Mother Nature
Mother Nature
Mother Nature is the powerful and undeniable energy of emcees Klevah and T.R.U.T.H. Never afraid to speak on societal ills, these creatives masterfully weave political rhetoric into music that you can party to. The Chicago-based emcees fuse hard-hitting HipHop, melodic rhythms and boundless lyricism to raise the frequency of our collective conscience. Well on their way, Mother Nature is a dynamic force of Black womanhood. Their mission is to be a fearless force in HipHop through peace and love.
DOPEKATZ
DOPEKATZ
Myq Moon and Dj Mr.Ree decided to join forces in late 2015 and have been making music ever since. Between the two of them, they've been in the scene for over 10 years and its all about house music.
NDPNDNT
NDPNDNT
Daniel “NDPNDNT” Weisberg is more than just another rapper from Chicago, he’s a future revolutionary, and what others have expressed as the "voice" of the city of Chicago. NDPNDNT paints and delivers a very painful, but also, free and therapeutic honesty in his music. For NDPNDNT, entertaining through the arts of music is how he helps people get over their own situations, while still staying true to his own.

This young man, at only 23 years of age, depicts a different view of the world and is on a mission to destroy stereotypes of criticism that Hip Hop is a violent, "gangster rap" formed genre filled with nothing but negativity. With his poetic choice of words, catchy hooks, thought provoking sound and the ability to do it without a single curse word, NDPNDNT is bound to stand out.

NDPNDNT recently released his project "Voiceless". "Free Me," a single from the "Voiceless" project, was premiered on the top Chicago blog, "Lyrical Lemonade" and on Soundcloud. Some of his notable featured performances include: Taste of Chicago 2018, ABC7 Chicago, 2017 Chicago Blues Fest 2017, Second City, Common's "AAHH! Fest", SXSW, A3C Fest, and the recently opened Apple Store in downtown Chicago. NDPNDNT found success joining Kanye and Rhyme Fest's Donda's House, and has been mentored by artists, such as: ADD-2, Defcee, Twone Gabz, Rhymefest, and more.

The Punch
The Punch
The Punch is often described as "secret pop" which is a fitting description for this mash-up of musical stylings we've seen before, but never see quite like this. Propelled by driving drums and fuzzed out bass lines and rounded out with vocal harmonies and raspy vocals, serve to make pretty what would otherwise be a sludgy, grunge fest. It's like 1997 called and you don't even feel bad, but instead feel like you might have found the last hope to save rock and roll...
