BandHip Hop

For any structure, the foundation upon which it is built is of the upmost importance. Prime Element recently released their debut LP Set In Stone, but by no means is this their base, it is merely one of the many building blocks the group has set upon their solid foundation of DJ Cysko Rokwel, Producer/Engineer Es Nine and MC A.V.I.U.S


The group was formerly known as 3 The Hardway(formed in 2007). Changed the name to Prime Element in 2010 when signed to Kamikazi Airlines Records, due to avoiding future legal issues over the name. We have toured w/ Swollen Members, Dilated Peoples, People Under the Stairs, Souls Of Mischief, Sweatshop Union, Saigon, and many more. Our DJ, Cysko Rokwel, is 4 Time US DMC Finalist, 2 Time US DMC Runner Up, 2010 East Coast DMC Champion, and 2 Time Colorado DMC Champion. Our Producer, Es Nine, has produced for KRS-ONE, Masta Ace, Edo G, Dilated Peoples, and more.
We have put out one full length LP, "Set In Stone" released on Kamikazi Airlines Records( and our MC, Avius, put out his EP "For Better or Worse" last year, which featured, DJ Babu, Fashawn, Evidence, and more.
