Reigning from the small town of Tyner, NC, John McCraig Overton, Delmonte Jordan, and Antonio Copeland not only share a love for music, but they also share a bond that links them more than music ever could. Although John and Delmonte were born on the same day and one hour apart, John is Delmonte's uncle. Virtually raised as brothers, they would later meet Antonio at a restaurant where they all worked. They went from flipping burgers to flipping beats and rhymes and that would eventually become life for these three gentlemen. Speaking of life, these young men faced the typical trials and tribulations that most youth do growing up in North Carolina but their passion for sports, video games, and girls kept them on the right path. They understood at a young age that getting money was their main objective and they wanted to get it through something the invoked passion in the people around them and not fear. Since that point, Da Gwop Krew has been on a relentless mission to get that gwop.

Art is the author of Scammed: 3 Steps to Help Your Elder Parents and Yourself, and has also been a speaker on elderly fraud prevention and recovery at both the state and national level. He has spoken for 4 years in a row at the Missouri National Association of Social Workers symposium, and he recently presented at the national conferences for the National Association of Social Workers in Washington, DC, and Cambridge Financial Research in Scottsdale, AZ. He has trained on topics related to elderly fraud recovery and prevention to professional groups and senior organizations, and has consulted with scam victims’ families locally and nationally. Drawing on his own experience helping his 83 year old stepfather recover from a series of devastating scams, and his clinical skills as a practicing therapist, gives him a unique perspective on this growing problem.
