Something that drives and forces people out of their comfort zones into unfamiliar territories. Opportunity is what sent two MCs from their familiar stomping grounds of Ohio to Atlanta in search of hip-hop success. Opportunity is what brought Jermiside and L-Marr together.
Jermiside began carving out a niche for himself in 2003 with self-produced and self released projects that received favorable reviews both locally, nationally and also sparked the interest of various overseas entities. As a part of the Lessondary Crew, which consists of Che Grand, Tanya Morgan, Elucid, Spec Boogie, A Brother Named George and others, Jermiside has made a name for himself with his stellar guest appearances. He has appeared on tracks alongside artists such as Tanya Morgan, Ill Poetic, Soulstice, Theory Hazit, Reef the Lost Cause and a number of other underground artists.
L-Marr hails from Dayton, Ohio where he began his career performing at his alma mater, Wittenberg University and various colleges while still pursuing his degree in Political Science and Sociology. Known for his exhilarating live performances, he has shared the stage with such national acts as; BluePrint, 3-6 Mafia, State Radio, and R&B singer Monica, among others. With a penchant for catchy hooks and prolific songwriting, he has also worked creatively with artists like; Da Alliance, Ill Poetic, Spree Wilson, and Smalleyez.
Moving in mutual circles, it was only natural that these two hard-working Ohio MCs would meet in Atlanta and forge a bond. After jointly appearing on various songs, they began working on music that would eventually become the "God Bless the Child" EP. This project blends their unique brand of lyricism with dope beats and memorable hooks to create a truly powerful album. So take the opportunity to enjoy two MCs looking to change the world through great music...God Bless the Child...
