Born Jeffrey Williams, Thug released three volumes of his mixtape series I Came from Nothing before joining Gucci Mane's 1017 Brick Squad crew in late 2012. His mixtape 1017 Thug followed in early 2013, featuring the quirky street single "Picacho." Later in the year, his "Stoner" single would appear, but it didn't catch fire until 2014, when an authorized remix featuring Wale opened the floodgates for a series of unauthorized remixes from artists like Jim Jones, Iamsu!, and Trick Trick. That same year, Thug announced he had signed with rapper Future's Freebandz imprint. His street album, 2015's Barter 6, climbed up to number 22 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, while the 2016 mixtape I'm Up debuted at the very same position. Mere months after dropping I'm Up, Thug released Slime Season 3, the final installment of his mixtape trilogy. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi

The self-proclaimed "Ambassador of Rap for the Capital," Wale (pronounced "wah-lay") was able to transcend his local sensation status and become a national rap contender using go-go-inspired hip-hop as the vehicle for his clever wordplay and music. Olubowale Victor Akintimehin was born in Washington, D.C. in 1984 to Nigerian immigrants who first arrived in America five years prior. Although the family moved to Maryland when the future rapper was ten years old, Wale was mostly raised in suburban D.C. He attended both Robert Morris College and Virginia State University on football scholarships, eventually transferring a third time to Bowie State. The music bug had already bitten him hard, though, and soon he quit college altogether to turn to a recording career.


Tyrone William Griffin, Jr. (born April 13, 1985),[1][2] better known by his stage name Ty Dolla Sign (stylized as Ty Dolla $ign or Ty$), is an American hip hop and R&B recording artist from Los Angeles, California. He first gained major recognition in 2010, through his appearance on YG's "Toot It and Boot It," which Ty Dolla Sign wrote and produced for Def Jam Recordings. In the summer of 2013, he signed a record deal with Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Gang Records. He is best known for his hit singles "Paranoid", "Or Nah" and "Blasé",[3] as well as writing the hooks to "Loyal", "Post to Be" and "FourFiveSeconds".


Adolph Thornton Jr. (born August 11, 1985), better known by his stage name Young Dolph, is an American rapper. In February 2016, Dolph released his debut studio album, King of Memphis, which peaked at number 49 on the Billboard200 chart.


Rodriquez Broadnax, better known by his stage name Jacquees, is an American singer-songwriter from Decatur, Georgia. Seeing the recognition as a solo artist, Jacquees also worked with artists, such as T.I., Jagged Edge, Travis Porter, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Trinidad James, August Alsina and Chris Brown, among others. In 2014, Jacquees has signed a recording contract deal and its management to Cash Money Records.


In 2015, he began to set the internet on fire. There was his explosive appearance on Carnage’s single “WDYW” alongside A$AP Ferg and Rich The Kid and later his turn on “Big Racks” for Young Thug’s Slime Season 2. In addition, he spent the summer with DJ Drama, priming the crowd for Wiz Khalifa and Fall Out Boy on their “Boys of Zummer” Tour. However, everything set the stage for his newest mixtape, Luv Is Rage. With support from The Fader, Noisey, XXL, Vibe, HotNewHipHop, and more, Lil Uzi Vert naturally took the spotlight when it dropped.
