"Self-produced. Self-promoted. Self-made.
We prefer our music raw!"
Colorado natives Colin "Lucid" Severing and Andrew "Ruthless" Cordova met in 2005, and instantly formed a bond/vision/message through music.
"Being on stage was not something I initially saw myself doing.. Production was more my stelo at that time. Lucid just kept asking me back to perform. First as a hype-man at his shows, then as we wrote more and more songs together, we started to get more dope feedback. This expectation just kind of arose that we were a duo... and that's what we became."
Severing and Cordova spent some time gathering a local following, and fighting it out with other emcees at freestyle battles. They grabbed the attention of Eric Von (producer) who signed on to work with the duo. In 2008, "Lucid and Ruthless" became an official collaborative project.
"Eric Von (511 Beatz,) and C.O. Muzik (D.B.M.G.) have both contributed countless exclusive instrumentals to our project. Nowadays, Eric Von is out in L.A. doing his thing, and C.O. is all the way down in Florida running the East coast. As underground artists nothing feels better than knowing your giving and getting exposure from the people you grew up with. Knowing that love is still there. That's why we still do this."
Since then "Lucid and Ruthless" have been moving forward as an unrelenting force in the Northern Colorado hip-hop scene.
