The High & Mighty's momentary affiliation with Rawkus Entertainment in 1999 brought them national acclaim, and the duo returned to the underground thereafter and used the newfound clout to promote their Eastern Conference label.
Comprised of Mr. Eon (Eric Meltzer) and DJ Mighty Mi (Milo Berger), the High & Mighty came together in the mid-'90s and decided to form their own label, Eastern Conference. After a few singles, the duo began to earn notice, particularly for the "Open Mic Night" b/w "The Meaning" release in 1997. A year later came another big release, "B-Boy Document" (1998), this one featuring several prominent underground figures: El-P, Mike Zoot, and Mos Def. By this point Rawkus had become very interested in the High & Mighty and released their debut full-length, Home Field Advantage (1999), and a re-working of "B-Boy Document" featuring Mos Def and Mad Skillz (""B-Boy Document '99") as well. Following the well-received album, the High & Mighty returned to the underground and brought many new fans with them. In subsequent years, the duo focused on its label (compiling a number of Eastern Conference All-Stars compilations) and returned with their second album, Air Force 1, in 2002. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
