The American Pouya, a major figure and precursor of a new underground hip-hop scene made in Miami, also confirms his participation, as does the neo-soul Californian prodigy SiR, a member of the Top Dawg Entertainment crew, one of the most respected labels in the industry, who is sure to captivate fans of the genre.
