Schnozy.
It’s a word uniquely uttered by Hip Hop artist Defacto Thezpian that seems ideal when tasked with finding an adjective to describe his music.

There’s a new reality in the North Carolina hip hop scene in 2017. The talent present in the region that’s gone undiscovered is no longer a secret. With the continued success of artists such as J.Cole, Rapsody, Phonte’, names such as King Mez and Drugs Beats working with Dr. Dre, and many other up and coming artists , the entire state has become a hotbed for emerging NC emcees. Now, here comes a new challenger. Defacto Thezpian, one of the next rising stars from Durham, NC.

Voted Best Hip Hop Artist at the 2015 Carolina Music Awards, and long-time stage actor (hence the name), Defacto Thezpian’s lyrical prowess continues to have him mentioned as an elite in the Triangle area. Last year he released the ambitiously triumphant Raheem Royal: An Induction to Greatness. More recently he’s been featured on K97.5FM’s 919 Radio, and notable blogs such as 2DopeBoyz & HipHopDX, as well as festival stages like the 2016 A3C/Swisher Sweets Artist Project Showcase & YouBloomLA. Defacto’s momentum carried over on to the Aff and Friends Tour, making stops in Brooklyn, St. John’s University, Charlotte, Wilmington, and Roanoke VA. One of the best live performers in the area, Defacto has already shared the stage with notable artists Nappy Roots, Well$, Joshua Gunn, Audio Push, Snow Tha Product, Pac Div, Young Dirt, as well as Professor Toon and The Real Laww.

When not focusing on his own Hip-Hop endeavours, Defacto uses his time to teach and positively influence children with his Creative Rap program at Walltown Children’s Theatre. Listen to his music and you’ll hear the true tales of a young male with tales that are similar to his peers, but shared in a manner that forces listeners to hit the playback button again and again.

An artist with hip-hop beginnings established in the war zones of North Carolina battle rap has the ultimate advantage when it comes to knowing how to defeat their competition; Jooselord Magnus is a prime example. Durham was first introduced to Joose as the young battle rapper whose punchlines were so clever, but so vicious it would make you feel bad for his opponent for even attempting to win. While winning various battles, like his recent farewell battle victory against DMT, Jooselord has built his foundation in North Carolina hip-hop, and is ascending now as one the top hip-hop rookies in the Carolina rap game. Successfully hosting his “Old Fashioned Un-American Barn Burner” two-day concert event last winter and being nominated for Carolina Music Awards “Best New Artist” of 2017 are just a few of Jooselord’s achievements since he debuted as a performer just one year ago.
