Emerging from the city of Los Angeles California the home of west coast hip hop, The Literates are making their mark across the globe! As leaders in their craft, they have managed to extend beyond the typical idea of what hip hop has been viewed as. From the sound of their music to the lifestyle they represent, originality has always been a key staple for this duo. The Literates consist of two individuals,"A.N.T.I." (Another Name To Identify) & Vyz a.k.a "Vyzualz".
These two have come together to create a movement that cannot be denied! With the music industry at a standstill and most artists sounding redundant and bland, The Lits remain focused with the objective to remind the world of what real hip hop truly is... this group brings you real, raw, uncut hip hop with dark beats and intelligent lyrics.
Hard work has become more than just a habit for this Hip-Hop ensemble hailing from Los Angeles, California. The Literates are known for hard beats, raw lyrics and a live show guaranteed to have any onlooker leaving the venue aching for more. By performing with such names as; Cypress Hill, KRS ONE, Shape Shifters, The Germs, and countless others, they have acquired a large selection of listeners ranging from your average B-boy and Girl, to Punk, Rock and Metal fans. Also gaining support of numerous Hip-Hop radio shows throughout the U.S. The Literates have learned to utilize all available resources to gain exposure across continents and seas, reminding the forgetful, of what Hip-Hop should be; positive, inspiring and creative. With nothing but high expectations of success, The Litz will continue to rock shows and create quality music for all willing to listen. And for those unwilling, the image of these three, music driven "Hip-Hop Junkies" will forever stay embedded in their brains.
