Rap Group Partners With Marc Ecko Enterprises To Celebrate the 20 Year Anniversary of Their Classic 93 Til Infinity Album with A Massive Nationwide Tour.
It’s hard to believe that 20 years have passed since the Oakland, California based rap group Souls of Mischief, consisting of Tajai, Opio, Phesto, and A-Plus, released their debut album 93 ‘til Infinity. The album and title track is widely considered a benchmark in the history of hip-hop music and culture not only in the US but worldwide. To commemorate this anniversary, the four-man crew will release a remix of the single “93 ‘til Infinity” featuring an all-star roster of talent (names to be announced this summer.) In addition, they will act as brand ambassadors for a limited capsule collection with iconic fashion and lifestyle brand Ecko, which also turns twenty this year. The celebration will culminate in a nationwide tour where Souls of Mischief will perform classic songs as well as new material with a live band.
Speaking on the evolution of hip-hop that has occurred since Souls of Mischief began their storied career, Hieroglyphics member Pep Love commented, “Hip-hop culture and music were destined to become pop culture from [the] beginning. Misrepresentation and exploitation are the only real problems. Hip-hop is socially conscious at its very core and its very essence. I believe that Hieroglyphics truly represents hip hop and going forward we will help to spark a resurgence and bring the true representation to the masses.”
With their constant touring, album releases, brand merchandising, infamous block parties, song placement in movie soundtracks and snowboard documentaries, and more, Souls of Mischief continue to remain a relevant, creative and inspirational force in music.
New single + video from the Hieroglyphics Crew, titled “Gun Fever” available now on iTunes.
In the midst of a nationwide highly controversial debate about gun control the Hiero Crew chimes in with their unique perspective. Known as pioneers of the underground Hieroglyphics continues to push the envelope with this stunning visual directed in house by Casual.
“We are not promoting guns or violence,” explains Tajai (Hieroglyphics / Souls Of Mischief), “but simply expressing our thoughts on the issue and encouraging further dialogue.”
Hieroglyphics Imperium announces a new album from First Light (Pep Love and Opio) entitled “Fallacy Fantasy”. Kicking things off, they release the first single and video for “Lighters” featuring Hieroglyphics.

First Light gets its cue from the braggadocio and conceptual characteristics that were commonly expressed in the early nineties “Golden Era” of hip hop. But, at the same time, their way of displaying an affinity for and a loathing of the apathy and debauchery that permeates today’s pop culture is poetically contradictory. Hence, the title of their debut album Fallacy Fantasy in stores March 12th, 2013.
