How The Grouch Stole Christmas Tour

The Grouch is one of the founding members of the internationally infamous crew, The Living Legends. Humbly beginning on a 4-track recorder nearly 15 years ago, The Grouch has steadily grown into one of the prominent figures within the independent hip hop scene. Known for captivating his listeners with his down to earth and truthfully poignant raps and production, The Grouch has successfully released over nine solo projects making this year's, "Three Eyes Off The Time" his tenth solo release. In addition to his solo career, The Grouch has played an integral part in building the Living Legends brand, sound, and image. A consummate workaholic, The Grouch also has numerous groups outside of his solo career and LL collective, most notably: The Grouch & Eligh, Zion I & The Grouch, and The CMA with Living Legends crewmate, Luckyiam.

Cousin of renowned gangster rapper Ice Cube, Del tha Funky Homosapien (real name Teren Delvon Jones) was born in Oakland, California on August 12, 1972, and got his start with Ice Cube's backing band, Da Lench Mob. But Del's rap isn't as grim or violent as Ice Cube's is; in fact, he's been known to include something in his music that's far too uncommon in most rap: humor. Signed to Elektra/Asylum, Del's debut release, I Wish My Brother George Was Here, was issued in 1991 and produced by Cube and, like most rap at the time, featured numerous samples of Parliament/Funkadelic classics from the '70s. Del's follow-up, 1994's No Need for Alarm, was a departure musically, as Ice Cube was no longer in the production seat and the P-Funk sounds were dropped in favor of a more sophisticated, almost jazzy sound. Despite his noble experimentation, Del's sophomore effort failed commercially, and it would take four years for the rapper to plot his next move and issue another recording.

Having left Elektra, Del aligned himself closely with some fellow rapper friends, Casual and Souls of Mischief, and issued his third release overall, 1998's Future Development, for the same label as his friends, Hieroglyphics Records. An all-new Del solo release, Both Sides of the Brain, was released in 2000, along with a self-titled debut release by a side project, Deltron 3030, which saw Del join forces with both the Automator and Kid Koala. It took eight years for the rapper's next solo full-length to come out, but in the interim Del kept himself busy with guest appearances, including on the Damon Albarn project Gorillaz's self-titled debut, adding his recognizable vocals to the hit "Clint Eastwood," a song that he also began incorporating in his live sets. In 2007 it was announced that the MC had been signed to Def Jux, which released the long-awaited (and very un-Def Jux-like) Eleventh Hour in March of 2008. A year later he teamed with Artifacts member Tame One and production team Parallel Thought for the collaboration album Parallel Uni-Verses. The three-disc Golden Era followed in 2011. It featured one new album along with two albums that had been previously released in digital-only format. In 2012 Del joined forces once more with innovative New Jeresey beatmakers Parallel Thought for the Attractive Sin full length. The album melded Del's west coast style with Parallel Thought's rugged east coast production.
