Defamation League

Hailing from Ocean Beach in San Diego, CA. Defamation League is an Alternative Hip-Hop group started in 2004. Today Defamation League consists of Nicky Sleez (Guitar/Synth/Vocals), Khemical Ali (EMC), J Remy (Bass), Zommer B (Drums) and DJ Skybeatz.

Founding members Nicky Sleez, Khemical Ali, and Dune Murderous may have had hugely different personalities, but they all shared a passion for hip hop music which drove them to form Defamation League. Def League started to gain notice with their unique style of genre-blending rap which they coined "Grit-Hop".

2006 brought many successes such as a feature story on Fox 11 news, a feature story in Hustler Magazine, and the award for Best Hip-Hop Group at the San Diego Music Awards. 2007 saw more success with the release of their second album, "League of the Living Dead". Shortly after they had generated enough hype for an appearance on the MTV up and coming artists show "On The Rise". In 2008 Khemical Ali was arrested in the DEA drug sting "Operation Sudden Fall" and band member Dune Murderous left the group to pursue a career in comedy. With time to mature a bit and reflect on the past few years, The League Is back! Pumping out songs with a new line-up that are more versatile and meaningful than anything they have put out to date.
