Russell “D-Pryde” LLantino is an 18-year-old Canadian rapper/singer/songwriter with a fan base that extends to over 250,000 with over 46.5 million YouTube views to prove it. The Toronto Filipino rapper/singer released a series of wildly popular “freeverses”, covers, and originals building his fanbase along the way. With one successful mixtape released in 2011, his label, Mars Music Group is
preparing to release his second mixtape, Flagship (June 3, 2012) as well as his debut commercial EP this summer. Often compared to a cross between Drake and Eminem, D-Pryde is the next superstar to come out of Canada and take on the music world.

Signed to Mars Music Group in 2010, D-Pryde likes to refer to his music as “Hip-Pop” for his infectious singing melodies intertwined with his clever lyrical delivery. D-Pryde has turned into a YouTube phenomenon being the # 8 most viewed artist in Canada (April 2012) and the # 43 most viewed artists worldwide (April 2012). He also maintains steady visibility thru social media including over 81,000 Twitter followers and 160,000 Facebook fans. Being from Filipino descent D-Pryde represents a huge worldwide population that is ready to call hip-hop as their own.

With the release of his critically acclaimed mixtape Mars in 2011, D-Pryde was asked to join J Cole on his Canadian leg of the tour. This is where he really refined his performance skills to sold out shows nightly. With his busy touring and
recording schedule he continues to be grounded to his family in Toronto but is on a mission to get his music heard. “This new album is basically a story of how my life changed since signing my deal” said D-Pryde. “I was a kid that grew up too fast; so with all I learned, I flushed all that knowledge and struggle into these songs. Flagship is for my fans who continue to grow with me.”

D-Pryde and Mars Music Group partnered up with leading hip-hop and pop producers to help define the D-Pryde sound. Featured producers include Reefa (The Game, Fabolous, Rick Ross), August Rigo (Justin Bieber, Musiq
Soulchild), and talented newcomer Den-Z for this new album. Once you listen to Flagship you’ll be hooked. Once you hear songs like “Mistress”, “Bottom Dollar” and “Hometown” you’ll be addicted to his flow, pop sensibility and witty lyrical play. Stay tuned to witness the birth of a superstar.

Cypher Clique

Delaware is not really known for much, but well...tax free shopping, and beach life. The music scene isn't much to check for also. This hip-hop trio hopes to change that soon. Cypher Clique, consisting of three MC’s known as Relay (22), Mic Anthony(21), & Rapper/Producer D-Major(20). They first met collectively in 2007 just making music as a hobby in high school, but as time progressed, so did their skills, and were strongly advised by peers to take it to the next level. In 2009 they dropped their official debut mixtape “The Mattress” hosted by DJ Stupac. The mixtape was featured on a couple big blogs such as Ddotomen.com & iamashelyoutrageous.com with a warm reception. A year later, they released another project entitled “June 23rd”, and also began doing shows in the tri-state area, but the road was a rocky one. Finally in feb of 2011, their 1st taste of the main stage came about when they were picked among 30 acts to open up for Mac Miller’s "Incredibly Dope Tour" stop in PA. Since then the trio has been on countless websties such as hotnewhiphop & digitaldripped.com, released a top 8 mixtape in 2011 called “The Show” and have opened up for many other acts such as Meek Mill, Tayyib Ali, Roscoe Dash, Wale, Waxx, Diggy Simmons, New Boyz, A$AP Rocky & Action Bronson. With a new project called "The Thirst Tape" dropping this fall, the future is bright for this young trio as they grind their way to the top!
