With Naive originally hailing from Brighton, L.Lyricist from East London and Glastonbury, and Bva from Glastonbury, the group have been making hip hop together since 2004, being introduced at a early 3 amigos party supporting Terra Firma in Bath, where L.Lyricist and Bva were performing. L.Lyricist was originally Glastonbury’s most highly rated MC on the drum n bass scene before switching to hip hop when he and Bva started writing together. They were soon given gigs by Mr Alex Black at Baths biggest Hip Hop night - Beatpimps, this is where Naive saw them playing and got them to feature on his tracks, this is how the 3 amigos were formed!
