Performance: Little Brother With A Good Rap For The Hiero Day Crowd & A Good Word For #TeamJayforce (Video)

Wow! Now this is EPIC!!! Thank you for sharing the experience Brother Odell #TeamJayforce #DoperThanYourTeam #JustSaying #NowShowing

Sometimes it takes a good festival to have one of your favorite Hip-Hop groups rocking out on stage. Well, I want to say thank you to Hieroglyphics Crew who had Little Brother on the bill for Hiero Day 2019. Phonte & Rapper Pooh rocked tracks from their classic “The Listening” album to current hits from the new “May The Lord Watch” album. Phonte also shares with the crowd how back in 2003 Hieroglyphics took LB out on their first tour; something that they will always be thankful for! Watch, Comment, Enjoy, and Share!

Making Of A Mural: Street Artists Honor A Tribe Called Quest (Video)

These are Hip-Hop hieroglyphics. Respect to Greg Poole. Been hearing good things about this happening, but this vid puts it in perspective. Back in the day… to now… on the Boulevard of Linden. A Tribe Called Quest. RIP Phife.

25 years after the release of their classic LP “Low End Theory,” watch as a mural honoring A Tribe Called Quest goes up at the site of their iconic 1991 video for “Check The Rhime.”

Hieroglyphics – “Gun Fever” (Video)

Heiroglyphics fans now have more reasons to rep the dot-dot-dot-dash (the Hiero ‘Third Eye’ logo)… “Gun Fever” and the video… relevance (re: gun control debate) AND dopenesss (that’s right, #with3sss)! Nice video by their Hiero Crew homie Casual. “Gun Fever” by Hieroglyphics (produced by Gully Duckets) is off the upcoming project “The Kitchen.”

Watch. Read. Think. Form your own opinion. Hiero is sharing facets of theirs from their platform…as is their right.

‘”We are not promoting guns or violence, but simply expressing our thoughts on the issue and encouraging further dialogue.”‘
