ABOUT TIME!…Somebody had to say it :)
“Legendary” is far from a hyperbolic claim. Emcees Myka 9, Self Jupiter, Aceyalone, and P.E.A.C.E., along with DJ Kiilu Grand, have made an indelible mark on hip-hop since the independent release of 1991’s To Whom It May Concern, traveling in stream-of-consciousness rhymes, intricate wordplay, powerful battle raps and thoughtful spoken word poetry that incorporated jazz, funk, soul and reggae all under the umbrella of hip-hop. With subsequent releases Innercity Griots, Shockadoom and Temptations (the former instantly earning “classic” status upon its release), the Los Angeles-based group rose from their initial ciphers at the storied Good Life Café and solidified their stronghold as influential leaders in the underground hip-hop movement. “On This Earth” produced by Sapient is the first single from their upcoming album The Promise.
