Tell us a bit about yourself? Growing up in LongBeach California there was always a mixture of urban art and creativity that was rich and kind of infectuous so we leaned a little more towards the knowledge and music instead of the gang culture. We were more into Bad Brains and Watts Prophets, EarthWind and Fire, Funkadelic, James Brown even a lot of psychedelic stuff like Jimi Hendrix and the DOORS
There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? We have a strong foundation of underground culture and the advancement of our own unique styles and music
What’s your back-story? Back in the 90's there was a very strong and creative movement that started off at the Goodlife Cafe and later moved on to Project Blowed in the Lemert Park area of Los Angeles. At that time we formed Humbal Rebellion and dropped our first tape "ANONYMOUS".. way before the now famous hactivist group ever existed.
What are you working on at the moment? Rightnow I'm working with Alien Connection, Forge One, and a couple more producers on my New Album. I am also working with Mylz Messiah and Radioinactive on a new Humbal Rebellion Album. We also have some new projects like KillerGigaBitz and TheAnnunaki.
