Dee-1

Dee-1 has collaborated or performed with the likes of as Lil Wayne, Lupe Fiasco, Drake, Trey Songz, Akon, The Roots, Mýa, The Clipse, Musiq Soulchild, Fat Joe, Lil Boosie, Juvenile, Big K.R.I.T. and Big Boi.

New Orleans native David Augustine, aka Dee-1, didn’t start rapping until he was enrolled at Louisiana State University, but he proved to be a quick study. He released his first two mixtapes during the mid-2000s. The year he graduated from LSU and began teaching mathematics at a middle school, he released his third mixtape. In 2009, the same year he opted to stop teaching and focus on music, he self-released David & Goliath, his proper debut album, throughout which he maintained his down to earth underdog approach. Several additional mixtape releases followed, and his profile continually grew; 2012’s The Focus Tape alone featured collaborations with Killer Mike, Mannie Fresh, and Juvenile. The year it was released, he made an appearance on HBO’s Treme (season three, episode nine). Augustine signed to RCA Inspiration and released an EP, 3’s Up, in 2015.
Rhomar Jessy
Rhomar Jessy
Raised in Paranaque, Philippines, Rhomar Jessy experienced several changes in his life that led to internal struggle. Having found out that he was sold as a child at the price of 70 dollars by his biological mother, he faced a vast number of mental and emotional trials throughout his upbringing and high school life. "I had a love/hate relationship with Saturday nights. It was when I was most creative, while simultaneously at peak with my emotional demise." While juggling with the consequences of anger and depression, and seeking a sense of belonging, he used music as a means for relieving his pain. In the process, he grew closer to God and started clearly seeing his purpose. With a mission and a vision to use his artistic expression in directing people to where true joy comes from, he longs to also carry the torch for his country, the Philippines. "Life is too sweet to be ungrateful," quotes the 22-year old artist. As a newcomer in the world of music, he desires to offer a fresh and transparent sound to the table.
