Prof
Prof
Forged from a history of hardship and partying, Prof's music and career reflect the dichotomy that his life has been. His music chronicles everything he has experienced; from adversities as a child, like his father setting fire to their home or sleeping on a bean bag growing up, to his adult diversions, like his love affair with whiskey and women (in that order). Much the same, his career has also seen this duality. After grinding on the Minneapolis hip-hop scene for over ten years with little to show besides a ravenous fan base, Prof has recently begun to make serious national traction on the back of his unique recordings, video content and must see live shows.

Frequently billed with rap mainstays like Atmosphere, Yelawolf, Tech N9ne, POS, Brother Ali, Doomtree and Killer Mike, Prof has shown his talent can hang with the best. This talent has been well documented by his critically acclaimed Kaiser Von Powderhorn mixtape series, three full length albums, recordings with Brother Ali, Slug and Yelawolf, and a guest appearance on the Atmosphere track "Minnesota Nice".

Prof's most 2011 LP King Gampo is proof that he's only getting better. Thanks to help from friends like Brother Ali, Ant of Atmosphere, and MTV Riff Raff (SODMG), King Gampo expands upon Prof's previous works detailing his worst memories and best parties, making sure the listener bobs their head and shakes their ass the entire time. To support the record, Prof joined Atmosphere and Grieves on national tours in fall of 2011, headlined sold-out King Gampo Tour dates in February 2012, and was Andre Nickatina's direct supporting artist during his national tour in the Spring of 2012.

Currently, Prof is set to release new Kaiser Von Powderhorn 3, the third volume of his widely popular, Kaiser Von Powderhorn mixtape series with features by Yelawolf, Slug and guest production from Doomtree's, Lazerbeak out September 25, 2012.

J.Lately
With no pretend marketing scheme or gimmick, J. Lately distinguishes himself with his classic boom bap style and laid back flow. A true appreciation for music, along with the unique ability to put everyday life into a relatable perspective has allowed him to flourish in the local Bay Area scene.

His latest full-length album, "Daydreams & Warm Nights", received attention from blogs such as 2dopeboyz.com, djbooth.net, kevinnottingham.com, and ashleyoutrageous.com, as well as many other internet outlets. Including features from Zumbi (of Zion I) and Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), and with production from DJ Dahi, Jansport J, and Jonathan Lowell providing the backdrop, the album serves as Lately's strongest piece of work to date. With a patient yet persistent attitude he continues work on a variety of future projects, including collaborative albums with Sacramento emcee J.Good and North Bay emcee Trey C.

"It's not about rushing it" explains Lately, "it's about quality music and progress".
