It's TAJ the Sergeant, I'm play callin'

TAJ is a hip-hop artist born and raised in the Quad Cities. After experimenting with music while playing college basketball, TAJ released his first EP fall of 2016 called 4 for the 4. Since then TAJ has been on a mission to supply great music and vibes to anyone with ears.

TAJ's biggest musical influences are André 3000, Ms. Lauryn Hill and Lil Wayne. Music is the universal language of mankind and TAJ's message is to spread consciousness and positivity through his sounds. TAJ also does visual work for The East$iders along with heading up promotion for the gang.

FVNTVNV in here cookin' beats like a chef!

FVNTVNV, born Brian Fanning in Hoffman Estates, IL is an upcoming music producer and songwriter that is looking to break the boundaries of what the modern producer can do. His style ranges from smooth R&B tracks, to some of the hardest knocking Trap beats you’ll hear. He also likes to pay tribute to Hip-Hop’s beginnings with classic sounding Boom-Bap tracks. Whatever sound you are looking for, FVNTVNV is bringing it to the table.

FVNTVNV did not start his musical career in Hip-Hop however. He is a classically trained percussionist who got his start performing and teaching in marching percussion ensembles. He has performed with the WGI ensemble Cavaliers Indoor Percussion (formerly called Green Thunder Percussion) as well as teaching for multiple High School groups in the Chicagoland area. He also taught drums at United Township High School, which is where the rest of the East$iders went to school back in the day.

FVNTVNV’s creative production style alongside the innovative flows and lyricism of the vocalists of East$iders creates something everyone can vibe too.
