Comprised of rappers Smoove, Tung and JayAre, along with their resident dancer M-Bone (RIP), they are a practical four-man performance machine hailing from the streets of Inglewood. Known as Cali Swag District (CSD), theyve created a great deal of internet buzz and crowded club dance floors with their infectiously hypnotic single, Teach Me How To Dougie. Cali Swag District has captured the mood of the streets with the Dougie and has now created a classic album for hip-hop, being compared to rap groups like The Hot Boyz and Beastie Boys. The body of work presented on their debut album The Kickback is sure to catapult them to the next level. Part of CSDs charm and fire is that the guys are energetic, fun, zany, and truly know how to entertain their fans. CSD is most proud of their high energy stage shows ‘We perform like were members of the audience and channel how we want to see the show, says Smoove. Playing consistently to audiences of screaming girls, their popular song hooks and commands to party has created excitement around the album The Kickback.

(The Truth Is [Special Edition])
The platinum-selling Vancouver quartet builds arena-ready hooks around hard rocking stories of good times, bad times and everything in between. Lowlife is a raucous anthem celebrating simple pleasures. Meanwhile, The Bitch Came Back gives a hilarious send-off to a bad ex with roaring guitars and flourishes of horns. Hurricane stirs up a storm of emotions over an orchestral hum of guitars and massive chorus. Then theres Head Above Water, which delivers an uplifting, contemplative message encased in mid-tempo rhythms. Theory of a Deadman are telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth, like it or not.

WE THE KINGS return with their third album SUNSHINE STATE OF MIND, which is a tribute to their beloved hometown of Bradenton, Florida. Coming off 4 consecutive top 30 CHR HITS and over 3 million tracks sold-including the platinum single Check Yes Juliet - WE THE KINGS have delivered another infectiously catchy album produced by S*A*M and Sluggo (Neon Trees, Mike Posner, Katy Perry, Train). The band is currently shooting an interactive video using the latest incarnation of the cutting-edge technology that recently earned an MTV O Music Award in the Innovative Video category.
