Beginning in the early days of her youth, Dina Rae indulged in the melodic harmonies of soul music crooners and songstresses. As music evolved and the influx of rap and hip-hop permeated the airwaves Dina Rae recognized the infinite possibilities in blending the two genres. She immediately gravitated toward the deep drum beats and lyrical poetry of emcees and soon found herself singing alongside various rappers in unlikely collaborations. Shying away from methodical combinations, Dina Rae embraces an innovative, edgy and sexy style as she laces soulful R&B melodies over intense rap and hip-hop tracks. Shortly after making a splash on Eminem’s first album The Slim Shady LP with the club hit “Cum on Everybody,” Eminem knew he wanted her on his next album. “Dina Rae is the only artist we’ve ever worked with where we’d give her a track – no lyrics, no melody – and she’d come back a day later with an amazing piece of music,” says producer Mark Bass. After Eminem’s sophomore album The Marshall Mathers LP was being played like wildfire, and “Drug Ballad” – a hit on which she’s featured charted on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks despite not ever being released as a single, Dina Rae began to attract more attention. Soon afterwards, Eminem called her back for D12’s Devil’s Night and his latest release The Eminem Show , where she is featured on the single “Superman.” Following the formula of choice, Dina Rae appears on track 13 on all four multi-platinum selling albums.

Imagine the presence of KRS One; the cadence of Rakim; the uncanny knack of story telling and graphic visualizations of Kool G Rap; the prowess and authority of Chuck D; the street knowledge of Ice Cube and the prophetical word-wizardry of Nas mashed up with a little Big Pun combined in one man – You get deep, raw, visual, unapologetic rap with a message. This is who Armageddon is.

Jersey City rapper Randy Nichols, better known as Ransom, was originally born in Brooklyn, NY in September 1980. His father’s slaying and mother’s serious illness forced Nichols to stay in foster care a few years, but he and his mother eventually relocated to Jersey City when he was about eight years old. A lifestyle of selling drugs, which landed him in and out of jail as a teen, ensued; however, the young rapper wanted out. In 2000, he and his friends put up money to buy a recording studio, which initiated Nichols’ rap career under the moniker Ransom. Not long afterwards, he teamed up with fellow rapper Hitchcock to form the A-Team. Known for their Hardhood Classics street albums, the two became staples on the mixtape circuit in New Jersey, but barely dented the scene in neighboring New York. After a deal with Def Jam didn’t pan out, the two went their separate ways around 2006. Ransom did not lose much momentum, constantly appearing on DJ Clue mixtapes as well as shelling out his own, including the Best in the City volumes and Ransom Note.
