In any case, for those who might wanna go see Uncle Juve and Uncle Mysti!

New Orleans natives and hip-hop heavy hitters take the stage for an explosive show. (Or, so they say!)

Juvenile and MystikalJuvenile brings a big selection of hits to the stage, including his anthem “Back That Azz Up,” club banger “Ha” and the his No. 1 Billboard hit “Slow Motion.” Multi-platinum selling artist Mystikal performs such iconic tracks as “Danger,” “Shake it Fast,” and “Feel Right”.

Mystikal – Multi-platinum, 3x Grammy nominee Mystikal is back with his signature gruff sound and headed straight to the top of the charts. Let’s Get Ready was released in 2000 and contained “Danger (Been So Long)”, which featured rising pop star Nivea, and was the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs number-one single in June 2001. Let’s Get Ready debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200.

Juvenile – New Orleans-based gangsta rapper Juvenile was born Terius Gray. After beginning his performing career in his teens, he released a 1995 album on Warlock titled Being Myself. He eventually crossed paths with Cash Money label owners Ronald “Suga Slim” and Brian “Baby” Williams, who issued 1996’s Solja Rags; the album became a major underground hit and set the stage for the release of 1998’s 400 Degreez. In 1999, with Juvenile’s popularity growing, Solja Rags was reissued nationally, and Warlock jumped on the bandwagon with a remixed version of Being Myself. The year ended with the release of a new studio effort, Tha G-Code, followed by Project English two years later in 2001. In 2002 he left Cash Money and formed his own collective, the UTP Playas (Uptown Project Playas), with whom he recorded a posse album, The Compilation. The album went nowhere and a year later he was back on Cash Money and releasing Juve the Great, which featured the chart-topping hit “Slow Motion.” The 2005 “Noila Clap” single from the UTP Playas was another big track, and Juvenile was ready once again to shop for a new label. As he was signing a new contract with Asylum, his Slidell, Louisiana home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The hurricane and its grim aftermath were hot topics on his chart-topping 2006 album Reality Check. His next two albums — Cocky & Confident (2009) and Beast Mode (2010) — featured much lighter material. In 2011 he released Rejuvenation, an album primarily produced by Mannie Fresh.

Paigey Cakey

Paigey Cakey is a rising success collaborating with the likes of Stormzy, Abel Miller and Chip. Paigey is becoming an increasingly influential female artist within the UK’s growing hip-hop and rap scene. From Hackney in London, Paigey has formed her own individual form of music using her own rhythms and melodies:

“Growing up my biggest inspirations were Miss Dynamite and Missy Elliot. Before I was Paigey Cakey I was actually ‘Hype Dynamite’ because I’m hyper and because I just wanted to be Miss Dynamite.” Paigey states, “I used to look up to Teyana Taylor. I loved her kind of swagger before she had the baby, cos she used to be real tomboy. She had her sexy days too.”

Jerry Williams

Acclaimed one to watch in 2017 by BT, Jerry Williams draws her inspiration from bands such as Vampire Weekend, Slow Club and Coldplay. The 21 year old released her debut EP ‘Cold Beer’, a collection of songs narrating and documenting her life growing up in Portsmouth:
“I wrote ‘Cold Beer’ about a night out I had in London. I was just about to play a gig and this guy put a cold beer on my leg as I walking up to the stage. I don’t know, it made me think. It was a cool concept like “oh you put the beer on my leg, were you trying to get my attention?” so I just made up a story around that.“

Once a month, Make it Music will release two music artists simultaneously to feature in exclusive interviews, live performances and bespoke content. The variety of music artists will include a range of unsigned, break-through acts as well as more established, recognised talent. 

Andy Reid, Marketing Director commented:

“The Make it Music project creates an fantastic partnership between ellesse and some of the best acts and artists coming through right now. We’re incredibly excited to be involved with this talent”.

Not skipping a beat, Nas is presenting a lyrical execution of reality driven verses. The melodic beat coupled with his smooth swagger and nasir based wordplay allows for more than just a track.

The two brothers from Tupelo, Mississippi have long eclipsed the status as a household name in rap, conquering Billboard’s Hot 100 #1 spot and holding it down for weeks.

The campaign’s photos, shot during Rae Sremmurd’s sold out SremmLife II Tour through Europe, capture the characteristic energy that the fashion-savvy brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi bring to each and every one of their performances while showing off highlights from CAYLER & SONS’ spring/summer ’17 collection as well as the newly launched All Day Denim program.
