On this day last year, Potholes In My Blog streamed Legrowlize It! Vol. II, adding, “whether or not you celebrated cannabis on Apr. 20, the often playful, occasionally majestic sonic landscapes lacing this free release make Vol. 2 a must-listen for production aficionados and longtime fans of the Souls of Mischief rhymer and beat smith.”
A-Plus had a busy 2014 with the release of Souls of Mischief’s There Is Only Now, a cinematic collaborative effort with renowned producer and multi-instrumentalist Adrian Younge on Adrian’s Linear Labs record label. The legendary Hieroglyphics sub-group released the project in four formats: CD, digital, picture-disc vinyl, and cassette tape. More recently the group finished a Canadian tour in February.

Souls of Mischief Background:
Starting with their landmark debut ‘93 ’til Infinity, Oakland’s four-person rap group Souls of Mischief has blazed the trail for hip hop’s evolution. Members Tajai, A-Plus, Phesto, and Opio have left their mark sonically, lyrically, and stylistically on Kanye West, Just Blaze, Big Sean, Big K.R.I.T., P. Diddy, Vampire Weekend, John Mayer, and many more who have cited them as cultural icons and influencers. Souls is also credited as having pioneered the independent label movement when they started Hieroglyphic Imperium Records in 1997 following their departure with JIVE Records, creating the infrastructure blueprint for other successful independent hip hop labels. Co-founders of the Hiero label also include emcees Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Casual, Pep Love, and producer Domino. Souls’ also forged hip-hop’s relationship with the skate, surf, and snowboard communities after iconic skate brands included their music in their VHS videotapes in the mid-90’s. The group’s creative output and legacy as a whole continues to thrive, and they show no sign of stopping. In 2013, Souls celebrated the 20 year anniversary of ’93 til Infinity, prepped a documentary film, embarked on a 50-city “Still Infinity Tour,” and released a joint 20th anniversary limited edition tee shirt capsule collection with Ecko Unlimited. They are now prepping for the August 26th release of their sixth studio album, There Is Only Now, a cinematic collaborative effort with renowned producer Adrian Younge on Adrian’s newly launched Linear Labs record label.
