Souls of Mischief w/Kev Choice & Amerigo Gazaway


Get out your Rosetta Stone, ’cause it’s time to read some hieroglyphics! Souls of Mischief was the first group to emerge from the ranks of the West Coast proto-backpacker collective of the same name, which also included Casual and Del tha Funkee Homosapien. Their funk-heavy, rhyme-packed debut, ’93 Til Infinity, shares turf with A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul, and is enjoying a well-deserved reputation as an overlooked classic. Celebrating the LP’s 20th anniversary, the Souls are on a cross-country tour with a full band, and their Nashville stop shines a light on one of our finest MC/producers, Amerigo Gazaway. We’d be hard-pressed to find a better addition to the bill: Despite a recent cease-and-desist from Sony in regards to Bizarre Tribe, a Pharcyde/Tribe Called Quest mashup of weapons-grade dopeness, Amerigo and his partners at Gummy Soul have impressed no less a tastemaker than Roots drummer Questlove — a man not known for his tolerance of bullshit — who has distributed Gazaway’s most recent mixtapes via Okayplayer.
