Tell us a bit about yourselfs?
Scoop Lo: We’ve both had substantial solo careers and grew up on similar areas. Being that we both love hip hop
Dj aqueous: Yes, we originally connected with each other online. Scoop was looking for a DJ/Producer for a Heather Gin Project and after that it was obvious that it was only the beginning. We both knew there would be a lot more collaborative efforts to come.
How and when did you get started? What hip-hop albums did you grow up listening to?
Scoop Lo: I started out in a group but we broke up. Then i went out on my own and did ok. It was a learning experience dealing with certain things at labels and just the engagement.
Dj aqueous: I started out as a DJ Roadie in high school and then started doing parties, then doing my own parties and in college I started to make beats in my dorm room. My first CD was Midnight Marauders by A Tribe Called Quest. Q-Tip was a huge inspiration on my creative development as a result.
