ELEC­TRIC BRIX­TON, LON­DON

Hip-hop duo Johnny “Olu O. Fann” Venus and Doc­tur “Eian Undrai Park­er” Dot formed in 2009 in Atlanta, Geor­gia, and became known as EarthGang. They grew up on the city’s South­side, an area also home to Out­Kast and Future. After meet­ing in high school, they con­tin­ued to make music togeth­er, influ­enced by a diverse range of artists like Curtis May­field, T-Pain, Ms. Lauryn Hill, and Gil Scott-Her­on. They began work­ing on their first EP while at Hamp­ton Uni­ver­sity in Vir­ginia, and The Bet­ter Party was released in 2010. The fol­low­ing year they self-released two full-length albums, Mad Men and Good News. EarthGang began to tour, and in early 2013 they per­formed at the A3C Fest­ival in Atlanta. Later that same year they made their label debut with Shal­low Graves for Toys, and the record reached num­ber 11 on Billboard’s Emer­ging Artists chart. The duo con­tin­ued to raise their pro­file tour­ing North Amer­ica, includ­ing sets at SXSW. 2015 saw the release of Strays with Rabies, which included guest spots from J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League and DJ Khalil. Although nat­ur­ally sus­pi­cious of record labels, and still har­bour­ing a D.I.Y. men­tal­ity, Earthgang signed to J. Cole’s for their fol­low­ing album.
