A force in the west coast hip hop
scene. Lyrically driven by the emcee
s Mad Dog and Prevail while DJ
Zodak produces some dark, heavy beats
. Swollen Members are the real deal.
Their first three releases were on Battle Axe, and their first full album was released on Jazz Fudge. Their release Balance on Jazz Fudge displayed guest appearances from Dilated Peoples, Divine Styler, and Everlast. One of the coolest aspects of Swollen Members remains the transition they made from starting in Vancouver to becoming a hip-hop name in the west coast movement.
