Xavier Wulf

Born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1992, Xavier Beardbegan rapping early on, inspired by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. He began working on music at home, sharing it through online networks and finding himself fully immersed in the world of recording and performance by the end of his teens. Originally performing under the name Ethelwulf, Beard was invited to become a member of the Raider Klan, a hip-hop collective that included SpaceGhostPurrp, Muney Junior, Jitt, and many others. In 2012 he released his debut mixtape, The Wolf Gang’s Rodolphe, and quickly produced a score of other mixtapes and collaborations before leaving Raider Klan in early 2013, citing creative differences. Though working under several aliases, Beard chose Xavier Wulfas his main moniker and produced new music at a nonstop clip over the next several years. Collaborations with Bones and Chris Travismaterialized, as did several mixtapes and a more considered full-length release with 2015’s Project X album. Each release sawXavierWulfexpanding on his style, moving from the dark throwback sounds of earlier work into new territories. One of the most important and original underground artists that has paved a way for successful independent music/art careers today.Formerly known as Ethel Wulf from the Raider Klan and 1/4of the legendary collective SESHOLLOWATERBOYZ

Eddy Baker

It’s hard not to love Eddy Baker, a master of juxtaposition, and a trailblazer of underground rap. His husky frame humbles his gravelly voice, his slight lisp humanizes his trap-focused lyrics, his sinful habits grind against his devout Christianity, and his nihilistic lifestyle characterizes his role as the CEO of Healthy Boyz, his immediate rap group with Chilly Sosa, Johnathan Kash and CelesKarter. In the early 2010s, Eddy Baker first appeared as a member of Raider Klan, the underground supergroup that first popularized phonk, a demonic breed of trap inspired by 90sMemphis-rap, Texas horrorcore, and niche internet phenomena. Phonk soon spread across SoundCloud, leaked into the mainstream, and became an intrinsic element of the trap sound we know today. When Raider Klan-which included Denzel Curry, SpaceGhostPurrp, Ruben Slikk,and dozens more-disbanded in the mid-2010s, former members Eddy Baker, Chris Travis, and Xavier Wulf (fka Ethul Wulf) formed SESHOLLOWATERBOYZ with bones and went on to become the most dominant underground rap group of the 2010s. Now, Eddy Baker makes catchy 80s-inspired love songs, Mexiko-Dro-style trap anthems, and G-Funk bops that honor his California roots. From the Pro Club to the Dodger fitted, Eddy radiates a SoCal charisma that cannot be faked. Even so, his music exists cross-regionally, timelessly, and ahead of whatever comes next
