Born on October 1st in Englewood “Southside” Chicago, Eric Johnson also known as the artist Syck Flow was born to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. With a small role at an early age in the movie "Chasers" and opening for artist such as: Cash Money, T.I., and Mr Biggs he was motivated to make his mark for himself. By being humble and always in the studio he was able to work on his craft and learn about the business. After being officially given the name because of his unique rhythmic flow, Syck spent a lot of time in the dirty south. (South Carolina) that is, up top in Connecticut and in the mid-west Chicago. His style is a reflection of the three places he once called home. Now a days, the studio is his home as he is formulating a collection of songs that will best introduce and in some cases re-introduce him to today's music scene.
What makes him so exceptional? He is not like other artists in the game, his flow is versatile, and unique. He can flow on any beat or tempo. Fast or slow as well as perform on any music industry genre. At his young age and hardworking background, he is looking to be around for a while definitely making a permanent mark in this industry. The album "Single Parenting" was just released and his follow up "Part of Me" will be available soon. With all that has been said, get ready for Syck Flow!
When it comes to making her mark in a male dominated industry, Bonnie Stone has no problem leaving the crowd speechless when she touches the mic. “Undisputed raw talent”, and “effortless flow” are just a few of the things being said when people hear Ms. Stone.
Being inspired by a spectrum of artists ranging from KRS-1, Salt-n- Pepa and Notorious B.I.G., She. began exploring the music scenes of Boston during her college years. During this time she stepped on stage for the first time at the legendary Middle East in Cambridge, MA. Bonnie’s freestyle of the Nas’ hit “Made You Look” was the first spark that would ignite the flame within Ms. Stone.
From there she continued to plan rap battles and throw hip hop events around the city while still performing. This led to Ms. Stone opening up for hip hop artists such as Method Man, 112 and Cormega. The buzz about Bonnie Stone grew leading her to a meeting at Def Jam with the legendary Clark Kent. However just as this fire began to ignite, tribulations became some challenges. A fallout with her manager led to disappointment and while singles such as “She’s Fresh” and “Anything” became fan favorites, her album “More than a Lady” was never released.
However after a long hiatus, the fire has been reignited and now Bonnie Stone has returned with new heat. She has returned to the music scene ten toes down with hot new singles “Creamy” and “Stadium Status”. Check out all her music out on all streaming platforms.

Educated , Hungry, talented artist from a city that doesn’t get its recognition. I’ve been making music for 7 years now and a little extra light could never hurt. I work everyday at my craft and try and put my best foot forward in all situations. I believe timing is key and everything happens for a reason. Consistency and work ethic are going to be the reasons my music gets heard. I am not a one song or one hit wonder. I am aiming for longevity and to become a household name eventually based on the time and effort I put into my business. I am heavily influenced by Fabolous, Jadakiss , Dave East , method man, The Lox and many more. Their style of music always resonated with me. In the seven years that I have been making music. I released 6 projects and well over 40 singles and features all across my city and furthermore. I’ve performed more than twenty times at college events or open mic events. I am always looking for outings or places where hip hop lives so I can get my foot in the door. A willingness to listen and learn to are major in my pursuit of success. I understand that your never the smartest in a room so being able to listen and learn is how I believe you can get to the next level. Also confidence. If your not going to believe in yourself, how can you expect other people to. I put my heart into my craft, so when it come time to explain it, I am motivated and driven because it’s something I believe and worked hard at.
