Along with his time spent with ZULUZULUU, Greg Grease is also an MC whose omnipresence in the scene extends from in-store beat battles to local mixtape guest verses to an extended, ever-evolving discography of his own. Grease spits like the kind of artist who was never told that bohemian hip-hop and street rap don’t intersect—a benefit of growing up with a hip-hop head for a father, and a need to reveal a new facet of his life with each release. Grease couples a survivor’s resolve with a creator’s restlessness.
Never one to hop on trends and ride the wave, Muja IS the wave. Three years ago Muja released the now legendary ‘God Kissed It The Devil Missed It’ and ever since then he’s been killing everything he touches. While ‘God Kissed It’ was a personal benchmark, Muja keeps expanding his artistry and adding depth to his music instead of attempting to recreate the magic of previous projects. As he grows, so does the music. Muja has always been regarded as an elite lyricist and local legend, but 2017 will solidify that status while expanding his repertoire to songwriting, producing and general global dominance.
After penning 16’s for Kanye and writing with Diddy’s team in Miami it was time to focus on his own career goals and take matters into his own hands. Muja self-funded ‘The Red Eye Tour’ and scheduled a month long hip-hop- humanitarian effort in locations such as Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Israel, Italy and most recently the incredibly inspiring island of Cuba. Traveling abroad woke the sleeping giant and ever since his return he has been on a tear.
Known for his politically incorrect sarcasm, sharp humor, intelligence and relentless work ethic, Muja’s new album ‘PyrExpeditioN showcases the mind of Muja like never before. The self-proclaimed “Bob Dylan in Polo linen” has once again returned to puncture holes through your comfort zone. He’ll go where a lot of rappers won’t.
"Lady Midnight has developed her chops by playing in wide-ranging groups like the electro-pop trio VANDAAM and the horn-fueled Afro-Cuban band Malamanya. There's never been a better time to take a closer look at this entrancing singer, however, as she emerges as a solo artist. [...] It's hard not to picture Sade lounging on a yacht in the Caribbean, or Lady Midnight herself coolly driving around town with the top down." —Andrea Swensson, The Current
