Holla'back Records, Ent. & Mgt. South is an Independent Record label and Management Company which began releasing hit records and managing artists/photographers/models in 1998.
Its first EP release, Holla'back Presents Trajik & the Black Casba, was introduced to critical acclaim by numerous venues: including the start up distribution company The Orchard: which is now one of the nation's largest Internet Distributors. Several tracks on our first critically acclaimed release "Holla'back presents TRAJIK and the Black Casba" introduced the world to now up and rising superstar Apex-Tech, producer of 50 Cent's hip hop smash hit "I Get Money." In addition, our first release featured several tracks produced by super producer Elijah Wells, producer and founder of the hit R&B sensations Nina Sky, platinum selling artist Sean Paul and others. Super producer Kerry "Krucial" Brothers" of the multi-platinum, superstar publishing company "Krucial-Keys" (Alicia Keys' co-publisher on several projects) acted as a consultant for Holla'back Records on this release. Krucial offered to remix his favorite track "Q&A" for Trajik. However, due to scheduling conflicts, this project never materialized. Trajik & Kevlar then released several other singles Including "Make It Hot, Rock Thru It, Cash & Brothas." Additionally: Kieon/KTG , formerly of Trajik, has worked with rap superstar Cam'ron as Ma$e's body double in his hit music video "Horse & Carraige" and was featured on MTV Jamz. Holla'back's roster of future superstars also included KYEE & FUCHURE. Kyee was featured in a skit featured on NBC'S Conan O'brien show along with Trajik and other Holla'back talent. Fuchure was featured in a print ad for Ebony magazine with the late, great ,Esther Rolle of Good Times and in various other print ads including for CVS Pharmacy. Fuchure also successfully auditioned for a kid's group; a project previously considered by employees of super producer and multiplatinum artist Wyclef Jean's company. Kevlar, formerly of Holla'back Records' The Black Casba, also wrote the hit song "Crime Side" for the pilot of the hit Television pilot "Street Time" which had a limited run on HBO. In 2009, JABAR..the hottest new Teen sensations since Chris Brown..was introduced to the world. Jabar has been performing throughout the ATL including a breathtaking concert at the Sweet Auburn Fest. Look out all you teen age, wannabe R&B singers...JABAR has arrived! JABAR IS NOW PERFORMING UNDER THE STAGE NAME KA$H DRACO.
Trajik's single, featured on our first EP release "Holla back" was the subject of a copyright infringement lawsuit in 2003 and was featured on Celebrity Justice, MTV news and numerous internet sites and radio stations. This suit alleged that international superstars and platinum selling- rapper/super producers Fabolous /the Neptunes' platinum selling single Young'N (Holla back), released in 2001, was derived from our first release's hit single "Holla'back (released in 1999) .
Details of this Case in addition to information regarding the Documentary, InJustice for All...Summary MisJudgment can be found on our Calendar Page and is also documented in our News Journal.
The links in the Journal include the Expert Report documenting the fact that similarities occur within " 50% of the primary elements" of these songs. This document also discussed the "'MUSICAL FINGERPRINT'" which is indicative of copying. Also, the 2 1/2 pages of documented lyrical/musical similarities are shown which detail all the similarities that appear in only these 2 out of over 50 songs with the word "holla back" in them; all of which were' stipulated during deposition testimony by both Experts; ours and theirs). Despite these similarities, our case was, we believe, ILLEGALLY DISMISSED without giving us our Seventh Amendment right to a jury trial of our peers! On the cusp of a stunning, disappointing and frustrating fight within the judicial system, Holla'back returns; broken in spirit but determined to fight regardless as to what the emotional effect will be...this Injustice must be addressed!
Remember, we are HitMakers..Not HitTakers!...If you heard a Hot Track it's..Holla'back!
