An Oakland based crew with grassroots that extend as far back as kindergarten (seriously, thats when some of the members first met), Hieroglyphics are one of the most legendary outfits in all of hip hop. Their albums (3rd Eye Vision, Full Circle) are seminal. Each member of the crew has enjoyed a wealth of solo success over the years, but its the Hiero crew that serves as their foundation. Even as they set off to explore other projects, somehow, someway, it all comes back to Hiero. Hiero is home.
And boy did Hiero find a home during our recent run on The Phoenix in Austin during SXSW '11. Here, Casual, Opio and DJ Toure give a rather slick performance, sharing rhymes that stem from a variety of sources over the years. Hiero, Souls of Mischief Crew, a heap of solo materialour latest brings with it the kind of highly practiced cohesiveness and general expertise few musical groups can claim to possess. Thats why Hiero is legendary, why they are one of the most important voices in hip hop history, and why were honored to bring you our latest release.
