Tef Poe
Tef Poe
Born and raised in Saint Louis, Missouri, Kareem Jackson is a rapper and agent for social change. Through his unwavering integrity, sincere rhymes and passionate actions, Kareem – better known as Tef Poe – is changing the musical and social-political landscape.

Tef built his reputation as a battle rapper in St. Louis and has continued to grow and expand his vision to a broader spectrum. Always having penchant for politics and social justice – the subject matter easily found itself laced throughout his music. However, Tef Poe does not consider himself a “conscious rapper”. Humans are complex and multidimensional. His music is a reflection of that same human experience. This holistic approach has resulted in a healthy catalog of well received projects.

Tef has had the pleasure of working with the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Talib Kweli, Common, I-20, Killer Mike, Royce Da 5'9, and Big Boi. As an independent artist, Tef Poe has successfully broken through internet, radio, and television. Poe has been mentioned in major media outlets such as MSNBC, BET, Noisey, The Source, XXL, Washington Post, New York Times, The Smoking Section, and HipHopDX.com. Tef Poe is also The Source's Unsigned Hype (2012), retired Champion from BET's 106th & Park Freestyle Friday competition (2013)... and even has his own day (August 6th) in the City of Pinelawn, Missouri.

Tef Poe continues to forge his own path as an independent artist... traveling, performing, writing for the Riverfront Times, and actively organizing/fighting for human rights with groups such as Amnesty International, Hands Up United, Organization for Black Struggle, and Justice For Reggie. Tef recorded and released a track titled “Change The World”... and that's exactly what he has set out to do.
Apollo
A Hip Hop and arts enthusiast, Apollo is far from your average MC gracing the forefront of his genre. Hailing from the the North Saint Louis town of Kinloch, Apollo took heed to a culture rich in the Gateway City's historic fabric of Blues and Jazz. These roots in conjunction with an upbringing in one of America's toughest neighborhoods has shaped the element of his music and persona. Drawing influence from his life experiences and having an unearthly talent for choosing the perfect production for his lyrics make Apollo's music both captivating and insightful. His debut mixtape The Untitled has been received with much acclaim, having critics comparing him to contemporaries ranging from Big KRIT to Outkast.
Scotty Wu
Scotty Wu
Scotty Wu is a producer who made his local apperence in 2012 with his first project "The Phantasy EP"
with Kemet the Phantom. Since then he has dropped projects with local legends and the up and comers
of the KC/TX music scene. Names such as Lil Keke, Tum Tum, Lil Ronny MF, Jl of Bhood, The Abnorm,Joey Cool and many many more.
9 years of making beats has helped the 27 old producer really grasp a unique sound for a producer out of Kansas.
