After being sidelined for over a year battling flu complications, Lights managed to release a comprehensive collection of unreleased music titled What Don’t Kill You.

Now residing in Atlanta, Lights La Soul spits his soul over melodies that paint vivid pictures and evoke emotion in the listener. He is a lyricist with a knack for songwriting and the proof is in the music. Visit ThisIsLights.com for more.

Nedlog - (@nedlog)

Nedlog a four-man hip-hop group from Stone Mountain,GA. They're know for 
their combination of engaging/quirky lyrics over extremely diverse self 
made production. After meeting in high school where they would always 
find themselves in heated hip hop debates. The four rappers decided that
the music coming from the hip-hop scene in Atlanta was becoming 
repetitive and almost indistinguishable and that it was time to try to 
bring some refreshing to the game. Starting from nothing the group began
to work to develop their unique lyrical style at the same time as 
learning to curate their skills in music production as well as 
performance in a poorly maintained section 8 apartment in their city. 
Nedlog sounds can only be described as eclectic and organic.
