Labeled “the Dark Sith Lord” of Seattle, Nacho Picasso is an American Rapper born Jesse Robinson in San Francisco CA ultimately raised in Seattle WA from age 3. He has notably released several sole and collaborative albums most recognized with BlueSkyBlackDeath. 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 clever yet sometimes vulgar punchlines taboo subject 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 early 90s grunge scene where Nacho stands in the forefront with his rebellious take no prisoners attitude and image.
Justin Plaza (J.Plaza) is an artist who doesn’t like to limit himself to one genre; hip-hop, R&B, Pop, whatever he’s feeling at the moment. Born Feb 13, 1990 in Kentucky, J.Plaza spent much of his childhood traveling around the country with a military mother, with stints in Georgia and Ohio, finally landing in Minnesota. Moving around gave him the opportunity to discover new environments, and meet new people. He started writing music at a young age, using his diverse musical background to share his dreams, aspirations, and personal experiences in a way that listeners can relate to.
Over the past two years, Plaza has worked to polish his sound, He has been causing a stir in Minneapolis, among other cities nationally. Never satisfied, he has proven himself worthy among the top emcees in the state of Minnesota - all without releasing a full project to date. His string of singles keeps fans wanting more. It is no longer a question that J.Plaza has what it takes to be a star, it’s just a matter of when.
Fundo’s resume speaks for itself. Having DJ’ed for Minneapolis hip hop mainstays like Toki Wright, M.anifest, Desdamona, Truth Maze, Kanser, and P.O.S. over the past 8 years, Fundo has no shortage of experience. This combined with the fact that he currently acts as the touring DJ for one of Minneapolis’ fastest growing rappers, Prof, and co-hosts the two premiere rap dance parties in the Twin Cities in Get Cryphy (Plain Ole Bill, Jimmy2Times, DJ Last Word) and Hands High (Plain Ole Bill), it’s hard to argue that many other DJ’s in the Twin Cities have been responsible for more good times, and subsequent hangovers, than Fundo.
Both as a touring DJ and a party DJ, Fundo has shared the stage with hip hop greats DJ Craze, DJ Premier, Z-Trip, Atmosphere, DJ Babu, Evidence, Ice-T, P.O.S., Grieves & Budo, Too Short, Killer Mike, Doomtree, Astronautalis, Yelawolf, Common, Krs-One, The Heavy, Mike Relm, and Bad Rabbits just to name a few.
