Quietly rising into the main stream like a storm coming down to rain on the people, comes a gifted and blessed Poet, MC, Lyricist, Wordsmith, B-Boy, Modern Day Warrior. Call him what you want, but there is definite meaning for this man to be behind the mic.

Artson was born and raised in the city of El Paso, Texas. Growing up in a border town surrounded by crime, high unemployment, and poverty, nothing came easy. In need of an outlet of self-expression and having a love for hip hop, and rap music, he began his mission. Artsons' love with Hip Hop started at a young age. He was first introduced to the culture in the early 80s B-Boying (break dancing) with his peers in the streets and for competition. Always changing with the times and a true student of Hip Hop, Artson is now a member of the world Famous Rock Steady Crew. He started writing poetry and rhymes (raps) at the age of 14 for the fun, local fame and self respect. Through the years with hard work and dedication his life has set a path for Artson to shine.

The Album "Save The World pt. 2," bends and twists beats in refreshing new directions. The music and sounds of "Save The World pt.2" not only has the energy of artists such as Floetry and Outkast but also has the new school edgy feel of Kanye West, Baby Bash, and Eminem. This album truly has a soul and life of its own. From raw, hip hop, to jazzy, soulful, melodic tracks Artson truly has something for everyone. With guest appearances by Tash of the Alkaholiks, The legendary Craig G, and Q -Unique formerly of the Arsonist “Save The World pt. 2” delivers an all star universal line up of artists ranging from the East to West Coast.

Craig G is a Queens Bridge native emcee, whose work is probably more recognised to the younger generation of hip-hop than the face behind the music. He has dropped such classics as “Shout” featuring Marley Marl, “The Symphony”, “Droppin Science” , and “Kill It”. However, Craig G is probably best known for the verse that he dropped on “The Symphony” that went “Next up, I believe that's me..” Now his rhymes are more known than ever because he was responsible for writing most of the battle rhymes in the motion picture 8-Mile. Since then Craig has dropped the single “Say What Ya Want”, produced by GZA that was the Lead off single for the D&D Project II, and his newly released Album “This is Now”.

West Coast rapper Tash of the LIKS (Tha Alkaholiks) born Rico Smith in Columbus, OH, is best known for bringing the party to life with hits like "Make Room", "Daaam!" and "Likwit". Tha Liks have been one of the most successful and influential hip hop artists over the last decade and have been a constant fixture in both the commercial and underground rap scene worldwide. As a protégé of King Tee and Ice T, in 1992 Tash co-founded Tha Alkaholiks. Since then he and THA LIKS have released 5 CDs including “X.O. Experience” featuring BUSTA RHYMES, XZIBIT, KURUPT and THE NEPTUNES, “21 & Over” featuring KING TEE and LOOT PACK; “Coast II Coast” featuring Q-TIP “Likwidation” featuring NAS and OL' DIRTY BASTARD and TASH's solo album “Rap Life” featuring RAEKWON and OUTKAST.

Q-Unique formerly of the Arsonists / Rock steady Crew is a Brooklyn, MC that truly takes pride in Bringing back showmanship to Hip-Hop. On the Arsonists debut album, “As the World Burns” Q-Unique showed the ability to lead a team much like Kobe Bryant and the Lakers. In “Date of Birth” He refined his skills and gave the world a True School Hip Hop Album, and in his new single "The Ugly Place" Q rips through this record showing another side of him and proves that he is no stranger to the solo format.
