Ab-Soul hails from Carson, California. He signed to Top Dawg Entertainment in 2007, forming the Hip Hop group Black Hippy soon after with fellow West Coast rappers Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, and Schoolboy Q. His family owned a record store when he was growing up, so he got into music early. He penned his first verse and the age of 12 and has been rapping ever since. With 3 successful albums under his belt, he has honed his craft over the years to develop a signature style that features captivating, introspective lyrics and a stage presence that always commands attention.
Mayer Hawthorne has come a long way since his 2008 debut, releasing 3 full length albums, receiving a Grammy nomination, having his songs featured in movies and TV shows, and touring the world while performing with famous acts like Bruno Mars, Foster the People, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, and the late Amy Winehouse. A man of many talents, he plays a variety of instruments, is a fantastic singer, DJs, raps under the name Haircut, and also produces music.
The Boom Booms
The Boom Booms are playing some of the tightest, sexiest soul coming out of Vancouver right now. Known for their charismatic and high energy live performances, The Boom Booms are poised to have a breakout year touring their new album Love Is Overdue, produced by two-time Grammy winning producer Chin Injeti (Eminem, Pink, Aloe Blacc). The Boom Booms can also be thanked for the festival itself, which is an evolution of the block parties that the band started throwing in 2009.
Proceeds from East Van Summer Jam go to a handful of charities that do amazing work worldwide, including the Bavubuka Foundation, Fresh Roots, and Up With Hope.
