Muve First Artist Travis Porter teamed up with Muve Music to launch an exclusive release of "Plane Ticket" from their debut album, From Day 1. Muve Music will have the exclusive on "Plane Ticket" starting May 29, 2012 through the month of June.

Comprised of three 20-year-old rappers, Harold "Strap" Duncan, Donquez "Quez" Woods and Lakeem "Ali" Mattox, the Atlanta rap trio Travis Parker exudes Deep South swagger. Energizing tracks like their hit single "Bring It Back," and the urban-pop style of "College Girl" are emblematic of their lyrical range and artistic bravado. Travis Porter gained worldwide recognition performing nationally and then touring Japan and Germany, while still unsigned. Their independent track "Go Shorty Go" hit the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart, while their breakout single "Make It Rain" charted on the Billboard Top 100. They also developed an overwhelming online presence with more than 100 million combined views on YouTube, and over 400K Twitter followers and 1.7MM Facebook likes.

Muve First Artist Big K.R.I.T has partnered with Muve Music in June to celebrate the release of his debut studio album, Live From the Underground. Big K.R.I.T gave Muve Music the exclusive on his never heard before remixed track titled, "Me and My Old School Remix." Starting June 5, 2012, Muve Music will have the exclusive on Big K.R.I.T's new track for thirty days.

Big K.R.I.T (King Remembered In Time), native to Meridian, Mississippi, is considered to be one of the most promising artists in his genre and as one of "XXL's 2011 Freshmen Class," is in good company with talented artists like Meek Mill, Cyhi Da Prynce, Lil Twist, Yelawolf, Fred The Godson, Mac Miller, YG, Lil B, Kendrick Lamar & Diggy Simmons. Big K.R.I.T's self-produced mixtape "Return of 4Eva," featuring guests David Banner, Joi, Big Sant, Chamillionaire, Raheem Devaughn, Ludacris, and Bun B, was received with the highest praise from leading hip-hop critics who celebrated his production skills, lyrics and phrasing.

Muve First Artist Waka Flocka Flame teamed up with Muve Music in June to amplify the launch of his new album Triple F Life, which will be released on June 12. As a special tribute to Muve Music fans, Waka Flocka Flame will offer the exclusive first release to "White Remy," a track from Triple F Life, which will issue on Muve Music the same day the album is available in stores.

Already a local phenomenon in Atlanta from his 2007 mixtape Salute Me or Shoot Me Vol. 1 and work with fellow Atlantian Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame burst onto the national scene with his debut album Flockaveli in October of 2010. Led by a string of chart-topping singles including "O Let's Do It" -- which included a remix featuring Rick Ross and Diddy -- and "Hard In Da Paint," it was his #1, multi-platinum single "No Hands" featuring Wale and Roscoe Dash that made the Atlanta native a household name.
