Beginning November 1, Vevo’s DSCVR ATW will showcase engaging, high-quality live performance video content from the class of 2022, with two unique performances from each artist, shot exclusively for Vevo.

With over 500 submissions, Vevo’s DSCVR ATW program is one of the most highly anticipated and competitive lists to appear on, as the artists and bands that make it receive critical exposure and promotion that help propel their careers. ATW artists and bands will be marketed and featured in Vevo’s expert music video programming via playlists and editorial features across Vevo’s network, including YouTube and connected TV platforms, such as Pluto TV, Samsung TV Plus, and Apple TV. 

Vevo has a long history of supporting and introducing emerging artists to new global audiences and its DSCVR ATW champions emerging artists through live performance content.

“EST Gee is one of the exciting new rap stars out right now. He is a street rapper but still unique in his own way. His flow and lyrics are unapologetically truthful and his stories of grit and struggle pull it all together, which is why we're happy to have him as one of our Artists to Watch 2022.” - Mika Sunga Manager, Music Programming


EST GEE:
Focusing on the realist side of Southern rap, EST Gee authentically documents day-to-day life in Louisville, Kentucky, incorporating trap and other contemporary variants of the genre. Originally planning to attend Indiana State University - the first in his family to attend college - on a full football scholarship, Gee’s studies were cut short when he was sent to prison. After his release, he began making music, crafting a moniker by joining the acronym EST -- Everybody Shine Together -- with Gee, a reference to his first name, George. His relaxed but relentless lyrical style drew attention from major labels and hard-hitting contemporaries. Since his introduction to the scene in 2017, EST Gee has collaborated with the likes of Future, Jack Harlow, Lil Baby, Young Thug and more.
