Born Nybrea Montague, the artist now known as Gabby Gabanna was born in Charlotte, North Carolina — and started rapping at the mere age of 11. Being raised by an Aunt with a hustler mentality and in an environment that laid precedent to the streets, Gabby G (AKA Gabby Dinero) is an artist who knows no limits when it comes to working for what she wants. Her most recent single, P.G.S.T.M., is a testament to her dedication, displaying a unique commitment to her craft of rapping and songwriting. With punchy flows, confident delivery, and a sharp pen, Gabby G is proving herself to be a rising artist soon to be on par with some of the most prominent trap artists in the scene.

Baltimore native Yadi Sixx is shaping up to be everyone’s vamp-trap dream girl with her latest single ‘Demonias’. Drawing from punk, RnB, and hip-hop influences, Yadi Sixx is a unique blend of different sounds and genres, packaged into a young woman who is unafraid to be herself and bare her soul in her lyrics. ‘Demonias’ displays the artist in a vulnerable form without losing her distinct hype and upbeat aura. With trap-pop-like airy vocals, Yadi Sixx tells listeners about the mental struggles she has experienced, fighting against urges to quit on her dream and herself. As Yadi Sixx continues to grow and elevate, she will surely be an artist the scene will have their eye on.
