    George Watsky is a rapper, writer and performer from San Francisco now living in Los Angeles. A versatile lyricist who switches between silly and serious, technically complex and simply heartfelt, George won the Brave New Voices National Poetry Slam in 2006. Immediately after he appeared on the final season of Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry in 2007 while a college freshman himself he subsequently performed at over 150 universities across the country. Rapping all the while under the name ‘Watsky,’ George self-released the barely-heard jazz-hip hop record ‘Invisible Inc’ in 2007 and the self-titled ‘Watsky’ in 2010, which peaked at #7 on the iTunes hip hop charts. In January 2011 George’s fast rapping went viral and led to two appearances on the Ellen Show, a slot on Last Call with Carson Daly, and an exploding online profile. George has performed at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal, the NAACP Image Awards on FOX, three times at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and has been featured in XXL, Billboard Magazine, and the New York Times Magazine. Watsky’s social media presence made him one of only 23 artists dubbed by ‘The Next Big Sound’ as a ‘Big Sound of 2011,’ alongside Mac Miller, Kreayshawn and Skrillex.

    George graduated from Emerson College with a B.A. in “Writing and Acting for the Screen and Stage.”

    Bay Area rap phenom Adam Vida. First generation American, half Italian, half Senegalese, Vida’s roots run deepest in San Francisco. But his emotionally charged rap lyrics—social critique set to a beat—reverberate beyond his raw testimony of the Bay. Underneath
    his funny, party-ready anthems is a message from the future on how people can evolve into THURLIANS, a positive incarnation of the post-modern human.

    The success of his debut album The Book of Adam and it’s successor, the THURL tape got him notable praise
    on Complex, Fact Magazine, Hypetrak, Noisey, Stereogum, and The Fader,
    among others. Adam’s genius isn’t only in his musical prowess and agile lyrics; laced with originality and his energetic but unassuming demeanor, Adam’s videos have made the Internet his personal fanboy. Unrestricted by medium, Adam has headlined sold out
    shows at the Bay Area’s most popular venues and taken his transmedia style to the stage with hip hop legends Souls of Mischief, E-40, Too $hort, Andre Nickatina and Wallpaper.
