Anthonius Monk

(Best Hip-Hop Album of 2017 - New Mexico Music Awards)

This 24 year old emcee has been rapping and writing songs for over 8 years. “I've been making hip-hop instrumentals for 3-4 years with a catalog of over 100 beats and currently have 2 albums and an upcoming EP. Hip-Hop music is my life and i'm constantly producing, recording, and writing daily.” He recently joined the Outstanding Citizens Collective as one of the crews fastest growing artists. He has completed 3 tours in 2018, most recently opening for Landon Wordswell & the legendary Skyzoo along side the OCC.

SymmaTree is a New Orleans native currently residing and making music out of San Marcos, Texas. He is the head of the hip hop collective, Grid Squid Entertainment, and he is also one of the frontmen for the live hip hop and soul band, StereoFiend. SymmaTree is known for his energetic and honest live performances and his use of myth and legend to incorporate fantastic elements into his everyday tales of life, loss, and man’s never-ending search for meaning. His style is best described as Neo-Boom Bap, a blend of 90’s style lyricism and the ever-evolving production and storytelling styles seen in rap music after the turn of the century.

DJ Shatter, aka Pablo Paz, has been DJing since 2008 when he got his first gig as a radio personality in Honolulu, Hawaii.While continuing working in radio upon relocating back to his hometown of Santa Fe, he has since crafted his DJ skills.Most recently, he has performed in conjunction with local trio Sublmnl Rnsons and has focused on the bar and club circuit, becoming a resident at the Shadeh Nightclub.DJ Shatter is dedicated to becoming one of the foremost hip-hop DJs in the Southwest region.

The Beatkeepers are Santa Fe-based producers of eccentric hiphop with an emphasis on sharp lyrics and off-brand humor. Incyte and Welshy combine elements of boom-bap with a dose of cynicism and crass social observation to ensure they aren’t considered too dang serious, all the while seriously loving what they do.

The Outstanding Citizens are a mainstay in New Mexico’s hip-hop scene. Founded in 2008 by Fluid, Benzo and Wolfman Jack, they were later joined by O.G. Willikers and Anthonius Monk. With DJ Shatter or DJ Cap on the turntables, the OC has developed into a formidable live force. In 2017 the group expanded into the Outstanding Citizens Collective and now encompasses visual artists, DJ's, producers, dancers and emcees.
