Chapter 13 is the first page of a new chapter in the hip-hop movement. It all began in the late fall of 2001, with 2 up and coming young emcees, Zero Basement and Kory Calico, showing off their talents and hunger at various venues in the local Atlanta battle scene, where they are each accomplished veterans. Shortly after seeing one another perform at various open mic's the two decided to collaborate and approached Kno from Cunninlynguists and the live band Heavy Mojo to record several songs. They were looking to merely make a few tracks for the fun of it, but little did they know they would produce such gems as "Rockstars", featured on the Sloppy Seconds compilation (distributed by freshchest) executive produced by Kno, and "Gold Chains", a collaboration with live band Heavy Mojo. By this time it seemed official that the Atlanta underground had found its newest rising stars, with multiple performances under their belts and the duo gaining praise from the local hip hop community, all that was needed now was a title to fit them. so what would you call 2 poor and struggling youths trying to make a name for themselves in a time where the only hip hop music being pushed on the public consisted of descriptions of flashy jewelry,selling drugs and/or cars with enormous rims? Chapter 13 seemed to say it all against the hypocrisy or hiphop-crisy portrayed by pop rappers and the media. They speak best to the ever-growing percentage of people unable to afford the corporate american dream and live a storybook lifestyle. with a fresh blend of socially conscious lyrics involving clever word play and intricate rhyme schemes with original boom bap production, Chapter 13 will be the next big phenomena to sweep this country if not the world with a message most are too timid to express.
