Demarco Castle aka Gemstones, formerly known as Gemini when he was signed to Lupe Fiasco’s label 1st & 15th, made the bold move to walk away from a major label because he saw a bigger purpose for his life & his music.
Now with a new label Xist Music & a new mission, Gemstones debut single “Circles” is a presentation of what Gemstones wants to relay to the youth of Chicago & around the country.
“My reason for writing "Circles" was to bring more awareness of black on black crime in our communities. Knowing I can't change the world but if I reach one my job is done.” says Gemstones.
In 2012, Chicago had 500 murders; in 2013, the Chicago Tribune reported that there were 440 murders, & is currently reporting 280 murders.
Gemstones wanted his first single to address the violence & let the kids know there is a better way to handle our differences.
This is a sample of the type of positive, spirit filled message Gemstones is bringing forth on his debut album 'Blind Elephant' that will be released February 24th, 2015!!!
