Haystak

Your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper. 25 years in the rap game. My catalog speaks for itself.

When he broke into the Southern rap scene in the late ’90s, Tennessee rapper Haystak combined his big persona with self-reflective sincerity. Unlike many of his Southern peers, Haystak didn’t embrace materialism and greed; he rapped about his life as so-called “white trash,” exploring the social dimensions of being white and underprivileged in the South. Following the success of contemporaries Eminem and Bubba Sparxxx, Haystak found it easier to earn respect in an industry that had long frowned upon white rappers, particularly those from the countryside.

Chris Taylor

Young, exciting solo-artist & singer/songwriter Chris Taylor has made music a part of his life for as long as he can remember. Before he could even talk, he could already hum along with rhythm to the songs playing on the radio as a really young child. Shortly after, at only four years old Chris would already begin to discover his vocal talents and start to sing, and at about ten years old started playing his first instrument, piano. Though immersed in a musical culture literally from day one of his life…he was still searching for the true connection and feeling that had led him to music.
All the inspiration Chris would need to continue was just around the corner. After discovering a passion and natural talent for songwriting at fifteen, young Chris from Toomsboro, Georgia decided to take his music in a different direction and picked up a guitar at sixteen years of age – and he’s never put it down since.
