The Seattle-based crew Source of Labor have been an integral part of the overlooked Pacific Northwest hip-hop scene since 1992. They have opened for a diverse range of acts, including [a=Gil Scott-Heron], [a=Goodie Mob], [a=Nas], [a=De la Soul], [a=Pharcyde, The], and [a=Ice Cube]

SoL has gained their share of underground respect. The group was formed by rapper [a=Wordsayer] along with producers [a=Negus 1] and [a=Vitamin D]. Wordsayer and Negus 1 are brothers born in Seattle but raised in Atlanta; they returned to the Northwest in the early '90s and founded the group. They also started up a label, Jasiri Media Group, and are heavily involved in the community (Wordsayer as a creative writing teacher at Seattle's Franklin High School, Negus 1 as the director of an after-school program). The trio began concentrating on Source of Labor recordings by the turn of the millennium, issuing the Full Circle EP as well as their debut full-length, Stolen Lives.
