Many people don't know everything I do when it comes to this music world. I wear a variety of hats. Of course I do parties, weddings, and the club scene, but I also have two up and coming artists I work with and DJ for. They both mirror the same passion I have for music, which is why we work so well together. We're still in January and it's already looking like a good year for both!!
With that being said, let me introduce you to one of my artist . . .
Authentic Hip-Hop, diverse style, unique delivery, and creative word play all describe recording artist YUSHA ASSAD. Born Joshua Blackwell, Yusha is a North Carolina native by way of Washington, DC, striving toward a future of success. Humbled by his roots, Yusha connects to the soul of his listeners while providing reflections of his life, love, business and religion.
Following the September 2013 release of With Great Care: "The Heart" and the December 2014 release of With Great Care: "The Struggle", the educator turned emcee kicked off 2015 with the latest installment of his With Great Care series, appropriately entitled "The Dream." The project was created in conjunction with DC's lengendary House Studios artist grant program, which allows a selective group of talented musicians to use their resources with no upfront costs. Equipped with some soulful instrumentation from Antionio "KC" Kearney (Produced for Lil Wayne, Drake etc.) as well as House Studio's in-house production team the "New album is a breath of fresh air in the overly saturated and gimmick filled genre we love."
Since the release of "The Dream", Yusha has been featured in prominent hip hop magazines and various media outlets including:
- JACKTHRILLER.COM & many more.
Performing at major music conferences including:
- SXSW in Austin, TX
- AC3 Music Festival
- Hampton University's Homecoming

Yusha recently opened for Scarface, The Game, and Devin The Dude and has showcased his talent in major cities such as New York, Atlanta, Chicago and many others.
