Blue Scholars have built a hip-hop empire in the Pacific northwest. The classic formula of one DJ and one MC, their resume is well established and only growing, having opened for the likes of Kanye West, De La Soul, Hieroglyphics and Immortal Technique, and participated in the Rock the Bells hip-hop festival. The group combines socially conscious lyrics with funky, funky, funky beats.
