Xavier Young, a.k.a. Zavy, is a 20-year-old artist from southern California who can both sing and rap with powerful emotion. Zavy grew up in Orange County listening to a wide variety of music. His uncle, J.R., is the lead singer for Common Kings, an island reggae group whose many tours have included several shows at the WOW Hall. Surrounded by the musical passion of his family, Xavier started developing his talent for writing and performing early. His efforts began to draw attention in high school. He sang at his graduation and during his senior year a video of him rapping about the death of his grandfather went viral.
From Calabasas, CA Watrcup is stepping into the music industry at twenty years young. Watr’s witty lyricism and alternative vibe makes him stand out as one of underground rap’s most promising new artists. With fifteen songs out and hundreds on the way, Watr has been garnering a west coast fan base, performing shows in LA and Eugene and opening for big names like Nef the Pharaoh and Curren$y.
Rapper, singer, songwriter and producer Christian Haywood a.k.a. Haywood released his second official EP, Product, on October 21. After graduating from the University of Oregon in 2015, Haywood was signed to The Private Plane, a record label created by Malik Yusef of Kanye West’s GOOD Music. Since then he’s started his own music business called EL-Clique Entertainment LLC — an independent record label / music collective, as well as a merchandise clothing line and his own recording studio.
Born and raised in Cincinnati and now residing in Los Angeles, rapper and Xanarchy member Aris Ray (older brother of rising R&B star Arin Ray) is far from a new face in the music industry.
