Hailing from Cleveland, OH, Alex Forte is an artist who seems intent on the truth. One listen to his catalogue and most recent single ‘BLACK’ demonstrates his commitment to thoughtful lyricism and raw vocals with earnest delivery. As a rapper, writer, and producer, Alex’s take on Hip-Hop combines soul-based melodies with Midwest-style rhymes and flow. His latest drop ‘BLACK’ takes listeners through the journey of his reflections and dreams, and will surely resonate with anyone seeking solace in their identity and goals.

Rap/Soul Canadian artist Sinzere is a performer who doesn’t shy away from the raw and gritty. With witty lyricism and bold flow choices in her latest single ‘JiggaBoo’, Sinzere explores the sinsiter underbelly of entertainment and being a puppet to the industry. Her potent bars call out both the entertainment space for exploiting artists to fulfill their own agendas, while also calling out fame-hungry people for being naive mouthpieces for those in power. Through her vocal delivery, Sinzere is as genuine and determined as her name would suggest.
