Endangered ElementsHeightz Of Elevation EP
Through Gravity's brother, a DJ on CKLN called Tony Tone, the crew started to get their music heard on Canadian college radio. They would frequently hit up CKLN 88.1 FM, CHRY 105.5 FM and CIUT 89.5 FM and met up with on-air personalities like Mastermind, Qwame, Pauly Lopez, Ron Nelson, John Bronski, DJ Power and DJX to drop live freestyles on their shows .College radio became a significant outlet for the boys. Those radio connections led to hooking up with Michael Williams and Master T who were involved with Rap City on Much Music in Canada. After the radio exposure, a number of television appearances followed and from there they started to perform, mostly in Toronto and the neighbouring US States. They appeared alongside other T-Dot acts as well as successful 90's Hip Hop stalwarts like The Roots, Jeru the Damaja, Dj Premier, Gangstarr, Redman, Sadat X and Leaders of the New School.They had a few (handful of) promo TP's made for DJ friends and college radio cats and then released a packaged cassette EP which sold out instantly. Then things started gettin' rude. Their success was attracting some undesired, external forces and the cats went through some unsavoury events which would eventually bring about the collapse of the project. The post-94 material was stolen when the studio was broken into and there was some real-deal violence as well. Those were some rough years for all the members of the group and there are some actual serious battle scars to go with it...
But, on a more positive tip, what we do have for your listening pleasure is some crazy dope 90's true-school joints. This is one of the sickest crews never to blow up out of the scene and we're very proud to present this project on Chopped Herring Records. We have 3 vocal tracks and 2 interludes from the 1992 "Natural Heights" EP, 3 vocal tracks and 3 interludes from the 1993 "Mindz of Elevation" EP and one previously unreleased track entitled "Whatz the Deal".
