“The Hieroglyphics crew isn’t just a Bay Area hip-hop staple, it's the Bay Area hip-hop staple. From 1998’s game-changing 3rd Eye Vision, to a slew of elemental solo releases from Hiero’s MCs, few albums from the Hiero Imperium catalog resonate as soundly as Pep Love’s 2001 existential and uplifting Ascension. The sage-like Oakland rapper just put out the Dolla Daily EP, his second release in the last three years, and checked in with us on a call ahead of tonight's (Jan. 9) show at Elbo Room to talk about his continuing career, Hieroglyphics and the state of hip-hop in the Bay Area.”

Pep Love is featured in SF Weekly's new weekly Hip-hop column titled Moment of Truth. They talk about performing at San Francisco's Elbo Room, his new Dolla Daily EP, Hiero Day, and the current state of Hip-hop.

With Pep Love's intricate raps, indelible performances and hard-hitting beats in addition to Hieroglyphics albums Third Eye Vision and Full Circle, Pep has amassed a highly-respected, musical catalog through adaptation and consistency.
Growing up in a musically and socially informed family Pep has always nurtured a passion for the culture later chronicled in the lyrics of the song “Hip-Hop My Friend.” “I’ve been a dreamer always. Being an artist is trying to manifest those dreams." says Pep when remembering the journey that has led him to the destination in which we find him today. He connected with close friend and DJ/producer Jay-Biz while in high school, and formed The Shamen, a duo that would later gain recognition for witty raps and mosaic beats under the guise of The Prose. While the tandem would begin working with a collective rap crew known as Hieroglyphics, Pep performed incessantly as a fiercely dedicated Rap argonaut. “We were spending time with each other freestyling, making songs and involved in each other’s lives as artists and friends,” Pep recalls of his high school classmates, including A-Plus, Casual, and Opio. “The clique of rapping cats.”
