True Justice: aka The Man of Steel, has been a pioneer in the Bay Area Hip Hop scene since 1989. In an era where real deejaying skills have become scare, True Justice holds the torch, and is known for tearing clubs down in every city and every town. No stranger to hustle and showmanship, he comes from the era of constantly packing the vinyl crates and being out on the road! True's ambition is to showcase the amount of talent that he has amassed in the last 17 years in Northern California, better known as The Yay Area. While still in high school, True Justice was a hip hop dancer for the Oakland, CA super-group A.P.G. (Action Packed Gangstas), and at the age of 16, he found himself doing concerts with the likes of Digital Underground, Capital Tax, Paris and K-Cloud -- while witnessing first hand the birth of the independent hip hop game in the culturally rich Bay Area. From 1989-91, True studied A.P.G.'s master DJ J-Cutt as he amazed crowds night after night with his show-stealing solo routines with two turntables, a mixer, and two copies of the same record. When he arrived in Berkeley in 1992, True Justice (then known as DJ Skillz), traded his patent leather shoes for two Technic turntables and a Gemini mixer. For years you could see True selling cassette tapes on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, CA alongside favorites of today: Living Legends, Saafir, and the Hobo Junction. In 1996, True formed the All Purpose DJs with Lord Takim, DJ Styles, and DJ Lex. That same year he began a career of show deejaying, first with Dream Nefra, and then later with Mic T, AceyAlone & Abstract Rude, Aesop and Planet Asia. He is currently Guerrilla Funk's resident DJ, handling tour duties with Paris and T-K.A.S.H. He also works with Enzyme Dynamite of The Bayliens. As a duo True Justice and DJ Lex released Volume 1 in 1997, Aural Sex Volume 2 in 1998, AP2K in 2000, and Pound Fa Pound in 2004. All releases quickly became local classics. The All Purpose DJs have excited crowds with icons such as Slick Rick, Biz Markie, Notorious B.I.G., Xzibit, Phife, Keak Da Sneak, Above The Law, and E-40. In 2001, True and Lex toured in Osaka, Japan, garnering legions of fans of their dexterity on the wheels of steel. A bonafide student of showmanship, True continued to hone his craft, and in 2007, True Justice dropped his self-titled debut album and joined forces with The Bayliens -- "Aliens from The Bay" -- and dropped the CD Crop Circles in the same year. From 2007 to 2011, True Justice toured worldwide with The Bayliens, Living Legends, Mistah F.A.B., Zion I, Paris, The Alkaholiks, Jeru The Damaja, Lords Of The Underground, The Beatnuts, Onyx, Redman and EPMD. In 2015, True orchestrated the highly successful Slap Frost Tour with Paris and Locksmith. True will be appearing throughout the USA and Europe in 2016, supporting his sophomore effort, The Man of Steel, on Guerrilla Funk. Equipto: Ilych Sato, better known by his stage name Equipto, also known as Equip or Young Equip, is an American rapper and producer from San Francisco. He is best known for his Horns and Halos series with fellow rapper Andre Nickatina. He is also the founder of the groups 3 Shades of Rhythm, which consists of Equipto, P. Whaley & T.D., & Bored Stiff, whose members are Big Shawn (not to be confused with Big Sean), Dub Star, Equipto, Ike, Julz, Liel League, MIC, Mint Rock, P-Way, Priz & T.D. Vocab Slick: Vocab Slick started rhyming as a teenager in the North Bay area in the late 90s, but like many young Americans, he fell into a life of hustling and drugs, invetiabely leading to some jail stints for the young emcee. Facing serious consequences, Vocab—then known as Vocabulary Slick—pulled it together, cleaned himself up and began putting that energy into his music, releasing the Lyrically Conscious LP in 2003. In 2003, Vocab and childhood friend Emotionall formed the group Distant Relatives. Later joined by emcee Maynee, the group went on to release For The Passion in 2006. Not long after their inaugural release, Emotionall was detained and surprisingly deported to Mexico. Finding themselves at a crossroad, V.S. and Maynee decided to press forward with their vision for Distant Relatives, continuing on their path to create “truth music.” The two emcees teamed with the talented DJ Ricky Switch—an Irishman freshly calling SF home—and in 2007 released the LP The Ethx of Distant Relatives, produced entirely by Fremont-based producer Ethx. In 2010, Vocab Slick released Dark Day, showcasing his ability to make powerful solo music. In 2011, Distant Relatives returned with This Changes Everything, earning underground praise and coverage on blogs and college radio around the country and overseas. The LP—produced entirely by Rick Vargas—featured The Grouch & Eligh and Zumbi of Zion I. After taking some personal time following both the death of his mother and the birth of his daughter in the Summer of 2013, the sudden passing of his best friend and rap partner Maynee in January of 2014 galvanized Vocab to get back in the studio to create and record more and more music. “I took that pain and poured it into my music.” Vocab released the Somethin’ Slick EP on April 2nd 2014 and his Issues And Episodes LP on November 25th 2014.
