Jermaine E Gill (born March 6,1989) known as Emmanuel Obamas, and Renaldo J Gill (born June 13,1991) also known as Dread Head Gillie; two bloodline brothers from Louisville, Kentucky. Emmanuel Obamas and Dread Head Gillie, join forces as Commander & Chief. The C&C brother’s music is urban hip-hop that was written and created for a diverse audience that share similar upbringing and circumstances in life.

Emmanuel Obamas and Dread Head Gillie’s mission is to have a platform to touch the disenfranchised and to create music that will reflect the struggle of those that are stereotyped and labeled in society.

Emmanuel Obamas began writing lyrics, songs, and hooks at the age of 14, but in 2004 began taking his passion for music to a new level. Entering in local hip-hop contest and winning a top spot, Emmanuel gained the opportunity to create his first demo CD entitled “Chronicles of Emmanuel”. Later in 2010 Emmanuel invested in studio equipment and started his own record label named “Commander & Chief Entertainment LLC”, going on to release his single “Hate on Me” mixtape song and video.

Inspired by his childhood friends and older brother Dread Head Gillie begin writing and recording music at the age of 18 and building his own reputation as an artist. The C&C brothers started collaborating as a team and by 2015 Emmanuel Obamas signed Dread Head Gillie as his first artist to the Commander & Chief label. Since, coming together the brothers have recorded, and performed several songs together.

They released their first single mixtape song “I GOT A PLUG” in 2015, and got grave reviews. Also, performing the single at the “King of Diamonds” night club in Miami, FL. The two continued their collaborating and released their single “GOING CRAZY” in 2016 and in 2017 “MANSIONS & FORIEGNS”.
