Shape Shifters, The
Profile of the performer Shape Shifters, The:
In the ever-fluctuating, mercurial culture of hip-hop, very few groups, let alone solo rap artists, have sustained longevity. Enter the Shape Shifters, the storied Los Angeles underground collective that’s been making their own eclectic, brand of hip-hop for virtually a decade.
Indeed, ever since the group emerged out of the legendary mid-city, Los Angeles graffiti scene in the early nineties, the Shape Shifters, by virtue of their original, genre-bending and most importantly, uniquely creative musical sensibilities, have established themselves as one of the most reliable and downright interesting subterranean rap acts in recent memory, creating a virtual cult following in the process.
Originally based around LA graf writers Perk, Meck, Realm Ser and Rob 1 (all of the CBS crew), the Shape Shifters began to emerge as noteworthy rhyme crew in the early nineties.
Impressed by what their peers were doing, graf writers from other Los Angeles crews and also other hip-hop collectives like Live Wires and The Chain Smokers, clicked up with the Shape Shifters, What resulted was a somewhat nebulous, ever-changing but always on-point crew who quickly developed a following of fans through creative and abstract sound, reminiscent of Project Blowed and The Good Life era of LA underground hip-hop.
