Feli Fame - June 8
Propane Fame is making a lot of noise in the streets of New Jersey with hit singles, "Give & Go," "Wish List" and "Beastie Boy" from the Dirty Laundry album and short film produced under his label MNDS. In this debut episode of Sessions, we follow Feli Fame to Diamond District Studios, an interview with DJEnvy and Hiphopnation on Sirius XM and an intimate showcase at La Petite Mort in NYC. The spotlight is placed on Fame's upcoming album, Everything Starts From Now, which features the buzzworthy "Bleachers" and undeniably catchy "Highlights."
Hi-Rez -- June 10
Could Fort Lauderdale's finest rapper be an 18-year-old that holds the title of having the most downloaded mixtapes from an unsigned artist from South Florida? Log on and find out when Sessions hits the road with Hi-Rez.
Emilio Rojas - June 15
Born to a Venezuelan father and Caucasian mother, Sessions catches Emilio Rojas keeping it real as he shares his struggle to identify with both sides of his heritage. He also gets political, fighting the power on a regular basis, expressing his frustration towards what he believes to be an abusive immigration policy towards Hispanics in the United States through his music.
Audrey Rose -- June 17
The New Jersey singer and songwriter is best known for her remix of YG's hit single "Who Do You Love," but she's got original music that's making fans fall in love too. Her strong vocal range and ability to navigate several genres of music is far from average -- it's on fleek!
Jitta On The Track - June 22
Connecticut's Jitta on the Track had a big year in 2014, and is showing now signs of letting his Lumber Life movement slow down in 2015. The 22-year-old has already toured with Webby and Drake, and has a new mixtape slated to drop this summer.
Chris Rivers -- June 29
The lyrical genius takes after his father, the late Big Pun. However, he's determined to carve out a name for himself in New York's underground hip-hop scene just as his father did in the Bronx. The talented MC is letting us know what he's about with heavy hitters like his recently released single "War Room."
