"Yo, numbnuts Op is RAW"! A member of the legendary crew Souls of Mischief (yep, those dudes that did '93 Til Infinity, among other underground classics) and Hieroglyphics, Opio is a Cali hip-hop OG. On 4/20, he dropped his latest project, Mark It Zero, for free online, featuring production from Unjust of Chosen Few, and last December, he and Souls Of Mischief dropped their long awaited album Montezuma's Revenge, featuring production from another hip-hop legend, Prince Paul. Em Dub got a chance to catch up with Opio over at Hiero Studios and talked about the story behind 93 Til Infinity, the meaning of his name, why Souls of Mischief decided to remain independent after being dropped by Jive, how Souls of Mischief and Hieroglyphics came together, and that's just part 1.
In part 2 Opio talks about his Big Lebowski inspired album with Unjust, Mark It Zero, and Souls Of Mischief' new album, Montezuma's Revenge.
