MC Lyte is still making the crowds move across the globe after she first appeared on the scene in 1988 with her debut album "Lyte as a Rock." She was the first solo female rapper to score a gold single, to be nominated for a Grammy and to be inducted into VH1’s Hip Hop Honors. Lyte also co-wrote and performed the television theme songs for Fox’s “Dark Angel” and BET’s “Holla.” Now, the legendary lyricist has 9 albums (and an album of greatest hits) to her credit.

R&B girl 702 hit it big with their first album "No Doubt" in 1996 and followed it up with the smash "Where My Girls At?" off the album "702" in 1999. The group released the single "Pootie Tang" for the movie's soundtrack and later dropped the album "Star," with the memorable single "I Still Love You." 702 appeared at the 2017 Soul Train Music Awards and is currently on tour in several '90s-themed concerts, including The RBRM Tour.

D.C. native and Dreamville/Interscope signee Ari Lennox released her highly anticipated EP "PHO." Her style is inspired by Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Whitney Houston. The 25-year-old singer says she wants to be "braver and riskier" in her music. Her new single "Whipped Cream" is currently in rotation on radio stations across the country.
