Hieroglyphics is a hip hop crew from California that has been active since the nineties. The group consists of Del the Funkee Homosapien, Domino, Pep Love, Casual, Tajai, Opio, and A-Plus. The crew had been friends since high school and formed a group when Del got a record deal with the help of his cousin Ice Cube. The group released their first album in 1998, which was entitled “Third Eye Vision”. They became a huge success in California and eventually became well known around the country. Nearly every member of the crew has released their own albums. After leaving their previous labels the crew formed Hieroglyphics Imperium Records, which has signed additional artists since its formation. The crew has recently been on tour for their new album “Full Circle” and is releasing a dvd of the tour.

“Capture the cultured pearls, jewels, and gems
It's a treasure hunt to stimulate your medulla stem
The furthest reaches are within your clutches
Concrete covered countries to the most birded regions
Virgin territories, those exposed to man made woes
They know them Hieros” – Hieroglyphics “Soweto”
