Biography

Kooley High is comprised of five former N.C. State University students, who met on the campus bricks by way of hip hop. What started out as a student-run hip hop organization, known as H2O, soon turned into a fresh factory of beats, rhymes, and life.

The North Carolina group is made up of two emcees, Charlie Smarts, Tab-One, two producers, Foolery and The Sinopsis, and a deejay, DJ Ill Digitz.

"Kooley High combines traditional hip-hop and R&B with a modern freestyle that traverses effortlessly between not only genres, but also generations. The result is a three-dimensional concoction that envelops listeners in a sound that is as smooth as The Fugees and Common, as passionate as Mary J. Blige and as intelligent as Hieroglyphics." -URB Magazine

This eclectic group of emcees, producers, and deejay have exploded out of the Raleigh underground scene with their release, "The Summer Sessions EP". In which, they recruited Grammy Award-winning producer, 9th Wonder, for collaborations on tracks like "There You Go" and "Water".

Kooley's next album is slated for Summer 2017 and will be executive produced by 9th Wonder. This will be the project that takes their career to heights unknown for the group.
