At the age of 6, be began to travel around the world as a military brat. The military influence has had a major impact on both his music and entrepreneurial explorations. Tyrone has been exposed to all types of people from various backgrounds and cultures that have widened his perspective of the world, but has also given him deep pride in his hometown. A combination of being a military brat, college experience/knowledge, and a different perspective of the world makes Tyrone unlike any other artist or entrepreneur.

He also has affiliations with other prominent individuals in Indianapolis who are working together in an organization called “The Spot Headquarters”.

Collaborating with other influential individuals/businesses in the city has also allowed Tyrone to venture into new business deals that are not only expanding his brand name but also giving back to the community.
Lucky “The Promo King” Smith (Sales & Marketing)
Starting in this business at a very young age, Lucky had first taken his chances on being an artist but a few setbacks took him away from the music. Returning in 1995, he started a company with family called “La Jit Promotions” and later parted ways with the company after 2 years. In 1997, he formed his own company called “JUS Promotions” in which he helped start the careers of some the biggest selling artist and labels to date. To his credits would be Rap-A-Lot, No Limit, Swisha House, Trill Ent. and artists like Twista, Boosie, Plies, and Master P to name a few.

He later started a record pool called “Mixed Up”, before switching it to a 64 DJ coalition called “The Heat Spinner DJs” in 2005.
In 2006 & 2007 he teamed up with a few individuals to help jump start several different magazines and in 2008, did several events to help jumpstart artist careers like the “Indiana Idol” and The “Midwest Music Convention”. Not happy with the vision of the magazines he was working with, he partnered with Brightwood Entertainment and started Twenty4seven Magazine in 2009. With 15 years in the business, he has done everything from promotions, marketing, consulting, management, booking, and print, to advising and coordinating some of the top events in his field.
