    J.Lately distinguishes himself as an emcee with his soulful style and laid back flow. A true appreciation for music along with the unique ability to put everyday life into a relatable perspective has allowed him to flourish in the local Bay Area scene and beyond.

A relentless drive has kept Lately on tour across the country with artists such as Zion I, Locksmith, and A-Plus of the Hieroglyphics.

  • Leon the God

    Leon the God

    Hip-Hop/Rap

    New Orleans MC/producer, Leon the God, imbues his music with a wisdom and timelessness that belies his youth. He aggressively delivers spiritually-themed lyrics atop his own psychedelic production, creating a sound that carries on the tradition of conscious, futuristic hip hop. Since 2015, Leon has released two EPs, "Genesis" and "Godhop[e]", and built up an audience through selective local performances, official showcases at various festivals (SxSW, A3C), and mini-tours of the East and West Coasts. In February 2017, Leon released his third EP, "Nova", and plans to tour the Deep South to support it. He also recently released the "Ask and You'll Receive EP".

  • Odessa Kane

    Odessa Kane

    Urban

    There is a kindness that refuses to be mistaken as weakness. There is a compassion that refuses to be mistaken as passivity. There is an artistry that refuses to be mistaken as fluff. There is an emcee who refuses to be mistaken as a flat caricature of a rapper. His name is Odessa Kane. He is a lot of things, but weak, passive, fluffy, and flat are not among the adjectives likely to precede his name in a sentence. The Southeast San Diego native has earned the respect of SD’s hip hop community over the past two decades, a respect that has been garnered behind the mic for sure, but also as a father, organizer and more. Odessa Kane is a socially and politically-charged emcee and he has worked with some of the most notorious hip hop crews in SD, including Masters of the Universe and Red Lotus Klan. Kane has a thorough catalogue, and is only getting better.

  • 18Scales

    18Scales

    Urban

    With the first few notes, 18 Sense’ ethereal production draws you “Way Out Here” as Ric Scales’ vocals lull listeners along the same path, pulling them into the world created by Leave it all Behind. The FreEP displays, in equal measure, the versatility of CAliens’ 18 Sense as a producer, and the same of the FRESHstate’s Ric Scales as an emcee, a storyteller, and social commentator. Scales’ register sits in that voice-you-could-listen-to-all-day range, akin to that of Common or Mos Def – you just don’t get tired of listening to him. While his tone keeps him listenable for multiple spins in a row, it is Ric Scales’ cadences, intricate rhyme schemes, delivery, style and unique angle on common themes that is sure to keep you coming back for more…

  • Miki Vale
