The Demigodz Lyrics Follow
Demigodz are a hip hop collective founded by Connecticut rappers Open Mic and Reflex. The group was originally named "The Nobility" but Open Mic renamed the group "The Demigodz" with inspiration from one of his own verses. The group has changed several times through the years. As of 2012, the group consists of; Apathy, Celph Titled, Ryu, Esoteric, Motive, & Blacastan.
The group was originally formed in 1990 by Connecticut emcees Open Mic and Reflex. Apathy joined the group after hearing a demo on the University of Connecticut radio station 91.7. The group expanded during the 1990s to include a number of other members, and they took frequent outings to New York City in order to expose themselves to the East Coast hip hop scene. In the late 90's, Apathy shifted his focus towards developing his solo career, but the group re-formed in 2000 with Celph Titled, Rise, Open Mic, One-Two, L-Fudge, Louis Logic, and 7L and Esoteric, as well as producer Chum the Skrilla Guerilla. After touring extensively in Europe, the group released the EP "The Godz Must Be Crazy" in 2002.
In 2004, a number of members left the group, leaving only Apathy, Celph Titled, and 7L and Esoteric. New members were subsequently added, including Motive, Blacastan, and Ryu from Styles of Beyond. In 2007, they released the LP "The Godz Must Be Crazier."
In March 2013, Demigodz released their second full-length album, Killmatic, which features guest appearances from Scoop DeVille and R.A. the Rugged Man and production from DJ Premier. After performing as a group for the first time with all members present in November 2012 in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Apathy and Celph Titled embarked on a tour to promote the new album including venues in the U.S. and Australia. The album received critical acclaim for its adherence to the lyricism and aesthetic of golden age hip hop.
