There are some enterprises in the music industry and beyond that are correctly
named, and CLEARVISION ENTERTAINMENT is one of them! Every move it
makes in the industry is a result of the “clear vision” of its CEO and lead artist,
New Orleans’ own CRIX GREEN. His mission is crystal clear, and so is that of
the company: to create an indelible impact on the entertainment industry and
provide an ocean of economic opportunity for everyone associated with the
Crix Green grew up in New Orleans, La. as one of 10 siblings. “We weren’t
poor, but we weren’t rich either; my 3 sisters slept in one room, and my 6 brothers
and I slept in another. From a young age I became about my business-I knew I
wanted to live comfortably, and give my family a better life, so I did what I had to
do to put some bread in my pocket and food on the table”.
Crix began his journey in the music industry as a songwriter for New Orleans
based INMATE Records, working closely with his brother BIG REN on his debut
“THE REN ALBUM”. In 2005, after Katrina hit the Crescent City, Crix had an
epiphany of sorts, saying “After Katrina, I realized it was time to get busy. I
learned that when things are good, people put on a good front and act like
everything is cool, but when trouble comes, you see who people really are, and
they show their true colors. Everything got real serious for me in all aspects of my
life after Katrina hit”.
In late 2005, he formed CLEARVISION ENTERTAINMENT, and began
producing an album for his talented protégé DESERT, who sadly passed away in
prison from a seizure before Desert could complete his album. “I know how to
survive when tragedy strikes, so I didn’t let DESERT’S passing deter my grind; I
knew I had to step up and carry the torch for the Clearvision movement, so I
became the featured artist in addition to being the CEO of the company”.
He completed his first album in late 2008, and dropped another album to rave
reviews after linking up with the well known DJ SCREAM which featured the
popular “Ben Franklin” and “I’m On It” featuring PAPA REU. In 2013 Crix
dropped the single “Feel Good”, and later remixed it to feature JUVENILE. His
new single, “So Cool” is burning up the airwaves while its video has thousands of youtube views, and will be the lead single off his album “A Gangsta & A
Gentlemen” which will drop this summer.
When asked how it is to wear two hats as CEO and lead artist, Crix says “
Everything we do here at Clearvison is real; I’ve always worn more than one hat
in my personal life as a businessman, father, son, brother, MC, songwriter, etc.
The streets taught me to trust only those who are worthy of being trusted, which is
why I handpick the artists in the Clearvision family-they ride or die with me, and I
ride or die with them. Wearing two or more hats is easy when everything you do
works toward the good of the company-its all about having a “clear vision” of
where you want to go and how you want to get there-that is why I named our
company CLEARVISION ENTERTAINMENT”.
