Biography :
Watching The Procussions career is a lot like watching a movie where the underdog beats all obstacles and comes out twice as strong; proving that it's all about passion and integrity.

Hailing from Colorado Springs, Colorado, is it any wonder why The Procussions show leaves crowds completely blown away by their heart pounding performances and the smell of sweaty t-shirts as newly-won-over fans flood their merchandise booth? Of course not, The Procussions got something to prove! With their message of unconditional love, their undying hunger to knock down musical stereotypes, and their obvious conviction to be 100% themselves, the listener can clearly see as well as hear where The Procussions priorities lie.

Now living in Los Angeles and frequently traveling the world, Mr. J Medeiros, Rez, and Stro have made it a point to remain close to who they were when they started in 1998. They are a group from a small town with a big voice and an even bigger heart. This is conveyed seamlessly in their unique sound and intense focus on the "drum". Staying close to their name, The Procussions believe that the "percussion" is the heart of Hip Hop; its defining quality and driving force. There is no question after hearing and watching these three very different people come together with the same passion, that Hip Hop history is being made. The future for the "genre" is wide-open as groups like The Procussions re-write the rules.

Press Release (french) :
Second album du groupe hip hop de Los Angeles THE PROCUSSIONS.
Pour "5 Sparrows For 2 Cents" Medeiros, Rez et Stro continuent de prodiure un rap basé sur les percussions teinté de couleurs jazzy avec des featuring de poids comme Talib Kweli, Ahmad Jones (4th Avenue Jones) Afrobots Tara Ellis.
