Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Chad “Focus” Arrington, grew up with a unique fondness for music; especially the soulful sounds of R&B. The oldest child of Lillian Milburn and Spencer Arrington, Chad “Focus” Arrington was exposed to the hits of the great early Motown acts, such as The Jacksons, The Temptations and Stevie Wonder, to name a few.
Arrington grew up obsessed with artists known for great musicianship, creativity, and star appeal. He remembers his mother singing “My Girl” and “Pretty Young Thing” in the elementary years of his life, as she would get ready for work as a nurse.
Music guided them through all the hard times, and he really appreciated the business minded musicians who used the craft to express themselves and create multitude of opportunities for their friends and family.
After his parents divorced, his mom put him into Piano lessons.
For the next decade, Arrington was trained in classical piano, while also growing to be one of the top young basketball players in his hometown area. As his team chased the 2005 3A Maryland State Championship, Arrington quit piano and put his music completely aside to focus on athletics.
Arrington attended Randallstown High School and majored in Mass Communications. At the seasons end, Arrington received his diploma and used his charisma and good grades to secure a partial scholarship to McDaniel College of Westminster.
Arrington helped lead the McDaniel Green Terror to the first NCAA Postseason appearance in the 86 year school history, and graduated with his Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications.
After college he pursued multiple entrepreneurial pursuits such as ownership of his own IT company, an Independent Agora Publishing Super-Affiliate, a Search Engine Optimization Consulting Firm, a Portable Electronics Startup and most recently his own label Focus Music Entertainment, LLC.
The trials and tribulations were all worth, it in his mind. The shortcomings only built a “never quit” attitude and have been responsible for the current movement we’re all witnessing.
“It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you believe in yourself…”
Fast forward to early 2016, Arrington was on Youtube all day at work, just watching a motivational Diddy and 50 Cent video, and he thought why not give this music thing a shot.
Arrington decided to build his Focus Music Entertainment Label from the ground up.
Recruiting first, his cousin Brandon “Troyse” Williams (Baltimore, MD), rapper, owner of D.I.Y.S. committee records, and writer whose work has been featured on hit shows Empire and Power. Songs “Bad Guy” and “Shot’s Fired” became placements that shook up the industry and garnered Williams residual publishing royalties.
Williams and Arrington co-collaborated for the Labels first LP release, with the Release of “Life Absolutely” in Summer 2016. The album featured breakouts such as “Important” and “Only” ft. Raeliss.
The solid debut effort would garner attention from the @Costars, who strong industry connections has landed Troyse another 3 upcoming placements on the current season of Power.
Troyse powers the chorus vocals for Chad Focus’ breakout debut single “Get to the Money”.
An ambitious and fast paced energetic hip hop song about staying focused and accomplishing monetary dreams to invest in their dreams.
The song features Chad Focus’ Diddy-like ad-libs in the background, profusely chanting “Wasup, Wasup” and “Get to the Money”!
Troyse is accompanied by fellow Baltimore relative Robert “Flames” Collins who pays homage to the great Lucious Lyon by referring to the stature of the character’s Mogul level in the hit show, Empire. Flames follows the first verse of the powerful, Toned Cito G (Woodlawn, MD).
Cito is seen staring intensely into the mirror as he raps about thinking about “what’s next” in his hope to leave behind a past of misfortune and close calls.
As the hit single closes out, Troyse raps about others not being able to compare to walking in his shoes because “his sneaker’s off” as in a reference to the fact that his level of lyricism is unreachable in his mind.
This proves to be a solid group showing by the Focus Music Quartet, displaying range, diversity and energy bound to find some staying power on radio airways across the world.
Chad “Focus” Arrington is currently the urban face of MOBE (My Own Business Education), an online educational powerhouse for prospecting entrepreneurs.
His master ability at marketing has allowed him to make FocusMusicEnt.com the home to his current roster of artists. Look forward to a release of 100 songs and 10 albums in one day.
The Mogul hopes to make an unheard-of splash not seen before in the industry. With Flames Street Ties Vol. 2 compilation being the mixtape that started the 2017 summer off the right way. Re-release of Troyse’s Live Absolutely 2.0, and G.T.F.O.H., sophomore effort respectively.
Look forward to in-house production from Oakes, Ocktane Beatz, ForeFeddy, and Raeliss. “Forever Young” Cito G feat. Chad Focus is a groundbreaking trap melody about a glorious lifestyle of womens and wins.
Chad Focus also shows his versatility on “The Way” feat. Raeliss and Cito G.
This will be one of the hottest songs of the summer.
Focus wastes no time letting listeners know he is no newcomer to the exotic lifestyle.
He’s spiritly chants of having an X6 (BMW) and 30 Bands ($30,000) on his wrist.
This young mogul seems to be fully aware of the braggadocios aspect of the hip hop culture and seems to recreate the thoughts of the past moguls like Jermain Dupri, Birdman, 50 Cent and most famously Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Focus not only hold his own as part CEO/Musician but gives way to his artist to create their own hits in his self-built masterpiece Focus Music Studios.
Chad Focus will bring in the rear with his own Debut two disk album which will feature production from top producers from all over the world.
Look forward to a dynamic blend of swagger and finesse as the Mogul turned all-around performer will release his own full length projects.
In total, Focus has been in talks with the top festivals in the world to bring his roster of Focus Music talent to a city near year.
As Focus continues to mold his company, build his own sound, and figure out a way to make a viral impression on hip hops new generation will all be tuned in.
Major release of his music can be found on iTunes. Latest single releases can be seen on soundcloud.com Worldstarhiphop.com will be the exclusive place to find the releases of the upcoming Focus Music videos as well as their official website.
