Unsuccessful Thug: One Comedian’s Journey from Naptown to Tinseltown
by Mike Epps
From Naptown to Tinseltown—legendary stand-up comedian and actor Mike Epps finally tells all in this outrageous, hilarious, no-holds-barred memoir.
Before starring in Def Comedy Jam and Showtime at the Apollo—before the sold-out comedy shows, Uncle Buck, and becoming his hero Richard Pryor in a biopic—there was Indianapolis. And not the good part. Mike Epps is one of America’s favorite and funniest people, but the path to fame was paved with opportunities to mess it up. And mess it up he did.

Artist spotlight. ILYA SEROV
“(Ilya) really is a talented trumpeter and a great singer. This guy has got the goods. Ilya Serov-remember that name.”—Dave Koz
Russian-born Ilya Serov is a young jazz musician with an old soul. Classically trained at the prestigious St. Petersburg Conservatory, trumpet player and vocalist Serov decided to follow his love of jazz, cultivated as a teenager in the Russian city of Saratov, by pursuing his dreams in the U.S. He now is building a following among fans and seasoned players alike as one of the scene’s budding new talents.
"(Ilya) is a great, great trumpet player; and I love his voice," Sanchez said. "Ilya has a great thing here because it's commercial enough for the mainstream to enjoy and like, but it's hip enough for the jazz folks to like also because he's a great trumpet player. He can sing the tunes and play them. That's the edge he's got."

More than music. Delivering the magic of Kaissa’s voice is only the start for this remarkable artist.
When an original voice rises up, music lovers are moved to listen. Now Kaïssa is the one motivating a fast-growing audience, connecting through soaring vocal talents and the irresistible African-inspired rhythms of her songs.
A child of the culturally rich Republic of Cameroon, Kaïssa’s passion for music fueled by the romance of Paris, where her family relocated when she was still young. Kaissa’s vocal ability began to turn heads in studios throughout the City of Lights, and when the opportunity to join French multi-media artist CharlElie Couture’s European tour arose, Kaïssa stepped on the bus and never looked back....visit website
