Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer-Timothy "Sharrief"
Thomas is a research and engineering writer for BMI
(Broadcast Music, Inc.) and currently handles all of NJ Five's
booking and promotions. He started in Hip-Hop as an emcee
in the late 1980's. His youthful style and unique voice made
him an instant hit in his neighborhood of Paterson, New
Jersey. Through the years, Sharrief has worked and
performed with notable artists such as Red Head Kingpen,
who helped Mr. Thomas and his brother land a single deal
with Atlantic Records under the moniker "Funky Righteous." Later, Mr. Thomas became part of Eddie
Murphy brother rap group called K-9 Posse and they toured with several R&B and Hip-Hop favorites
such as Bobby Brown, KRS One, MC Hammer, Kid N' Play, Salt N' Pepa, Rob Base, Kool & The Gang,
and many others. The experiences Mr. Thomas gained on tour
makes him an authority on the sound and presentation of
music. Forming part of his vision to create the current INE (Iron
Nation Entertainment, inc.) team as early as 2008 as a result of
his eye for detail and familiarity with the changes in Hip-Hop
and R&B over time, Mr. Thomas's role as CEO of INE is an
essential ingredient to and the cornerstone of the
implementation of the INE Plan.
