Yonas
Yonas
Hailing from the Bronx, Yonas is one of hip-hop's most-hyped emerging artists. Known for his incredibly unique style, the 25 year old makes it known that he is unlike anyone else in the game.


Too many times in music, and specifically in Hip-Hop and Rap, people feel the need to conform to what's popular. I have no intention of doing that. Instead I look to really mold my own style, and take risks musically"
Although Yonas is just breaking out, he has already built-up quite the list of accomplishments . In 2009, Yonas won a Billboard songwriting award for one of our favorite tracks "Banga". Additionally, his hit single "Shy Kidz" was featured on MTVu as well as Fuse TV. Just this past month, Yonas was featured on XXL Magazine's "The Break".

Yonas released his first mix tape, "I Am Us" back in 2010, and dropped his second project entitled "The Proven Theory" just over a year ago. Both have been very well received by fans and the multimillion YouTube view counters can vouch for that. "The Transition" is the title to Yonas' latest work, and is available for free now. Stay in touch with Yonas on Facebook and Twitter for all things Yonas, and be sure to check out his store for the latest from his apparel line.
Pell
Pell
Born in New Orleans, Pell was uprooted to Starkville, Mississippi by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 at the age of 15. Like many others in NOLA, Katrina decimated the neighborhood where Pell and his family lived, and as a result they were forced to relocate. "All I was able to take with me from New Orleans was the musical culture I grew up in, not my possessions, only memories and life lessons."

"Creating a new life from scratch teaches you resilience," adds Pell. And he's used his determination to pursue a music career. In high school, Pell created beats for his friends using a beat box that his dad gave him. Pell used those skills to help produce tracks on his first 2010 mixtape, "That Feel Good." It was that year that he also formed the collective That Feel Good (TFG), with some friends.

In 2012, Pell released his first collection of songs digitally as a free album titled The Wild. Shortly after, Pell released a single titled "The Actress" featuring TFG-affiliate Sir Flywalker. The song, an ode to college party life, amassed over 25,000 SoundCloud plays, leading to coverage in the Jackson Free Press, and music outlets such as YouHeardThatNew and NME. In addition, Pell started to open shows for artists such as Machine Gun Kelly, Joey Badass, Waka Flocka, and Casey Veggies.

Also last year, Pell released Calphonic, a free album hosted by DJ Wally Sparks that introduced the world to his laid-back attitude, ambient instrumentals, and nodding melodies. Riding the Calphonic wave into 2013, Pell is currently on the road on the Calphonic Tour featuring other members of TFG. In March of 2013, electro-pop duo Cherub released their highly anticipated 100 Bottles EP featuring Pell on the single 'Drowzzzy.' The momentum continued as Pell launched a video release for 'The Wild,' a track featured on Calphonic, marking his first single available via iTunes. The video premiered via RESPECT. Magazine and was also featured by Vibe and YouHeardThatNew.
The Specktators
The Specktators
Originally from Lansing, Michigan, this unsigned brother duo headed out West to chase a dream in Los Angeles, and that's exactly what they are doing.

After releasing four free mixtapes and a compilation project, The Specktators put out their debut album "The Parlay," at the end of 2013. The album hit #6 on the iTunes Hip-Hop charts and landed them on the Billboard Charts for the second time in their career. The album showcased not only their creative talents (Moe-T the producer; Packi the lyricist), but their vision for what the future of music should be.

The Specktators have shared the stage with many artists, including Snoop Dogg, Kid Ink, Machine Gun Kelly, Chiddy Bang, Rockie Fresh, and Timeflies; to name only a few.

Rude Boyz
Rude Boyz
Bloomington's own Kid Fresh and King OO-Z make up the RudeBoyz. Born Woodrow Bettis age 22, and Jamarr Simon age 22 linked up in late 2011 after being friends in High School. Both took to music at a young age and writing became natural to express how they felt... (Although Unreleased) The Rude Gang as they also go by have been on a viscous mission to the top of the game. The RudeBoyz are known for "Creep Music" where they use metaphors and punchlines to draw the listener into the creases of the beat. What sets them apart from other groups is they're ability to work together as a Team which makes them a "Deadly Duo." They use appealing beats, with good rhythm and flow to reach out to their audience and fans. And also speak a lot about their everyday lives in every track. Also known for they're "Goofy Behavior" , "Rude Humor" and Jokes!! That really gives them an edge in listener appeal. seeing how this days music has changed a lot since back in the day. They have opened for such artists... Kid Ink, Futuristic, Dizzy Wright, Lazie Bone, Hopsin, Yonas, and more.
Jay Trilogy
Jay Trilogy
Jay Trilogy is a very talented and skilled 15 year old Hip-Hop / Rap artist or "Emcee". The "Jay" part of his artist name comes from that exactly being his nick name from his Mother and Grandparents growing up, and still to this day. The "Trilogy" Part of the alias stands for "Mind", "Body", and last but most definitively not least "Soul". Jay Trilogy delivers his thoughts and opinions on life and the world, positive messages to the people and youth, and frequently demonstrations of intricate wordplay and flows leaving jaws dropped and the listener astounded. In conclusion, Jay Trilogy is not your average 15 year old Emcee.
