"The Triggermen @ Metropolis Apartments"

A trio of “degenerate party-rappers,” raged home-town with an energetic set at some oddity of an apartment complex out East called The Metropolis. Place yourself in the back lot basketball court of a multi faceted, jungle muraled, paint splashed community pool party, two MCs and one DJ mixing a set of jazz, hip-hop and punk with a bit of paraphrasing and a catchy dash of school-yard slam:

"Breakin' these bitches down to isotopes."

At one crowd joining moment, DJ Yosamite runs wild with a sign while Hysteria 51 – fresh prince who’s met his dark side – energetically emotes an ode to the stoner scrub pay-check-to-pay-check low light lifestyle with “Cashed Out:”

"I'm cashed out, not a dollar to my name, held hostage by a buzz and some hunger pains."

Sampling bits of “Carry On” (Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young) with turntable tips and scratches, a saxaphone silhouetted in the background, the tune blends classical violins and a circus concerta, just to top it off with a doo-wop acapella ending. A beautiful soprano emerges from Jennesy, who’s more commonly loud with her sassy lash outs and party girl quips.

The energy was on. Jumping, pacing, accidental wrapping of feet to chord. Yosamite once again joins the floor from behind the tables during “Double Drink Fister” to clumsily prop himself on the porch fence and spit his ten cents:

"The dude that no one knows that showed up already smashed."

They’re about the normalcy of the everyday los lonely low esteemed everybody within us. It’s a body rockin’ way to uncover the insecurities of the party life, relationships, and white collar work whores, that couldn’t have happened anywhere but a parking lot of a jungle muraled apartment complex called The Metropolis. - Songlyrics.com

Bio

Who are we?

A band of degenerate “party-rappers,” seducing crowds with an off-shoot brand of power-ballads and sing-a-longs.

It sounds like People Under the Stairs battling Gary Busey in a UFC style cage fight, with additional combatants Kool Keith, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, and The Beach Boys (Surf-Hop?), in for the tussle.

We’ve performed with fellow hip-hop deviants Blowfly, MC Frontalot, Astronautalis and The Flobots. Rocked with the punks from the Riverboat Gamblers to the Ape-Shits. And warmed up the stage for “The World’s Funny Man,” Neil Hamburger.
