Typically, the "Wake Up" column brings the best in undiscovered hip hop, but The Gallery Network has never been closed to other musical formats. We appreciate great talent and creative originality, no matter what format it may come to us.

Don't sleep on this West Coast rooted new-school throwback group, referred to us by way of Gallery affiliates, The Out Crowd. Stedapol CC Watt, no matter how wacky the name may be, are the most perfect interpretation of a classic sound transposed into a modern display for the new millenium. Serving up a funky 1970's Blaxploitation car-chase feel, occasionally infused with Latin undertones, this small trio with a big sound have definitely got the "it" factor - expect big things from them in the future!

Works from one of the greatest living icons to ever tickle a canvas.


A Chicago based artist, Jesse Greene (aka Dense) is constantly pushing the boundaries of experimental and graff-based visual art styles. Making a name for himself is not an issue for Jesse; aside from sporting a cool hand on the graphics tip, he's also known for his stellar dance chops -

In fact, check out Big Dense's interpretive dance to Britney Spears' "Womanizer" below:

The Facelift is here.

Anacron's all-new venture into the world of "mixtape" and "street albums", this compilation combines the seasoned underground veteran trying his hand at the art of the "feature". Cameos are a commonality in the commercial world of mainstream music, so it's only fitting that Anacron chose to pull together an assortment of some of the biggest commercial hip hop entities, add some classic underground hip hop, a little bit of club flavor, and his own personal stamp.
