Kasi is someone who does not get the recognition she deserves, at all. She’s an published photographer hailing from the BX and she’s always in the city taking photos of her roots. Kasi has what we like to call the eye for the inner beauty in NYC. She some how finds gems in what we see everyday. Whether it be the train tracks of an undisclosed location or the guys at at the court playing a quick game of 21. Kasi will turn it into a work of art. She is notable, and has received credit and cosigns from members of ASAP MOB and she has also extended her hand into royal roots via working with T’yanna Wallace, Daughter of the late Notorious BIG as well and many others.

Since we’re covering the bronx we HAVE to mention the b-boy crew ,THEBBOYREBLELS. who are they? They’re those guys you find dancing on the subway platform, on the train car, and majority of the time in traffic heavy areas such as TIMES SQUARE. THESE GUYS ARE TALENTED. There is no other way to put it. We first spotted them after seeing this little kid (Kid Break of the Syrupkids) shooting a video with his older brother (Style Ski) of their dance routine in Union Square to the song, Finna Get Loose by Diddy. That video later went Viral. We don’t know much about these guys because there are so many of them ,but whenever we spot them we make sure we find a good place to sit its definitely about to be SHOWTIME ! TheBBOYREBELS are a collective of dancers who all have a special gift they bring to the table and make sure you stay for seconds. These boys are captivating and its not long before you see them on the MainStage . Trust us. Follow them on IG: _THEBBOYREBELS
OKAY 3 Words. UNDER THE RADAR. Let us paint this picture. Bushwick Brooklyn, Graffiti covered walls, DJ booth against the wall, Christmas lights & a Microphone. This was the scene in a crowded room full of people when this MC was introduced to me. He was the first one to grace the microphone that night and man did he steal the show. “Don’t care if you’re older than me , I doubt you barely cold as me, You cut your own leg off that mean you met your own defeat.” This kid is a lyricist and he goes by the name of TR3. You may not know him now but you will. He is currently working on a project and we’re sure it will be his first step BIG into the music world of NYC. Check out his soundcloud, https://soundcloud.com/john-

He has shared the stage with Travis $cott numerous times, brushed shoulders with Lenny Kravitz, and just this past weekend he was backstage at AFROPUNK 2017. In addition , Levar is one of the kindest people you’ll ever meet. We’ve had the honor to meet him once and the guy was on his way down south on a BIKE in hopes to find himself. He is no different from you and I. Only difference is Levar knows his impact to the community and is not afraid to let his HATERS know it. “ To my haters, I will successful in life, and you can hold my sack from the back”
