Hailing from Bellingham Washington, the three rain soaked childhood friends
switched from consuming to creating conscious hip hop music during their high
school years and began performing at assemblies. The group felt it important to
portray, through their lyrics, that young males have more on their minds than
perpetuating materialistic stereotypes, however, this message is laced with a
clever sarcasm. By promoting a shameless humility, the educataz quickly
captured the hearts of the local Bellingham hip hop heads, and released the
relevent ep in fall 2003. In an attempt to expand, in october of 2004, the
group took their chances with middle America and traveled, via mobile home,
from the northwest to the north east. The mission involved hooking up with
Wesleyan University super producer Dave Ahl. In a short two months what was
created was a magnificent new twist on a classic hiphop-jazz fusion. The east
west collaboration produced the Selfish EP. Selfish is aimed at
traditional heads who love original lyricstyles, and music lovers in general who
will be unable to deny the brilliance behind this production.
