For over a decade now this Bozeman, Montana based hip-hop duo have been blazing a trail throughout the Northwest as well as from coast to coast. Known as "The Original 406ers", emcees Contact and Nickel B are considered by many to be pioneers in their home state and region of the country when it comes to releasing studio albums, touring, and simply rocking every microphone they come face to face with. Their music can be described as raw hip-hop in the purest form, relying on natural rhyme skills instead of watered down fraudulent gimmicks. Since forming sometime around the year 2002 this crew has released around a dozen full length albums and have shared the stage with everybody from 50 Cent, The Game, and Tech N9ne to acts such as DMX, Ja Rule, Wu-Tang Clan, and everyone in between. They have even been fortunate enough to record tracks with the likes of Cappadonna, Spice 1, Edo. G, Stevie Stone, and Skee-Lo as well as many others. Although a meeting with Universal Records in 2008 didn't lead to a major deal, the two have been able to stay relevant in an industry that is over saturated by any rapper with a laptop and a Facebook page. In 2010 the Filth Fam was personally invited to perform at the world famous Roxy theater on Sunset by Houston legend Devin the Dude, who is also featured on one of their records. These self proclaimed fathers of the "No-Coast" movement have appeared in several newspaper articles and have graced the pages of One Nation and Murder Dog magazines. It is still a mystery why no labels have snatched up these emcees yet, but it is certain that no matter what the odds may be, they will continue to represent for their state and always try to preserve the integrity of this thing we call hip-hop.
