California up-and-comer Ab-Soul has created a street album chronicling his life as a hip-hop buzzmaker on the verge of his big break. As member of the west coast supergroup Black Hippy, Ab-Soul is regularly cited as one of LA's top underground rappers.
Influenced by the indie yet street attitudes of crew like Black Hippy, rapper Joey Bada$$ rose to fame by releasing mixtapes and forming his own hip-hop collective, Pro Era. Born in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn, Joey began performing under the name JayOhVee, but changed it to Joey Bada$$ before signing his Pro Era crew to the Cinematic Music label in 2012. It was the same year Joey made his solo debut with the mixtape 1999, which was followed in 2013 by the mixtape Summer Knights. Later that year he made his official debut when the Summer Knights EP landed, featuring four tracks from the mixtape of the same name.
The Underachievers are a hip-hop duo from Flatbush Avenue, NY consisting of Issa Dash and AK. They are currently signed to Flying Lotus' label Brainfeeder and released their debut mixtape INDIGOISM on February 1, 2013. These guys are lookin to spark a revolution in this rap game, and just in time seeing as the Age of Enlightenment is upon us.
