Scottie B, along with DJs Shawn Caesar and Karizma, founded Unruly Records in the 1996. The local label became the cornerstone for many local DJs and music artist, earning international recognition and defining Baltimore’s culture with an original style of club music.
Bilal Bahar, who is currently a senior at UB, video tapped the event. Bilal is a local music artist, videographer/producer and former TV host of two popular local music shows called B-Filzes and Crushforce TV. Bilal believes that the contributions of local Baltimore music to society have been copied, abandoned, and ignored. He says the culture of music in Baltimore City has been pushed aside. Bilal is passionate about giving back to the community through music. He is the CEO of a Community Foundation called Evolve Community Foundation Inc. and will be graduating with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from UB this fall. Bilal is contributing his video work to Langsdale Library in an initiative to preserve Baltimore’s community records.
