New Orleans-based gangsta rapper Juvenile was born Terius Gray. After beginning his performing career in his teens, he released a 1995 album on Warlock titled Being Myself. He eventually crossed paths with Cash Money label owners Ronald "Suga Slim" and Brian "Baby" Williams, who issued 1996's Solja Rags; the album became a major underground hit and set the stage for the release of 1998's 400 Degreez. In 1999, with Juvenile's popularity growing, Solja Rags was reissued nationally, and Warlock jumped on the bandwagon with a remixed version of Being Myself. The year ended with the release of a new studio effort, Tha G-Code, followed by Project English two years later in 2001. In 2002 he left Cash Money and formed his own collective, the UTP Playas (Uptown Project Playas), with whom he recorded a posse album, The Compilation. The album went nowhere and a year later he was back on Cash Money and releasing Juve the Great, which featured the chart-topping hit "Slow Motion." The 2005 "Noila Clap" single from the UTP Playas was another big track, and Juvenile was ready once again to shop for a new label. As he was signing a new contract with Asylum, his Slidell, Louisiana home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The hurricane and its grim aftermath were hot topics on his chart-topping 2006 album Reality Check. His next two albums -- Cocky & Confident (2009) and Beast Mode (2010) -- featured much lighter material. In 2011 he released Rejuvenation, an album primarily produced by Mannie Fresh.

Born in the U.K. But hailing from Nashville, KDSML merges the British Isles love for electronic progressivism with the South's love for the big, big bass tying them together with a turntablist's fleet fingers and an ear-to-ear grin that's as contagious as it is honest.

Hip-Hop Jam band based outta Nashville with a goal of inspiring creativity and self-expression!
Coloring the world thru our music.
From the opening bars of their debut LP, you can tell AJ & The Jiggawatts came to play rough. In a world where mid tempo and middle of the road soul permeates the airwaves, this crew of G.E.D. Soul killers are drawing a line in the sand by making soul music that hits harder, faster and nastier than just about anyone in the game today. AJ Eason's gin soaked vocal howls drip with a carefree carousing not unlike that of a street smart hustler making moves to make ends meet. The band follows suit with highly syncopated melodics, often at breakneck speed, all while maintaining an almost inhuman tightness. Toss all of these elements into a highball glass and garnish with a pinch of rock n' soul and you've got the makings for a serious raw soul cocktail.
By blending old school charm with a mysterious new edge, Trapped On Earth has no limits for the sounds they will create

Moving from Oklahoma to Nashville, TN in 2003 to pursue her music career, Kelsey Muse is blessed to have accomplished at a young age what many take a lifetime to achieve. In 2009, she started out as a featured artist/actress in the TV show series, "iShine Knect" along with fellow artists like Jamie Grace & Luke Benward. At 17, she became an award winning writer by Song Circle (Billboard & Emi). As a performer she was honored to be chosen to showcase for three divisions of the NACA College Circuit in 2010. "Dear You" was a featured song for the Nick @Nite TV show, "Hollywood Heights" in 2012.
Kelsey sings and raps, writes and plays several instruments. A sonic pioneer of rare caliber, she fuses a wide range of influences, spanning from Jimi Hendrix and Kid Cudi to Alanis Morissette and Sia. Her sound is sexy, and the way her voice weaves in and out of the sonic landscape is fresh and mesmerizing. As a writer, she works to translate complicated ideas into simple phrases. “I approached the EP as if I were writing a novella,” she explains. “Whatever it is, I’m not afraid to talk about it.” She is a provocateur, the kind that can shine a light on your darkest and most subtle psychological tick. Without effort she is able to pull you through the mirror.
Kelsey has her own unique, edgy pop/hip-hop sound and a knack for taking past hits and re-arranging and reviving them to make them huge crowd pleasers once again. Her original songs grab you as they talk about real-life experience that everyone can relate to.
Her song “1994” channels the spirit of that year. Her vocal delivery fuses hip hop, rock, and pop. The music is up-tempo and dripping with attitude. Another song, "Static Life" is pulsing with a fierce sexuality, with a hint of Amy Winehouse mingled with Gwen Stefani in the vocals, and Gorillaz in the music. It sounds like a head-bobbing classic.
