True 2 Life Music is a rap crew composed of emcees Slangston Hughes and the emcee/production duo Jackie Rob (Concise & k.Words). After meeting as friendS with similar music interests at Cornell University the crew formed and developed their sound. Musically, the sound is hip hop, influenced by everything including Soul, R&B, Funk, Punk, Rock and Reggae. Mostly produced by Jackie Rob, the “True 2 Life Sound� has always been based on being fresh to death. Whether the feeling is more soulful, smooth, fun or edgy, the artists bring a level of realness that allows them to tip-toe on the line between larger than life personalities and down to earth people.

As a collective, they embody hip hop striving towards its full potential. The artists all desire to make great music that expresses who they are in various aspects of their lives. True 2 Life refers to the musical aspect of the group, but more importantly is the culture and identity when it comes to their style and mind set. Hoping to enlighten, inspire, and of course entertain, the group is poised on continuing their sound which has always been able to get heads nodding and feet tapping. This is especially seen with their performance energy. True 2 Life Music’s stage show is a high energy, passionate, and moving experience. It is truly like a party on stage. They will always be on the front line being true representatives of hip hop urging the people to live, love, and listen.

Recently we've been building a name for ourselves from both a music and production/songwriting stand point. But I'll spare you the "how great we are" jargon and give you a quick glimpse of recent accomplishments...
