Tableek
TableekScience in rap: the pyke strikes back'It’s hard to say exactly where and when things have gotten deep for me personally, as I have seen and heard about the prosecution of my Muslim brothers and sisters in the States and worldwide. Now, shit is basically becoming hard on everyone, as they begin to enforce this bullshit police state.'POSTED 09|10|2005
Tableek
TableekTableek Talossa!'I like to challenge where I can go with the music I'm given. My foundation is definitely underground hip-hop. I'm a sincere emcee doing my own thing contributing to the culture and not just being a vulture…people see that and they hit me to do tracks..'POSTED 09|20|2009

Tanya Morgan
Tanya MorganBrooklynati to the fullest'Now you can just open up your iTunes, scan your songs for 20 minutes, pick a few, then click burn. Sorry there's no passion in that.

The Doppelgangaz
The DoppelgangazDiving Dumpsters'The rugged, lonesome living with the dumpster diving and keeping to one’s self is really a metaphor for the DIY mindset we have. Bums scavenge for food and never rely on anyone but themselves. They make the most out of what they have.'POSTED 12|14|2011
The foodchain
The foodchainPreparin Lunch'Seeing us live in comparison to listening to the records is a whole different experience. Three keyboards, a drummer, and four mc's. Until now, you've never seen that before. You've never heard the same sound, or felt this same emotion of music.'POSTED 04|24|2012
