Talib Kweli
Talib Kweli
The Brooklyn-based MC earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years.

“I’m a touring artist. I’m an artist that’s internationally known. I’m not just a local artist at this point in my career. I’m cognizant of the fact that what I do is beyond where it started. I’m trying to reach the apex of where I am now, but without turning my back on or dismissing what I’ve done before.”

After nearly 20 years of releasing mesmerizing music, Talib Kweli stands as one of the world’s most talented and most accomplished Hip Hop artists. Whether working with Mos Def as one-half of Black Star, partnering with producer Hi-Tek for Reflection Eternal, releasing landmark solo material or collaborating with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Just Blaze, J Dilla, or Madlib, Kweli commands attention by delivering top-tier lyricism, crafting captivating stories and showing the ability to rhyme over virtually any type of instrumental.

In 2011, Kweli founded Javotti Media, which is self-defined as “a platform for independent thinkers and doers.” Kweli has set out to make Javotti Media (which released his 2011 album, Gutter Rainbows, and is named after his paternal grandmother) into a media powerhouse that releases music, films and books.

DJ Spintelect
DJ Spintelect
Spin’s musical knowledge, diverse collection and mixology skills have landed him sold out shows on a regular basis as the DJ savant has spun in every major city in the United States. In addition to touring, Spin is also known for regularly rocking massive music festivals, Like SXSW and Rock The Bells. The challenge of rocking crowds of tens of thousands of people is no easy task, yet our favorite DJ seems to do it effortlessly. The turntable enthusiast might strike you as a fairly new force in this industry, but nothing could be further from the truth. Initially, accompanying Hip Hop heavyweights like, Talib Kweli on global tours throughout The States, Europe and Asia, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on national arena tours, by the age of 27, Spin has gained a momentum that is an undeniable force to be reckoned with.
Time

Time was deemed the future of independent hip-hop by VICE and URB Mag. He has been called the Radiohead of rap and the love child of Neil Young and Andre 3000. He was named one of URB's next 100 artists in alongside Drake, Kid Cudi, and U-N-I. He has done songs with Kool Keith, Sole, and Onry Ozzborn and engineering work for Common.
