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.

North West London artist Razor has spent the last few years networking tirelessly and raising his profile with a series of nationally recognised mixtapes, magazine features and award nominations for Exposure Music and The Official Mixtape Awards.
‘The Distraction’ is Razor’s latest EP and the follow up to 2012’s ‘Progression’ release. With this release Razor again uses his music as expression, as therapy, as catharsis; speaking on the events in his life that could have shut down him and his rise, and confronting them through his art.
Recently Razor emerged as the winner of the ‘In It To Win It’ rap competition, going up against artists like English Frank, Pyrelli and Jammin and has subsequently had the video for his song ‘Closer’ produced by Link Up TV – adding to his growing catalog of videos in rotation, including those featured on Channel AKA’s Hoodtube playlist.
Razor has also performed at open mic showcases across the city, including those hosted by DJ Charlie Sloth (BBC 1Xtra) and DJ Quincy (Choice fm), and has recently expanded beyond London, all the while pursuing his own strategy of independent distribution and promotion. Plans for touring Ayia Napa along with DJ Quincy are currently in process.
