Underground heroes Keith Murray and Canibus define – Power. Passion. Poetry. Hip-Hop is littered with emcees that use these three words as the blueprint from which they attempt to construct their style, but the list of those who succeed is painfully short. Rakim, KRS-One and Big Daddy Kane immediately jump out as artists from an earlier era that best fused these three traits, joining Eminem, Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. from more recent times.
There are two underground titans that the mainstream will try to overlook, but those who know hip hop, know the skills of multi platinum “beautifullest vocabulist” Keith Murray and “lyrical sharpshooter” Canibus. Both known as two of hip-hop's heroes , they have recently joined forces to create THE UNDERGODS .
EP production skills includes Erick Sermon, The Beatminerz, Amadeus and Gordo.
