Twiztid
Twiztid
Pop music is a bloated, rotting corpse and The Wicked Shit is the undead pulse hidden deep within. If you look into the shadows, past the smoke and mirrors of MTV and playlist radio, and into the cold, hard streets, you'll find the underground of music. A place where innovation thrives and inspiration drives. Unapologetic, unique artists have carved a niche for fans fed up with the glamour-mag faces and spoon-fed lyrics of modern music, and offer them something more.

Where most rappers celebrate the urban lifestyle with the same old themes and the same old image, Twiztid peel away the gloss and expose the innards. With an oversized butcher knife. They take the hard edge of theatrical rock-and-roll and temper it with gritty hip-hop to create a musical monstrosity so dangerously real it must be hidden with facepaint. These aren't casual gangsters; their painted personas let them explore the darkest corners of the human psyche, from superhero fantasies to horror film legacies. With their ruthless raps, they can explore every recess of their audience's experiences, every sentimental reflection and every sinister urge. By becoming something unreal, they are free to be real. Whether it's on-stage devastation or home stereo infiltration, Twiztid's music will take you somewhere you've never been before. The scariest part is when you don't want to come back…
BLAZE YA DEAD HOMIE
BLAZE YA DEAD HOMIE
Rouleau began rapping at the age of 17, while in Romeo High School, and performed at local clubs on the east side of Detroit.[1] Rouleau performed as a member of 2 Krazy Devils (with Skrapz) under the stage name Psycho C.[2] Rouleau's first big performance was at the Ritz in Roseville, where he and James Lowery opened for House of Krazees.[1] House of Krazees member The R.O.C. later produced 2 Krazy Devils' only album, Flipped Insanity, before the group disbanded in 1996.[2]

Rouleau joined several groups, but no material was released. When Rouleau was about to give up rapping, he was encouraged to join Psychopathic Records, where he initially started out as a member of Insane Clown Posse's road crew.[1][3] He appeared on Twiztid's Mostasteless album, and occasionally acted as a hype man in live concerts.[4] Rouleau joined Dark Lotus and Psychopathic Rydas, performing in the latter under the stage name "Cell Block."[4] In 2000, Rouleau released a solo EP, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, establishing his character as a gang member killed in the late 1980s.[2] Rouleau toured major cities across the country to support the release, including a debut at the Gathering of the Juggalos.[4][5]

The LP 1 Less G N Da Hood was recorded and released in 2001, followed by continued touring and appearances on several Psychopathic releases.[5] On October 19, 2004, Rouleau released his second studio album, Colton Grundy: The Undying. It peaked at #9 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart, #16 on the Top Independent Albums chart, #57 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, #167 on the Top Internet Albums chart, and #167 on the Billboard 200.[6] Rouleau formed the group Drive-By with Lowery, releasing the album Pony Down (Prelude) in 2005. The following year, Rouleau contributed two tracks to the video game 25 To Life, which also featured music by Tupac Shakur, Public Enemy, DMX, Geto Boys and Tech N9ne.[7] On August 21, 2007, Rouleau released his third studio album, Clockwork Gray. It peaked at #14 on the Top Independent Albums chart and at #34 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.[6] The album features Twiztid, The R.O.C., Boondox and Violent J. Twiztid, Blaze & The R.O.C. formed the group Samhein Witch Killaz. The song "Inside Looking Out" was a SWK song. Unfortunatally in 2011 the question was asked if there would ever be a SWK EP or full length album, and it was confirmed that SWK would not be putting out any EP's or full length albums. The R.O.C. & Blaze formed the group Zodiac MPrint, and the song "I'll Connect" was a Zodiac MPrint song. In late 2013 after Blaze left Psychopathic Records, he and The. R.O.C. started recording a new Zodiac MPrint cd, unknown if it's a EP or full length album. On The R.O.C.'s Twitter account he announced that he has been bumping the rough cuts to the new Zodiac MPrint cd around October/November 2013. The name "Skywalkers" has been thrown around as the title for the cd, but in the "Clockwork Gray" pamphlet there was a promotional picture of Zodiac signs and the upcoming Zodiac cd to be called "Horrorscope".

Rouleau's fourth studio album, Gang Rags, was released on June 22, 2010 and debuted number 52 on the Billboard 200.[8][9] While on the 2011 Drive-By Tour, he released Gang Rags Extended Version (Uncut + Uncensored).[10]

In March 2013, Joseph Bruce speculated that Blaze Ya Dead Homie had left the label.[1] Blaze later spoke openly about the subject during a concert, stating that he had not departed from Psychopathic. ICP publicly apologized to Blaze via Twitter for the misunderstanding,[2][3] but later confirmed during the Gathering of the Juggalos that Rouleau had indeed parted ways with Psychopathic. Later in 2013 Blaze did an interview with NE Hip Hop, saying that he had be hanging out with Strange Music in Kansas City, Missouri. He also went on to say that he wants to do some stuff with other artists he would like to work with, and also said that his fans will start seeing more of him after 2013. At the Days of Dead convention with Twiztid in early Februarty 2014 it was announced that Blaze Ya Dead Homie had signed with Twiztid's new record label.
Whitney Peyton
Whitney Peyton
If artists like Machine Gun Kelly, Eminem, and Missy Elliott miraculously had a pale love child that somewhat resembled Hayley Williams of Paramore, she would be just like Whitney Peyton. W.P. is a unique emcee, with a firecracker personality, hailing from the outskirts of Philadelphia, PA. Beginning close to home she became, and generally still holds the #1 spot on The Hip Hop Charts on Reverbnation.com in Philadelphia. Her continuous drive has also gained her several nominations (and wins) at the Lehigh Valley Music Awards (PA) for categories including “Best New Artist”, “Best Lyricist”, “Best Live Performer”, “Best Female Solo Artist” and “Best Hip Hop Performer” from 2010 through 2014. Whitney was nominated in the 2014 Tri-State Indie Music Awards (PA, NY, NJ, DE, MD) for “Emerging Hip-Hop Artist of the Year” and won.
Equipped with catchy hooks and relatable rap verses, she is the top voted unsigned artist in her home state on MTV2’s “On The Rise” contest and has been interviewed and played on numerous independent, college, and online radio stations. With no label or management, the rapper has also landed various TV spots, swept the pages of multiple magazines and music blogs internationally, as well as accumulated over 1 Million+ total YouTube views on her channel.
With an undeniable stage presence, W.P. has headlined countless packed events as well as performed with well-known acts including Jadakiss, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, Sheek Louch, Hopsin, Rittz, Big K.R.I.T., MIMS, Tech N9ne, Paul Wall, Vanilla Ice, TWIZTID, R.A. the Rugged Man, DMX, and many more! She has collaborated on songs with Bizarre (of D12), Cassidy, Da Mafia 6ix (formerly Three 6 Mafia), WAX, MIMS, Daddy X and Dirtball (of Kottonmouth Kings), Caskey (YMCMB), Layzie Bone (of Bone Thugs N Harmony), Spectacular (of Pretty Ricky), Mistah F.A.B., Spice 1, Chris Webby, R.A. The Rugged Man, and the list goes on!
Despite her edgy image and attitude, Whitney was chosen to be one of the faces of Philadelphia’s “Unlitter Us” Campaign in 2010. TV spots for the campaign aired city-wide (and in surrounding areas) through 2011 on stations such as MTV, BET, Vh1, Comedy Central, ABC, and NBC. Whitney was featured using her rap ability in a spoken word poem she wrote about cleaning up the city streets. She also appeared in print and transportation ads, while additionally being seen alongside Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter at anti-litter rallies, and community events. urther proving her versatility as an artist, W.P. took part in writing and recording on an Anti-Bullying album geared toward Children in late 2011. The album gained immediate recognition winning a Grammy Award for “Best Children’s Album” at the 54th annual Grammy Awards in 2012 as well as a Nappa Honors Award, and Parent’s Choice Gold Award from the Parent’s ChoiceFoundation.
Whitney’s perseverance, and rapidly growing fan base earned her spots on both a full Canadian tour with Twiztid as well as a 40-date USA tour with rap legend, R.A. The Rugged Man (of Nature Sounds), and Potluck (of Suburban Noize) in 2013. In 2014 she continued her momentum on a 60-date National Tour with Oscar Winning rap group Three 6 Mafia (now known as Da Mafia 6ix) followed by a run as direct support for highly controversial electronica group Blood on the Dance Floor. Never missing a beat, Whitney Peyton is taking 2015 by storm by headlining her own touring dates while working on new music and visuals.
Despite her many hard-earned accolades W.P. still considers herself an “Underdog” in many ways. Having achieved so much independently, with an image not easily associated with hip-hop, it’s easy to tell that her fans appreciate her home-grown attitude and “Team Underdog” movement. After releasing several free EP’s she dropped what she considers her debut album, “On The Brink” last year (Jan. 2014). “On the Brink” features well-known acts from both the mainstream and underground and sold several thousand units worldwide with no official distribution! As a gift to her fans W.P. released a free EP entitled “Fear of Falling” this past March 2015 as an appetizer for a full-length album set to release later this year. If this biography is your first time seeing the name “Whitney Peyton” keep your eyes open because it won’t be the last.
