Becoming concerned with the direction rap music seems to be going since it’s arguably most innovative period in the early 90’s, lyricists Tur-Bo, Y.K.C., the 23rd Stallion, and beatmaker, AL-G decided to form 857 in order to provide an alternative to the current mainstream trends and bring back the originality and creativity, they believe is now missing from hip-hop. Their music can be described as a combination between old school philosophy merged with new school style and rhyme scheme. Creatively, they are fully capable of delivering many different kinds of songs across a wide variety of topics, whether they’re gettin’ your feet jumpin' at the party, hittin’ you with deep philosophy, or simply just providing entertainment. Overall, the witty, creative, lyrical talents possessed by Tur-Bo, YKC. and the 23rd Stallion combined with the insane instrumentals provided by the multi-talented methodical master mastermind, AL-G, gives 857 the ability to demonstrate a style, vibe, and energy

Bio

Becoming displeased and concerned with this direction rap music seems to be going since it’s arguably most innovative period in the early 90’s, lyricists Tur-Bo, Y.K.C., the 23rd Stallion, and beatmaker, AL-G decided to form 857 in order to provide an alternative to the current mainstream sound and bring back the vibe that they believe is now missing from hip-hop. Unlike the average rap group, 857 is far from one dimensional and their songs contain much more substance. They are fully capable of delivering many different kinds of songs across a wide variety of topics, whether they’re gettin’ your feet jumpin' at the party, hittin’ you with deep philosophy, or simply just providing entertainment. What’s interesting about the group is that the lyricists Tur-Bo, Y.K.C. and the 23rd Stallion sound completely distinctive in style and voice, and individually contribute something different to the overall vibe of the music. Collectively combined with the insane instrumentals provided by the multi-talented methodical mastermind, AL-G, 857 demonstrates a style and vibe that’s rarely found in today’s hip-hop industry.
