ARTIST INFO:

activist
[ak-tuh-vist]
noun
1. an especially active, vigorous advocate of a cause, especially a political cause.

That may be the dictionary definition of the word, but words have created a whole new platform to expand it, for a duo from the Midwest United States. Growing up in Albert Lea, a small town in southern Minnesota, the least common thing to pursue is music, or art in general. Adam Quincy and T. Shaw began their journey as high school students freestyling on the way home from basketball games, but soon became totally immersed in hip-hop culture. Each come from different musical backgrounds, with Quincy leaning toward the old school and Shaw toward new school, but this dichotomy is what sparked the early inspiration. Since the group’s inception, their goal has been to bridge the gap between substance and familiarity, while also resurrecting the art of lyricism. Ranging from haunting rap ballads to lighthearted anthems, the arsenal of these two is limitless.
