"pass the mic"
hailing from SOUTH BEND, IN, the B.E.A.T. is the closest thing to THE ROOTS out there! LIVE INSTRUMENTS + HIP HOP LYRICISM + BLAZING MUSICIANSHIP!!!
musically drawing influence from bands such as THE ROOTS, BATTLES, MINUS THE BEAR, & SOULIVE, while lyrically drawing influence all over the underground hip-hop map, from NAS to MF DOOM to LUPE FIASCO, their sound is in a level of its own. eschewing overproduced ear-candy, this band creates live loops and effects on the spot that typically require studio manipulation. the music connects!!!
