    Once one of the leading rappers on Master P's No Limit record label, Mystikal quickly evolved beyond the label's clichéd thug trappings and found himself one of the Dirty South's most recognized rappers, alongside the likes of Juvenile and Ludacris. Like No Limit itself, Mystikal is a New Orleans native. He released an eponymous debut on the independent label Big Boy in June 1995. It earned the attention of Jive Records, who signed him later that year. His official major-label debut, Mind of Mystikal, was released in October 1996 and became a major hit in the rap underground, falling just short of going gold.

    The MC then hooked up with Master P and No Limit, along with the label's Beats by the Pound production team. This union produced Unpredictable, which was released in November 1997 and helped the rapper build a substantial following. It peaked at number one on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, reached number three on the Billboard 200, and eventually went platinum. Ghetto Fabulous, also driven by Beats by the Pound, followed in December 1998; it topped the R&B/Hip Hop Chart as well and debuted at number five on the Billboard 200. Despite a move to the Jive label, Mystikal wasted no time in issuing a follow-up. Let's Get Ready appeared in September 2000 and went double platinum. Driven by the James Brown-like Neptunes production "Shake Ya Ass" as a lead single -- an MTV staple before the album even hit the streets -- the album featured a vast range of productions from Earthtone III, Bink!, and the Medicine Men (a newer incarnation of Beats by the Pound). Let's Get Ready demonstrated the wide-reaching ambitions that had only been hinted at in previous releases. Mystikal made his unique rhyme delivery accessible enough to reach a significantly wider audience.

    Mystikal released his sixth album, Tarantula, in December 2001. "Bouncin' Back (Bumpin' Me Against the Wall)," another funky Neptunes collaboration, was one of 2002's hottest singles. The following year, Mystikal garnered Grammy nominations in the categories of Best Male Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Album. Tarantuala eventually reached gold status but didn't come close to eclipsing his most popular output. From January 2004 through January 2010, the rapper served a prison term for sexual battery. Shortly after he regained his freedom, he collaborated with one-time No Limit labelmate Fiend, as well as R&B singer Lloyd, and performed at the 2011 Gathering of the Juggalos festival. Plans for a seventh album were derailed by more issues with the law. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Andy Kellman, Rovi

    DJ Jubilee is a leader of the New Orleans bounce movement and stands for all things New Orleans. From call and response jams like “Get It Ready” and “Back That Thang Up” to his newest hit “GitOnDaFlur”, DJ Jubilee is the indisputable king of bounce.

    Born Jerome Temple and long-time Special Education teacher at a local high school, Jubilee was discovered by area producers Earl J. Mackie and Henry F. Holden while performing at a school dance. He soon signed to their Take Fo' Records label. DJ Jubilee's debut cassette, Stop Pause, appeared in 1995, followed later that same year by the full-length DJ Jubilee & Cartoon Drew. After returning in 1996 with 20 Years in the Jets, he issued Take It to the St. Thomas two years later.

    To Be Continued Brass Band, also known as TBC, is a jazz band formed in 2002 by young men who grew up in the 7th and 9th Wards in New Orleans, Louisiana. They sought to avoid the life that befell many of their friends and classmates involving drugs and violence by creating a jazz and brass band. The band started at Carver Senior High School in New Orleans where the band's eventual leader and tuba player, Jason Slack, borrowed instruments from Carver's band director. The band received permission from Carver's principal to play a set on the school grounds. The school's reaction simply was "wow," and the TBC Brass Band was on its way. 


    With no manager and no guaranteed gigs, the band began performing on the streets of New Orleans, establishing a regular presence on the legendary corner of Bourbon and Canal in the French Quarter. The band quickly became popular with hordes of fans flocking regularly to dance with the group on their established street corner stage.  

     

    In early 2005, Grammy-Award winning hip-hop group The Roots learned of TBC and took the band under its wing, inviting TBC to play with them in concert. 
     

    In the summer of 2005, The Roots began working with TBC. The Roots' Questlove Thompson stated that TBC's "music was extremely impressive". According to Thompson, TBC "took us back to our roots working out on South Street at Passyunk [in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania], when we were praying that somebody like a Kenny Gamble would come along to discover us." 
     

    In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, destroying the band’s homes and instruments and scattering them throughout the U.S. Six months later, band members returned to New Orleans, renting hotel rooms with money made performing on the streets just to be able and to be together again playing music in their hometown. A feature-length documentary movie about the band was produced entitled ‘From the Mouthpiece on Back’. The hip hop group ‘The Roots’ are co-executive producers and award-winning actress Kerry Washington narrates the movie. The American Film Institute has called the movie "inspiring,", and other reviewers have deemed the movie "incredible,” and described its teenage jazz musician subjects as “charming as hell, funny, . . . and take everything that’s thrown at them with unimaginable spirit and focus.” 
     

    Today, TBC continues to play its amazing music in New Orleans as well as touring internationally. TBC music is spreading globally, delighting fans with their unique melodic brand of brass jazz music.  In addition, TBC is one of the top requested bands in the time-honored New Orleans tradition known as "the second line". The band has become a staple on the second line parade scene, leading hundreds of dancing paraders through the streets on any given Sunday in this only-in-New Orleans tradition.
