Allen Thomas arrives fresh from his show at the WRAS Fest where he opened for EarthGang. Expect music from his release Void Scrolls, as well as the new music he's always creating.
Yani Mo is a native of Lithonia, Ga who describes herself as "the Lioness with 9 lives" and creates music that reaches everything from hip-hop to neo-soul. There's no wonder why her influences range from Toni Morrison, Al Green, Lauryn Hill, and Dilla. With two projects already under her belt (Compound/Words and Space & Simplicity), Yani Mo has shifted her focus to hitting the road all over state. Catch her now while you can.
Southside Atlanta rapper Ziggy2Playa is ushering in an artistic resurrection in hip-hop by pairing hypnotic production with conscious subject matter that reflects his soulful and spiritual sensibilities. The African-born MC who speaks Igbo, is altering the current mood of the rap game by placing an ample emphasis on positivity over the glorified messages of sex, drugs and violence. Ziggy uses his lyrical and songwriting talents as a vehicle for change. Ziggy2Playa is working on his new project with acquired production heat from DunDeal, Left Brain (Odd Future), Asston Kusher and ProRow. Influenced by the wordplay of Outkast and UGK, as well as the genius pen skills of entertainers like The Dream, R. Kelly and Babyface, Ziggy2Playa acquired a distinct musical palette for quality hip-hop and r&b early on. As a result, the self-described "SouthernPlayalistic Soul" artist wants to press the reset button on the current state of the culture.
