CoreCre8, a division of Core Media House L.L.C., took Art and Ike C from the Pittsburgh stage to Los Angeles club play in one month. “I had a showcase in Pittsburgh for a promotion company that was helping me with a mixtape-release project. That’s where me and Art performed a track,” says Ike C. Art recalls, “The very moment I stepped off the stage, CoreCre8 meant business and believed in my talent.”
Steven “Art” Williams wrote the rap lyrics for Around the World. Isaac “Ike C” Cummings and Charles Constantino wrote the sung lyrics. Core Media House co-founder Charles Constantino wrote and arranged the music for Around the World and produced the song. Ike C says, “With the help of Charles producing the final beat and arranging the vocal placement, we recorded the track. Within days, our track was mixed and mastered and being played by popular deejays in the Los Angeles area.” Charles Constantino Publishing—a member of ASCAP, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers—is the exclusive publisher of Around the World.
