Gifted Gab
Gifted Gab
When she was nine years old, "Gabby" Kadushin used to walk from Montlake Elementary School to her Central District home and write raps about the girls she didn’t like. She memorized radio songs after two listens and spent Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays in church, where her mother sang in the choir. Throughout her childhood and teens, she soaked up the power of East Coast female MCs like Queen Latifah, MC Lyte and Bahamadia. She rode around in cars pumping Bay Area legends like Mac Dre and E-40. Outside of church, Michael Jackson and Tupac were her religious icons.

In 2012, Kadushin, 21, released her first EP under the name Gifted Gab (formerly Gift uh Gab), Queen La’Chiefah, and emerged a fully-formed composite of her influences: Her wall-to-wall, classicist flow combines a combative, unrestrained love of self, codeine-dipped blunts and West Coast lingo with an unflinching acknowledgement of death and those she’s lost. Her influences inform her style, but they don’t stunt her scope; she can take the stage alongside her peers as well as she can open for her idols. She’s the self-possessed female among the many dudes in her crew, Moor Gang, Seattle’s answer to the Wu-Tang Clan.

In May of 2014, Gab dropped her first full length project titled "Girl Rap" and it quickly gained national success. She's opened for legends such as Dj Quik, Rakim,& Cam'ron, performing at this years Sasquatch 2014, and being recognized in XXL and TIME magazine amongst many other outlets.... this girl is on her grind and has talent out the ass and needs to be recognized on a global level.

Get the scope on her journey and support her movement.
Patrice Cherele Swygert best known as Cherele is the Aquarian born 90’s baby from Fort Myers, Florida who grew an appreciation for music at a young age. Her mother noticed and placed her in piano lessons by the age of 3. Despite her diverse taste, Hip Hop called to her at the tender age of 7 and by 9 she was already creating music of her own. A small town couldn’t hold her big dreams so she relocated to Miami in 2013 where she collaborated with producer LeMieuX for her first LP titled Paradise Lost. The project debuted in April 2015 through FACT Mag in the UK and received rave reviews from major publications such as HotNewHipHop, Ashley Outrageous, and Respect Magazine. Cherele was even named one of Florida’s 5 Favorite Rising Stars by Pigeons and Planes. Not to mention she was nominated for 5 Mieux Magazine awards including Best Debut Project, Best Single, Best South Florida Artist, Best Female Artist, and Video Of The Year in 2015.

Cherele had the opportunity to tour alongside Awful Record’s Lord Narf and Goth Money's Black Kray where she had her first taste of life on the road. In 2016, her single “vi$ions” was featured on HBO’s hit show Insecure and this is only the early stages of the star that is to emerge. This small town bread, big city spitter is transcending genres with her new direction. With inspirations such as M.I.A., Santigold, and Peaches and LeMieuX in her creative corner, you can only imagine the sounds you will see with her next project titled .phases//. The project is new experimental fusion of various styles with a rhythmic kick to keep you moving. Cherele’s new playfully infectious sound sets the tone for the colorful visual representation that is Cherele. As she works on new music and prepares to premier her new single, there’s no telling how far Cherele will go, but you can be sure that there’s nothing slowing her down.
