The Grouch
The Grouch
The Grouch is one of the founding members of the internationally infamous crew, The Living Legends. Humbly beginning on a 4-track recorder nearly 15 years ago, The Grouch has steadily grown into one of the prominent figures within the independent hip hop scene. Known for captivating his listeners with his down to earth and truthfully poignant raps and production, The Grouch has successfully released over ten solo projects, independently. In addition to his solo career, The Grouch has played an integral part in building the Living Legends brand, sound, and image. A consummate workaholic, The Grouch also has numerous groups outside of his solo career and LL collective, most notably: The Grouch & Eligh, Zion I & The Grouch, and The CMA with Living Legends crewmate, Luckyiam.
Pure Powers
Pure Powers
Pure Powers is an independent hip hop artist originating out of West Sonoma County, California. Much of his youth was spent on the island of Maui, in and around the southside town of Kihei. After a decade of live performing throughout Hawaii and Northern California, the full length LP, "My Album", is slated for independent release in summer 2014. A long time collaborator of Hawaiian hip hop collective Kamehameha Projects, Pure's album documents a lifelong passion for hip hop culture, community, and roots music. The album features pioneers of the California underground, such as Scarub of Living Legends, Ellay Khule of Project Blowed, and Kirby Dominant, while also showcasing the talents of established emcees such as Nohokai, Iamae, Kapu, Vocab Slick, Spends Quality, Wordsmiff, Aerin Monroe, and Dublin of Shotgun Wedding Quintet. Pure puts it all on the line for his high energy live performances which have recently seen him sharing the stage with Gift of Gab, Aceyalone, Pep Love, PSC luckyiam, The Grouch, Casual, The Alcoholics, Cali Agents, Rappin' 4tay, Wildcard, Sole from Anticon, and more.
Scarub
Scarub
When he wasn't watching Yo MTV Raps or Pump It up, Scarub, like many other L.A. hip-hop heads, grew up listening to the all hip-hop radio station, KDAY. It was during these early years that Scarub first gave himself the name Quaz (The kid who did), and later Mudd Foot, before settling on Scarub as his mc moniker. Scarub first hit the stage during an 8th grade talent show and he hasn't looked back since. As a student at L.A.'s Hamilton High, Scarub hooked up with fellow students Eligh and Murs and the trio formed the 3 Meloncholy Gypsy's or 3MG. Scarub like the rest of 3MG eventually made the move up to the bay area where he hooked up with Mystik Journeymen and was put down with the Living Legends crew.
