Gyyps is a rapper, producer and songwriter from the Los Angeles area. In 2015, Gyyps took his career into his own hands and released both his debut Canoga Park EP and Darryl Mixtape, amassing over 3 million total Soundlcloud listens in only 9 months.

While studying drums at the USC Thornton School of Music, he co-founded 2273 Records in his freshman dorm room with collaborators Felly and Jake Standley. A serious drummer since the age of 8, Gyyps took his first step toward rapping by songwriting and producing for his friends. The dorm room and surrounding artists provided the perfect environment to hone these skills.

The 20 year-old continues to gain traction with fans through performances across the country in this brief time period. Still a full-time student, his quick ascension and diverse musical background prove Gyyps is an artist with a bright future.
Hailing from New York City, Yonas is one of hip-hop’s most-hyped emerging artists. Known for his incredibly unique style, the 28 year old makes it known that he is unlike anyone else in the game. Fusing thought provoking content and infectious melodies, with crossover music production, Yonas has begun changing the face of music. In just the past three years, Yonas has independently sold 100,000+ songs, 15,000+ albums, and has accumulated over 70 Million streams digitally.

His albums have consistently reached Top 5 on the iTunes Hip Hop Charts, Top 25 on the overall iTunes Albums Charts, and Top 50 on the Billboard Hip-Hop charts.

The buzz generated from Yonas’s movement has also captured the attention of mainstream culture. His song 'Fall Back' was featured in the major motion picture The Place Beyond The Pines, leading to similar song placements in major campaigns with Warrior Sports, Pepsi, and Fuse TV.
