THE CORP CARTEL

The trio The Corp Cartel hailing from the Washington Heights section of Manhattan is bringing their funky futuristic sound and style to the streets. Jonathan “Jaywise” Perez 27 , Mark “Tana” Melendez 27 and Alex “Chaos” Dore also 27 make up The Corp Cartel.

They were known individually for their MC skills in their own hoods and when they met they took it to the next level and created a mega group. “Originally The Corporation was the real name of our team and we just took over in every aspect of the way and while doing that we figured we had everything else on lockdown why not take over the music game as well. so with that being said we started a new addition to the
Corporation and shortened the name to The Corp. and added the Cartel due to our take charge attitude.”

The Corp Cartel has won the Latin Hip Hop Artist Award at the New York Underground Music Awards, they have performed at the Tribeca Film Festival and the 10th Annual New York Latino Film Festival presented by HBO.

“We had the inspiration, drive and dedication to take it to the next level and refused to be taken lightly.”

They have been working extremely hard and have a lot to show for it.

In 2005 they released their first mix tape installment entitled Unsigned Heights Vol. 1 with the late DJ Carl Blaze followed by Vol. 2 and in 2008 their single “Do You Want Me,” hit the independent charts.

Within the last few years they have had the opportunity to work with DJ Enuff, the late DJ Carl Blaze, DJ Prostyle, Crowdmover LBoogs and DJ Green Latern . Producers: Rockwilder, Kane Beatz, Michael “Seven” Summers and XV and as well as a few clothing lines such as: Sabit, Lavie, Gifted Elite, Kid Robot, Brian Wood, Dirty Jax and Orisue to name just a few of the ppl they have worked with in the entertainment and fashion world.
