XV http://iamxv.com/ is scheduled to start his L7 tour this month. L7, not referring to the Kicker subwoofer of the same name, but it refers to his motto; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ka9o3bwMw4 Love, Life, Loyalty & Living Long Like Legends. XV's sound is similiar to Drake and his lyrics tend to play on words.
Like XV, Hendersin http://www.youtube.com/user/HendersinMusic has also been compared to Drake and his lyrics tend to play on words as well. This collision of talent is by no means a chance occurance. Hendersin will be supported by DJ Ice http://www.hendersin.com/dj-ice.html who is flying in from Los Angeles just to mixx it up at this show. DJ Ice, a long distance member of #TeamHendersin has DJ'd on both coasts (New York/New England and California) and has been seen spinning in clubs in both Japan and Thailand. For this event only, DJ Ice will be distributing free copies of his new unreleased mixtape "All Ice on Me" as well as Hendersin's latest mixtape "iFly"The show will also feature Emilio Rojas http://emiliorojasmusic.com/ from Rochester, NY who works regularly with DJ Green Lantern http://www.djgreenlantern.tv/. This show will be filmed by videographer Ben Foley http://www.benfoleyofficial.com/ who has done on stage work with artists Mac Miller and Chris Webby.
Donavan Johnso aka XV knew he wanted to pursue a career involving music however, he did not become serious about the venture until a close friend passed away prior to him entering high school. His moniker, XV, the Roman numeral fifteen, refers to his age at the time he began his musical career. XV has worked with producer Michael "Seven" Summers since 2005. After releasing Everybody's Nobody, XV received national attention and subsequently signed a recording contract with Warner Bros. Records in 2010. In an interview with HipHop DX, XV stated that his album The Kid With The Green Backpack is aimed to be released by Summer 2012 with Just Blaze serving as the executive producer.
Never a slave to the industry nor a victim to the problem, Tyronne “Hendersin” Henderson attempts to defy the odds by offering a combination of intellect, emotion, fun, and artistic punch lines. He never wears the mask of others, crediting his hometown and life experiences for his continued rise. Being local enabled word to travel fast and soon enough Hendersin was performing with the likes of Boston’s own - Mr. Lif, the lyrical - Immortal Technique, Jurassic 5’s - Chali 2na, Wu-Tang’s - Raekwon, and 2010’s top Freshman - Wiz Khalifa. Rather than take every show he could get, Hendersin focused his time on creating music and soon began producing his own beats. To date, he has compiled three mixtapes: “On the Road”, “No Rhyme or Reason”, and "Detour", with a fourth, “Henny in ya System,” being released soon.
DJ Ice hails from Newport Beach, California and attended California State University, Sacramento where he learned how to spin from fellow member of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, DJ Jonas Da Blenda from Club 102, 102.5 KSFM. From there he joined the Marine Corps and spun out in Japan and Thailand. Coming back to the states, he met Hendersin DJing bars and clubs in New England while also hosting parties at local colleges. He recently has been DJing in Los Angeles and is set to release his latest mixtape titled "All Ice On Me"
Having a cosign from fellow Rochester-native, and Hiphop's DJ Green Lantern, (who has worked extensively with Eminem, Jay Z, Nas, etc) has solidified Emilio’ s place among today’ s most buzzing artists. Together the duo have released two mixtapes, The Natural and recent Life Without Shame , which feature production and guest appearances from Multi-Platinum and Grammy winning producers and artists, such as Boi-1da, The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Nottz, Needlz, B.o.B., Styles P, Killer Mike, Yelawolf, and more.
