Current members: Timothy Gregory
Founded in: 1999
Style: complex hip-hop
Influenced by: A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Madlib, Pete Rock, Little Brother
Notable: Gregory is currently working two side projects: one with fellow rapper Ezechiel "EQ" Quiroz named E.T. and another with EQ and Chantee "Mzery" Williams called Unison Collective.
Quotable: Gregory on the choice of name E.T.: "We feel like we're aliens amongst the hip-hop realm here because not too many people around here rhyme about the same things we do. We kind of feel alienated."
