A.Dd+

The Cowboys. The Grassy Knoll. J.R. Ewing. The Stanky Leg? Dallas, Texas is known for a wide-array of things. Progressive, forward-thinking hip-hop has typically not been one of them. That has all changed thanks to A.Dd+ (pronounced aye-dee-dee). The fun-loving yet streetwise duo of Paris Pershun and Slim Gravy, moves easily between slang infused anthems (“Innisho”), light-hearted stories about drug addiction (“Can’t Come Down”), and weighty raps about Black male incarceration (“Put You On This Game”). Their 2011 LP When Pigs Fly' and 2013 project DiveHiFlyLo have earned them praise from national media outlets including XXL and Pitchfork, which described the duo as “the rapper and the poet, the spawn of UGK and OutKast, combining street and cerebral.” It is no wonder why their upcoming LP Nawf America has fans buzzing in anticipation."

BOBBY SESSIONS

Born and raised entirely in Dallas, Bobby Sessions has put the city at the forefront during his rise as an artist and plans to be a catalyst for breaking not only himself but also his hometown into the mainstream after long being ignored and misrepresented. “It is important for me to achieve my success from Dallas. Most people have to leave to LA or New York to get recognized but I want to prove we have all the resources in this great city to get a quality artist to the next level.”

XES

In the popular Japanese anime series, Naruto, the title character is an adolescent ninja on the quest to be recognized for greatness. His dream is to become the Hokage, who is the undisputed leader and the strongest of his people. Naruto is driven by the sole belief that he will be the absolute best at what he does. When it comes to making music, Dallas’ own Xes (born X’zavier Edwards) takes cues from the fictional hero he so closely identifies with. Both as an artist and producer, Edwards too strives to be the best at what he does. With the release of his debut project, Xes embarks on his own ninja-like quest for notoriety that has the rapper/singer excited for what’s to come.
