G-Eazy
G-Eazy
Schooled in the bay, tested in New Orleans, G-Eazy isn't a stranger to paying dues. His live shows have turned heads from the smallest of Midwest clubs all the way up to arenas on dates with Lil Wayne, Big Sean, A$AP Rocky and Drake, among others.

Without label support G-Eazy has trekked across the US on multiple tours breaking hearts with his James Dean meets hip-hop vibe and unforgettable live shows. It's not hype. It's not a hit. It's not an image. It's all of the above. G reinterprets what he loves, not what everyone wants to hear, but in 2012 its looking like those two paths are starting to merge.

Gʼs been a fixture on the local New Orleans rap scene for a few years and more recently in the music blogosphere, but in the last few months his popularity has surged and as his national profile has grown exponentially. He recently opened up for A$AP Rocky at his sold-out New York City debut and supported Lil Wayne, Mystikal and others at the buzziest event of SXSW 2012– Lil Wayne's DEWeezy party. G's announcement on all 41 dates of the Van's Warped tour has solidified him as an artist to look out for in the coming months. But it all comes back to the live show, one New Orleans music blogger summed it up with, "the young crowd was reaching the levels of mass hysteria reserved for the 50s and 60s rock ʻnʼ roll legends to whom G-Eazy has been paying so much homage…"
Ground Up
Ground Up
Ground Up® is a hip-hop trio that resides in Philadelphia. The group members include a producer that goes by Bij Lincs; whose eccentric style and uncanny musical talent is complimentary to the witty wordplay and thoughtful lyrics of the two MC's, AZAR & MALAKAI. The combination of relentless work as well as a grass-roots marketing strategy has enabled the group to accumulate fans exponentially while simultaneously releasing quality music. Along the way, Ground Up has grown notorious for its live shows; touring at school such as WVU, Temple U, West Chester, UVA, Cornell, Cheyney U, Pittsburgh U, Lincoln U to name a few. Ground Up has also opened up for renowned artists such as Wu-Tang Clan, Asher Roth, Rick Ross, Chiddy Bang, The Nappy Roots, Meek Millz, Gucci Mane, and Chris Webby. With the help of their loyal fans, the strong team behind them, and the group's ability to stay creative, it seems nothing will stop Bij Lincs, AZAR, or MALAKAI from making music their way – from the Ground Up.Support the Ground Up movement!
