Indie Hip-Hop: 7L & Esoteric

7L & Esoteric formed in 1992 when Esoteric, the emcee of the group, deejayed a Hip Hop show at a college radio station north of Boston. 7L, a DJ / producer who listened to the show contacted Esoteric in interest of collaborating. Through the duo’s understanding of the often under-appreciated golden age of Hip Hop (1985-89), a bond was formed. 7L and Esoteric have been in the indie hip-hop scene for over ten years. They are dropping their new record "A New Dope" on June 27th . Their influences trace back to the "golden age" of hip-hop and they have collaborated with such artists such as Marley Marl, Inspectah Deck from the Wu-Tang Clan, and even the legendary Kool Keith on this record.
