"Almost Famous: E.T. — Brothers From Another Planet"

You are about to embark on a journey through the minds of two eclectic MCs who would rather live as unknown lyrical enigmas than sell out their own culture. Tislam Allah and Ezechiel Quiroz are using their movement as the group E.T. to embark on a journey to bring a refreshing sound not only to hip-hop, but to music in general. The Baltimore-born Tislam the great and the New York-bred E.Q. have been staples in the local hip-hop scene for some time now, and their combined forces will only strengthen their musical reach. - The B

"E.T. invades Midtown"

The Midtown Tavern's popular Mid Tempo Thursday series continues with Baltimore underground rappers EQ and Tislam the Great who together form the group E.T.
Artists Over Industry DJ Big Gard will spin "a mix of classic 90's and current indie hip-hop" beginning at 9:00 p.m. E.T. is scheduled to begin at 10:00 p.m.

E.T. "come from a far to expand your ears". Their sound -- reminiscent of early 90's independent hip hop -- makes a perfect match for the laid back beats and rhymes atmosphere.

"ET and Al Great: Sonar; Baltimore, MD May 16, 2009"

ET opened the show, followed by one song by Al Great. While it was great to see both of these bands again, I’m getting real tired of coming out to tape rap shows where the acts play 12 minutes and leave thinking they gave the audience everything they had. I takes me longer than 12 minutes to take a crap and I’d think bands don’t really find their groove until ten minutes into a set.

Still, ET (actually, more the band they come from, Unison Collective) has been among my fave Bmore rap acts for several years and Al Great totally killed it when I saw him first last year, so any opportunity to check out these acts, regardless of how long they play, is a welcome treat for me.

E.T. - Landed(Preivew To The Album INVASION) 01/09



They come from a far to expand your ears. And who are they? E.T. is E.Q. and Tislam. Do to time and time again performing together and having like interest in music the two became the group E.T. The name is more than just the first letters of their names. They feel like aliens in the scene of HipHop. They stand out with their unique style of expression lyrically but their talent expands beyond just their lyrics.

Due to the fact that so many artists follow a set structure of style they fell like they’re from another planet in the scene of HipHop. E.T. is boundless in their topics and vocabulary while still keeping the original BOOM BAP sound they love. They are unlike most others who claim to be of the same art and fashion.

E.T. brings a consistent sound tailored to the greats that they grew up on. You get innovative expression of experiences that they have witness in their travels together and on their own. And they also provide thought provoking images of real life ideas of their own. E.T. says “Its like no matter how much we go threw when we finally get settled and write we blink and the song is done. And it’s never just some thrown together garbage. We create quality music that needs to be heard.”

Even though this group is still fresh they have open for many well-known underground artists. Such as Stones Throw Records(Madlib, Peanut Butter Wolf, Oh No, Roc ‘C’, MED, Guilty Simpson, J Rocc, Percee P), Karieem Riggins, J-Live, Black Milk, Little Brother, Del The Funky Homosapien, Devin The Dude, Vast Aire, Phat Kat, Jean Grae, Diverse, Mr. Lif, Akrobatic, Q-Unique, Royce Da 5’9”, Slum Village, and One Be Lo. E.T. also has had the pleasure of opening for internationally known HipHop group De La Soul & one of the father’s of HipHop KRS-ONE.

This group also performed at the First Baltimore Music Conference 2005 and 2006. But they are not limited to just the city of Baltimore. This group performed at Styles In Progress 2005 in Toronto, Canada. Also E.T. has blessed stages of surrounding cities and states. E.T. doesn’t just do it for money and fame neither. They have done the Community Action Festival 2005 and other fundraising events for The Village Learning Place.

E.T. is finishing the mastering of the album called “INVASION”. Each also has a solo album in the works and a sequel to add to the movement.

E.T. has landed and the invasion has already begun.
