Flawless
Flawless
“It” Factor. Superstar. Celebrity. Many are manufactured, but few are born with it. Alberto “Flawless” Martinez is a natural artist. A native of Providence, Rhode Island, Flawless was surrounded by music at an early age. Tagging along with his stepfather who worked for a tour bus company, it gave him the chance to experience what life on the road was like. “I was already in love with music, but being on the road showed me what kind of hard work it took to take things to the next level.” Growing up in a small town inspired the young star to begin focusing on his future goal of becoming a recording artist. “Rhode Island is very small and my town is even smaller. Everyone knows everyone. It forced me to work harder to get out and get more exposure.” Fusing his love for hip-hop and R&B, the 16-year-old began recording and writing original music with the help of a local producer. As he began to take over the local scene, he realized it wasn’t enough. In 2010, Flawless packed up his belongings and moved to Atlanta Georgia in hopes of expanding his brand in a thriving market. Only two months after, Flawless won Hot 107.9’s “Birthday Bash” competition to open up for Ludacris and Rick Ross in Philips Arena for a sold out 20,000 fans. He began to receive recognition from all major outlets in the Atlanta area opening for all major artist in the city. In 2011, Flawless opened up for Tech N9ne (Strange Music), and the Independent monster caught wind of the up and comer before watching his set. Following that night, Tech N9ne invited Flawless on a 48 city nation-wide tour called “The Lost Cities Tour.” Since then Flawless has been striking across the country on countless tours building his brand and “Flawless Family” as he refers to as his fans. His experience including “The Lost Cities” tour with Tech N9ne includes, “Rolling Stone” tour with Stevie Stone, “Flawless Experience” tour, “Bitch I’m Back” tour with Mayday, “HallowStrange” tour with Caskey (YMCMB) and Prozak (Strange Music), along with openings for Joe Budden, Joel Ortiz, Wu Tang, Fabolous, French Montana, Waka Flaka, and More. With his current material, Flawless will be known as the pioneer who paves the way for a new sound in hip hop that will reach multiple generations. True fans of lyrics, hip-hop and R&B are in for a real treat. His new album, “It’s Different”, epitomizes his ability to captivate his fans through his story-telling lyrics leaving them wanting for more. This young sensation brings his music to life painting a picture only a true artist can paint. With a musical show second to none, we all can agree he is Flawless.
Kontages
Kontages
Kontages (Jacob Palermo) was born in the concrete jungle known as the Bronx and parents knew there was something special about him at an early age. At just five years old Kontages wrote his first story. From that moment on there was no looking back.
Constant gang violence and drug activity didn’t sit well with his parents. His Dad (born in Puerto Rico) along with his Mom (born in Brooklyn) wanted a better life for him, his older two brothers and sister so at the age of eleven his family moved to Omaha, Nebraska. Omaha was far different from the cultural melting pot of New York. Gone were the summer days of running through the fire hydrant as a much smaller substitute for a pool. You can take a boy out of the Bronx, but you can’t take the Bronx out of the boy.
A new city and culture made it hard to adapt at first. With more freedom because of the lower crime rate, Kontages found time to get into trouble. It wasn’t long before the law became involved in his life. While on probation in his early twenties, Kontages turned to his writing for release. These writings became a body of work called “Collection of Thoughts” which was released September of 2010. A song titled “My Lifetime” off of that album was submitted to a song writing contest by the State of Nebraska and while waiting for the results of this submission he didn’t stand still. He decided to enroll in college to study business-destined to avoid being another minority statistic. Kontages was chosen to represent the State in the “Tune My Life” campaign. This campaign allowed Kontages to come into contact with Grammy Award winning engineer ND Rock. Soon, he was on a plane to write and record in California.
Since then Kontages has been on a roll. First, going on tour with Murphy Lee throughout the Midwest, then opening up for artists such as Rittz, Tech Nine, Snow Tha Product, Ces Cru, Jarren Benton, Caskey, Freddie Gibbs and Nick Cannons’ Psych Ward Druggies. He has performed at SXSW along with Big Mike and Young Bleed. Recently Kontages had the opportunity to record a track with Krizz Kaliko that will be featured on his upcoming “Infection” album written by Kontages and engineered by Grammy Award winner ND Rock.
Kontages has accomplished all this and still managed to complete his schooling earning an MBA with a concentration in marketing while zig zagging the country from California all the way to New York and back again. He believes life is what you make it and if you see it you can create it. It’s crazy to think that this is just the beginning. Kontages Music-Catch it.

No Name Bones
No Name Bones
Highly underestimated Bradyn "No Name Bones" Ledford has grown larger than most would have expected. rising out of broken arrow ok. his unusual styles have amazed even the largest of the doubters. intellectual yet highly explicit, his words speak of the truth, and how life isnt always a fairy tale. No name Bones Creates an imagery in his songs and shows emotion and darkness that is rarely seen in the hip hop world. His music has spread from Hawaii all the way to Harlem New York And Who knows where in between .
