wait what fused the debut record of British indie rock group The xx with vocals from The Notorious B.I.G., and created the notorious xx, which quickly garnered critical acclaim from New York Magazine, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, and The Guardian UK, who dubbed it "the best mashup album of 2010" — it received over one million downloads. Since then, he teamed up with Dave Eggers' 826 Valencia and indieshuffle.com to release a new mixtape, this is real life, under a pay-what-you-want model, raising thousands of dollars for 826 Valencia, a youth writing non-profit.

With three albums to tour on, his live performances have taken him all over, from Fashion Week in Toronto, a club show in Kigali, Rwanda, playing at the top club in Bangkok, and performing with artists including Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Taking Back Sunday.

Charlie Kubal, the man behind the wait what project, creates music wherever he can — previously working at Google and traveling often, he'd create tracks in airports, and has since begun business school at Stanford. He finds time between Marketing class and study groups to produce new tracks and play live shows, which have been known to include eccentric costumes, a live drummer going nuts, free stuff, temporary tattoos, and lots and lots of dancing.
Scarub
Scarub
When he wasn't watching Yo MTV Raps or Pump It up, Scarub, like many other L.A. hip-hop heads, grew up listening to the all hip-hop radio station, KDAY. It was during these early years that Scarub first gave himself the name Quaz (The kid who did), and later Mudd Foot, before settling on Scarub as his mc moniker. Scarub first hit the stage during an 8th grade talent show and he hasn't looked back since. As a student at L.A.'s Hamilton High, Scarub hooked up with fellow students Eligh and Murs and the trio formed the 3 Meloncholy Gypsy's or 3MG. Scarub like the rest of 3MG eventually made the move up to the bay area where he hooked up with Mystik Journeymen and was put down with the Living Legends crew.
