With his hometown of Chicago on his back and the sounds of soul in his roots, Brooklyn-based emcee R.O.E. blends an urban vibe with poetic lyricism and music that hits straight to the heart that will attract anyone with an affection for alternative hip hop.
PHENOM, born Teh’Ray Hale, learned to rhyme at the becoming age of 13 in the back streets of Chicago, Illinois. Unafraid to join in on the ciphers and emcee battling, Phenom instantly loved connecting clairvoyant lyrics and hurling potent metaphors quickly taking his opponents to school. Influenced by legendary artists like Rakim, Nas, Common and Black Thought, Phenom set his goal as becoming himself, a legendary artist. His passion immediately ignites audiences with a fire that is often compared to stage presence of Mos Def, Busta Rhymes and Ludacris.
Mathias & The Pirates
Mathias & The Pirates were formed out of unsettled waters. Mathias, Ms. Vizion & DJ LB were all finishing their time with Earthworms and Grea Tones respectively, and needed a new project to sink their brains into. They had all collaborated in the past and the results were great, so they quickly decided to join forces and make something beautiful for a world in turmoil.
The result is a finely crafted album entitled “Life of the Buzzard” – due out on FarFetched Records in the first quarter of 2013. Sweeping hooks and powerful lyrics intertwine with big, beastly production and live instrumentation to make for an album unlike anything you have in your ipod.. or CD case for the old heads out there.
