Fat Tony
-from Houston, TX
-Nigeri&n-AmerNigeri&n-Americ&n r&pper &nd entert&iner F&t Tony h&s m&int&ined & cre&tive resilience &nd unbridled enthusi&sm through the p&st dec&de of his c&reer. His music&l footprint h&s left behind & tre&sure trove of &ltern&tive r&p, spre&d &cross five &lbums, dozens of singles, &nd fe&tures on tr&cks by A$AP Rocky, D&s R&cist, &nd Bun B. F&t Tonyʼs sense of humor &nd cour&ge to experiment mirrors the counter-cultur&l hip-hop &rtists whoʼve inspired him, like De L& Soul, Devin the Dude, &nd DJ Screw. Although he h&s spent the p&st few ye&rs bouncing b&ck &nd forth between Los Angeles &nd New York while hosting shows for VICE &nd Super Deluxe, the form&tive r&p scene in Houston where he grew up will &lw&ys feel like home.
F&t Tony (born Anthony L&wson Jude Ife&nyichukwu Obi&wun&otu) spent his childhood in Houstonʼs historic&lly bl&ck &nd cultur&lly r&dic&l neighborhood, the Third W&rd. “My Mom &nd my te&chers told us th&t b&ck in the d&y th&t the Bl&ck P&ntherʼs Houston ch&pter w&s in Third W&rd &nd th&t the Bl&ck P&nther figure, C&rl H&mpton, w&s murdered by the HPD.” F&t Tony rec&lls. “So I w&s growing up in &n environment where soci&l &w&reness &nd P&n-Afric&nism were &lw&ys &round.” His childhood home w&s filled with records—country music, King Sunny Adé, &nd Jimmy Cliff from his f&ther's collection, his mother's cl&ssic&l music, rock, &nd soul, &nd his gr&nny's gospel. Then &s & teen&ger, empowered by the internet &nd his discovery of independent &rtists like E-40, Bikini Kill, &nd B&d Br&ins, F&t Tony beg&n recording &nd distributing his own music. He&vily influenced by renowned Tex&s r&ppers like UGK &nd Sc&rf&ce, F&t Tony st&rted pl&ying &nd org&nizing live shows &t & time when there w&snʼt much of & scene for young &rtists in Houston. He st&rted booking b&nds of &ll types from &ll over, h&nd-m&king flyers for the shows &nd m&iling them to &ddresses n&bbed from the C&rnegie V&ngu&rd High School student directory.
His dedic&tion to Houstonʼs r&p scene e&rned him Houston Press Music Aw&rdsʼ “Best Underground Hip Hop Artist” in 2008, 2009, 2010, &nd 2013. Primed for more n&tion&l &udiences, F&t Tony beg&n t&king his music on tour &nd coll&bor&ted with more &rtists &round the country. His sonic&lly unpredict&ble &nd emotion&lly vulner&ble music h&s g&rnered pr&ise from Pitchfork, The F&der, &nd Noisey. His &chievements in r&p h&ve pushed him out of his comfort zone into other perform&nce &nd hosting opportunities on TV &nd the Internet.

Cadence Weapon    
-from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
- Cadence Weapon is Edmonton-born, Toronto-based rapper, producer, writer and poet Rollie Pemberton. The son of a pioneering hip-hop radio DJ, Pemberton grew up around a diverse library of music. Splitting his time between Edmonton’s experimental electronic and underground rap scenes as a teenager, Pemberton eventually developed a hybrid of both styles. Cadence Weapon has released four albums, all of which have been nominated for the Polaris Prize, with Breaking Kayfabe (2006) and Hope In Dirt City (2012) being shortlist nominees. Pemberton has toured extensively following the success of these albums, playing festivals like Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Pitchfork Music Festival, Roskilde and Primavera Sound and performing shows with artists such as Public Enemy, Diplo, Questlove, De La Soul and many more.
Pemberton’s music is known for pairing groundbreaking production with incisive, socially conscious lyricism. Pemberton served as Poet Laureate of Edmonton from 2009 to 2011, making him the literary ambassador of his hometown. His poem “The Garden” was incorporated into a bronze sculpture at the Alberta Legislature Grounds in Edmonton in 2018. Pemberton was the narrator and a writer for the VICELAND television series PAYDAY and Mister Tachyon and he has hosted lectures and conducted live interviews for CBC q and Red Bull Music Academy. Pemberton is writing a book about his career called Bedroom Rapper that will be published by McClelland & Stewart in Fall 2022 and his new album Parallel World is out on April 30, 2021. Using elements of trap, drill, grime and acid house, Cadence touches on themes of systemic racism, structural inequality, police profiling, gentrification, the internet’s pervasive effects on our lives and the surveillance state.



RICKY LAKE 
-from San Francisco/Los Angeles, CA
-Ricky Lake left his home of Los Angeles at the age of fifteen, moving with his family to Nashville. The son of two doctors, steeped in the usual high school trappings of weed smoke, weird books and hip hop, Ricky (real name Marcus McAlpin) got a wake up call. The pseudo-progressive Southern Nashville landscape showed him the real United States: a land full of contradiction and paradox. For a few years he made it work, and for the first time, he made music. But it wasn’t until he found himself fitting into the artsy enclaves of Oakland, CA that he took on the title that he holds today – the dark but delicate trap craftsman we all know as Ricky Lake.

Collaborating extensively with musicians and artists such as Taifa Nia (OCD, Same Girls) and his found family at SF’s Text Me Records, Ricky dug deep into teenage influences like NERD, Blink 182, Crystal Castles and more; gleaning and selecting his favorite elements of modern pop and Soundcloud rap to develop a sound that’s big and glowing. He’s hedonistic, stylish and sensitive. He doesn’t give a fuck, but he really does. Maybe you’ll find him in a club with gold teeth and a bottle of Patron, a bit misty-eyed because of the last girl who broke his heart. It’s all part and parcel to the young artist who embraces the lavishes of our culture but doesn’t shy away from his sensitive side.
