More Info

Shawn Mendes: Shawn Peter Raul Mendes (born August 8, 1998) is a Canadian singer and songwriter. He attracted a following in 2013, when he began posting song covers on the popular video sharing application Vine. The following year, he caught the attention of artist manager Andrew Gertler and Island Records A&R Ziggy Chareton which led to him signing a deal with the record label. Mendes went on to release an EP and his debut studio album Handwritten, whose single "Stitches" reached the top ten in the U.S. and Canada.

Charlie Puth: A Berklee College of Music Alum, Charlie Puth originally performed as a duo with Emily Luther. Puth gained worldwide notice after the release of his single "Marvin Gaye" featuring Meghan Trainor, as well as for his performance on the Wiz Khalifa single "See You Again."

TYGA: WHO IS TYGA?

There is a simple answer;

At age 17 he has been coronated the next rap legend!

He is not all street hype, unlike every other cookie cutter, watered down artist. His effortless flow and presumptuous swagger is evident through his music.

Starting when he was 9 years old he knew this is what he wanted to do.

He would go around the house rhyming until he fell asleep. Tyga has the ability to compose radio friendly hits as well as thought provoking music without compromising his artistic integrity.

Every region has one person or group that people identify it with.

For example, in the South a group like Outkast gave Atlanta an identity. This led the way for Ludacris, Young Jeezy and T.I.s accomplishments. The same can be said for the West as N.W.A. paved the way for artists such as Snoop Dogg and The Game to achieve multi-platinum success.

With the same pioneering spirit, Tyga is forging a brand new musical identity for the West! His passion and work ethic set a new precedence for music.

With an entity such as G.E.D Inc. behind him Tyga is ready to make timeless music.



G-Eazy: Schooled in the bay, tested in New Orleans, G-Eazy isn’t a stranger to paying dues. His live shows have turned heads from the smallest of Midwest clubs all the way up to arenas on dates with Lil Wayne, Big Sean, A$AP Rocky and Drake, among others. Without label support G-Eazy has trekked across the US on multiple tours breaking hearts with his James Dean meets hip-hop vibe and unforgettable live shows. It’s not hype. It’s not a hit. It’s not an image. It’s all of the above. G reinterprets what he loves, not what everyone wants to hear, but in 2012 its looking like those two paths are starting to merge. Gʼs been a fixture on the local New Orleans rap scene for a few years and more recently in the music blogosphere, but in the last few months his popularity has surged and as his national profile has grown exponentially. He recently opened up for A$AP Rocky at his sold-out New York City debut and supported Lil Wayne, Mystikal and others at the buzziest event of SXSW 2012– Lil Wayne’s DEWeezy party. G’s announcement on all 41 dates of the Van’s Warped tour has solidified him as an artist to look out for in the coming months. But it all comes back to the live show, one New Orleans music blogger summed it up with, “the young crowd was reaching the levels of mass hysteria reserved for the 50s and 60s rock ʻnʼ roll legends to whom G-Eazy has been paying so much homage…”

NF: NF began making music in 2010 under his real name, Nathan Feuerstein, when he released his debut album, Moments. That same year, Feuerstein also began working on an EP, NF. Due to complications with his record label, the EP wasn't released until 2014, and charted at #12 on the Billboard Christian Albums and #15 on the Top Rap Albums chart.

In between solo albums, NF appeared on tracks from TobyMac, Flame, and Futuristic. NF's second studio album, Therapy Session, performed even better than his debut, reaching #12 on the Billboard Albums chart, and shot to the top of the Christian and Rap charts. The album also garnered NF two Dove Awards: One for Best Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year, and Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year for "Oh Lord".

Not to be outdone, NF's third album, Perception, shot to the top of the US charts, giving the rapper his first chart-topping record.
