THE ALKAHOLIKS
Tha Liks are an iconic hip hop group from Los Angeles. The trio has produced party music with a hardcore hip hop edge since the early 1990s. Powered by the beats of Producer DJ E-Swift and the rhymes of J-Ro and Tash. Their catalog includes highly praised debut album, "21 & Over" described as "the quintessential West Coast party album."

In 2017, the group is gearing up for a Spring/Summer US tour, and an international release of their documentary film "Who Are Tha Alkaholiks" is in the works.

Their documentary film will take audiences to a different level of understanding about Tha Liks' history and legacy, and relationship with the industry. Including, their impact on the Southern California music scene, crossover appeal, and development of a multi-cultural fan base.

VOCAB SLICK
Facing serious consequences, Vocab—then known as Vocabulary Slick—pulled it together, cleaned himself up and began putting that energy into his music, releasing the Lyrically Conscious LP in 2003.

In 2003, Vocab and childhood friend Emotionall formed the group Distant Relatives. Later joined by emcee Maynee, the group went on to release For The Passion in 2006. Not long after their inaugural release, Emotionall was detained and surprisingly deported to Mexico. Finding themselves at a crossroad, V.S. and Maynee decided to press forward with their vision for Distant Relatives, continuing on their path to create "truth music." The two emcees teamed with the talented DJ Ricky Switch—an Irishman freshly calling SF home—and in 2007 released the LP The Ethx of Distant Relatives, produced entirely by Fremont-based producer Ethx.

In 2010, Vocab Slick released Dark Day, showcasing his ability to make powerful solo music.

In 2011, Distant Relatives returned with This Changes Everything, earning underground praise and coverage on blogs and college radio around the country and overseas. The LP—produced entirely by Rick Vargas—featured The Grouch & Eligh and Zumbi of Zion I.

After taking some personal time following both the death of his mother and the birth of his daughter in the Summer of 2013, the sudden passing of his best friend and rap partner Maynee in January of 2014 galvanized Vocab to get back in the studio to create and record more and more music.

"I took that pain and poured it into my music."

Vocab released the Somethin' Slick EP on April 2nd 2014 and his Issues And Episodes LP on November 25th 2014.
