The indie pop duo Matt and Kim, best known for their energetic and upbeat music, have played at various venues including Bonnaroo, Coachella, and Firefly Music Festival. After forming the group in 2004, they have released five albums. After their first album was released in 2006, Matt & Kim, their second album Grand, which featured the single “Daylight,” gained certified gold status by the RIAA. Their fifth album, New Glow, was released both in the United States by Harvest Records, and internationally by Virgin EMI Records.
Lil Dicky broke through as an American Jewish rapper after his song “Ex-Boyfriend,” from the mixtape So Hard, was self-released and went viral. The single exploded within 24 hours after its release with over a million views. He self-released his debut albumProfessional Rapper in 2015. The rapper, songwriter, and comedian received a platinum certification for “Save Dat Money” by the RIAA in 2015.
With a reputation for one-upping the competition by arriving via helicopter at rooftop listening parties for his own T.R.U. (The Real University) imprint, and the kind of grandiose ambition that a rapper from southside Atlanta needs to chase down the American Dream,
2 Chainz officially launched his solo career as the newest signing to Def Jam Recordings. Proving that he could write street anthems with crossover appeal, he capitalized on his notoriety with the back-to-back mixtape releases of Codeine Withdrawal in 2010 and Codeine Cowboy in 2011. Currently mining digital downloads in the millions for T.R.U. REALigion, his latest indie mixtape sensation (released November 2011), 2 Chainz is winning new fans every hour. His ‘hit’ tracks – signatures that include “Riot,” “Boo” featuring Yo Gotti, and the Drumma Boy-produced smash single “Spend It,” have helped establish a new sphere of influence for the lanky, outspoken rapper. By now, the 2 Chainz buzz had reached a fever pitch with the likes of Busta Rhymes, Young Jeezy and Pusha T jumping at the chance to join what he likes to call his “campaign.”
