Combine the edgy Emaza (19), the zealous Znuie (17) and the sultry Saiyr (21), and you’ll have the makings of the Ceraadi Sisters. The three sisters who left their hometown in Iowa in 2008, and moved to South Central Los Angeles to pursue their star-studded dreams are making their voices heard in the music world.
Growing up in a household filled with the music of Whitney Houston, Prince, Usher and other R&B hit-makers, one can say music is engrained into their DNA. Independently pushing their brand, Ceraadi successfully released their first single “Favorite Song” in 2015, followed by their fun and upbeat single “That’s Bae” in 2016.
Setting the bar high for 2017 and beyond, Ceraadi has combined their talents with those of 3x Grammy-Nominated producer and songwriter Dem Jointz, by joining the roster of his new production company U Made Us What We Are.

Dubbed the “TLC of the West”, Ceraadi’s fan base continues to grow at a rapid rate, and shows no sign of slowing down.
A self-proclaimed product of his past, rapper Sean Kingston’s history helps describe his sound. Born in Miami, Florida, then raised in Kingston, Jamaica from the age of six, he mixed more than a little dancehall and reggae into his hip-hop. The hard lyrics come from a hard life, which included incarceration, homelessness, and growing up a lot faster than he should have. His young parents didn’t play teen pop or teen rap while he was being raised, so he absorbed the adult lyrics of Buju Banton, Ice Cube, and Rakim. He also lived the lyrics and landed a breaking-and-entering charge at age 11.
Twenty-one days in jail, boot camp, and living in a car while his mother was incarcerated on an identity fraud rap all followed. None of it swayed the youth against hustling; it just pointed him in a different, more lucrative direction. Taking his ability to write rhymes and hooks, he started working Miami’s talent show and showcase circuit hard, eventually sharing the stage with Pitbull, Ludacris, and Trick Daddy. Producer Jonathan “J.R.” Rotem (Britney Spears, 50 Cent, Rihanna) caught his demo and signed the young rapper to his Beluga Heights record label right before the major-label bidding wars were to begin.
The Sony imprint Epic won and introduced their new artist in the spring of 2007 with the single “Colors 2007,” featuring the Game and Rick Ross. Although he sounded much older, Kingston was only 16 years old when the track landed. With his second single, “Beautiful Girls,” he took a sample of Ben E. King’s “Stand by Me” and twisted it into a huge hit. This more polished, smoother, and less hardcore stance suited the singer and figured heavily into his self-titled debut full-length. His sophomore release, Tomorrow, arrived in 2009 and featured the singles “Fire Burning,” “Face Drop,” and “My Girlfriend.” In 2013 the single “Letting Go (Dutty Love),” with special guest Nicki Minaj, appeared, along with his third album, Back 2 Life. ~ David Jeffries
