New Orleans rapper Moe presents the third volume of his mixtape series Is Anybody Listening, featuring beats from Automatik Beats, Humbeats and Trackanometry. Born at Charity Hospital - the same hospital as Lil Wayne - both his parents were incarcerated by the time he was 6, leaving him in the care of his grandmother. Moe was writing rhymes by the time she moved him to Los Angeles a few years later, "often times rapping about my parents," he says.
A 22 year-old rhymer hailing from Edmonton, Canada, Jo Thrillz first made noise with the release of his mixtape “The Gooniest” in late 2011. Since then, Jo has been building a growing buzz with the release of eye-catching music videos (some of which are approaching 100K views), his second mixtape “Just Another Weekend,” and many full-throttle, energy-packed performances including “Boonstock,” and his sold-out release party. With a huge presence in his local scene and impressive numbers online, Jo Thrillz is ready to let the world know what being “Goony” is really all about.

Though Bad Newz is Adlib’s debut-LP, he is a music industry veteran who has built his fan-base from the ground up on the road with Hip-Hop greats; touring the world over many times with the likes of Jedi Mind Tricks, AOTP, La Coka Nostra and Madchild (Swollen Members) to name a few.
Serving for the better part of the past decade as tour DJ and in-house producer for Yasiin Bey, Preservation is the logical fit to take on the mission of remixing The Ecstatic from top to bottom, in no small part because he produced three of the original album’s tracks. The result is 16 songs – with their original vocals – that meticulously meditate on the original beats and samples of the album, bringing new sounds to a new decade.
