Born and raised in Lansing, MI, Packy began as the emcee in rapper/producer duo, The Specktators. In 2011, The Specktators hit the scene with their first official mixtape, "Familiar With Floss." This mixtape was followed up by two more, "The Sunroom" and "About That Life", the latter of which resulted in 150,000+ downloads. In December 2013, The Specktators relocated to Los Angeles, CA and released their first official album, "The Parlay," on iTunes and other digital stores. "The Parlay" debuted at #6 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart.

In 2014, The Specktators transitioned into an independent label headed by Moe-T (the producer half of The Specktators) and Packy became a solo artist under the label that he helped to build.

In addition to his undeniable work as a writer and recording artist, Packy delivers an unforgettable live show. Throughout the early years of his career, Packy became a fixture in the Lansing hip-hop scene. Beginning with open mic sets and opening for local artists, Packy quickly developed his live show and stage presence to the point of selling out his local venue in Lansing and embarking on two nationwide tours in early 2014. He has shared the stage with artists such as Snoop Dogg, Machine Gun Kelly, Kid Ink, Timeflies, Chiddy Bang, Rockie Fresh, Yonas, SoMo, and many more.

Priding himself on hard work, energy, fan interaction, and dedication to his craft, Packy has independently built a fan base whose loyalty is unmatched. Look for Packy to be the next big name in hip-hop.
Born and raised in Lansing, MI, Cyrus Hutchings began as one emcee in a rapper/singer/producer duo with Thomas "phourthelove" Fentress. Releasing their debut EP, The Quel Table, they garnered a relatively strong local following and partnership with Fusionshows, a booking agency out of Lansing, MI, granting them the opportunity to open for much larger acts. Some of these acts included Big Sean, Chance The Rapper, Machine Gun Kelly, Vic Mensa, Dizzy Wright, Acehood, MisterWives and many, many more.

While developing their live show, they also completed the recording of their debut full length project, Colors & Other Things, and released it in the summer of 2014. The project caught the attention of Michigan-based independent record label, The Specktators Collective, who brought Cyrus on as a solo act.

Upon signing, Cyrus began the recording of his debut solo EP, Love, Cyrus, and the project was released in May of 2015 to platforms such as Youtube, Soundcloud, iTunes and all other major streaming services. A standout from the project, Northside, has acquired well over a million streams across Spotify, Youtube and Soundcloud to date. Following the strong release, Cyrus finished enough material for two to three albums over the course of the next 12 months, and eventually settled on 18 records. These records became his debut album, We Should Just Enjoy Ourselves, which was officially released on October 28th of 2016 and charted at #23 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart.
