Riddlore? - A true OG in the underground.
This innovative emcee, DJ, and producer began his odyssey in hip-hop in 1983. Having been heavy into street life early in his journey, his style of music has always been influenced by the struggles of his people. Because hes so in tune with what really goes on in the streets, he uses his music to try to elevate the awareness of those that hear it. Not simply content to be another hood reporter, he uses the power in his words to challenge the listener to see things from different angles.
Riddlore? is an LA underground renaissance man, having mastered lyricism, production, DJ-ing and the unspoken art of gang-banging. Fortunately, he gave up the latter in 84 to put all of his incredible energy into the music, and twenty years later hes still at the cutting edge of the west coast sound. His track record speaks for itself, having worked with such luminaries as Aceyalone (All Balls Dont Bounce, Love and Hate), The Visionaries (Sophomore Jinx), Busdriver (Memoirs of the Elephant Man), The Good Brothers, Awol One, and Mikah 9.
