Chiddy Bang: Fresh off their win for “BEST VIDEO” at the 2011 MTV Woodie awards Chiddy Bang is a Philly based duo comprised of Chiddy (emcee) and Xaphoon Jones (DJ/producer) who combine elements of indie rock and electronica with some good ole fashioned “spittin” and freestyle rap. The result has been described by some as a “hipster’s wet dream,” and has propelled them to worldwide success. Chiddy Bang’s infectious sound has gained them tremendous buzz online making them one of the top 10 most blogged about artists on the entire internet. After several acclaimed mixtapes, Chiddy Bang scored a deal with EMI Music/Virgin Records. Their debut single “Opposite of Adults” has sold over one million unites worldwide and has been certified Platinum and Gold in several countries. They have just finished work on their debut album BREAKFAST which will be released this summer.
Pusha T: Recently signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music label, Pusha T is widely known as one half of critically acclaimed Virginia Beach, VA hip hop duo, Clipse, along with brother and fellow rapper Malice. In collaboration with The Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams, the duo released a number of hits in the early 2000s including “Gridin’”, “When The Last Time” and a verse on Justin Timberlake’s first solo single “Like I Love You”. Pusha T was recently featured on Kanye West’s smash hit “Runaway” and released “My God”, the first single from his upcoming mixtape, Fear of God. The track has only raised excitement for the mixtape as well as his G.O.O.D. Music debut.
Dev: Pop Rap newcomer, Dev gained notoriety when The Far East Movement borrowed from her track, “Booty Bounce” for their hit song “Like A G6,” which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Born and raised in California, she was discovered by the production team The Cataracs after posting a cover of an Amy Winehouse song on MySpace. Dev is signed to Universal Republic Records and will release her debut album this spring.
Ninjasonik: Composed of DJ Roofeo and vocalists Jah-Jah and Telli, Ninjasonik is a post-modern music group that mixes the stylings of hip hop culture with the attitude of punk music. Originating in Brooklyn, for the past three years their live shows have gained notoriety in both the indie rock and hip hop scenes. A hotbed for spontaneity and creativity, the groups is known as much for their music as their street slag and fashion. At the heart of everything is their live show where the trio truly demonstrates their ability to fully engage audiences with their high energy performances.
