Thed Weller and Constantine the Emcee met in 2005 at a “Last Sunday” open mic event in Birmingham, Alabama.

An impactful educator, actor, lyricist, and spoken word artist, Thed Weller contributed to the soundtrack for the 2007 Emmy Award-Winning Alabama Public Television documentary, Mr. Dial Has Something to Say. He is the lead vocalist for the hip-hop collective, DAT2, comprised of himself, “Fly” Dave Johnson (drums), Mario Leonard (bass), and Brian “Squeeze” Hill (guitar). Thed is also set to be honored at this year’s 8th Annual Alabama Music Awards on July 24, 2022.

Constantine the Emcee broke ground in the Birmingham arts community with his music production skills and live audio engineering tenacity. In 2008, he established the independent music label, Responsible Media LLC, and in 2017, branded the Birmingham-based media production studio, LaCon Audio.

The duo collaborated in 2010 to write the Award-winning Michael Jackson Tribute, “Glue, Glitter, Glove,” which won both Best Song and Best Video in Sidewalk Film Festival’s 2010 Sidewalk Scramble Jam music video-making film festival.

Well-known Birmingham artists who will be joining the duo at The World Games Plaza include songstress Kibibi Jones, rapper and deejay Jon “DJ Supreme” Malone and producer Timothy “Hemp” Johnson.

“Fly” Dave Johnson will also double as Host of the Sound Stage on July 15 as well, so make plans to attend.

Produced by the phenomenal Sam P. Addams, “Glue, Glitter, Glove” appears on Thed Weller’s third studio album, 2019 GNILTSUH (pronounced: hustling backwards), and is currently available on all streaming platforms.
