R.A. The Rugged Man
R.A. the Rugged Man, is an emcee from Suffolk County, New York on Long Island. At 18, R.A. signed with Jive Records and then in the mid 90's signed with Priority Records/EMI, his contract was later absorbed by Capitol records before going independent in the early 2000s. Throughout his career he's worked with various artists including the Notorious B.I.G., Mobb Deep, Sadat X, Akinyele, Chuck D of Public Enemy, Jedi Mind Tricks, Kool G Rap, Wu-Tang Clan, Masta Killa, Killah Priest, and producers Trackmasters, Erick Sermon, DJ Quik, Buckwild, Alchemist, and Ayatollah. He was featured on all three of Rawkus's Soundbombing albums, as well as the platinum-selling WWF Aggression album, performing the theme song for Chris Jericho. In Ego Trip (magazine) Vol. 1, Issue 3, the Notorious B.I.G. was quoted as saying, "I thought I was the illest," when referring to R.A. In 2004 he released the album "Die, Rugged Man, Die" on Brooklyn based label Nature Sounds. R.A. has cameos in several music videos including Havoc from Mobb Deep's "I'm the boss," and Sadat X's "Throw the Ball" and "Old Man" featuring Wu-Tang Clan's RZA, Masta Killa and Ol' Dirty Bastard in one of ODB's final video appearances.

Nauticult
Hip-Hop three-piece band based in Seattle. Comprised of Rapper/Vocalist Argonaut (Austin Sankey), guitarist Dylan Berry, and drummer Evan Fitzgerald. Nauticult formed in early 2016, drawing from genetically modified heavy metal, jazz, psychedelic, and boom-bap esoteric hip-hop. Lyrically, the band is driven by psychological themes, with occult and pop culture references and critiques, juxtaposed against heavy genre-bending guitar riffs and polyrhythmic multidimensional drums.
Fever Point
