Feeling a bit camera shy


Tangled Thoughts have been together as a band since 2000. Cas and De met in Seattle back in 2000, where they both attended high school. The two were friends, and after competing in various competitions and freestyle battles, the boys earned the title as “The Top MC’s” in the school.

After graduation, Cas returned to his hometown of Philadelphia for vacation. While discussing music projects in a local music store on South street, Cas met Life who had just moved from Seattle. Life was a producer and they exchanged contact information.

Two weeks later, again Cas was on South street in a cypher when a friend introduced him to producer/MC Tekneek (Tek). The two quickly vibed and immediately began creating tracks.

Within the next month, Cas collaborated with Tek and Life. Ironically, Tek and Life discovered that they lived right across the street from each other, and that they even used the same type of equiptment to produce beats. The two had never met until then.That summer Cas, Life, and Tek made four songs that Cas brought back to Seattle.

Once De heard the tracks it was a wrap, the boys were anxious to begin their career. They were so motivated in fact, that after only two semesters of college, they packed their belongings and decided to move to Philly. Cas and De took a three and a half day ride on a Greyhound bus all in pursuit of their dreams.

Once they arrived they met with Tek and Life and began calling themselves “Tangled Thoughts.” The first two years were rough. The squad went through different studios, sounds, management, and equiptment,etc. The group continued to stay focus despite their struggles and they finally found there nitch in 2003 when they recoreded the song “Modern Day Rock.” The track contained live guitar mixed with traditional Hip-Hop drums, and was blessed with creative lyrics. After recording “Modern Day Rock,” the guys teamed up with Gab, who played guitar and DJ No Phrills who was well known around the streets of Philadelphia. The new additions to the group gave Tangled Thoughts a cutting edge and allowed them to appeal to a diverse audience.

Shortly after, the group began working with a booking agency called, “Shore Bets.” Through the agency, the group was able to earn spots performing at the New Jersey Shore, the Theater of the Living Arts (TLA), and at Abilene bar on South Street, where they have been performing for the last two years.

In the past year and a half the squad has shared the stage with artists such as Big Daddy Kane,Raekwon, Dead Prez, Ja Rule, Common, Method Man, M.O.P.,Dialated Peoples, LL Cool J.,The Roots, The Youngbloodz, Vanilla Ice, The Black eyed Peas, Blackalicious, and DJ Jazzy Jeff.

Today Tangled Thoughts is doing their best to broaden their fan base and are working to secure a record deal. Their goal is to make music that touches people from all walks of life, and at the same time restore the true essence of hip-hop.
