Souls of Liberty
Why we like Dough:
"Champagne II" is the the first self-produced single from Dough's upcoming "The Poor Black Man" mixtape. The upbeat instrumental samples singer-songwriter Amy Kuney's "Kiss Me Like You Mean It", and Dough fittingly addresses some of the more important women in his life, detailing the struggles they've been though. The track is both sincere and honest, and it's clear he's speaking from personal experience. He confidently bares his soul, which is something many emcees are incapable of these days.
DoughBoi's charismatic and crafty flow as well as use of well thought out punch lines sets him apart from many to ever pick up a mic. Now with the anticipated release of his first mixtape "Self Titled" on the way, DoughBoi is ready to claim his place in the music industry and put Sounds Of Chain Reaction on the map. Born Derian Richard Morgan and raised in Fort Lauderdale, FL, DoughBoi found out he had a way with creativity at a young age. Seeing his talent and ability to silence a crowd with his personality, Ms. Brenda Coney, his aunt, wrote his first song setting him on the musical path. In elementary school, he began participating and winning talent shows year after year, constantly showing progression. After years of preparation, 2009 was his breakout year after he catapulted on the music scene with his first radio-ready song "LockdDown". Having produced the track himself, he showed just how "trying paid off." With Chain Reaction on his back, 2013 is looking like a promising year, and DoughBoi is both ready for the long haul and in it for the riches.

Why we like Souls Of Liberty:
Souls of Liberty toast to success and the good life on their latest offering, detailing the perks that come with money, power and respect. Although braggadocios, both the instrumental and their delivery are incredibly smooth, reminiscent of Curren$y's approach. You can't really deny the vibe here.
Souls of Liberty are a melodious duo focused on pushing the envelope sonically, lyrically, creating a music business empire, and becoming legendary artists. Ryan Escobar and Tenelle Donta cultivated their name and perspective from the harsh realities native to their St. Louis upbringing.

Why we like Cozzy:
Cozzy has a classic southern drawl, with a new school approach. Reminiscent of Big K.R.I.T., another rapper who has successfully put his own spin on southern rap, while still working with the defining elements of the region's long history. His melodies are deceptively catchy, and his music is both nostalgic and distinctly its own sound. Chances are this will be far from the last time you hear from him.
Up and coming artist Cozzy plans to give you more insight on the world of a southern lyricist. With Hip Hop being so diverse in this day and age , being different yet genuine is a must . Cozzy has followed his own road of music since his start in '07 and he plans to share it with the world.

Why we like Kev Decor:
Kev Decor has a very animated flow, and his colorful production choices compliment it perfectly. Kev is definitely a lyricist, but he sacrifices no personality in the process. He definitely has some J. Cole in his delivery, a rapper he namechecks on the track that landed him here, and like Cole he's as credible as a producer as he is an emcee. Decor is certainly the full package, which makes him an atist to watch in the future.
Typically in a dark lit private recording studio somewhere along the East Coast, 22 yearold New Jersey native Kevin Adorno, also known as Kev Decor (formerly known under the pseudonym “6”), is chiseling away at his next piece of work to be released after his most recent effort and debut project “Welcome 2 the Finish”. This young up-and-coming prospect is a breath of fresh air to anyone who might just now be discovering. Unique to his own sound and an uncanny ability to capture listeners musically through real life experiences, this Rapper/Producer/Audio Engineer brings an undeniably original recipe to the table. Having studied Audio Engineering/Production at the Institute of Audio Research in New York City and Drums as a teenager, Kevin certainly has matured into a musical maven over the years. Born on the island of Puerto Rico and raised in New Jersey, he was brought up in a deeply cultured Hispanic household, which has had a definitive impact on his works. An advocate of doing absolutely whatever possible, even when thought to be impossible, to achieve goals; Adorno has always embraced his trials and tribulations during early child hood and into adult hood. Drawing influences from right at home, witnessing his mother struggle as a single parent to feed a family, he began creatively expressing his thoughts through writing that developed into rhyming and eventually, structured songs. References are often heard in his material, although his obstacles are never delivered with the intent of being received in a braggadocios manner. In a very focus absorbed tone he states, “Lighting a camp fire in your backyard with a set of matches, there’s nothing glorious about that. Being stranded in the middle of the Amazon Jungle during a heavy rain storm and lighting a camp fire, now that…is glorious.”
