Michael Harbut: Why should you work with this multi-talented artist? Michael Harbut is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, and author, among other things. He has worked as an actor, movie producer, music video director and producer, celebrity booking agent, music industry adviser, public speaker, and entrepreneur. In the years between 2008 and 2022, he worked in shadows in the film, television, and music industries. He has collaborated with a wide array of people, including company owners, actors, actresses, musicians, entrepreneurs, brands, celebrities, investors, big record labels, independent record labels, production firms, producers, politicians, and directors. He also collaborated with NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB, PGA, ATP, NASCAR, Boxing, and other elite sportsmen. He has experience working with a wide range of clients, including startups, Fortune 500 firms, tech startups, and more. Although he was born in Ohio, he spent his formative years in both his hometown and various locations across the Golden State. While he was growing up, he shuttled me back and forth between Compton and Oakland, California, and Dayton, Ohio. In Dayton, Ohio, he attended Meadowdale High School for one year (the ninth grade). When he was cut from the freshman basketball team, he decided to drop out of school. For this reason, he skipped the first two and a half years of high school and then enrolled at Belmont High School, where he played varsity basketball for a single year. After that, the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) informed him that he could no longer play high school basketball under the Clair Muscaro OHSAA’s jurisdiction. So he moved away from Ohio to go to Redemption Christian Academy, a prep school in Troy, New York. His teammate Lamar Odom went on to win an NBA championship with the Los Angeles Lakers and play for several more teams. He had to return to Ohio when his time at Redemption Christian Academy ended owing to commitments with his family there. Later, he completed his education at Belmont High School in Dayton, Ohio. He enrolled at Central State University and spent a year there after finishing high school. When he was done with his studies at Central State University, he transferred to Clark State Community College to play basketball and earn his Associate of Arts degree in Elementary Education. He then attended Upper Iowa University, where he played college basketball and received a bachelor’s degree in business marketing. After finishing college, he stayed at Wells Fargo Financial through 2008. He left following the 2008 market and housing collapse. He then embarked on a journey of discovery, moving from place to place in search of work and a new identity. Later, he decided to start Bottom2thatop Entertainment which is a multi-entity company. He was the CEO and co-founder of Global Music Distribution, Music Royalty Financing, IAM Feeling Good CBD and Hemp Company, Hoops and Vacation, Authentic Digital Marketing, Jetsetters Booking Agency, Linked Management, Solar Energy ASAP, Bottom2thatop Records, Authentic Creative Marketing. Jetsetters Marketing & Management Group Worldwide TM, and a few more companies are all under his leadership and direction. Furthermore, he and his son Michael Anderson have published more than fifty children’s books and have plans to publish an autobiography in addition to a number of works of fiction, novels, and nonfiction. This man splits his time between the cities of Miami, California, and Las Vegas. Since he was 7 years old till he was 23 years old, he played basketball, and it is his favorite sport. He was a player at every level from the Amateur Athletic Union through High School to Prep School to College. It’s been a long time since he last picked up a basketball, and that was in college. His original goal in life was to become a professional basketball player for the NBA, but since that didn’t work out, he’s moved on to pursue other passions in the arts, including business, entertainment, and music. Over the course of his career, he has collaborated with numerous companies, including Jordan Tower Films, Worldstarhiphop, Universal Music Group, Livenation, ICM, Willaim Morris, CAA, Def Jam Records, MMP, New Money Twinz, Artest Media Group, and more. He has faith in Allah, and he loves his mom, his kids, his family, his friends, his team, and his coworkers. His message is, “Never give up and always put Allah first.” What doesn’t destroy you makes you stronger, he adds. With Allah’s help and your own determination, you may accomplish anything. Keep your mind on the task at hand, and learn to appreciate yourself, your fellow man, and your existence. Stick to the established norms. Knowledge and love, in the name of Allah, are potent weapons.
Rapper Cee Armel; born in New Brunswick, New Jersey, has been making significant strides in the International Music Scene since his 2017 move to the Far East.
His silky delivery, vivid lyricism as well as his unique ability to switch up his flow with ease are just some of the reasons fans gravitate to his sound. A member of the New Jersey based “Lets Roll Records” imprint since 2010, Ceez as he’s colloquially known, has adapted greatly to the ever changing sounds in music. Look for Cee Armel to continue to build on his already solid catalog with his 2022 project ” Cee The World 2″
“Cee The World 2” is a celebration of all of my wins (and losses) over the past 5 years. I personally feel I’ve gotten better with each previous release, but when I locked in and started crafting CTW2 I really put my stamp on it. I allowed myself the necessary time to perfect my sound as well as push some boundaries. I was way more selfish in studio sessions, picker with my beat selection, and I also challenged myself to not settle. I tried my best to bring the listener along for a first hand view into my mind as an artist. If I can say so myself, this is my best body of work. Tap In!!
