Under the leadership of mastermind Pi’erre Bourne, SossHouse has grown into one of hip-hop’s most exciting young labels. Today, three of the label’s hottest talents, Chavo, Sharc, and Jelly, announce they will perform on “The Hardest Out Tour” this May. A blistering 4-date showcase of SossHouse’s singular style, “The Hardest Out Tour” kicks off in Houston on May 24th, continues in New York (May 25th) and Atlanta (May 27th) before finishing up in Los Angeles on May 28th. Tickets for “The Hardest Out Tour” are available on DATE at MoveForwardMusic.com
Chavo’s rap ambitions date back to his early childhood, when he landed a deal with Interscope at the age of nine under the name Ray Ray, as part of a trio with his cousin James and Baby Bun, Big Pun’s son. Around 2014, Chavo was introduced to Pi’erre through his cousin, YSL artist Strick, planting the seeds for his recruitment as one of the first SossHouse signees years later. Chavo earned internet attention when he released his hit “Michigan” in 2021, generating over 31k TikTok creations, racking up millions of streams across platforms, and inspiring a remix featuring Babyface Ray. Later that year, Chavo teamed with Pi’erre Bourne for his acclaimed mixtape, Chavo’s World 2. Most recently, Chavo teamed with A$AP Ant and GT for “Wasabi,” and shined on his own with the romantic “Call On Me” video.
A friend of Pi’erre Bourne’s from their native South Carolina, Sharc made an impact with his 2021 full-length debut, 47 Meters Down, entirely produced by Pi’erre. “Drunk N Nasty,” a collaboration between Sharc and Pi’erre Bourne from the latter’s 2021 album The Life of Pi’erre 5, recently earned a GOLD certification from the RIAA. In 2023, Sharc shared the fiery single “1 Of 1” and recruited Pi’erre and Frazier Trill for “Poland (Remix),” a version of Lil Yachty’s viral hit with a video filmed in the titular country.
Another South Carolinian, Jelly made waves last year with his album The Wolf of Peachtree 2, entirely produced by Pi’erre. The Wolf of Peachtree 2 refines Jelly’s cinematic style over Pi’erre’s genre-bending instrumentals and jaw-dropping transitions. The followup to 2020’s The Wolf of Peachtree sees Jelly delivering his most combative cadences yet on unrelenting cuts like “Motion” and the Juicy J-assisted single, “Bubble Gum,” which sees the South Carolina native channeling the immutable flows of Memphis’ underground with stunning efficacy.
Stay tuned for much more from Chavo, Sharc, Jelly, and the rest of SossHouse as they prepare to take over in 2023.
