Kari Faux
Kari Faux (born Kari Johnson) is an American rapper/singer based out of Little Rock, Arkansas. She is best known for her flamboyant dress, and conversational style of rap. Her songs are most commonly characterized as "internet rap" with repetitive hooks, minimal production, and an emphasis on clever wordplay. Being a product of the new age internet rap, her subject matter usually boasts her unique style and social status among social media that had made her popular. In 2014, Faux released her debut mixtape, Laugh Now, Die Later, which had been received somewhat well from critics, landing a spot on Pitchfork's "Most Overlooked Mixtapes of 2014. The EP would most notably gain the attention of rapper Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino. Glover remixed Faux's "No Small Talk," and featured it on his own mixtape, "STN MTN." Currently, Kari Faux is located in Los Angeles, California; having moved from Little Rock, in order to further develop her career and produce more music.
Patrice Cherele Swygert best known as Cherele is the Aquarian born 90’s baby from Fort Myers, Florida who grew an appreciation for music at a young age. Her mother noticed and placed her in piano lessons by the age of 3. Despite her diverse taste, Hip Hop called to her at the tender age of 7 and by 9 she was already creating music of her own. A small town couldn’t hold her big dreams so she relocated to Miami in 2013 where she collaborated with producer LeMieuX for her first LP titled Paradise Lost. The project debuted in April 2015 through FACT Mag in the UK and received rave reviews from major publications such as HotNewHipHop, Ashley Outrageous, and Respect Magazine. Cherele was even named one of Florida’s 5 Favorite Rising Stars by Pigeons and Planes. Not to mention she was nominated for 5 Mieux Magazine awards including Best Debut Project, Best Single, Best South Florida Artist, Best Female Artist, and Video Of The Year in 2015.

Cherele had the opportunity to tour alongside Awful Record’s Lord Narf and Goth Money's Black Kray where she had her first taste of life on the road. In 2016, her single “vi$ions” was featured on HBO’s hit show Insecure and this is only the early stages of the star that is to emerge. This small town bread, big city spitter is transcending genres with her new direction. With inspirations such as M.I.A., Santigold, and Peaches and LeMieuX in her creative corner, you can only imagine the sounds you will see with her next project titled .phases//. The project is new experimental fusion of various styles with a rhythmic kick to keep you moving. Cherele’s new playfully infectious sound sets the tone for the colorful visual representation that is Cherele. As she works on new music and prepares to premier her new single, there’s no telling how far Cherele will go, but you can be sure that there’s nothing slowing her down.
