Myah J (Twitter)

Representing the wonderful City of Atlanta, former model Myah J meets Hip Hop. From her days of doing various photo shoots, Myah J realized her love for the camera. Appearing in a number of Men Magazines such as TearSheet, Sweets, Silk, BlockDymes, FBM, and even FEDs, Myah J came to experience the Music Industry. Listen to her song “Pull Up” below.

AJ Taylor (Facebook)

Flatbush, Brooklyn’s own AJ Taylor (F.K.A.Black Astonish) is a 21 yr old emcee, producer. AJ’s palatable music productions, visual lyricism, and stage presence beyond his time. Recently credited by one of hip hop’s legends as being ‘the future Ronald Isley of rap’ is an undisputed truth which makes AJ an artist to watch in 2017. Listen to “Droptop” below.

MC Bravado (Twitter)

MC Bravado is a transcendent rap artist whose origins are in the NYC area; today, he works and resides in Baltimore, Maryland as a high school English Teacher. He’s defined by his conceptual ingenuity and impassioned defense of the “pen game.” “This is Gold” is the second single and first visual release off MC Bravado’s latest album: Hip-Hop* (released 3/3/17 courtesy of Soulspazm). Watch the visual below.

The Seige (Facebook)

The Seige is Taz Conley on vocals and Riley Taylor on production. Two young creative musicians who left their hometowns in pursuit of their own personal goals and ended up finding more than just each other in the land of Lost Angels. The video features their conventional dark and aggressive aesthetic but with some added wacky satire. Watch “Boing Boing” below and get lit!


 Donte Peace (Facebook)

“Rebellious” finds the Seattle rapper diving into new territory, both musically and visually, with an approach that deftly mixes the most menacing parts of Houston chopped and screwed, Memphis horrorcore, and Compton G-funk.
