In an era of lackluster musical quality, and a lot of raised eyebrows concerning the state of hip hop...the light amidst the darkness had yet to be seen. April 28, 1983 the world is introduced to Elijah "Frank THE Phre$h" Jackson, four months later on August 16, earth shakes hands with Ernest Pharr III, aka "EP3". Born worlds apart, these two young men would grow to become avid listeners and students of Hip Hop, Jazz, and other music legends of old. Having met while attending school at East Carolina University, both have had their fair share of success as solo entities. EP3 familiarized ECU with the lyrically potent and fan frenzy song "Escalades", putting and end to the belief that crunk and hype hip hop had no lyrical quality. Soon after, Frank THE Phre$h would go on to introduce "Love Somebody" to the female population, setting at ease the minds of those who had begun to think that hip hop no longer respectfully addressed women as engines of purity. In 2007, these two young men would come to a consensus that they should combine talents, very similar to the effects of the Wonder Twins. Having graduated from East Carolina University with degrees in Communication, they seek to convey the point that "rapping" was NOT a way out for them. Educating oneself should NOT be considered going against the grain of Hip Hop culture, and this notion is reflecting in their intelligent lyrical content. Now the world shall know Frank THE Phre$h & EP3...The SpitZwell Brotherz.
