The Bullitts is an evolution and revolution in music and film. A well-rounded talent who not only creates groundbreaking music in the form of unforgettable songs, but also directs classic visuals and movies that accompanies them.

“The Bullitts isn’t a band, it’s not an outfit, it’s just the moniker that I make music under. I guess in this instance, one man is a plural”
--- Jeymes Samuel
As the July 30th release date of his self-written and directed short film, "Dirty Laundry: Greed Has No Face" draws near, Feli (Felony) Fame treats us with another example of his visual creativity. "Drop Dead Gorgeous" serves as a tribute of sorts both to all of the beautiful people in the world and to those that have sacrificed much in their attempts to grasp or hold on to the 'American Dream.' The video was produced by Nick Rio, directed by Anthony Scott Deperto and conceptualized by Feli himself.

Los Angeles, CA…Rapper Skee-Lo disappeared from the music scene after releasing one of the biggest records of the 90s, the iconic "I Wish." After a 17 year hiatus, he has returned with a new sound, a new attitude and new record label. The new single aptly titled “Vibe is Right” marks a trifecta return for Skee-Lo. Renewed interest in Skee-Lo and “I Wish” has been sparked by inclusion in 3 of Toyota’s Rav 4 national commercials featuring ‘Big Bang Theory’ star Kaley Cuoco. The first commercial, which debuted during the 2013 Super Bowl Game, has received over 16 million views, and sales of the “I Wish” single and album has hit an all time high. Wish granted!

Lamar Leggard opines: "It's an extreme honor and pleasure to be a part of something as monumental as the rebirth of a legend such as Skee-Lo. The album is incredibly crafted, innovative, and again Skee-Lo is making timeless music in an era where ‘Fresh Ideas’ count the most. I hope the world will see what we did and do and can appreciate and enjoy what Skee-Lo and his team are bringing.”
