Bio

Plan B's music and stage performance bring energetic and spontaneous flavor, similar to the creation of the duo itself. The two met each other a little over three years ago when they both moved out to Cali from the East Coast. MC Dave Vendley, Solan1, and MC/producer Dale Van Slyke, Select, allied together and quickly did a stint of live shows across Cali and contributed to the local college radio(KDVS) compilation featuring hip hop heavyweights J-Live, Mr. Lif, amongst others, and received praise as the 'top contenders in Davis, [California].'Hitting the Sacramento, California scene harder and faster than any of their predecessors, Plan B exemplified inconceivable potential with a fitting sound and lyrical content for both a commercial and underground following. Plan B's fast rising notoriety secured them a track on the Sacramento Kings compilation album released by Out of Bounds Entertainment Group May 2003.
