Album Notes
On April 3rd, 2004, a whole became greater than the sum of its parts. Simple, a three-piece instrumental funk/rock jam band, were playing a show at their old stomping ground, the now-defunct Tokio Ballroom in Olde City, Philadelphia. Supreem, a solo MC, got up to freestyle with the band as they went into one of their tunes. Despite being completely improvised, the room exploded. This was the point of no return for both parties.

It's not that hip-hop hasn't been blended with rock before. It's just that it hasn't been done the way Simple and Supreem do it. This isn't rap-metal, á la ultra-aggro Limp Bizkit. On the other hand, this isn't a hip-hop band the likes of the Roots. Simple and Supreem are a funk/rock jam band that just so happens to have an incredible MC as its front man. The music is raw, organic, loud, and funky as hell. In one night, you'll hear influences ranging from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Busta Rhymes to Stevie Ray Vaughn.

These influences, coupled with a fun, intense live show, have gotten a lot of attention. They've toured up and down the East Coast, playing with HR of the legendary Bad Brains. They've played on the Warped Tour 2005. They have a full-length album (DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO), two music videos, plenty of gigs under their belt, and work ethic for days. Perhaps bassist Mike Oxman describes the band best when he says, "Supreem rhymes to our rock, Simple rocks to his rhyme, and somewhere in between, everybody shakes their ass."

Classic Rock/Rap
I love the energy and musicianship that was put into this project. It's good to see "GOOD MUSIC" emerging itself to the forefront again. I'll see you guys at The Grammy's for Best Alternative Rap Album!!!!!

You Guys Rock
sounds great guys. Lovin the beats, keep it up. hope to see you guys live again sometime soon. maybe the TLA.

Alex Smith

funky-dance inducing hip hop
Funky bass, pounding drums, and plenty of charisma from MC Supreem are all characteristic of S&S's "DO WHAT U GOTTA DO." Wah-wah, catchy lyrics, will make people ask "who is this?" and "how are they so bad-ass?" when you spin it at your next party. beware- S&S make cause dancing to occur anywhere!
