Ivy League Royale
Why we like Famous Vet:
Famous Vet is as much a producer as he is an emcee. Vet is able to transform familiar samples into completely new ideas with his instrumentals, as evidenced by his interesting use of Phoenix's "1901" on the track that landed hime here, "Three L's". vet is just as impressive on the mic, hiss confident flows and hooks complimenting his strong production work perfectly.

Ivy League Royale
Why we like Ivy League Royale:
Ivy League Royale delivers a breezy yet confident sound, no short on boasts, but fit for a lazy summer afternoon. The Miami emcee takes note from Rick Ross' brand of luxury rap, spitting over lush production reminiscent of some of J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League's best work. Royale flows have an effortless-type quality that gives his music that relaxed feel, but his impressive rhymes don't suffer for it.
Ivy League is a rap artist from Miami-Dade County. He has released two projects this year entitled "Before the End" (Feb 29th) and "To Fall From Grace" (Sept 26th).

Why we like LAVI$H:
LAVI$H's production is equal parts hard and catchy. Similarly to many current trap-producers, LAVI$H experiments with the style by incorporating simple riffs and melodies that engrain themselves in your brain. The result is an undeniably street-ready sound, that doesn't sacrifice any accessibility in the process. The Cali rapper has a similar approach to rhyming, using memorable rhythms and flows that work perfectly with his style of production. .
Bellflower Ca born, Pomona Ca raised, Lavi$h is the Name and making hits is his game. At the early age of 13, Lavi$h found his passion for making beats and writing songs. As the years went on he began to develop a unique and versatile sound that has now became a perfect fit for the music industry.

Why we like K.O.:
K.O. injects new life into the trap formula, mainly through his ferocious rapping, but also by bringing unconventional elements into a genre which can sometimes get hung up on current trends. On the track that landed him here, "On The Road," the rapper launches into an unstoppable double time flow out the gate, and just when you think the pace has been set for the track, it shifts into a lower BPM, showcasing a melodice, chopped and screwed turnaround. K.O.'s undeniable skill and his tendency to shit the norms make him an artist to watch this year.
Upcoming artist K.O is from Las Vegas. NV he is 22 years of age. He represents the struggle,hardship, hard work and dedication and the true art of music. He started rapping at the age of 9. Some of his musical influences are "Big Krit, Jay-Z, Jay Electronica, Nas, Andre 300". K.O and his upcoming Label "True Nation" plan to continue to grow and prefect every step it takes to be a successful independent artist. Booking: Koakatrix@gmail.com
