Watsky
Watsky
A successful slam poet turned rapper, Watsky first gained attention through ‘Russell Simmons’ HBO Def Poetry’, and a later burst of viral success for his fast rapping. At every turn, Watsky has refused to be pigeonholed, following up his speed rap success with 2013 LP Cardboard Castles, an eccentric ode to creativity, and 2014’s Anderson. Paak-produced All You Can Do. After a hiatus to work on new material, Watsky pivots again, this time to prose, returning simultaneously with the essay collection How To Ruin Everything, published by Plume/Penguin-Random House, of which Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda writes, “funny, subversive […] you find yourself nodding your head in wonder and recognition.” How To Ruin Everything debuted in the New York Times best selling list. In total, he has created 4 studio albums and two live albums. Watsky released his fifth album, ‘x Infinity,’ August 2016, describing it as his most ambitious project yet.
Adam Vida
Adam Vida
Bay Area rap phenom Adam Vida. First generation American, half Italian, half Senegalese, Vida’s roots run deepest in San Francisco. But his emotionally charged rap lyrics—social critique set to a beat—reverberate beyond his raw testimony of the Bay. Underneath
his funny, party-ready anthems is a message from the future on how people can evolve into THURLIANS, a positive incarnation of the post-modern human.

The success of his debut album The Book of Adam and it’s successor, the THURL tape got him notable praise
on Complex, Fact Magazine, Hypetrak, Noisey, Stereogum, and The Fader,
among others. Adam’s genius isn’t only in his musical prowess and agile lyrics; laced with originality and his energetic but unassuming demeanor, Adam’s videos have made the Internet his personal fanboy. Unrestricted by medium, Adam has headlined sold out
shows at the Bay Area’s most popular venues and taken his transmedia style to the stage with hip hop legends Souls of Mischief, E-40, Too $hort, Andre Nickatina and Wallpaper.
