FROBACK!!!! Stepchild “Hanging Around”

posted on June 27th 2008 in Frolaborators with 4 Comments

Yo! This is a special edition Froback to my early days in the biz. Met these cats when they left LA (for most of the group members first time) and landed in DC to record their first LP as the crew called Sex Cymbal. That project never saw the light of day (industry rule #4080 wins again) but that didn’t stop the 5 man crew from living out their dreams. Hence the hook from the song. The album was a dope blend of Hiphop beats mixed with damn good sanging! If you can find the album go straight to the track “Live for today” that song is on my lifelong playlist of best songs i ‘ve ever heard list forever! I run into Pape , Bro Rahim and Baby Paw from the crew since moving to LA. You Berto ,Ced ,Tre, Whats really good holla at your folks. Injoi and have a safe weekend!

Greg "Cognito" Barr first entered the hip hop world as a dancer during the early 1990s in the DC metro area. Later his love for hip hop brought him to Atlanta, GA where he formed the underground group massinfluence. With massinfluence, the relationships within the music industry grew both here in the US and abroad during their many European tours with the likes of the Company Flow, Beat Junkies, Jurassic 5, De La Soul, Blackstar and many others. Also during these years is when Cognito, also known as "Nito", put his mark in hip hop iconography by introducing his line of t-shirts "Nonstop Hip Hop" which was featured in classic video by De La Soul and Jeru the Damaja. Over the past 10 years, Nito has captured classic footage of some of hip hops greatest, including Jay Z, Mos Def, The Gorillaz, Nikka Costa, MF DOOM, De La Soul, Pharoahe Monch and The Roots. Recently, Cognito shot and compiled 4 years of concert and behind the scenes footage of Talib Kweli for a still to be released documentary.
