Blueprint
Hailing from Columbus Ohio, hip-hop artist Blueprint has been releasing music since 1999 on his own imprint Weightless Recordings (producing artists Envelope, Illogic, Zero Star, & Greenhouse) as well as Warner Brothers-distributed independent Rhymesayers Entertainment (home of Atmosphere, Brother Ali, MF Doom, and more). After graduating from college with a degree in computer science, he decided to pursue art full-time in 2002 and has been a career artist ever since. Since then Blueprint has released three critically acclaimed Soul Position albums (with producer RJD2), released five solo albums, two production albums, toured the United States over fifteen times, toured Europe four times, and toured Canada six times. He has been on the cover of the Columbus Alive, Ghetto Blaster Magazine, and was voted Next 100 by URB magazine. He has written and self-published three books, The Making of Adventures in Counter-Culture (2012), Word Is Blog Volume One (2013), and What a Night (2015). His hip-hop and self-development podcast, Super Duty Tough Work, garners thousands of listeners every week. Now, Blueprint has completed his first film titled King No Crown - a documentary inspired by his 2015 album of the same name, and is preparing the film for a 2017 release.
Career Crooks
Career Crooks
Career Crooks consists of long time Wrecking Crew collaborators Zilla Rocca, and Small Professor. Steeped in the late 1980’s to early 1990’s Career Crooks coupled street smart blue collar futurism, with a modernist approach, launching them to the level of current luminaries like KA, Roc Marci, and Westside Gunn. "Good Luck With That" is the cross-section of hip hop’s fascination with its early days, while still touching on all of the cultural touchstones of current times.

Before signing with URBNET for this project, Zilla and Small Professor were individually active and engaged within the indie and underground scene, regarded as veterans in their element. Their monumental contributions have garnered them much deserved respect and recognition.

Zilla has released numerous albums on his own imprint, Threedollarpistol Music, and via World Around Records. He has been featured in numerous heavy hitter publications such as Huffington Post, HipHopDX, Okayplayer, LA Weekly, Philly Weekly and Complex. Small Professor has continued to develop to his impressive “Jawn” series catalogue, which collectively spans nearly seven years. He has also worked with Coalmine Records on his 2013 project with Guilty Simpson.

They have recorded, collaborated, and shared the stage with a veritable selection of “who’s who” artists of indie music such as, Mount Kimbie, Shlohmo, Open Mike Eagle, PremRock, Guilty Simpson, Boldy James, AG, DJ Revolution, Blueprint, Von Pea, Elucid, Stik Figa, Mega Ran, Statik Selektah, Roc Marciano, Geechi Suede of Camp Lo, The Kid Daytona, doseone, billy woods, L'Orange, Lushlife, Uncommon NASA, Starkey, Black Sheep, B Dolan, Mega Ran, Nocando, POS, The Dopplegangaz, K Flay, Astronautilus, Armand Hammer and Rob Sonic.
