New CD from rap vets still ridin to infinity
From the groups website
Souls of Mischief is an alternative hip hop group from Oakland, California, that is also part of the hip hop collective, Hieroglyphics and is composed of emcees A-Plus, Opio, Phesto, and Tajai.
The group informally formed in high school before making their major-label debut on Jive Records with their well-received album 93 ’til Infinity, in 1993. In January 1998, their début was named one of the Top 100 Rap albums by The Source magazine. The group stayed with Jive for one more album, 1995’s No Man’s Land, before being released from the label during that same year.
Following the release of the group from its major-label contract with Jive, the group officially formed the alternative hip-hop collective Hieroglyphics, with emcees Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Casual, Pep Love, Jaybiz, and producer Domino. The group participated as full members in both Hieroglyphics’ studio albums: 1998’s 3rd Eye Vision, and 2003’s Full Circle. The group has released two albums on the Hiero’s self-owned independent label, Hieroglyphics Imperium Recordings, 1999’s Focus, and 2000’s Trilogy: Conflict, Climax, Resolution.
The group recently released their first album in almost ten years Montezuma’s Revenge featuring production from the legendary Prince Paul (De La Soul, Stetsasonic) to stellar reviews.

Just a reminder: these are not the complete songs, just 90-second clips so you can get a feel for the music. If you like what you hear, buy the CD. If we want good hip hop to flourish, we’ve gotta support the artists.
