MADEINTYO

For fans of Lil Yachty, DRAM, and Big Sean

Madeintyo does not have your typical rapper backstory – the son of a Naval Officer, he moved around frequently until his family landed in Tokyo for his high school years. Influenced by the foreign culture around him and inspired by his brother 24hrs (a successful artist in his own right) Madeintyo began to take music seriously. He uploaded a song to his brother’s SoundCloud page and a movement was born – named The Private Club. His bass-heavy production influenced a new genre of rap music with a playful approach to lyrics. He was the first artist in his lane to break at radio, opening the doors for many new artists.

His debut single “Uber Everywhere” was certified RIAA Platinum, shifted radio & the culture.  His second single, “Skateboard P,” hit #8 at urban radio.  With an anticipated debut album to drop later this year, Madeintyo is planning for his collective The Private Club to inspire the masses to become part of this inner circle. Every fan is a member, every member is family.

GoldLink

For fans of: Vic Mensa, Mick Jenkins, Isaiah Rashad

Where the intersections of the DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia) collide, 24-year old GoldLink is a direct product. The DC metropolitan area has long been treated like a musical Rubik’s cube—there are bursting, technicolor patches of musical brilliance, but the components never line up in a way that made sense to those on the outside. GoldLink aims to synthesize his environment’s litany of influences and inspirations into something unique, singular, and all together his own.

With his latest album, At What Cost, releasing in March 2017 (Squaaash Club/RCA), he’s done just that. By merging the essence of go-go with the African diaspora, he’s done what hip-hop has done from its inception: repurpose what’s available into something magical.
