Biography

ScoJourners (pronounced sko-jurn-ers) have a message. Listen and you will hear that real eyes realize real lies. We are all sojourners in this place called earth and in this space called life. Our inner wealth and our higher consciousness will take us home. ScoJourners may have their geographical home in San FranciSCO but their message reaches the masses. __________________________________________________________________________ ScoJourners members are Skitz the Samurida, Estairy, Curt Sak, An Na, and Max with each member standing in their own creative right as an artist and a visionary. The fact that each member was born and raised in San Francisco brings an uniqueness that is strictly local in flavor and yet appealing to the masses on an national and international level. Their creativity and vibe is born of long-time friends who have been making music together since 2001. Their collaboration brings together an ecclectic flow of rhymes and beats that cross cultural, race, music, and industry barriers. ScoJourners have performed and collaborated with artists such as Zion-I, San Quinn, Equipto, Mike Marshall, Hugh EMC, Andre Nickatina, Bored Stiff, Z-Man, Rappin 4-Tay, DJ Yutaka, Joey Slick (Joint One), Spank Pops, The Genie, Willie Henn, Deuce Eclipse, Sick YG, TXP, and Untied Kings. With respect from their peers and loyalty from their fans, ScoJourners challenges you to raise your consciousness, to question the system, and to seek truths. All the while, their music also tributes their Asian heritage and its marriage to the San Francisco Bay Area hip hop culture. __________________________________________________________________________ ScoJourners already have a legacy locally and internationally.
