Dirty5Thirty is a four member, organic hip-hop group from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. They are proudly "multi-genred" and borrow liberally from influences in funk, hip-hop and psychadelia. Their "rap-attack meets jams" (Independent Weekly) style has been touted as The Roots meets Soulive. A demonstration of these influences can be seen in, "ITSNOTGONNABELIKEITWASBEFORE", the band's first full length LP (3/2006).
Furthermore, Dirty5Thirty is accomplished, having played over 100 shows at more than 30 venues in two years. They raised over $2000 for the Lineberger Cancer Research Center at UNC-Chapel Hill through the creation, promotion and planning of "Project Elevation," an eight band festival held in April of 2005.
At the moment they are maintaining a busy performing schedule throughout the American Southeast.
