Habit", “New Time Sake", “L.Y.R.I.C.S." just to name a few. no doubt earning himself a future honorary doctorate in English Composition. With a good set of ears, you’ll have no problem groovin’ to every track’s unique instrumentals, whether based in jazz, hardcore, R&B, or rock.
