Dear Silas is a national recording artist with an impeccable delivery and captivating presence. He blends genres of Hip Hop & R&B while combining Jazz and Soul with the help of his trumpet. Previously signed to RCA/Sony, Dear Silas is currently continuing his journey 100% independent, delivering messages of self love and joy through his music.

He recently released his highly anticipated mixtape entitled “It’s Giving Self Love!” on June 24, 2022. It debuted at #8 on the ITunes Hip Hop/Rap charts. The project features his current hit single “I Ain’t Stressin’ Today” which has taken the world by storm with support from Snoop Dogg, Lupita Nyong’o, Tia Mowry and over 10 millions+ fans across social platforms. Dear Silas’ feature in the Sep 22’ issue of Rolling Stone, his highlight in ESPN’s Andscape, and media support from Complex are just a few of the artist’s accolades.

Dear Silas brings a unique sound and style to the Hip Hop realm by conveying nostalgic references while using his unorthodox flow. With overwhelming support from his tribe (#thevillage), BET, and Revolt just to name a few, it’s no denying that Dear Silas is poised for a promising 2023.

About Yadda Man

Yadda, Yadda, Yadda.  Kenyatta “Yadda Man” Thomas (1992) is an American rap artist, songwriter, producer and entrepreneur. Yadda is the man behind the plan, and logo. Born in Columbus, Georgia and raised throughout the Midwest; his musical following far exceeds the normal small-town hip-hop artist.

In addition to rapping Yadda Man has honed his skills as a producer, he self-records and mixes everything he puts out. In 2012 Yadda Man released his first mixtape titled This Mixtape Sucks – and if you’re wondering nothing about this mixtape sucked. As his music developed, so did his fan base.

I’m sure if you mention “The Off Brand” or “Yadda Man” in places such as Rapid City, South Dakota you’ll find that his support is unmatched. In 2013, he went on to release Channel 32 followed by Until the EP and Until the EP II. Each project was laced with dope music. In 2018, Yadda Man was offered a chance of a lifetime and went on a US tour with Afro Man. Later that year, Yadda Man teamed with Nikki the Poet and began laying the groundwork for the recently released. She Go, He Go.

Yadda has opened for several very noteworthy artists to include: Stalley, Waka Flocka, Dizzy Wright, Hopsin, Jarren Benton, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony & Montana 300. His musical abilities have received co-signs by Slim Jimmy and Kato the Producer. When you listen to his music, you’ll find that his message is a lot deeper than his rhymes. His metaphors and lyrical abilities will leave you mesmerized.
