Language Arts Crew

Language Arts Crew is a five-piece hip-hop group formed in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2000. Based in San Jose with a frontline of four MC’s and two heavy weight producers. Their style exhibits a lyrical depth, technique, and stage presence that has them on the cutting edge of the Bay Area underground hip-hop scene . Their seven-inch single “Lazy Daze in California,” and full-length releases ”Applied Knowledge” and "I Shot the Shepherd" have kept a stronghold in local record sales for several months despite the absence of label support. They have helped create a focal point for hip-hop fans along with a few other groups within San Jose’s relatively small music scene, giving an ever-growing head-count to a presently neglected circuit. They have also shared the stage with hip-hop Talents such as Mos Def, The Living Legends, The Visionaries, Sage Francis, Zion I, Aceylone, Ugly Duckling, Sacred Hoop, Hieroglyphics, Cali Agents, 2 Mex, Abstract Rude and The Earthlings. Language Arts Crew continues to win the affection of crowds in their home town of San Jose and all across the west coast, bringing showmanship and a positive message to an increasingly supersaturated and mediocre hip-hop culture.
