Devin The Dude
Devin The Dude
Devin Copeland,better known by his stage name Devin the Dude, is a Houston hip hop artist who started out as a member of the Odd Squad, later known as the Coughee Brothaz, a group of rappers signed to Rap-A-Lot Records.

The label is notable for being the home of hip-hop artists such as Geto Boys, Scarface, and Too Much Trouble. Devin Copeland moved on to become part of Scarface's Facemob, who is also a member of the Coughee Brothaz, before going solo in 1998.

Copeland has released six solo albums: “The Dude” 1998), “Just Tryin' ta Live” (2002), “To tha X-Treme” (2004), “Waitin' to Inhale” (2007), “Landing Gear” (2008), and “Suite 420” (2010). He also made a number of guest appearances, including on Dr. Dre's "Fuck You" in 1999, and De La Soul's "Baby Phat" in 2001, and on Tech N9ne's "After Party" 2010 off of The Gates Mixed Plate.

In 2008, he ended his 15 year relationship with Houston based Rap-A-Lot Records after he decided not to renew his contract. Later that year, he signed with indie label Razor & Tie. Devin is currently being distributed by E1 Entertainment, formerly Koch. Despite being a critical success, Devin the Dude has not achieved success in the mainstream but continues to be a well-known underground hip-hop artist. The “New York Times” has called him "A brilliant oddball with a spaced-out flow."

In addition, he has been called "Rap's best-kept secret" and "Your favorite rapper's favorite rapper." In 2007, he appeared in a documentary titled “Screwed In Houston” produced by VBS/Vice Magazine that details the history of the Houston rap scene.
Jarv Dee
Jarv Dee
You can't miss Jarv Dee in a lineup—he's a bulldog, the tatted­ up, gold­ slugged young general of Seattle's MOOR GANG crew, which he co-­chairs along with the rising drug­ rap slugger Nacho Picasso. Jarv's own unique sound is somewhere between the high­ pitched hype of Meek Mill and classic catfish & grits Pimp C blues. Jarv's distinctive voice, effortless hooks, and electric stage show have made him a room­ packing favorite in Seattle's high­ performing best­ kept­ secret rap scene.

Whether with his Gang or as part of the slapping space­ funk art­ rap collective Kingdom Crumbs, Jarv is a standout that demands attention. Currently creeping on a solo come up via his next release and a string of crisp visuals, Jarv Dee is set to make a splash nationally.And what better time than now with the release of his second full length "Sattelites SWISHERS, and Spaceships", in which Jarv expresses his eclectic influences and avenues in contemporary Hip Hop In Seattle and beyond. Such soulful sampled R&B flavor as "Mary Im In Love" and all the way to 808 trap hits like "High Expectations" Jarv embodies what you want in a performer and musician.
