Clip: Ready To Die
Newcomer to the Orlando scene, but definitely not new to music, Clip has been hard at work. Originally from Brazil, but raised in Southern Florida, his style of music is just as diverse as his background. With notable collaborations that include Curren$y’s Jet Life artist, Street Wiz, and publications on MiamiFadeCounty.com, Clip is artist to keep watch for.

Bobbi Ruffin: My Drug
A young lady wtih a voice like NONE other, Bobbi Ruffin has continuously amazed everyone who has the pleasure of hearing her over any record. With multiple performances at Orlando aLive, Bobbi has made Orlando fall in love with her voice and eclectic style. Moving to Orlando in 2010 to attend Full Sail University to receive her Masters, Miss Ruffin is no stranger to hard work. A tagline that reads, “Will work for good music” and aspirations of assisting young artists create and promote positive urban music through her non-profit organization Feed The Streets, Inc., Bobbi is more than just your average girl on the street.

Ground Zero: Certified Cool (Remix)
Ground Zero is a group of artists from different backgrounds and one common goal. The group of men who were formed in 2004 by it’s founding members, Caliber & Fame, are the definition of dedication when it comes to hip-hop. With the latest additions of Ray & Rino, it wasn’t difficult to see the chemistry that each member would have with one another. The unique sound, dope vibes and laid back style of the group further confirms why they are “Certified Cool”. Take a listen to the track below and give it a vote if you’re feeling it!
Ivan: Everyday (I Pray)
One of the dopest artists I’ve heard in a while, Ivan, has been making moves all around The City Beautiful! Born and raised in the 407, Ivan has experienced a whirlwind of situations when it comes to his music. Now, a solo act after splitting from two previous groups, he has come to show everyone that he has big plans for the future. With numerious features on 102 Jamz for his freestyle of F.U.N.’s hit single “We Are Young”, this young kid is on his way to the top. His single, “Everyday (I Pray)”, can be heard below!
