Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Artist Name: Michael Blaide


Born and raised in NJ, Blaide began his entertainment career at 18 as a Professional Wrestler.

Having participated in Theatre, Music and the Arts at Fort Lee High School, as well as studying

Television Production at Monmouth University, Blaide found the beginnings of his career to be a

natural fit. His vision was born and while the vehicle and execution as evolved, grown and

changed over the years – the direction of providing family fun entertainment while giving back

to the community has never faltered or quit.

Utilizing a background in hip hop dance, Blaide began working as a dance teacher part time.

Through training with elite dancers and studying from teachers across NY and NJ, Blaide found

himself working as a choreographer and performance coach. You can see his reputation

precedes him, as he's cameoed already in LOE's HOT NEW SINGLE "The Money Walk" by Young

Scratt and King Kollision.

The pieces of the puzzle would continue to align, while Blaide takes a break from competing in

wrestling to learn more about running a nonprofit organization and continuing to build

momentum within the Entertainment and Music Industry. Jayson Holley, of Speed Demons

Entertainment, would give Michael Blaide an opportunity to be a feature on his single, “Zoom

Zoom”. The two would click and bond after the project finished; Future work was planned.

Thanks to a coordinated effort, a variety of singles have been released with more coming.

Blaide's singles are making waves across Online Radio Stations such as WBKE Media, Spotify

Playlists and more. They are accompanied with a stable and recognizable brand (Join The Pack)

and a network of individuals ready to lend their tools, skills and time as Michael Blaide moves

into the final preparations of building his nonprofit dream. It has been a long and steady journey

with many successes and pitfalls along the way, the future looks bright as Michael Blaide

branches out across the Entertainment and Music Industry to create a platform that will allow

independent artists to hone their skills, gain new fans and above all, give back to the

communities in which they perform. "The truest art, God-it comes from the soul; I no longer

have the heart to keep fame as my goal," (Michael Blaide, So Cold, Verse 1)
