-Labeled "the Dark Sith Lord" of Seattle Nacho Picasso is an American Rapper born Jesse Robnson in San Francisco, CA and ultimately raised in Seattle WA frm age 3. He has notably released several sole and collaborative albums most recognized with Blue Sky Black Death.
His career starred in 2011 with the underground success and the critical praise of his first EP "For The Glory." He is known for his cleveryet sometimes vulgar punch lines taboo substance matter and pop culture references. He helped shape and pave the way for the most
recent wave of Seattle hip-hop scene which is now reminiscent of the eary 90s grunge scene where Nacho stand in the forefront with his rebelous take no prisoners attitude and image.
Nacho's debut solo For The Glory garnered a ton of press, earning a high 7.9 review from Pitchfork and a few dozen cosigns from the blog world's voices of authority. The following year he released three more albums and made it to Forbes, at #4 of their "Best Albums of The Year" list.
His nine album discography places him in a category and genre all his own - though he is fearless collaborating with the likes of Flatbush Zombies, Danny Brown, Gucci Mane, Deniro Farrar, and Harry Fraud. Nacho is the people's choice, a blog's favorite, and one of the most energizing performers rap music has on the court.
-from Orange County, NY
-Orange County, New York hip-hop duo the Doppelgangaz consist of longtime friends EP and Matter Ov Fact. The two grew up together and started dabbling with production and writing their own rhymes in the late '90s, working on various projects before starting the Doppelgangaz in earnest around 2008. The duo quickly developed a style steeped deeply in the influence of gritty East Coast rap heroes who incorporated imagery of a grimy, vagrant lifestyle. The Doppelgangaz melded their larger-than-life costumed personas with raw beats and rhymes that repeatedly nodded to an outlaw life. The group's first EP, The Ghastly Duo, surfaced in 2008 and was followed the next year by debut studio album 2012: The New Beginning. The Doppelgangaz would be highly prolific for the next several years, releasing new music that alternated between albums that highlighted their flows and mostly instrumental releases that showcased their production skills. Arriving in 2011, Lone Sharks was critically acclaimed as some of their best work, and they offered up new volumes of their Beats for Brothels series at an almost annual rate. Amid various EP and one-off projects, the Doppelgangaz continued to release more fully realized studio albums, including 2013's HARK!, 2014's Peace Kehd, and 2017's Dopp Hopp.
