LOL! Pick Fros Not Fights!

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.

    This is hot! As a native Detroiter I’m always pissed when cats mention em when he ain’t even the from the D. You mention Dilla and iggas don’t even know who he is or how much he changed the game.

    Alot of producers made serious money trying to be like dilla or having that Jay Dee sound. 1800 get deez nuts !

    The best is in the game the best that ever did it! RIP! and Good looking ?uest and company for the redux.

    Respect real hip-hop and stop buying this snap finger, pop champagne music!
