The Versifiers met in Long Beach in 2000. As 90’s golden era hip-hop heads who all shared a passion for music, the friends got into creating music right when they met at the age of 18.
The crew and their hombres would cypher, write together, and annoy people at parties who didn’t like hip-hop. The trio have always had a love for the art and as they grew up they continued to work on their craft and create together. Their songs represent who they are as people. They are honest, genuine, and meant to speak to all ears who take time to listen.
They make art for the “everyman,” the folks who work hard at what they love and are good to their families and friends. While they do the majority of their shows in the Bay Area, The Versifiers also have a circle of folks in L.A. and make sure to rep the whole state. They’re Cali locals but have an appreciation for art and do their best to maintain a worldly view.
Influences range from Mos Def to Miles Davis. From Hiero and Hobo Junction to The Devil Makes Three and Alabama Shakes. They refuse to be defined by preconceived confines of what others feel hip hop should be. That is the beauty of art. We shape it as we see fit.
The crew is made up of 3 emcees Betarock, dBL., and Droh. They usually play with their badass D.J. SolWright. They also play frequently with Norman English, a fantastic saxophone player and the San Francisco band The Junk Show.
