Joyner Lucas first captured national attention with the complex verbal gymnastics of 2014’s “Backwords,” followed in 2015 by his debut mixtape, “ALONG CAME JOYNER” and its extraordinary breakthrough single, “Ross Capicchioni.” The track – and its provocative companion visual – chronicles the true story of a Detroit gang shooting, told from the perspectives of both the teenage victim and the shooter himself. “Ross Capicchioni” drew widespread acclaim in throughout the hip-hop universe, with the legendary Busta Rhymes declaring himself so “amazed…I can’t even put it into words.” The epic video proved a viral sensation, with over 5.3 million streams at YouTube alone.

Lucas continued to make his bones with a memorable spot on the 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher, collaborations alongside such like-minded artists as Jarren Benton, Locksmith, TechN9ne, and Logic, as well as a pair of remarkably strong singles, “Happy Birthday” and “I’m Sorry,” both of which saw him displaying astonishing lyrical skills and a striking social consciousness. “I’m Sorry” – included on “508-507-2209” – has proven Lucas’ biggest viral success thus far, now approaching 17 million individual views at YouTube alone. Today he continues to garner national attention, but this time it’s with his newest phenomenon, “I’m Not Racist” – in which highlights the brutal conversation on racism that no one wants to have. Within a week of its release the video has already been viewed over 9 million times & has received much praise from the likes of CNN, XXL, Complex, Huffington Post and more.
Dizzy Wright
Dizzy Wright
The Las Vegas-based rapper began rapping at just 8 years old with the group "DaFuture" with his brother and very close friend – his mother wrote his raps at the time. "My Mom was like Joe Jackson," says Wright, "She was a concert promoter so I was exposed to the music industry early – we even did youth reporting at... major awards shows like the BET Awards."

At 17-years old with several years of experience Dizzy decided to take his rap career seriously. Formerly known as Dizzy D Flashy, Dizzy was a winner on BET's "Wild Out Wednesdays," winner of the Sheikh Music "Rip the Mic" Competition and released 5 mixtapes, which lead him to rack up over 1-million views on YouTube. Wright wants for people to learn something when they listen to his music by discussing situations that his fans can relate to. "The internet allowed me to see what my music did to people – I like being able to see the response. When you rap, you have a voice and this is how I balance my thoughts," says Wright.

In November 2011, Wright signed to Funk Volume after being discovered at the Sheikh Music "Rip the Mic" Competition in 2010. Impressed by his smooth flow, confident stage presence and energy that won over the crowd, Funk Volume knew he was a special talent and would be valuable addition to the team. On the heels of his latest mixtape "Soul Searchin' Next Level," Wright will release "Smoke Out Conversations" on February 20th, and says the tape was inspired by Don Miguel Ruiz's widespread book, "The Four Agreements." "I live the four agreements. The first agreement is be impeccable with your word. People will learn something from this mixtape.
Marlon Craft
Marlon Craft
Marlon Craft is a rapper and artist from New York City. Born in Hell's Kitchen, son of a jazz musician, Craft's rise is defined by musical variance and New York realism. Fitting hard-hitting social commentary into a diverse set of sounds, Craft's vocal pace matches and enhances mixes of live instrumentation with boom-bap drums at electronic intervals.

It is this contemporary relevancy paired with a deep respect for the history and culture of hip-hop (and its web of influences) that attracted a world-wide fan-base, and a break-out The Tunnel's End debut project, earning #2 on the iTunes hip-hop charts and #8 across all genres in its first week.

At once enigmatic and authentic, with sold out shows and a series of EPs to be released in early 2018, Craft's ascendance is well on its way.
