Mike Posner, Cisco Adler and Ya Boy are set to make appearances. Wagner Fulco, Bobby Cressey, Carter Wallace, Idriz Tate, Cash Callaway and Dru Decaro round out the band and according to a press release, fans can expect “other artists so big we can’t even say their names.”>

In other news, Anthony Cruz, better known as AZ, has created a new way for some artists to release their music online. WavyTune is a new site set to bring independent artists, underground acts and more to a place where their music can be sold and purchased. The site hopes to capitalize on the growing digital sales market, while also giving fans the option to listen to untapped talent and more established artists in one place.
As of now, WavyTunes can be found on HeyAZ.com.
Finally, Roots and Branches is an Oakland, CA organization designed to get young people off of the streets and into a more positive environment, one that would allow them to get involved in enrichment activities and one that provides educational opportunities. In an effort to raise awareness of the organization, Up from the Underground was organized.
Up from the Underground will showcase various underground Hip Hop artists including Abdan, Baybe Champ, Nima Fadavi, Chosen Few and DJ Basta. All local high school students get in free with an I.D. and others can support by purchasing $5 tickets. All proceeds directly go to Roots and Branches.
The organization’s mission says exactly what the organization is about.
“By activating public space in Oakland with art, music and food we create a safe platform for dialogue between community members. Accessible art and music provides with youth with an outlet for self-empowerment. Our portable stage hosts performances from local talent and actively engages all in a creative process.”
