The son of Sudanese and American parents, Amir Mohamed was born and raised in the United States capital city of Washington DC, spending hot summers in Khartoum learning Arabic and swimming in the Nile. Growing up amidst the sounds of New York hip hop, his father playing Oud, Go-Go, and gospel, Amir took his first steps as an MC producer in the analog basement studio of his legendary neighbor, Garry Shider (Parliament Funkadelic).

Convincing his entrepreneurial father that he too had business acumen, Amir laid the check from his first commercial release on the kitchen table before his 21st birthday and never looked back. Though Oddisee has gone on to perform with The Roots, produce for Jazzy Jeff, Little Brother, & De La Soul, form the critically acclaimed group Diamond District with fellow Washingtonians X.O. and yU, and become a world renown musician.

His work has been featured on the Facebook Series Humans of New York, in countless films, television ads for everything from snowboards to bicycles, and even at Google's product unveiling. In 2017 he preformed at over 110 shows around the globe with his band Good Compny in support of his album «The Iceberg.» He has been featured almost everywhere from Time Magazine and USA Today to Pitchfork and Rolling Stone.

Known in the music industry for his independence, Oddisee consistently debunks the scatterbrained artist myth — doing everything from booking international tours to photography to marketing and promoting himself and even other artists. He has been signed with Mello Music Group since 2008.

Ras Nebyu is an MC born and raised in Uptown Washington, DC, to an African American mother and an Ethiopian father. Exposed to Roots Reggae at very early age, listening to everything from Peter Tosh to Culture. Nebyu’s love for music quickly became an infatuation. Shortly after Nebyu started to write lyrics of his own, the older he grew the more his music reflected his Rastafarian/Pan-Africanist upbringing. With his influences ranging from a wide variety of MCs from Nas to Gucci Mane, Ras Nebyu manages to bridge the gap between socially conscious content and leisure listening without compromising his lyricals. He is the self proclaimed «starting point guard of the Washington Slizzards», a group of young talented individuals who are involved in several creative indevors from music to clothing. With two music videos (Capital of Hate & Washington Slizzards) under his belt, Nebyu is preparing to release his 2nd EP «Babylon’s Most Wanted». Slated to release the day after Christmas, this EP is a collection of songs dealing with life for a young black male in Washington, DC from the perspective of an Uptown Ethiopian Rasta.
