Ugly God is only 20, but he’s gaining a lot of attention, including that of Diplo, Juice Jam’s headliner, who accidentally interrupted Ugly God’s press conference to try to talk to him. But what’s making Ugly God, born Royce Davison, so popular seems to elude even he.

When it comes to his lyrics, Ugly God says he puts everything out there.

Juice Jam Artist Interview: While taking molecular and cellular biology classes, the R&B artist still finds time to work on his music.

Juice Jam 2017 opener Jeremy Zucker is not only an R&B pop artist and producer, he’s also a Colorado College senior.

While the 21 year old describes his molecular and cellular biology program as extremely academically rigorous, he gets at least two or three hours a day to mess around in his studio basement.

“I’m in like a cancer cell bio class right now,” Zucker said. “(But) I’m not going to cure cancer.”

Review: The "X" hitmaker headlined Phi Beta Sigma's State of Emergency concert alongside Nebu Kiniza.

For the price of $10, I saw 21 Savage. Yet, short and simple is how to describe 21 Savage’s performance in Goldstein Auditorium for Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity’s State of Emergency concert. 21 Savage performed music from his recent collection, and although his music has earned him a huge fan base, his performance falls short. The rising artist seemed like he was there to play a few songs and get off the stage as he barely interacted with his audience, failing to produce the hype the fraternity’s previous concerts brought.

Bandersnatch headliners talk influences, dream collaborations and returning to Upstate New York.

Tribe Society

The NewsHouse: You guys formed out of the band Gentlemen Hall. Is Tribe Society a reimagining of it, or are you focusing on more of a different style?

Brad: This is a big turning point for Gentlemen Hall. We used to have another singer, but he left, and then we moved to New York, and just kind of started over, started fresh. It’s a little different in sound because we’re always exploring and stuff, so it kind of became its own thing with the five of us instead of the six people in Gentlemen Hall.
