Black Market Music Group Signs Cpt. Hooks [News]


Toronto, ON – Last week HipHopCanada was the first to report JD Era’s signing to Raekwon’s record label ICEH20. Now more news from Era’s camp as Black Market Music Group (BMMG) announces they’ve signed Cpt Hooks. With his distinctly pop-focused, futuristic sound, the pick up is an interesting move from the camp who recently signed their label deal with Universal Music.

Captain Hooks current single “Happy Times” is now available on iTunes. According to BMMG Ceo Fase, fans can look out for Hooks’ follow up single “Walk The Plank” in late summer with his album of the same name dropping in fall 2011.

@ThatsBizz is a Senior Contributor for HipHopCanada and a member of the Central Canada team. The nuts and bolts of Jonathon “Bizz” Brown are impressive, but it’s his ability to apply his skills, identify opportunities, adapt to new environments and get the job done that makes him who he is. An engaging combination of education, experience and vision, Brown continues to make his mark on many fronts and plant his flag as a professional on the rise. Entrenched in the urban music scene for more than half a decade, Bizz launched Crack House Radio in 2004. Over the next four years, the online radio show would evolve into a major outlet for Canadian music and hip hop culture in general. Over that time, Bizz interviewed countless artists and professionals including Belly, Bishop, Drake, Classified, Guru, Joell Ortiz, author and gang specialist Michael Chettleburg, Brent (owner of Just Ent) & many others. In 2007, Bizz joined Urbanology Magazine as a staff writer and would go on to contribute dozens of articles over the next three years including a cover story on Classified in 2009. 2007 also saw the launch of Bizz' line of t-shirts reading "Hip Hop Ain't Dead It Lives In The North." Since then, he's toured with Peter Jackson, Busta Rhymes, DJ Dames Nellas, Bishop, Slaughterhouse & Pharoahe Monch and secured a strong following with his column on called "The Fine Print."
