HipHopFriends (HHF) with The E&J Brothaz are "BUILDING A BIGGER BRAND" Hailing from the Big Apple, NEW YORK, and representing the 11 square mile town in Long Island called ELMONT, home of the "Belmont Stakes" thoroughbred races, comes the winning independent label/ artists and brand HipHopFriends (HHF). HipHopFriends is the brainchild of two siblings from the same mother and father, Feygens "ChuckieBigBux" Saint-Joy Jr. the youngest and HHF CEO and Erick "DirtE Dread" Saint-Joy Director of Operations and Marketing. They're also the labels flagship recording artists also known as The E&J Brothaz. The E&J moniker comes from Erick and Junior, their initials in their names. If you were to ask around the music industry today what HipHopFriends does, the answer you'll get is ."Everything!" HHF is truly a fully independent imprint and run all aspects of their career, not only as owners but as artists as well. From recording, artists development, marketing, promotions, distribution, management, bookings and even owning their own award winning web radio station called HipHopFriendsOnline, winner of the 2009 SEA (Southern Entertainment Award) for "Best Internet/ Satellite Radio". They're the trendsetters for the new generation of artists and indie labels today to follow suit. HipHopFriends and the E&J Brothaz have releases chart topping songs over the years like "Jump Aboard", "Quest Seeker", "Stand Clear", "Jack of All Trades" and "Can You Hear Me?". The E&J Brothaz also released several full length LPs as well. Their first album in 2004 "Vatos: A Family Affair" sold fairly well in mom and pop shops across the country and internationally. DirtE Dread and ChuckieBigBux second effort in 2006 "Built on Solid Foundation" soon became an underground classic. Its buzz had lead to the original mix albums, not mix tapes, with some of the industries biggest DJ's, DJ Bigga Rankin and DJ Smallz a.k.a "Mr. Southern Smoke" both from Florida. Their first of the mix album series with DJ Bigga Rankin was entitled "We Building A BIGGA Brand". That mix album got enthusiastic reviews in the streets and was innovative at the same time. HipHopFriends was credited for being the first to distribute an album on custom made USB hard drives. DJ Bigga Rankin thus awarded HipHopFriends with his coveted "Ghetto Diamond Award" in the "Go Gettaz" category for their ultimate hustle and steadfastness to the game. They're the only New Yorkers to win this Southern award to date. Their next release with Fear Factor Music's DJ Smallz took a conceptual approach to making mix tapes. The mix album theme was taken from a WWII prospective. HipHopFriends' DirtE Dread and ChuckieBigBux played as war Generals while skits and songs were positioned like war strategies, in relation to the state of the current music industry. The title was "Operation Overlord" and was reminiscent to the most infamous invasion on the beaches of Normandy. The subtitled was "HHF D-DAY: The Invasion of the Music Industry". HHF was pioneering again by distributing custom 'Bullet' shaped USB Drives with dog tags and the CD also feature the first ever 3D animated cover. HipHopFriends avant-garde paid off with their fans and wowed their industry peers. The two mix albums collective were distributed physically and downloaded digitally to over 20,000 plus HipHopFriends fans across the country. In the last two years HipHopFriends has also toured extensively in club venues, colleges and universities, conferences and music festivals across the US. HHF performed for well over 2 million Hip Hop fans. Their self promoted tours have even been sponsored by corporations and institutions such as IAR (Institute of Audio Research), Sam Ash Music, Azzur Denim, Lyrical Legends and Royal Blunts just to name a few. HHF and The E&J Brothaz also have an award winning music video catalog that they filmed themselves. Theses visual accolades include The Gold Aurora Award, The Communicators Award and The Platinum AVA (Audio/Visual Award) for music video production, concept, cinematography and editing. Today, HipHopFriends focus is on their successful Commercial Radio hit single called "Private Party" feat. The E&J Brothaz and GiftRAP. The record was produced by a Santa Barbara California up-coming producer named GiftRAP. The reason for choosing a production so far from home is that the record touches the East and West coast. With East Coast lyricism, West Coast vibes and a Southern draw, it happens to works in multiply markets as it meets in the middle. Currently the record has been added to well over five dozen Commercial Radio Stations, hundreds of Internet sites and many other International outlets and sources. It is also available on iTunes. With this hit record, HipHopFriends has garnered a listening audience of over 3.5 Million listeners and counting. HipHopFriends in conjunction with The E&J Brothaz, label, artistry and brand is constantly growing with quality music, innovative products, corporate partnerships and guerilla marketing tactics. As the recurring saying goes "Major without A Major Deal", HipHopFriends are truly leaders in the independent music scene. Keep your ears tuned and an eye open for these guys. HHF followers are everywhere and their always next to you like your friendly neighbors.
