Greg "Olskool Ice-Gre" Lewis

Who is Greg "Olskool Ice-Gre" Lewis? That depends on who you ask because he is a man of many concentrations. If you ask him, he'll simply say a creative. A self published Author, Speaker, Music and Entertainment Industry Professional, A&R, Songwriter, Personal Manager, Artist (Chicago Hip Hop Legend) and overall positive spirit, Greg has remained consistent in his endeavors as an entrepreneur, businessman and visionary. One of his proudest accomplishments is the self published motivational memoir titled "I Refuse To Quit! The Autobiography of A Dreamer." The book is available in all formats on Amazon but you can visit for a more in-depth view of the author as well as a variety of related offerings such as The Dream Box. 


Olskool, as he's professionally known, is the Founder of Honest Management LLC., Head of Artist Relations at Eclipse Distro, on the Advisory Board for the Hollywood Independent Music Awards and a proud graduate of one of the most recognized HBCU's, THEE illustrious Jackson State University. He holds a bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts from the institution and is an active Alumni who remains connected to the university in various capacities. Higher education is something Olskool actively encourages but doesn't feel is mandatory. Chasing dreams on the other hand is something he does feel is mandatory. Everything he's done, currently doing and plans to do is connected to a dream. An example of this is a creative endeavor he took on as Producer of a one on one, candid conversation, interview show, called IN A SESSION. Acquired by Revolt, the show aired summer 2022. This was one of the television and film initiatives backed by the company. It began with the creation and development of the documentary film We Paid Let Us In! The Legend of Abstract Mindstate, directed by Emmy Award Winning Television Producer Trizonna McClendon. In 2022 the film was an official selection at Dances With Films Los Angeles (DWFLA), San Antonio Black International Film Festival (SABIFF) and nominated Best Documentary Feature Film at Love & Hope International Film Festival (L'HIFF) in Barcelona.

As an artist, Olskool Ice-Gre  released an album in late 2021 titled Dreams Still Inspire with his group Abstract Mindstate. The project was produced entirely by Ye (formerly Kanye West) and released via his platform YZY SND. The album was highlighted in various music and culture publications such as; Rolling Stone (2x), Complex, Fader, Highsnobiety, Rolling Out, HYPEBEAST, Chicago Tribune and many more. In March of the following year, Abstract Mindstate co-headlined a domestic tour with the legendary Detroit Hip Hop group Slum Village. In December of 2021 both A.M and SV executed a few spot date performances called The Warm Up to prepare themselves for the tour that later took place. As the male half of the only male/female duo in Hip Hop, Olskool Ice-Gre is living out one of his earliest dreams with the return of Abstract Mindstate. Dreams Still Inspire stands as the only album produced in it's entirety by the artist formerly known as Kanye West since his debut The College Dropout. To date, Abstract Mindstate are the only act to officially release a project on YZY SND (Yeezy Sound), which is a feat within itself.
