Company/ Artist Bio:
Full Range Inc. is a very new, very hot company dedicated to bringing you consistently hot music—the writing, the production, the beats by RJ, the live performances… the full and complete songs are all HOT!
Full Range Inc. (FRI) was conceived, built, and continues to grow under the direction of co-founding CEO’s Robbin Johnson and Paul Pitts. Today, the partners consider their company to be “small but thinking big.” Their focus is music; however, Johnson and Pitts are always making mental notes and keeping track of ideas for future expansion. “We hold the feeling, the belief, the faith that only God can stop us… and being children of God we feel nothing but positive about the Full Range movement,” says Johnson.
Robbin Johnson (co-CEO) is the engineer, head producer, and half of Full Range's group: AB & RJ. He’s a knowledge-sponge, soaking up business, technological, and creative information. RJ has a background in music working with several artists before they "blew up" (like Jon B. and Troop). He's seen raw talent turn into gold, deals go down, fall apart, and come to life.
RJ’s musical talent extends into his family where his grandfather played trumpet in Duke Ellington's band, and his grandmother made a living by performing in many Hollywood plays and live shows. RJ’s mother raised him on an assortment of music: old-school R&B, rock, funk, soul, etc. As a child RJ performed in the mirror, and by high school, he was winning talent shows as a member of a local dance group. He got into singing and rapping as well, finding a creative outlet through music. Eventually, Johnson put together a production and recording studio where he currently records for Full Range Inc. and other artists. RJ has his sight set on being the next star to blow up.
Paul Pitts (co-CEO) is the behind-the-scenes action man for Full Range Inc. (FRI). He makes most of the connections and is the industry "ear" for the company. Pitts believes it’s his job to be in-tune with what's happening. “To compete in this industry you have to be current with it,” says Pitts. “I’m constantly on the Internet, in magazines, reading, taking notes, learning, coming up with ideas, plans, and collecting the info we base our decisions upon.” Paul Pitts (AB) is also the other half of Full Range’s group: AB & RJ. “AB is the voice and the personality of the group,” says RJ.
AB grew up as a popular athlete. He played football in high school and went to college on a full-scholarship to BYU. He made All-Conference and All-American and had big plans to enter the NFL. After a leg injury in his senior year, AB was sadly forced to give up his first love (even after some workouts with NFL teams.) He then turned to his second love, music, and soon found himself engulfed with it. He began writing and honing his skills as a rapper.
AB & RJ are two of the hottest new rappers to come out of the west. Born and raised in Altadena/Pasadena, California. They knew each other growing up but didn't become close until later in the game. RJ was producing and recording in his home studio when AB came looking for tracks. Before long, they began working together, feeding off of each other as they grew in their craft, creating lyrics, and forming a rap style based on similar personalities. Soon, they became best friends and business partners.
Together, these two have shaped the direction, goals, and focus of Full Range Inc. Often times, one is stronger in the other's weakness, so there are few things Johnson and Pitts can't handle. Furthermore, they are convinced that Full Range Inc. is the next Bad Boy or Roc-a-fella. Time will tell, but one thing's for sure: Full Range Inc. is one to watch!
Musical Style (Tracks):
AB & RJ’s music is aimed at clubs, radio, and car systems with the intention of making you want to move and get into the songs. They record in their own studio (in RJ's home), so they are able to immediately take new song ideas into production. All pre-production, recording, and mixing is done "in house" by RJ. However, final production, song creation, and vocals can’t be done without the collaboration of both AB&RJ.
The lyrical style is "fun-playa." AB & RJ rap about what they see, do, and enjoy talking about... mostly SEX and WOMEN! As mentioned before, the lyrics are clever, comedic, and full of personality...with that "player" edge. With all of this rolled into their own unique style and delivery, they verbally and melodically entertain their listeners.
