The Greater Good (TGG) is composed of etikid (Emcee/Writer), Joey Dats (Emcee/Producer) and DJ Senh, all raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. With a unique style best described as modern hip hop, The Greater Good injects a bold new sound into today's crowded music industry.

Before forming TGG, etikid worked on a solo career, producing individual music releases and headlining performances for acts like Slum Village. He quickly gained attention from producer Joey Dats, who was working with several local artists and co-produced two songs on “Folk Music,” the debut album from California’s Far East Movement. The two young artists quickly discovered a mutual respect for each other’s skills and formed TGG in late 2007.

TGG's influences run the gamut and their inspirations span the musical map, with everything from Kanye West to Radiohead, A Tribe Called Quest to Pink Floyd, and James Brown to Daft Punk. In 2008, they released their first mixtape entitled "Took You Long Enough"; the CD features the single "Celebrity Status," which went on to become a Top 10 finalist in 91.7 The Bounce FM’s “Bounce to the Junos” Competition 2009. TGG has since performed all across western Canada — opening for the likes of Talib Kweli, Fabolous, Nas, Mos Def, Tanya Morgan and Masia One — and was recently hailed as the next up-and-coming group on, an Asian American online lifestyle magazine. Although currently unsigned, TGG finds praise and support from recording artists and listeners across all musical genres.

In the end, TGG's quest is simple: to chase their goals, create positive music and push their sound to innovative new levels. But above all else, The Greater Good is about one thing and one thing alone: making damn good music.
