They started out as two regular kids, unknowingly caught in the grasp of pop culture. As time set in, Tenacity and S.A. came to a realization. The plastic, made-for-TV image and the horrible monotony of pop music are nothing less than an Orwell-esque brainwashing effort aimed at flooding minds with images of conformity. They subsequently broke free from the chains of trend. Hungry and determined to bring about change, they searched for others like them. Their search was successful and the Abolitionists was founded. Its crosshairs were immediately locked upon modern pop culture; that vast, faceless entity, now more encompassing than ever, which tries to keep creativity and original ideas locked in shackles. After teaming up with Iggy Ignotius (whose electro-fied take on hip-hop production helps sets the duo apart from their contemporaries), the three spent months of hermit-like preparation and intensive training. Tenacity and S.A have now unleashed their skills, and set out to free the minds of those who are still capable of seeing. Using a delivery packed with witty punch lines, humorous double meanings and creative rhythmic patterns, they rip through all of the wack emcees who cloud the scene with hip-hop clichés and mainstream propaganda. BLUNT RAPS is here to clear the path of the weak-minded and those blinded by an image. It is the first chapter to the changing of hip-hop as you know it.
