Feeling a bit camera shy


Well it all started in back in 1998, with a band called 30 odd six....nothing was ever recored, never played a show, wrote some songs, but we both got sidetracked by sports, since we were in 7th grade. As time went on Brent got really into punk music and played in a few bands through out high school, but still had a love for hip-hop in his heart. Chris got his first set of turntables when he was 15, and begin scrathing and mixing. Around the year 2003, the year they graduated, they realised that the full ride to college, playing football wasn't coming, and decided to do what we both new we were born to do. ROCK. We rented a space in downtown Houston and started making music. We like to call this the "space funk era". Good times, long nights, and some funk from outer space. We have been perfecting our sound for 5 years now, and are starting to venture out into music world. We started making beats in 2002, but could never find any artist that could put sweet poetry over our space age funk. but we kept on going, never stoping, never folding. Now it is 2008, and we said " fuck it", and starting putting our lryical poison on our tracks. It's somethin new, beyond its time a cross bewteen hip/hop-punk rock-emo, old school, new school, and whatever else you take from it.
