Bio

Skilled lyricists, each with their own succinct delivery, make up Reservoir Dogs.
Named All Day, and Stoop Lo, these natives of South Central Los Angeles
have been a pair of rap bandits since the early 1990’s. The group was (and still is) a
part of a collective of emcees who called themselves the 2-4-7 Posse—a collection
and supergroup of rappers from various neighborhoods around Los Angeles. In the
mid-nineties, 2-4-7 splintered off into several smaller entities; with one of those being
Reservoir Dogs.

Loosely adopting alter egos in the likenesses of their cinematic namesake, Reservoir
Dogs took a colorful but ferocious approach to music. Mr. Green (alter ego of Stoop
Lo), and Mr. Burgandie (All Day) approached their music,
with one mission in mind: to lyrically annihilate all tracks with a vicious combination of
potent lyrics and raw reality. With a solid presence on the local club scene, the Reservoir
buzz had been fermenting, and family ties would eventually lead to them getting a deal
with Flatbroke Records. The Dogs participated on a compilation album entitled "OFTB
presents Return of the West." Unfortunately, legal issues had the album pulled from store
shelves, and eventually, Flatbroke Record became yet another indie label that succumbed
to the pressures of a tumultuous industry climate.

Returning to what they knew best—the streets—a neighborhood tie led to a new
situation, and with the help of DJ Mike T of the group Compton's Most Wanted,
Reservoir Dogs found a new home at I Funk Records. Here, they they released a
critically acclaimed underground album, a release entitled “Uncivilized.” While at I
Funk, they began a relationship with producer Drew K (Rollling Stones, Xzibit), and this
collaboration helped them to formulate their signature sound. However, while enjoying
the regional success of their local hits “This Life We Lead” and “Soo Woo” (the latter
produced by King Tech of the World Famous Wake Up show) the group was dealt yet
another blow. I Funk fell victim to a shake up, and once again The Dogs needed to look
for a new home. The group has continued to do shows, and has also written for other
artists to maintain their relevance. Artists they have worked with included Mack 10,
Knocturnal, Damian Young and Rhythm D, to name a few.

Today, Reservoir Dogs have continuing on the path that they set. The group is
scheduled to release a new remix to their smash “Soo Woo” featuring Mack 10,
as well as an EP of new fan favorites. With their own Reservoir Dogs radio show
(www.indoradioonline.com), they plan to not only bringing new music to their
audiences, but to show their diversity by also bringing stimulating intellectual
commentary on current affairs. “Taking a fresh approach to classic music is how we plan
to add our two-cents to hip-hop,” explains Stoop Lo “It’s not about bringing back the
West coast; it’s about bringing back quality content, concepts and good music.”
