TopMics artist showcase is a platform for indie artist to exhibit their talents. Their show in Atlanta brought out a few fresh faces and some known ones as well. The event was presented by DJ 3000 of 3000 Ent at Knockouts bar and lounge. The crowd was vibrant as the artist showed love to each other. The special invited guest of the night were DJ 7Thirty and Joe Rugby of Tape Hustlers and previous TopMic winner Golidlox. Salute to the artist of the night, some caught my attention but only a few captured it so I had to shine some light on these artist.
The name is Bob Whyte and I’m from little old Boynton Beach, FL. I have been writing music for as long as I can remember but, I wish I pursued my music career sooner. Some might say I have a trap sound, but it’s hard to put me into a box. I have days where I want to make music for the block and other days where I want to sing like Adele. Some of my influences include: T.I., T-Pain, Future and Birdman. I learned a lot from dealing with multiple personalities but eventually like most greats, I decided it was time to turn into a one man army. I’ve performed from packed clubs as well as in front of nothing but tired bartenders and janitors. The quality of the work speaks for itself and five years from now I’ll be saying I told you so. Be on the lookout for my debut project titled “Whyte Power“. Follow me on social media @bobwhytebrand, Contact me at 561-414-2420. My music is available on SC, Spotify, Apple Music etc. I just want to tell anyone trying to better their lives or who are chasing their dreams to keep doing so no matter what. You will die alone so don’t live with regret, GO FOR IT and DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!! S/O to Keedie’s Corner and Tape Hustlers!!
I’m GrittySound, hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, currently in North Carolina. I have had a love for music since the age of 3 years old, when I first started playing the drums. Later, I began working on my vocals in hopes of becoming a singer one day. Here is some of my music (click the link) to give you some insight to help you understand my style. Meanwhile, growing up I was also practicing other instruments such as violin, and piano, which I often plays in the background of some of my tracks. Striving for greatness and success everyday, I soon hopes to reach the top.

My name is Iczey Kashmere most call me Kash, I am an aspiring singer. I was born in Winfield, AL and I moved to New Orleans around 12. I wrote my first full song at the age of 10. I started writing and it just took off from there. I loved to sing and writing was my passion. I moved to NYC at 18 to pursue a music career and I haven’t looked back since. I have been doing shows this year and I am loving it. I have so many musical influences. I grew up on oldies because my granny raised me. My mother was an 80s baby so my collection is from Al Green to Anita Baker to Beyonce. My first tape was Al Green’s greatest hits. I recently did a show in NYC and I’ll be in Florida next month at the Indie Music Festival. Check out my single “Good Life” and be on the lookout for more!
