A group based out of Northern Virginia, SNRG is i.speak (Aaron Canlas aka "crayon") and L.A.STone the last one (BeaU CanlaS aka "BEAUcanLAST")....the first shall be last and the last shall be first...

" I speak as i see the world... and i relay with which they can relate." From his parents' supply of Oldies and Classic Rock to his older brother's collection from the Golden Era of Hip-Hop. [i.speak] later developed his own affinity for the eclectic, falling in love to Slow Jams, and rocking out to the sound of his heart breaking. Throughout, he has gained inspiration from his upbringing and personal episodes, and has been actively expressing his creative concepts on multiple levels. He plays an integral role in the young company, SNRG, an LLC that simultaneously promotes its message through merchandise, music, and their moves. Before their departure from the Philippines, [i.speak], along with [L.A.Stone] of SNRG, released their first official music video entitled, "You Don't Know Me...", on rotation for MTV in Asia. [i.speak] has always presented his Asian descent, Western appeal, Southern hospitality, and East Coast sense wherever he goes...

We are a message of passion. Passion shared through music, graphic design, photography, film and fashion. SNRG is a coalition of Creatives. We present a platform ranging from active artists all the way to the hidden artist inside of you. Feed your subconscious. SNRG is Some Never Really Get. . .
those that Get it- Get us.­

Sulu DC fosters relationships with local and national activist organizations, nurtures the artistic development of emerging AAPI artists and builds inter-generational alliances with cities across North America in preparation for the biennial APIA Spoken Word & Poetry Summit (next summit: 2011 in Twin Cities, MN.
