Recently his schedule has been full working with "New Fame" on musical philanthropic efforts, "BKWildlife" on socially conscious artist endeavors, collaborating with numerous indie and mainstream artists as both musician/actor, being a father and starting his own lifestyle and clothing brand "Harlem River Yacht Club."
Crimdella
Crimdella
Harlem. Her streets paved in the gold of black thought, poetry, song, and struggle. Crimdella is Harlem, but his name rings out city-wide. Founding member of Black God Pantheon, 'Crim, youngest son of revered Activist Elombe Brath is true to his roots, and to the roots of his neighborhood. An uptown icon in the making.

Crimdella's latest album, the self-released Bury Me In Gold is a testament to the emcee's skill, and Harlem's rich African American identity. Uptown's legacy, it's juke joint past, its street wisdom, and unapologetic pro-black heritage all flourish in Crimdella. The album exudes the brash playfulness, and razor wit of the great Harlem rappers before him, with a sound that is modern, but undeniably New York.

The record's lead single, Extra has garnered over 20k video streams with minimal industry support. A magnetism, steeped in Harlem swagger, black pride, and he pours this charisma effortlessly into his music. He is the sound of Black youth across Harlem and America, energized by recent events, and the celebration of life that endures.

A staple on the live circuit, Crimdella has opened for Nas, Wale, Siimba Liives Long and has performed alongside fellow up and coming MC Jadon Woodard. No stranger to New York's indie scene, and appears regularly at NYC venues including Irving Plaza, Pianos, Cake Shop, and Brooklyn music halls like Paper Box. His shows often see the emcee cloaked in a crowd eagerly reciting his lyrics along with him, an omen of what's to come.
Gloves
Gloves
Gloves is made up of William Wilcox (Guitar/Vocals) Tess Walker (Keys/Vocals) Gregory Gonzalez (Bass/Vocals) and Jon DiFiore (Drums). Gloves was formed during a blizzard in early 2015 when Will & Tess were reminiscing about waiting with their fingers on the record button taping 90s radio rock onto mix tapes in their youth when they saw a clearly intoxicated Gonzalez smoking what may have been a cigarette after sex stumble into oncoming traffic. The two rushed to push him out of the way of a careening green taxi landing in a snow bank. At that moment good samaritan Jon DiFiore stopped his car to make sure they were ok. The four agreed the best thing to do would be to go to a local saloon to have a drink and shake the evening off. It was then they realized they were all musicians and decided to form a band. Tess lamented about how hard it was to come up with a band name and a passing patron heard her and drunkenly slurred “why don’t you just call it gloves”. And Gloves was born...
