Pandora Discovery Den 2015: Day 2

Thursday, March 19th at the Discovery Den Antonique Smith brings the smoky, gritty side of Broadway. She’s famous for her portrayal of Faith Evans in “Notorious.” Sample a satiating slice of her edgy, up-tempo, soul pleaser “Hold Up, Wait a minute,” and you’ll be hooked!

Sam Dew brings you a taste of Chicago via Roc Nation, with his soulful singer/songwriter skills that landed him a couple of kitchen-side features with Wale & Prefuse 73.

Raury is the soup de jour in Atlanta, adding his eclectic flavors of folk, funk, soul and hip-hop to many a meal with SBTRKT, Gucci Mane and Joey Bada$$.

SZA slides into some slinky jazz pajamas and serves up dessert; her blend of sweet, sultry R&B, trap beats and slomo soul. 

BJ The Chicago Kid has a voice as sweet as Pineapple Now-Laters, landing him a deal with Motown and studio collations with Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar and Kanye.

Rich Homie Quan will sing his ATL brand of leaned-out rap while you’re cooking in the kitchen. Just throw your elbows if you need some chicken and a biscuit.

Odd Future MC Earl Sweatshirt raps his way from LA to Samoa and back, returning “Home” just in tome for supper with the OFWGKTA crew.

When the after party moves from the strip club to the waffle house, Migos can be found laying their syrupy triplet flow over trapped-out 808 beats.

Wycleff Jean’s roots from Haiti to Jersey are bound to keep the spot spicy like Jamaican jerk chicken tented in foil. This crooner could rap his way back to The Fugees with rice, peas, guitars and beats.
