Twiztid
Pop music is a bloated, rotting corpse and The Wicked Shit is the undead pulse hidden deep within. If you look into the shadows, past the smoke and mirrors of MTV and playlist radio, and into the cold, hard streets, you'll find the underground of music. A place where innovation thrives and inspiration drives. Unapologetic, unique artists have carved a niche for fans fed up with the glamour-mag faces and spoon-fed lyrics of modern music, and offer them something more.

Where most rappers celebrate the urban lifestyle with the same old themes and the same old image, Twiztid peel away the gloss and expose the innards. With an oversized butcher knife. They take the hard edge of theatrical rock-and-roll and temper it with gritty hip-hop to create a musical monstrosity so dangerously real it must be hidden with facepaint. These aren't casual gangsters; their painted personas let them explore the darkest corners of the human psyche, from superhero fantasies to horror film legacies. With their ruthless raps, they can explore every recess of their audience's experiences, every sentimental reflection and every sinister urge. By becoming something unreal, they are free to be real. Whether it's on-stage devastation or home stereo infiltration, Twiztid's music will take you somewhere you've never been before. The scariest part is when you don't want to come back…

My Brothers Keeper
To understand who MBK is you have to first understand where they are from, MBK is made up of four established regional artists, A-Laz, Sixx Digit, M-dot and Slit, formed in 2014.
A-laz and Sixx Digit from Toledo ohio friends from junior high school performed together as early as 1999 at the age of 14, in front of hundreds to thousands locally throughout the years becoming among Toledos best known artists.
Sixx Digit working with Psycopathic Records artists and 3-6 mafias artist Lil Wyte generated a big following in the Midwest. A-Laz also followed a solo career working with Bizarre of D12, Royce da 5'9", Rittz, Crooked I and more. Earning himself a channel on Pandora radio, generating a small national buzz in 2014 up until MBK.
M-Dot a known artist from Ypsilanti Mi. Moved to Toledo 2007 where he and Laz met soon releasing a popular project "Flyzone" and being well known in the new city and being well known for rapping whenever, written, freestyle, on the stage. In the crowd anywhere and everywhere. Proving his drive for music.
Slit, an underground Toledo rapper had a similar upbringing as Laz and Digit, him and Laz met in 2012 and instantly clicked and wrote and recorded a project in 2 weeks. Building his name once again.
In 2014 A-laz ,Sixx Digit, M-Dot and Slit linked up and began recording songs, MBK was born and took on a life of it's own, doing festivals, countless shows creating a massive presence in the region with no album out yet and gaining respect of many.
By the beginning of 2015 they had a 17 track album and a 13 track mixtape done.With a relationship A-Laz formed with Matthew M80 Markoff (a hip-hop industry insider/lawyer) they've decided to shop the album to labels.
MBK prides themselves on their live performance, and marketing creativity, with the right backing they have potential to be the next big name in hip-hop. It's only a matter of time.

Smokehouse Junkiez
Smokehouse Junkiez
Straight out of the dark corners of Lansing, Michigan comes the underground sensation known as the Smokehouse Junkiez. With an affinity to the sweet leaf this duo of Jaqadeliq and Dubb Sicc bring their flavor of alternative hip hop to the table, then smash the table, because that's what their fans have come to expect of them.

The Smokehouse Junkiez have put together an unbelievable following considering the lack of radio play, and lack of mainstream promotion. Working from Roach Records, the label they created themselves in 2005, they have made a lot of noise in the underground. With only an independent self owned record label, the Smokehouse Junkiez have packed small venues all across the Midwest. SHJ has now also done shows in and out of state with recording artists such as: Twiztid, Anybody Killa, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Boondox, Axe Murder Boyz and countless others!

Those shows compiled with numerous invited appearances to ICP's Gathering of the Juggalos give the Junkiez more than a little stage experience. Smokehouse Junkiez have also worked or done shows with many legends of the underground including but not limited to: Insane Poetry, Project Born, Cap One of Simken Heights, The R.O.C., Esham, Mastamind of Natas, Haystak, Potluck, Ajax, and many more!
