West Coast Legends Return: Living Legends Roll Out "The Gathering"

A Snippet of History for the Sleepers:
It all started with Sunspot Jonz and Luckyiam of Mystik Journeymen in the early 1990's. By '94 they already had a huge following from throwing Underground Survivors shows, house party style at their loft in East Oakland. That's where the Grouch hooked up with the Journeymen in 1995, just before they took off on their first European tour. Around the same time in Los Angeles the Log Cabin Crew which consisted of several rappers including the 3 Melancholy Gypsys (Scarub, MURS and Eligh.) The Log Cabin Crew later broke up and the Gypsys formed of the three remaining members, who then crossed paths with the Mystik Journeymen to form Living Legends (Sunspot Jonz, Luckyiam, Scarab, Murs, Grouch, Eligh, Bicasso, Arata, & Aesop Fables). Over the years, the Journeymen and the Legends have rocked Europe, Japan, Australia, Canada, and the USA numerous times. I personally caught them up in North Florida some years back and they killed it, body bagged the stage and doused it with embalming fluid. Anyways, in the years since the Legends have continued releasing solo and crew projects and now have a catalog of over 50 full-length albums, no shit!

Pulling yet another voltron-esq manuever, the Legends return with an extremely dope record, "The Gathering". Peep one of the singles and then hit up the site, :

How bout we unleash an entire fucking array of West Coast bangers on these fools!
