"For those of you unfamiliar with the principal of Ramadan, it's essentially an annual observance of Islam where Muslims worldwide have to fast daily for an entire month between dawn and sunset. It's already a sacrifice most of us would never be willing to make, but imagine having the dedication to stick with it, even amidst a 50-date rap tour? That's what our homie Tajai of Souls of Mischief is currently dealing with, smack-dab in the middle of their 20th anniversary Still Infinity Tour, wrapping August 25."

 - Frank 151

"Overall, I have felt the entire gamut of emotions during this fast, often at extreme levels. I have seen the senseless destruction of property in my home city through social media and news, and that saddens me. I have also seen the positive, peaceful protests throughout the nation and that gives me hope that dialogue on the poor state of race relations in America is being sparked. Somewhere between these extremes I hope that we all are able to sit back, reflect, and see the beauty of life and how we all can nurture and develop TOGETHER. Hip Hop was created in that spirit. "

Younge is the up-and-coming producer who specializes in delivering cinematic narratives through live instrumentation, breathing new life into old sounds. " - Ezra Marcus (VICE)

Emcee Tajai dishes on the Oaklanders' successes.

"Tajai, along with fellow Souls of Mischief emcees A-Plus, Opio and Phesto, got a taste of success early. Tajai was just 18 in 1993 when the group’s debut album “93 ’Til Infinity” dropped.  Early is relative, however; by that time, Tajai had been rapping with A-Plus for a decade.

Now, the Oakland natives — who are also part of the hip-hop collective Hieroglyphics — are embarking on a tour celebrating their quintessential album.

“In hindsight, it’s weird that we’re still eating off this,” Tajai said. “We were thinking we were going to be the best thing since sliced bread, so in that sense we failed, but…”

But people still love “93 ’Til Infinity,” especially its title track. The album remains timeless due to its honesty — Souls members never were anything but themselves, not succumbing to the will of what was then a rapidly developing hip-hop mainstream."

The Minnesota Daily wrote a great article on the Souls of Mischief Still Infinity Tour - including interview with Tajai (Hieroglyphics / Souls of Mischief). Read the entire article at the link below, written by Spencer Doar.
