Passport is like the High Evolutionary (a Marvel Comic reference) gene spiced the Fugees & Black Eye Peas together with some New Mutant X Factor genes from Mr Sinister (Another Marvel Comic reference) with a splash of NERD, and Andre 3000.


Every 5 years or so, the clouds see fit to open up and bless us earth beings with a group of otherworldly individuals that bear the music of the gods. This usually occurs during times of creative depression and extreme musical duress.
This is one of those times.
Before the inception of PASSPORT, these three uniquely talented individuals created a major buzz within the underground music scene in Atlanta. This local buzz expanded nationally and internationally, landing each artist on stages everywhere from Minnesota to Bangkok. Individually, each member of PASSPORT is a seasoned veteran, with appearances and accolades including, but not limited to, an appearance on Oxygen Network's Bad Girls Club, writing and producing for Teddy Riley's production company, The Artist Factory, and membership in IMA and The Dungeon Family.
After meeting at Apache Cafe's "Tru Skool Tuesdays", a mutual respect began to form amongst the trio, eventually leading them to collaboration. They eventually realized that they were not three people making songs together, but essentially one group. As the sound began to take form, PASSPORT became a real, living, breathing monster in the music world.
Compared to such supergroups as The Fugees, N.E.R.D., and The Black Eyed Peas, PASSPORTS Collin Gibson and Jawz of Life mix their underground hip-hop backgrounds with Coco Jones' soulful singing and lyricism to form a sound straight from the future.
Ray Murray of Organized Noize said it best:
"This is so refreshing... exactly what the game needs."

The future is here, and their name is Passport.
