A Puerto Rican rapper from Brooklyn who built a buzz with his series of rhyme marathons entitled "125 Grams," Joell Ortiz eventually signed with Dr. Dre's Aftermath label. Ortiz earned initial attention with his no-frills attitude and rhyming prowess, being featured in critical polls in magazines like XXL and The Source. While working on his debut for Aftermath, Ortiz released a collection that is centered around his dense, rhyme-based work, The Brick: Bodega Chronicles, to act as a lead-up to his more "official" debut. Ortiz later joined Slaughterhouse, a Hip-Hop group consisting of rappers Crooked I, Joe Budden, and Royce da 5'9".
DJ Raff and Latin Bitman are teaming up for RVSB, the debut collaboration from two of the most creative minds in Latin Electronica, which was released on March 19th of this year. Pushing the boundaries of bass heavy Hip-Hop and high-energy percussive beats, RVSB lives on the cutting edge of electronic dance music, with elements of trap, juke and futuristic house. Both originally from Chile, a hot bed of new Latin American Pop, Latin Bitman and DJ Raff’s critically-acclaimed solo albums have long been crowd favorites, recently debuting at #1 on the World Music Charts at tastemaker station KEXP (Seattle).
