“The Procussions are set to saturate the globe with their B-boy energy and powerful message of positive change. They are a multi-cultural group that not only break the normal stereotypes of what mainstream hip hop must be but as well aren’t afraid to discuss issues that other rappers don’t: rape, child abuse, neglect. One example is “Miss January” featuring Talib Kweli which discusses the perils of having to say goodbye to a destructive relationship. The three man crew consisting of Mr. J Mederios, Stro and Rez befriended each other while growing up in Colorado but now make Los Angeles their home. With musical influences stemming from the Golden Era of Hip-Hop, to J Dilla to Megadeth, their sound is a style that reflects all genres of music.” Rawkus Records
