Jack Karowak


As a young kid Jack Karowak would always write music, by the age of 10, he really started to fill up his notebook and started to think of rap names. By the time he was 14, he started to record. He mentioned “I was really inspired by people like Biggie, Nas, Mos def, and Ye. I was huge on the New York boom bap sound and the cinematic soundscape quality that ye provided with projects like graduation. Also I was obsessed with the movie School of rock. Seeing a bunch of kids tear shit up like that had me like “fuck I wanna do that”. I used to have dreams about showing up to school the next day and it was all about rap.” 
Jack has been able to release songs such as “Home” and “All My Life,” which combine for over 150,000 streams on SoundCloud. This has led Jack to receive some label offers and be able to sit in meetings with some of the people who helped push the sounds of his childhood. He also mentions “what I’d consider to be my biggest opportunities are the collaborations with people who see the potential in me and what I want to do. Those are the moments that allow me to grow into the artist I want to be and manifest all the work that I’ve dreamt about creating.”
When it comes to Jack’s music he knows that it is honest and he always pays extreme attention to detail. He said the purpose of his music is “to heal and bring you to a state of being that is just enjoyable. I wanna create timeless music and moments for people to live in.” In the near future, Jack plans on releasing a lot of new music. He has dropped two projects recently as he says “I kinda stayed in album mode.” For now, he plans on dropping more often and consistently, with some new collabs. He also said “TMOTMU Merch and the first video off the project are on the way.”
Throughout his career, Jack has been able to surround himself with people who have supported him through his entire journey. He said “My boy Zacc has been with me every step of the way. Ever since freshman year of high school, any creative idea I have I run by him cause I know his input is only gonna move me forward as an artist. I also have endless love and appreciation for my engineer Brad Feeney and my Producer David Walker. They’ve both given me all the time and patience in the world in helping me bring my ideas to life. Without those 3 homies, I wouldn’t be who I am today.”

Wavy Ry

  Starting to make music at the age of fifteen, Wavy Ry considers himself as more than a rapper. He is an artist. Wavy Ry describes music as “an art, not a trend.” At the beginning of this year, Wavy Ry was able to release a track called “Replace You” which featured Chief Keef’s Cousin Matti Baybee. Wavy Ry had the opportunity to take a trip and stay in LA for a while to get in the studio and network. While talking about the trip, he mentioned “ I came across Paramount studios and locked in a session. Paramount has had so many great musicians that have recorded there. literally some of the people I grew up listening to have recorded their best tracks in Paramount Studios. So being there and walking through that type of Atmosphere, seeing all the plaques on the Walls from Ice Cube and Lil Wayne to Guns N roses, Linkin Park, Flo-Rida, so any of them throwback 2000 vibes were made there it was just dope to be there and actually record a song in the same booth as Icons.” He was

Fasscoupe

Representing Massachusetts to the best of its ability is something Fasscoupe takes very seriously, and that is something he has done very well. From opening to Lil Uzi Vert at back to back sold-out dates at the House of Blues to working with the likes of Lil Baby and Rich the Kid, Fasscoupe has been able to bring Massachusetts’ underground rap to the spotlight.  Fasscoupe began to make music in 2014 and was inspired by his older brother to do so. He mentioned “My older brother used to play CD’s around the house, he would play Dipset, G-Unit, and more. That is how I started to fall in love with hip-hop.”  Something Fasscoupe has credited to his success thus far is his experience in the music industry. He continued with “I am able to give something that really has no expiration date on it. To leave a legacy for people to follow or admire.” These experiences have been able to come from some of the biggest names in music, especially from when he worked on his track “Pray For” whic
