His ability to come up with impactful lyrics has helped him garner mainstream appeal for years.
Rick Hyde is another rap talent and songwriter in the team who also sits as a producer and engineer. He has been creating his music path under Griselda and BSF. In 2019, he dropped his debut album Plates, which featured hip-hop stars like El Camino, Boons, and Benny the Butcher. He is set to release his 2020 work of art, Plates 2. He has been in several mixtapes and guest appearances. Since his album, he continues to tour and prime his projects. He seeks to provide BSF a fresh perspective of the music industry.
Loveboat Luciano is also another hungry, up-and-coming rapper under the umbrella of BSF.

As a songwriter, he writes from a significant vantage point. Growing up in an area notorious for drugs and violence, Heem has the ability to depict real-life struggles through his music. His father’s gangster lifestyle was the catalyst that ignited his passion for gangster rap.
The BSF embodies a strong and dynamic force in the rap game. With their strengths in music combined, they can make up for each other’s weaknesses. This helps the BSF stand out among the rest of the rap artists in town.
