Forged out of the fading underground hip hop movement, The ContraVerse is a project rooted in the independent era. These wordsmiths employ a focus on rhyme-schemes and lyrical content while drawing influences from golden age pioneers such as, A Tribe Called Quest, The Pharcyde and The Roots. While the group consists of Obeah & Kontent on the mics, the songs are triggered and mixed by the hands of multi-instrumentalist, Kid A.

The ContraVerse full length debut, 'Inoculate' will be released through Substance Theory Recordings in Julyf and features guest appearances from Public Enemy's own, DJ Lord, as well as Gift of Gab, voice of Bay Area hip hop legends Blackalicious. Production duties on 'Inoculate' were split between in-house cuts from Kid A, a Berlin based crate-digger named Batsauce and Atlanta's beat battle king, The Conspiracy.

On the verge of their first official release, the crew is already moving on act two. The mutual apocalyptic visions of a land gone mad led to a collaborative art endeavor that includes a collection of graphic shorts coinciding with the songs of ContraVerse's second album, 'Relic'. The Conspiracy returns to provide an entire album of cinematic soundscapes allowing Obeah & Kontent to elaborate on different scenarios of a world torn into cannibalistic ruins. Artistic supplements are provided by Atlanta mixed-medium artist, Diving2Lie; creating a visual compliment to the story lines of the record.

With deep imagination and signature intensity, the music from ContraVerse is an honest and genuine exploration into the possibilities of song and story. Somewhere, between an affinity for creativity in hip hop and a relentless hunger for expression, exists a balance of consciousness and execution referred to as The ContraVerse.
