Catching Rec. Entertainment
Founded 2005; CEO, Christopher Rodriguez, CEO, Rashad Kirk.
Catching Rec. Entertainment, founded in 2005 by co-founder Christopher Rodriguez and Co-Founder Rashad Kirk has developed into a resilient entertainment company that specializes in original beat production, song production, mix-tape production, and specialty in D.J. entertainment. Catching Rec. Entertainment was created from the ideology that “everyone – no matter what you’re doing in life – if it’s successful, you’re catching rec! The core of Catching Rec. Entertainment is built from “originality”, as CEO Christopher puts it; this originality comes from own unique crafts, such as having a good ear for great music, DJ’ing, producing and blending. As CEO Kirk stated, “we definitely want our entertainment company to re-recognize an art that has become lost, blending.” With successes such as producing a beat for a movie trailer, producing R&B songs, blending new reggeaton tracks, fresh hip-hop tracks, and producing a mix-tape blend, this company’s main focus is growth in which they have shown. As both CEO’s mentioned “the only way is up from this point”.
From the start these two brothers (as they like to put it) have been taking on a true uphill battle in building this business that is now evolving into success. Once known as S.O.L. Entertainment; Catching Rec. Entertainment is the new truth and definition of overcoming the struggles in life and focusing on what real determination is! Catching Rec. represents every person, from every hood, on every street corner that has a passion for something! What was once a dream is now the reality; and by no means does this entertainment company plan to slow up on producing new beats, new blends and tracks, and song production. Their continued success will come from their determination to succeed in the music industry and to continue to work with well versatile people of the music industry. So in essence, the plan is to keep Catching Rec. …. “ it’s more than music, it’s a lifestyle!”

Metafore (Tashian Turner) began his love for hip hop music at a young age when his mother bought him a portable karaoke machine for his birthday. He would always record himself over instrumentals of hip hop tracks that were being played on the radio stations and TV at that time. Over the years, Metafore developed and perfected his own unique style, giving him a “stand alone” characteristic to his music. His mother, being one of his biggest advocates, always carried a copy of his demo with her no matter where she went. One day while his mother was at work, one of her co-worker’s overheard her listening to his demo CD and fell in love with his style. Ironically, this co-worker happened to have a deep connection in the music industry and this is where Metafore began his journey in creating professional quality music. Signing a deal with Luckybug Entertainment, Metafore was given exposure to the trials and tribulations of a non-stop, demanding industry and allowed him to gain experience in professional studio recording, music video shoots, live performances and afforded him the ability to work with industry professionals such as Producer Charles Roane, the Alchemist, Hot 97’s DJ Envy, DJ Espee, Method Man and KRS One. In 2007, Metafore rejected an offer from Interscope/A&M/Geffen Records CEO Jimmy Iovine in order to maintain his creative independence and keep his music his own. After taking a break from the rigorous lifestyle of the music industry upon the expiration of his contract with Luckybug, Metafore is stepping back onto the rap scene with renewed passion and drive following the birth of his daughter in 2012. Alongside up and coming production company Catching Rec Entertainment, Metafore is poised to make waves in the industry with his modern, eclectic style that provides a little for everyone whether it’s in the clubs, the streets or in the sheets.
