South Jersey artist Willie Starks. He recently released his latest single Runaway featuring crooner J.Munoz from his forth-coming EP "Fear & Faith" which is due to be released late February, is set to be a game changer, displaying so many different styles on one project. Starks has been working closely with Waju Beats of Street Racer Productions to create a fresh new sound, also producing some records himself with additional production from New Jersey based producers, Kameron Cooper & SpvcxGvng. Starks transcends genres and understands the significance of breaking barriers and extending a "rapper's" limitations.

Besides the ever looming cloud called "gangsta rap" that the West will forever be associated with, a new caliber of skill driven MCs are emerging out of the Left Coast and one among this growing breed is a complex personality simply known as Kaliq.

Born to NOI minister Jamal Muhammad and Martha Pitts, Kaliq grew up in the midst of the Hip Hop influenced LA rebellion, which set him on the path to use his talent to teach the masses. Kaliq's father introduced him to Hip Hop through the likes of Wu Tang, Common, Nas, James Brown, and Lauryn Hill, instilling in him the pro-Black, positive themes that still resonate in his music today. Now residing in Phoenix, Kaliq has solidified himself on the Arizona scene, dropping 10 well-received projects there, which blossomed into an opportunity to write songs for the one and only Dr. Dre in LA. An avid practitioner of mixed martial arts, Kaliq is dedicated to living a positive and healthy lifestyle that he intends to promote through his music and his everyday life.

D.R.E.E.M. Entertainment is a indie/unsigned music collective from Saginaw, MI. In a world where creativity and originality is lacking, their music has that "breath of fresh air" quality that it so badly needs and it exceedingly shows. It has a raw emotion that lives, breathes, and speaks for itself. The energy it possess is enough to power even the entire Las Vegas strip; this is especially seen while performing live. Growing up in the impoverished city of Saginaw, violence and crime is at an all-time high and the only positive outlets for youth to be apart of was organized sports. The collective has come a long way from the slums and last year they performed all across the Midwest gracing venues in cities such as Detroit, Grand Rapids, Mt. Pleasant, Flint, and Chicago.

Diamond District emcee Uptown XO teamed up with MTVhive today to release the first single from his upcoming solo album "Colour de Grey". The track, Finding My Way, was produced by A.B. The Pro and features a percussive funk loop that finds XO in an introspective mood - lyrically exploring all he's been through - from childhood evictions and lost memories, to the battle for his soul: "Lost erything in life and had to start all over / I had to cope with the pain, no I can't stay sober"
