About the Creator of Sucka Free Sundayz:
In 2011, I Robert “S.P.” Spruill started my company We Out Here Entertainment. The goal was to produce events for North West artist to showcase their talents. One of the more memorable series that was created was Sucka Free Sundays. As the events grew, so did the pool of performing artist. Which allowed them to, strengthening their fan base, better networking, and most importantly…..UNITY. Sucka Free Sunday had a real organic family type vibe about it. The series ran its course of a year before the venue decided to close its doors. Promoting unity within the hip hop community up and down the I-5, has a positive effect on everyday people. By emphasizing accountability and personal responsibility, artist understand their roles at these events. Which makes for a foundation of solid values, people skills, and business ethic. It’s the end of 2017, now 2018 and it’s back!! Some old faces, some new faces, same agenda. I am the Orator who is here to Nurture and Edify the minds of our Kids, Adults and all Humanity about Love with the Efficiency to be Outspoke. I am One Kahleo
One of the two winners we chose on our first Sucka Free Sundayz is out of Olympia WA; he goes by Tre. Demetrius Jones AKA Tre, formally known as DJones. He is best known for co-founding the musical group #HK3. Tre has an innate ability to connect with his audience, every lyric is articulated with passion, authenticity, and substance. He is influenced by a variety of genres which can be heard within his music. Tre allows his vulnerability, aggression, and own truth to speak through his music.

Our second winner is a duo team David Kish AKA KI$H and DeVon Young AKA Young SaVage. Both were born in the Olympia, Washington. Rapping about trials and tribulations they have experienced throughout life, their lyrics consistently connect with others within our culture. KI$H an 80’s baby was captured by the culture listening to artists such as Twista, Master P, Brotha Lynch Hung and Bone Thugs just to name a few. He became the life of the party in high school practicing verses which earned him the nickname “KI$H Bone”. SaVage grew up with music pumping through his veins. He lived a difficult life with a relentless father that hoped for a son to create music like himself. His father introduced him to several greats, such as 2pac, IceCube, Tech N9ne, Nas, and many more. Unknowingly poetry also pumped through Young SaVages veins, a talent inherit from his mother. Both KI$H and SaVage credit Jason Jones AKA Yak Nasty That Nilla for their early collaborations. They bring great stage performance, courage, vulnerability and love for Hip Hop every time they spit.
Our second week’s winners were off the hook!!! Enasnimi, Rap group from Olympia WA shared their substance, with impeccable timing, and chemistry.
