Also known as Mauro (Still G) and Mirko (Slapy), the duo’s style of hip-hop is gritty and honest. Influenced by West Coast hip-hop legends 2Pac, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Warren G, and a range of soulful genres from Motown to jazz, their native Italian lyrics are a space for self-expression, detailing emotional moments and personal life experiences.
Both multi-skilled as producers, rappers, and songwriters, the close collaborators first met at a hip-hop concert in Milan and became fast friends based on their mutual love for the genre. They shared a similar upbringing and journey to music, with both artists spitting their first freestyles and writing their own rap lyrics as teens in the mid-'90s.
“We love to make music and create something extraordinary,” said the duo, when asked about their motivation to make music. “We’re loyal to hip-hop and R&B music that has good vibes, that’s real, that makes you feel good, that has something to say.”
