A-Plus, Opio, Phesto, and Tajai were just a bunch of school kids when they met in Oakland California, the place where they formed Souls of Mischief. Now after four albums and nearing closer to twenty years in the game they are still independently standing strong, working on a new tour and some upcoming releases.
Any aficionado of Hip Hop will tell you the frenzy 93 ‘Til Infinity invokes every time it’s dropped. With looping horns and rollercoaster laidback verses it’s an anthem that has gathered Hip Hop pilgrims coast to coast worldwide.
For sure it’s been a long hiatus since their last release Tour Stories EP and an even longer wait since a full-blown LP, but set for release early 2010 the new offering Montezuma’s Revenge has all the right ingredients to get us bouncing.
Produced by the renowned Prince Paul, word through the grapevine is the Cali boys locked themselves in a secluded log cabin to find nature and inspiration during the recording.

This month they will hit Europe for a little tour. Within that they play four exclusive Carhartt instore gigs, where all Souls of Mischief fans can get a strictly limited box set with a CD, a shirt and additional hard to get goodies.
