Blackalicious is an American hip-hop duo from Sacramento, California, made up of rapper Gift of Gab and DJ/producer Chief Xcel. They are noted for Gift of Gab's often tongue-twisting, multisyllabic, complex rhymes and Chief Xcel's deemed "classic" beats. The duo have released four full-length albums (Nia in 1999, Blazing Arrow in 2002, The Craft in 2005, and Imani Vol. 1 in 2015).
Eastern Sunz provide a fresh take on sociopolitical issues, which has recently landed them the John Lennon Songwriting Contest grand prize, the Eco Arts Awards grand prize, first place in The International Songwriting Competition, The Independent Music Award for Album of the Year, and a grand prize finalist nomination for the Unsigned Only Music Competition (pending).
The Oregon hip hop duo consisting of Courage and TravisT have been recording and performing music together for well over a decade. They have worked with such artists as Grammy award winner Macklemore and ten-time Swedish Grammy award winner Promoe. Their dynamic live show often features a full band and has kept them touring across North America and overseas, as well as helped them make a name for themselves on the festival circuit.
Eastern Sunz offer a powerful alternative to hip-hop's status quo by bringing focus to an array of topics through entertaining music without alienating the casual listener. With a cult fan base fortified by press, radio play, and a grassroots movement, Eastern Sunz have expanded their reach to all corners of the world.
