Pop music is a bloated, rotting corpse and The Wicked Shit is the undead pulse hidden deep within. If you look into the shadows, past the smoke and mirrors of MTV and playlist radio, and into the cold, hard streets, you’ll find the underground of music. A place where innovation thrives and inspiration drives. Unapologetic, unique artists have carved a niche for fans fed up with the glamour-mag faces and spoon-fed lyrics of modern music, and offer them something more.
Where most rappers celebrate the urban lifestyle with the same old themes and the same old image, Twiztid peel away the gloss and expose the innards. With an oversized butcher knife. They take the hard edge of theatrical rock-and-roll and temper it with gritty hip-hop to create a musical monstrosity so dangerously real it must be hidden with facepaint. These aren’t casual gangsters; their painted personas let them explore the darkest corners of the human psyche, from superhero fantasies to horror film legacies. With their ruthless raps, they can explore every recess of their audience’s experiences, every sentimental reflection and every sinister urge. By becoming something unreal, they are free to be real. Whether it’s on-stage devastation or home stereo infiltration, Twiztid’s music will take you somewhere you’ve never been before. The scariest part is when you don’t want to come back…
The quest to uncover the truth has given (hed) p.e. new life. While the band has weathered the stormy waters of the music business for over a decade and enjoyed a slew of successful albums, it's their quest for answers that has given them purpose.

Independence is the name of the game for veteran rapper Lil Wyte. After more than a decade in the spotlight, the Memphis songwriter has amassed legions of fans worldwide, and consistently attracts new listeners from his catalog of intense solo and collaborative albums.
On June 19, 2012, Lil Wyte will release his fifth solo album Still Doubted? via his own Wyte Music Records, in conjunction with Three 6 Mafia's Hypnotize Minds and Memphis-based indie powerhouse Select-O-Hits.
Known across the nation as Hypnotize Minds riot-starter and a living Southern rap legend, the Memphis, TN native from the north side has made a career out of jaw-dropping lyrical turns of phrase, unlimited aggressive energy, and controversial subject matter.
Lil Wyte is now in the perfect position to cement his musical mark for the rest of his career. “I want to be the guy who did whatever he wanted, he didn’t care, didn’t give a f**k. People will understand my music was the gateway to doing everything I was supposed to do.”
Hip-hop artists often glamorize the lives of drug kingpins, gangsters, and pimps. Unfortunately Pablo Escobar, John Gotti, and Hugh Hefner don't write raps, but Humboldt hip-hop duo Potluck do and have elevated the standard for weed based hip-hop. Born and raised in the endless Marijuana fields of Humboldt County, California, the weed capital of the world, Potluck has lived constantly surrounded by acres of weed plants, thousands of pounds, and the inventors of all the popular strains. Through the power of music, Potluck tells the full story of the only drug business where the hippie is king and peace, love, and happiness reign supreme.
