The embodiment of the early 21st century hip–hop movement, Jedi Mind Tricks, hit Melbourne on Friday 9th December at Billboard.
The group comprises Philadelphia’s DJ Kwestion, Vinnie Paz and Jus Allah from New Jersey; often alongside artists such as Percee P, GZA, Ill Bill in various collaborations in their Army of the Pharoahs. Jedi Mind Tricks are touring Australia for the first time ever, to promote their latest Violence Begets Violence release. The group formed in 1996; with The Psycho–Social EP, whilst hitting rap battles and gigs on the U.S. East Coast. But they did not achieve widespread success until Jus Allah returned to the group (after quitting in 1999), to record their 2006 hit The Rebuilding, and 2008 album A History of Violence (a must–have for any hip–hop enthusiast). This is one show you do not want to miss, so as usual you‘d best be advised to buy a fucken ticket!
