The best kept secret in music



Fans of off-center, lyrics-obsessed hip-hop a la Aesop Rock may dig Gen.Erik, who mines a similar territory of sexed-up, all-intellectualized-with-nowhere-to-go storytelling. - Willamette Week

"Gen.Erik 2"

Gen.Erik sometimes approximates the over-enunciated consonants and anti-dialect delivery of Eminem, but his subject matter is far less... well, violent, postured and, you know, loco. He points out spiritual hypocrisy--both that of others ("Stereotypes") and his own ("Sex, Drugs, Money")--turning around pretty clever phrases and rapping with humor in lieu of preachiness. (Also, it helps that DJ Aero's production is pretty tight.) - Portland Mercury

Feeling a bit camera shy


Animal Farm is constant energy on stage. The four MCs (Kenny Wilson, Gen.Erik, Hanif Wondir, and Fury) feed off each other and the beats laid down by DJ Strategy to produce one of the livest shows in the northwest. The group combines straight lyricism with politics and comedy to provide an extremely entertaining show. Animal Farm hails from Eugene and Portland, Oregon, and is a combination of three of the most celebrated groups in the area, Money Shot, SoundProof, and Cleveland Steamers. All of the members were in hip-hop groups voted amongst the top 3 in a 2005 fan poll in the Eugene Weekly (received #1 status in 06' & 07'). Since the group's inception, Animal Farm has created a quick local buzz and will be touring this fall to promote their upcoming mixtape.
