The DemiGodz

by OSnapple on April 27, 2010

The Demi Godz Hip HopSo in my twilight last night, i had some lyrics stuck in my head by the DemiGodz.  This is one of the few albums out that every time I listen to it, I always chuckle.  If your unfimilar with the DemiGodz heres a few tid bits about them.

The Demigodz are an underground hip-hop supergroup based out of Connecticut, Boston, NYC, and L.A. Membership is somewhat nebulous and has changed several times throughout the years.

Roster:
Apathy, Celph Titled, Louis Logic, Open Mic, Esoteric, Rise, El-Fudge, Spin 4th, One Two, Motive and Styles of Beyond

The DJ’s
Chum the Skrilla Guerilla, Cheapshot & 7L
Originally founded 1990 by two Connecticut teens; Reflex and Open Mic (known then as Jedi). Calling themselves “The Nobility,” they were heavily influenced by the progressive hip-hop of the time, including Public Enemy and the Native Tongues Posse. The duo recorded countless demos in Reflex’s garage with the song lyrics focusing on science fiction and conspiracy theories.

In an attempt to be heard they hooked up with University of Connecticut radio DJ Cool C to showcase their songs over the local college airwaves. The buzz being created by the airtime resulted in numerous battles with local MCs which also increased the recognition of the increasingly-popular teens. It was also during this time that Open Mic renamed the group “The Demigodz,” taking inspiration from one of his own verses.
