Kuf Knotz has been making a name for himself as a member of some of Philly's most cutting-edge alternative rap crews; first as a founding member of the BurnDown All-Stars, and more recently, his own group, hip-hop/soul collective The Hustle. Knotz, a.k.a. Ty Green, is now making his solo career top priority, and with Boombox Logic, he's created a diverse, far-reaching collection that underscores the rapper's eclectic tastes.
Judah Priest, a native Philadelphian, now resides in New York City, is an avid poet and lyricist. Although he began rapping when he was 7 years old, he wanted to do things his own way, inspired by a cousin, Priest begun rapping around his friends and in local talent show cases.
Living most of his life in Philly; surrounded by the influence of sex, money, drugs, popularity, and the constant rush for fame. He began to put his hope in the wrong things such as selling drugs, sexual immorality, and living a violent lifestyle. While on the road to becoming a product of his environment, he still wanted to be successful. Attempting to do so, Priest became a member of Chamber Musik Records working with Joey “G Clef” Cavaseno. Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Buddha Monk best friend & brother of Old Dirty Bastard took Priest under his wing and made him a key family member of Brooklyn Zu.

In an oversaturated market with everyone vying to be the "ext to blow", the story of 22-year old DMV native De'Ko (born KoKou meaning Wednesday) is a refreshing exception to the overnight celebrity road to success. The first artist hailing from the Live Legendary camp has distinguished himself through a hard-work approach to the game-no small feat considering he's performed with a few hip-hop notables already.
Inspired by the rawness of 90's hip-hop, the art of storytelling, and dope beats De'Ko is on a mission to bring the essence of good music back. A music enthusiast, De'ko is influenced by an array of styles from poetry to jazz. With parents from West Africa (Togo) De'Ko was exposed to a rich culture early in life. Infusing his culture into the music makes for an energized performance and a unique sound that stands outs from the crowd.
De'Ko moved to Philadelphia to study fashion marketing at The Art Institute of Philadelphia. This would lead to a chance meeting of producer Garnett Hayes (Geez Seven).one of the co-founders of Live Legendary. This meeting catapulted De'Ko's love for music and really started him thinking about his talents and where it could take him. De'Ko began setting his poetry to music and honing his style. As he listened and really studied his craft he took that energy and really began to attack the craft like a 9-5 job. De'Ko rhymes took a life of its own and partnering it with the production of Geez made for magic in the studio.
De'Ko was later featured on the EP, The Dream Sequence receiving solid reviews from several noted hip-hop blogs. With the momentum of decent reviews De'Ko is dropped the video 'All Black Everything"ft. Finesse co-founder of Live Legendary. De'Ko is preparing his EP Four Holes To a Button along with the Live Legendary compilation mix-tape slated for release Spring 2013.
