Chill Moody & the Philly All-Stars
Chill Moody cemented his status as one of the top lyricists & performers to hit Philadelphia in years when he won “Best Rapper” in Philadelphia Magazine’s annual “Best of Philly” issue. He was also named Philadelphia’s Music Ambassador by Councilman David Oh, due to his tireless efforts to "put the city on" as well as his local & national accomplishments over the years. A West Philadelphia native, his lifestyle brand “nicethings” now includes clothing, a digital distribution label (nicethingsMUSIC), and even a line of craft beer (nicethingsIPA, a collaboration with Dock Street Brewery). He recently partnered with Donn T, sister of Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, to start a new group called “&More”.
Mic Stew
Mic Stew
Mic Stewart is an American rapper/recording artist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In his early years he quickly became known as one of Philly’s premier freestylers by open mic’ing and cyphering all over the city’s dense musical landscape. By 2010 he had cultivated a buzz that landed him on stage with touring acts Big KRIT, Questlove, Black Thought, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and more. All of his groundwork as a local wordsmith culminated in him being selected for the national Red Bull Emsee freestyle competition in 2011–he bested MCs from Philly and went on to win the national Red Bull Emsee title in Atlanta in 2012, a victory that landed him in the studio with now-heavyweight producer duo THC (of Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, and A$AP Rocky fame).

Determined to assert himself as a songwriter and recording artist, Mic Stew followed his national success with a series of independent releases. PEACEWORLD (2013), The Big L Mixtape (2014), the white label single All Black Chucks (2015), and his latest EP Higher Purpose (2015), all of which received critical acclaim and national digital Distribution deals via Soulspazm Records.

Stewart is currently writing and recording his second full length LP, tentatively untitled, with his sight set on finding representation, touring, and major label partnership.
