Alternate Reality (Dumi RIGHT and Cadence) proudly presents: Legitimate Raw
Upon first hearing about the crew Alternate Reality, one might assume that they are a new to the scene. That is far from the case however. While the group may be a new construct, both the members are seasoned purveyors of hip hop with substance.
Dumi RIGHT was introduced to audiences in the early 90′s as a member of Zimbabwe Legit – the pioneering crew widely regarded as the first African hip hop group to gain international recognition. At the same time, Cadence was making a name for himself as an MC, DJ and producer; as one half of the highly respected indie hip hop duo Raw Produce, and then later as a solo artist. Their paths converged on a number of occasions over the course of the last decade, with collaborations on various projects that most notably include: Zimbabwe Legit – House of Stone, Cadence – Creative Commerce and O.U.O – of unknown origin.
