Mickey Avalon
Mickey Avalon
With a childhood rough enough to guarantee him rock star success, by the time he was out of his teenage years -- at least according to the few details he's given -- Mickey Avalon had sold pot (with his mother), been addicted to heroin and dope, worked as a graffiti artist in L.A., converted to Orthodox Judaism (his parents were both non-practicing Jews, and his paternal grandparents were survivors of Auschwitz), got married and had a daughter, prostituted himself for drug money, watched his father die, and found his sister's dead body. All of this gave ample material for his rhymes, which he started writing after his pal, the former MTV VJ Simon Rex, encouraged him to compose his own songs. Avalon, Rex (who rapped under the name Dirt Nasty), and Armen Melik (aka Andre Legacy) began recording and releasing their own material as the Dyslexic Speedreaders, an irreverent group that gave a satirical and often lascivious look into the L.A. club and drug culture.

Avalon's stage presence, which mixed a kind of hyper- and often ambiguous sexuality akin to the trashy glam rockers of the '70s, gained the attention of DJ and aspiring manager Kev-E-Kev, who was soon helping Avalon hawk his self-titled CD -- wrapped in a newspaper advertising adult services -- on the streets. His music, in particular the song "Jane Fonda," thanks to its appearance in the HBO series Entourage as well its availability on his MySpace site, started gaining an audience, and in 2006 his album was reissued as the first release from MySpace Records in joint collaboration with Interscope.

Simon Rex was first introduced to television audiences as an MTV VJ. Soon after, Simon hit fame and popularity delving into acting on shows such as Felicity, Jack and Jill, and What I Like About You. Rex also made guest appearances on Baywatch, Everwood, and Summerland and starred in the Lifetime Series, Monarch Cove. He has also acted in feature films including Scary Movie 3, Karate Dog, Superhero Movie, Scary Movie 4 Hotel California, King Of The Avenue, and Scary Movie 5.

As his alter ego “Dirty Nasty,” actor, musician, producer, and comedian, Simon Rex has developed a die-hard and rabid fan-base across the world since the release of his debut rap-comedy albums 2007 release. Dirt’s second album (2010’s “Nasty As I Wanna Be”) debuted and stayed at the top of Billboard’s comedy charts for weeks and featured guests such as Ke$ha, LMFAO and others.

His music and persona have excitedly received a cult following which are not only dominant on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Vine and iTunes; but at his sold out shows and concerts across the globe. Most recently, Simon (or Dirt Nasty) teamed up with super-producer Diplo, and his
friends Andy Milonakis and Riff Raff to form the group “Three Loco.” November of 2012 saw the release of an 8-song album on Diplo’s own Mad Decent record label which garnished them critical acclaim from the likes of MTV, Pitchfork, Vice Magazine and Perez Hilton just to name a few.

August 20, 2013 marks the release of Simon’s third album as Dirt Nasty entitled “Palatial.”
Whyte Noyze
Whyte Noyze
Hang around Dallas' music scene long enough and you'll soon be familiar with the regular players. Lately though, a formally clad, masked rap duo by the name of Whyte Noyze has been popping up just about everywhere. And they're not just showing up — they've managed to join forces with some of DFW's biggest creative heavy-hitters for their projects. So, just who are these guys? And what's up with those masks?

As the Whyte Noyze guys put it, both members grew up in very stereotypical, suburban households; Multi/ID in Carrollton and Melvin Gulley in Euless. Their parents weren't very accepting of their love for hip-hop. Multi/ID reminisces about his love for Cypress Hill's Black Sunday — and also its tragic end in his childhood home. “I had very evangelical parents — they found that album and broke it,” he says. Adds Gulley, “I think the album I got caught with was N.W.A. You know, growing up in a white household, they loved that.”
Tyler Sloan

Chasing curiosity, chasing passion, chasing the raddest life. That is what has lead to the creation of Tyler Sloan's hip hop career.

Sloan grew up in North Texas exposed to diverse music genres & diverse walks of life while growing up in a tattoo parlor on the border of Oklahoma & Texas.

That exposure gave him an appreciation for everyone's definition of success - which is what created his Realize All Dreams (RAD) mantra.

At a Tyler Sloan show, you're sure to hear heavy beats, quick witted lyrics & a hyped tempo that will sure to leave you feeling inspired - ready to take on your own passions.

He's taken that performance across Texas & performed to sold out shows at Trees, Bomb Factory, Three Links. "Nobody brings a more hyped audience than Tyler Sloan." He's also opened for acts like Juicy J, Rittz, Shwazey, DMX, Bone Thugs, Too Short & E-40.

His hustle & talent has awarded him nods from media outlets like Central Track - calling him one of the lauded members of the Dallas Hip Hop Scene.

His first Ep "Dreams are Drugs" has made waves in the North Texas Scene & is available on iTunes, Spotify and YouTube. His single off the Ep, "The Raddest" secured organic air play on Hot 107.3 FM.

He has big plans for his next project XLIX and we should be seeing singles off this project in early months of 2018 with a release date of 4-9-18.
