WHY YOU SHOULD CARE: The triumvirate of SouthPaw, Waterpipe and Krumah K.A.P.O.W. (L.A., the Bay Area and St. Louis) came together and fused their own distinct styles to create one collective mic hustle. Oh and don’t sound like a jacktard, the group’s name is pronounced “One Hunned.”
THE IE’S LOCAL MUSIC SCENE ROCKS BECAUSE: “It’s also not L.A. “Gangster,” or Bay Area “Hyphy.” It’s a happy medium with its own style and territory, which musically has no boundaries. The IE has a diverse mixture of cultures who share common goals & mutual respect. It’s about a good time, progression, beautiful weather and women, faith, and musically; it’s 100’s own.”
