Warren G
Warren G
One of the originators of the Hip Hop sub genre G Funk, Warren G is most identified by the song Regulators (1994) featuring Nate Dogg. Warren G along with Nate Dogg and Snoop Dogg formed the group 213 as teenagers, and this led to Warren G introducing the group to his step brother Dr. Dre. Snoop Dogg went on to continue working heavily with Dr. Dre, while Warren G, although he did work with Dr. Dre as well, decided to make sure he pursued his career away from his step-brother’s shadow. He did just that with the release of Regulate…G Funk Era (1994). Warren G went on to make a prominent career as not just a rapper, but also a producer. He produced tracks with Dr. Dre and produced for artists such as Snoop Dogg, 2Pac, MC Breed, and more. His most recent release was in 2015, titled Regulate… G Funk Era Pt II which included unreleased work he had done with the late Nate Dogg.

Colston
Colston
CrazyHorse & Colston is a hip hop duo based out of Asheville, North Carolina. As Asheville natives, the two take pride in making music that a wide range of audiences can enjoy. Both MC’s were heavily influenced not only by Hip Hop music, but also by Rock, Blues, Folk, and Bluegrass (among others) and have blended many of these genres together to make their latest album, “Backroads & Bonfires,” which features many talented local musicians such as Don Lewis of “Sons of Ralph” and members of the popular reggae group “Common Foundation.” The two strive to embody the spirit of their Appalachain home while at the same time fighting against a culture of disrespect and superficiality that has become increasingly popular and acceptable in our modern era of music. They believe that this is especially true for hip hop music and seek to reconnect with the roots of this genre and expose audiences to the same raw, creative, and thought-provoking music that they had the benefit of enjoying while growing up. Along with their DJ, DJ Kilby, the group has performed at places such as Asheville Music Hall, The Garage at Biltmore, The Chop Shop in Charlotte, the Burn Neon Music Festival in Old Fort, and the Blue Plum Festival in Johnson City, TN (to name a few). They were recently featured in the Mountain Xpress’ Best of 2012 as the number one Hip Hop group in WNC and had the honor of representing their hometown at the most recent Bele Chere street festival in Asheville, NC. Since the June 2012 release of “Backroads & Bonfires,” the two have been touring, making videos, and working hard in hopes of spreading their music to a wider audience.
