Come out and celebrate the release of MaLLy’s long-awaited album The Journey To A Smile. The night will be filled with good people, good vibes and good music. See you there!
Active since 2009, MaLLy has cemented his place in the Twin Cities music scene with a strong discography boasting three critically acclaimed albums—The Passion, The Last Great..., and The Colors of Black—along with two well-received EPs including Free on the 15th and Strange Rhythm. In 2012, he was voted the Twin Cities’ best hip-hop artist by the City Pages, and has been recognized by other local and national press outlets including the Star Tribune, 2DopeBoyz and Complex Magazine. Prominent industry figures such as Monie Love, Sway Calloway, Swif N Wessun, and Chuck D have lauded his work.
MaLLy has toured nationwide with Atmosphere on their “Welcome to Minnesota” tour in 2012, with Brother Ali on his “Home Away From Home” tour in 2014, and with Webster X and Kweku Collins on the Orbit Series Tour in 2015. Additionally, he’s made two appearances—one as a performer (2011) and one as co-host with Brother Ali (2012)—at Soundset, the largest Hip-Hop festival in Minnesota.
MaLLy is known for exhibiting a strong artistic duality in his music; he owns both a commanding, fiery delivery of rhymes detailing his ambition with an introspective tone of a man striving for improvement of self and the world around him. In 2018, MaLLy was awarded the McKnight Foundation Fellowship for musicians and is preparing to release his fourth solo album entitled The Journey To A Smile.
Real life airplane pilot, DJ and producer Last Word made his name as the voice of Twin Cities' legendary DJ crew, "Get Cryphy". Over the years, the Rhymesayers stable live-show-architect has toured the world backing up Brother Ali, Prof, deM atlas & MaLLy. Last Word is flying the friendly skies by day, rockin' the mic & bringing down the house on the turntables by night.

Skilled. Smart. Passionate. These are just a few words that represent indie hip-hop artist, Just Wulf, an emerging talent from Saint Paul, Minnesota. Mixing a battle rap bark with surprisingly humble common-man narratives for the everyday listener, Wulf brings a bolstering, “community-first” vibe to his live performances. With a handful of full-length projects and song features under his belt, he continues to gain national attention, from radio appearances, public speaking engagements, and touring with Carnage The Executioner.
Just Wulf proves that he's not "just another rapper" and flexes his multi-faceted work ethic by curating shows, DJ'ing, hosting events, running a clothing line, and producing for other artists. He released his first beat tape, Wulfs Never Hibernate, in Spring 2019 and is currently working on a collaborative project with Big Jess.
