A four piece Hip Hop group out of Connecticut. Consisting of an MC, Bassist, Drummer, and a D.J./Turntablist/Live Sampler. While Boom Bap, Funk/Soul Breaks, and Electro are the foundation , they are NOT the perimeter. The themes to the songs vary just like the sound. Ranging from traditional party rockin’, social commentary, satire/toungue and cheek, story telling and Battle rhymes. We refuse to waste your time. Concepts, whether abstract or concrete are aimed at making you nod your head, dance, and think. Live shows differ from recordings. So come out to a show! Political Animals describes our humanity and how we interact with each other and the universe.
