Steve Brown is the CEO of Steve Brown Productions. His passion for performance arts formed when he was a mere teenager. It started with a summer camp through the City of Memphis. It was called “Echoes of Truth”. Steve was trained by the best, Flo Roach, Reginald Gaston, Minister Courtney Franklin and the list goes on. For six weeks during camp the students had to learn songs, act and dance.




Steve Brown was able to perform in front of thousands at the Memphis historic Orpheum Theater. The passion left but came back in the summer of 2016 when he debuted in his first adult stage play called “Clean This House”. After that production, Steve became lead actor in productions such as:
“Speak to your Mountain” (Total Spirit Ministries), “Significant Other”(Larry Nutall Productions),” Sex Play” (MAW Productions), “Survivors Story” (Amy Stuckey).



Steve Brown was so successful as lead actor in multiple productions that he excelled to the next level of his career when he decided to have his own production company. It was a sold out performance that added to his credibility as owner of a performance Arts company. The stage play called “Men Gossip Too”.This show sold out three consecutive times and after great responses he decided to right another stage play entitled “Work Husband”.





During the writing on this production Steve Brown was also recording his very 1st miniseries titled, “The Collins” A Steve Brown Productions. This mini series and the three sold out shows towards the follow up production opened so many doors for Brown.

A tribute to Nipsey Hussle the Great, a divine man who's legacy lives on

Let's take a moment to pay Homage and our Deepest Regards to a man that has made such an impact in his community and across America!
He has created resources and revenue in rural areas in his hometown of California and was in the process of working with the Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners and the city’s police chief to talk about ways he could help stop gang violence and help kids.
In his passing,  I have learned so much about his good deeds and charity to his community as I revisited his life with millions of people around the world since the news first aired about his murder. He was truly an iconic man.










Nipsey Hussle was born Ermias Joseph Asghedom on August 15, 1985 and was recently murdered March 31, 2019.
Nipsey was an American rapper, songwriter, entrepreneur, and community activist from Los Angeles, California.


Nipsey Hussle first debuted on the West Coast in the hip hop scene in the mid-2000s.
At that time he was known for his numerous mixtapes, including his “Bullets Ain't Got No Name series”, “The Marathon”, “The Marathon Continues” and “Crenshaw”,the last of which rapper Jay-Z bought 100 copies of for $100 each.







He successfully accomplished ground breaking records and over careful deliberation Nipsey decided to sign with a label, his debut studio album Victory Lap was released in February 2018 to critical acclaim and commercial success and was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2019.





On March 31, 2019, Hussle was fatally shot outside his store, Marathon Clothing, in South Los Angeles.
Eric Holder, a 29-year-old man who had confronted Hussle earlier in the day, was arrested and charged with murder on April 2, 2019.
Purported gangbanger Eric “Sh-tty Cuz” Holder was arrested around 1:30 p.m. local time in Bellflower, Calif., about 20 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
Charges against Holder, 29, were not immediately announced, but the Los Angeles Police Department had accused him of gunning down Hussle outside the his LA clothing store on Sunday



Sources at the scene of Nipsey's murder has told multiple news reporters after Eric Holder allegedly shot Nipsey twice and the rapper fell to the ground, Nipsey raised his head and said something to the effect of, "You shot me, you got me, I'm good."
Video surveillance around Nipsey Hussle's store shows the alleged shooter Eric Holder had already started to walk away but turned around and walked back in Nipsey's direction when he realized the rapper was still alive. That's when Holder fired additional shots at Nipsey and those bullets, eyewitnesses believe, that killed him.



On April 9, 2019 sources across America released BREAKING NEWS stating that Nipsey Hussle death certificate released from LA Department of Public Health. Record shows he died 35 minutes after being shot multiple times.


"I give my respect and love to Nipsey Hussle's family and friends, Ermias's legacy will live on through all his acts of kindness and in people across the world.
Rest in Power Nipsey HussleπŸ–€"











Here's a video message from Ermias Joseph Asghedom's mother addressing the world about this unfortunate event.
