DANNY BROWN

In an era of industry-obsessed MCs, interchangeable hashtag raps, and "viral" everything, it has become increasingly difficult to find a true original in the rap game. Yet ask anyone who's been paying attention and they'll tell you: Danny Brown is that dude. In 2011 the Motor City MC teamed up with Fool's Gold Records and released XXX, a tour-de-force concept record about hedonism, growing up, and Detroit, which took listeners on a profane and psychedelic journey through his own uncensored id. After a year of universal critical acclaim - from Spin naming XXX Rap Album Of The Year to Danny covering the Metro Times and Real Detroit in the same week as their Artist Of The Year - Danny continues to spread his irreverent gospel worldwide with extensive touring and even more unrestrained, unstoppable rhymes.

You know that girl at that party who is being kind of annoying but it's like whatever she's probably drunk and looking for attention so we'll engage her in conversation because it's amusing and she'll probably embarrass herself by telling way too much about her personal life? It's like that kinda, except she turns out to be really creepy and makes you never want to talk to her again.

AWTHNTKTS

The AWTHNTKTS (AW•THN•T•KTS) have been on their grind to spread the all-out fuckery that remains so persistent in their music and live performance. Striving off the strength of ION's release of "Coordinates" in December 2011, The AWTHNTKTS are quickly becoming the face of Iowa City Hip-Hop, opening for independent artists such as Freddie Gibbs, Prof, Louis Logic, Open Mike Eagle, Black Milk, Mac Lethal, Carnage the Executioner, Ceschi Ramos, No Bird Sing, DJ Abilities, and Kristoff Krane. Each member falls into their own realm of lyrical wit & conduct with a common goal to put Iowa City back on the map for local AND touring Hip-Hop heads. In anticipation of the debut release of "Concrete Pillows" from Iowa City veteran johndope and "Drifter" from Romulan which is also scheduled to drop in 2013, The AWTHNTKTS are eager to show the world how hip hop is done in the heart of the nation. In collaboration with Iowa City's own WFKU radio and illstillsmile productions.
