THe RUBBeR PeePLe
The Rubber Peeple are two skillful yet humble emcees out of Norfolk, VA (757), that also just happen to be a loving, Hip-Hop family. As 1/3 of the Jhunippuz Elite Poetry Organization (J.E.P.O.), Novakane Omega and King Pegee the Divine (Phatz) have been emceeing since the early 1990's. With J.E.P.O., they've performed up and down the east coast for the past 10 years. They pride themselves on their live performance.
The Rubber Peeple have a raw boom-bap sound, with powerful rhymes that are easy to digest. They draw inspiration from all musical genres. Everything from Reggae, to R & B, to Hip Hop. Their most prominent influences are KRS- One, Wu Tang Clan, Nas, Outkast, De La Soul, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, and Erykah Badu to name a few.
The Rubber Peeple aim to help restore credibility to the art of Emceeing, and to strike a balance between the true Hip-Hop connoisseur and the music industry of today. Through their music, they will expose the various aspects of Hip-Hop culture using peace, unity, love and having fun. Ultimately, they plan to change the game and shift the paradigm toward a new era in music…An era where music-lovers have a choice.
