Pick up your very own issue of Billboard at Borders or B&N for $6.99, and go right to pg. 63 for the Now Hear This Section. Thank you to all of my peoples that called and emailed with lots of love and encouragement regarding the feature.
Highlight response from the article: My son, who’s eyes nearly popped from his head when we visited Borders and I opened the magazine revealing the 6″ high picture of his dad. “That’s YOU! How did you get in there dad!!?” “Shhweeet!!!”

By the way, it was a great issue to be in as there are about 20 pages celebrating and honoring Quincy Jones’ 75 birthday, so it’s definitely a special issue.

Peace yall and thanks again!!
Media Music for the connect! Gregg Mann for the photo! Katie @ Billboard for the ears to believe!
Helmser, thanks for the call!!

His approach in each endeavor is soundly unique, high quality and signature in presentation, having found his course as a creator early in life.

With his artistic ability he also began growing a client base and reputation for customized hats and clothes as well as logo design by hand, long before learning graphics in college. His creativity, craftsmanship and passion to inspire people are what drives his spirit of entrepreneurship. From having run his own stationery boutique and art gallery shared with his wife; touring nationally and internationally as a hip hop artist, Edreys is exceptionally diverse with his avenues of expression, including the fine craft of jewelry making, passed down from his father and master craftsman. Edreys is most recently recognized locally for his contribution as an artist on the Freedom Wall which features 28 civil rights dignitaries, 7 of which he painted with his unique style and use of line. “Creativity is my neighbor, I live by it,” says Edreys.
