Friday, February 23rd, 2018 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Defari – Rare Poise

Image: 1617646 A member of the Likwit Crew alongside King T, Tha Alkaholiks, and
Xzibit, rapper Defari was bornin Santa Monica, CA. He began DJing
in 1982, moving on to MCing five years later. Music remained only a
hobby, however, and after earning a sociology degree at the University
of California at Berkeley he went on to receive a master’s degree in
history and education at Colombia, accepting a high school teaching
position upon graduating. In 1994, Defari recorded his first demo, soon
after meeting Alkholiks producer E-Swift, together they recorded the track
“Big Up,” which appeared on the 1995 compilation Next Chapter: Strictly
Underground. A single, “Bionic,” followed a year later before Defari signed
with Tommy Boy Records to issue his full-length debut Focused Daily in
1999. A career spanning nearly 20 years resumes with his latest release
Rare Poise. Entirely produced by Evidence (Dilated Peoples).

When it came to conceptualizing his third album, revered lyricist Defari took it to the streets. “I took the advice of my fans, and they told me my best effort was Focused Daily,” he says of the conversations that resulted in his stunning new album “Street Music“. “So, I wanted to take it back to “Focused Daily” and turn it up times 20. That’s what Street Music is about. That’s where hip-hop began. That’s what I am, a hip-hop artist, and that’s what I’m giving them, a straight bang-out.”

With Defari’s next-level lyricism and poised flows, as well as stellar production from Evidence (Dilated Peoples), The Alchemist, Mike City, DJ Babu (Dilated Peoples), Superstar Quamallah and E-Swift (Alkaholiks), “Street Music” hits on all cylinders …

If DJ Revolution were merely the on-air DJ for Sway and King Tech’s The Wake Up Show, that would be reason enough for his fame. The world-famous syndicated weekly hip hop show has helped break a record or two in its time, and Revolution has been the one manning the ones and twos for the past few years. But DJ Revolution also produced Sway and King Tech’s album “This Or That”, and has released a pair of full-length albums himself, 1999’s “R2K Version 1.0” and 2000’s “In 12’s We Trust”.

DJ Revolution has also provided sensational scratches over the years for crews like Styles Of Beyond. A number of these benificiaries return the love on DJ Revolution’s Ground Control album “In 12’s We Trust” – most notably Dilated Peoples (DJ Babu and Evidence), Defari, DJ Craze, Roc Raida, the The X-Ecutioners, and Cali Agents Rasco and Planet Asia …
