Originally known as Microphone Mike, Myka 9 is recognized as one of the most stylistically advanced rappers in the 90’s. His first real break was in the 1980’s when he received the opportunity to be a lyrical ghost writer on NWA’s first compilation, titled ‘NWA and The Posse.’ He then had the opportunity to collaborate with major acts such as The Wailers, Carmen Carter, The Last Poets, and co-founded the legendary hip-hop group, Freestyle Fellowship. Today, Myka champions his often-imitated, never-duplicated lyrical style around the world. He is known for his rapid-fire, jazz-influenced, melodic rapping, and often incorporates singing and occasional scatting into his songs. Myka has said of his style, “My rhymes take the direction of a jazz trumpet or sax solo, like Miles or Trane, if I was to rhyme in the same meter as those notes…that’s my concept.”

The Cloaks:

Awol One
Facebook | Instagram
Los Angeles California born, Rapper and Illustrator, Tony “Awol One” Martin is rumored to be over one thousand years old and every single one of those years can be heard within the cracks of his voice and lyrics. One may call him a crude poet, a drunken rambler or a melodic voice for slackers but nobody can deny that he’s maintained an uncompromising level of intelligence, honesty, melody, dark humor and originality.

Gel Roc

Southern California native, Gel Roc (pronounced with a hard “G” like graffiti not like George Bush), is a Los Angeles based emcee primarily known for his abrasive lyrics along side his EX2 (E Times Two) cohorts. However, as a solo artist, he explores the personal aspects of his life; tapping into a broader array of topics that relate to his audience. A veteran street artist from the Whittier/L.A. based “Life Seen Differently” crue, Gel’s roots stem from the old school b-boy, graffiti, and hip hop culture of the 80’s & 90’s, which is still apparent in his works today.
