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

Art Music to Author the Pearl Story

Over a decade ago a independent music company based out of St. Louis, Black Pearl Entertainment/BPEnt, did the unthinkable by charting the music Billboard four times within a two year period. What made this accomplishment so gratifying was the duo of Yung Ro and his father/manager Roland Sato Page Sr. captained the movement into victory. This was done when labels weren't offering hefty budgets to indie rap artist and encouraging artist to invest into their own brand. The BPEnt family fared the critics that a father/son was not advisable in the rap game. Fast forward now, Yung Ro is one of the youngest and most prominent businessman in the St. Louis area. This go around he has the help of his younger brother Jiro Page to share some of the responsibilities. The father has taken a back seat due to Lupus which hindered some of his hand motor skills. The discouraging thing about this is most people know the history of Black Pearl of being a famous tattoo shop for the past 25 years in the downtown area.

Many of Yung Ro fans wondered what happen to the new artist after all he was destined to be one of the hottest young talents to come out of the midwest. Now the answer to that question is apparent. He had to step into his father's shoes and lead the enterprise. Yung Ro did just that as before with Jiro the two breathed a burst of youthful fresh air into the company propelling it to exceed the previous status of his father. A hard act to follow. Though he still owns a recording studio he releases projects now and then. Asked about his music career he states, "Business first! I'm a father now so food on the table for my fam is the #1 priority."

With tragedy comes blessings. The son once managed by the father is now his father's manager. What? Yung Ro witness his father's mental depression so he encouraged his father to switch from visual art (Tattooing) to literary art. Thus introducing indie author Roland Page and his manager Yung Ro. The forth coming novel is Eating the Forbidden Fruit a fictional novel based on his life as a St. Louis police officer convicted of federal drug crimes. A tale of karma, confession, and redemption.

For those who are waiting patiently for the upcoming novel. You won't have to wait too long. The release date is March 2020 with a pre-order link available in late Jan 2020. Stay tuned with update or news on the whole Pearl movement via http://www.authorrolandpage.com
