OLD MAN SAXON
Old Man Saxon is a rapper from Denver, most recently featured as the crowd favorite on the hit Netflix series with Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and TI, Rhythm + Flow.
Saxon’s been a rapper since he was 13. His music has been featured on HBO’s Silicon Valley, Netflix’s hit film Someone Great, and Madden commercials. The music video for his hit single “The Perils” had over 100,000 YouTube hits in its first 24 hours of release (now at 3.3M, and 3M on Spotify). He’s performed at Hip Hop Kemp in Czech Republic and Hiero Day in Oakland, and he’s opened for artists such as Devin the Dude, Camron, Ghostface Killah, Andre Nickatina, Curren$y and Oddisee. Since his first headline show sold out at The Marquis in November, he’s officially on tour, with dates in Denver, LA, SF, Atlanta, New York, Philly and more.
In just two years, Old Man Saxon has gone from broke & homeless in Los Angeles to esteemed rap professor, father and international entertainer. He has released 3 EPs – The Perils, The Pursuit, and Goldman Sax. His first LP, The Peacock Honey, dropped on December 6.
Haviah Mighty didn’t need to change her birth name when she decided to dedicate her career to music. In fact, Mighty couldn’t be more accurate a word to describe the artist, named one of XXL’s 15 Toronto Rappers You Should Know in 2019. Raised in a musical household in Brampton, Ontario, Mighty started singing at the age of 4, rapping at 11, and producing at 15. Well-known for being one of the three MCs who make up The Sorority — a hip-hop group born during an all-female cypher on International Women’s Day in 2016 — Mighty is making equally large waves as a solo artist.
Haviah has been releasing music independently since 2009, but it was her project, Flower City (2017), that propelled her solo career into further success. To date, Mighty recently released Polaris Prize-winning album, 13th Floor (2019), her most fully-realized project to date - making history as the first hip hop artist and the first black woman to ever receive the award. Garnering overwhelming praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Billboard, Hot New Hip Hop, and Lyrical Lemonade to name a few, Haviah continues to carve out spaces that boldly defy gendered expectations for women in hip hop.
Haviah’s explosive live show, filled with in-your-face intensity and her fast, technical flows, has also quickly developed her reputation as one to keep an eye on, earning her opening slots for acclaimed artists like Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Rick Ross, Redman and Method Man, Sheck Wes, Nelly, Desiigner, and Kranium.
