As a teen, Opio hooked up with local rappers Tajai and A-Plus, whom he met through Casual, another emcee who was Opio’s classmate and neighbor. The three instantly clicked and began recording together, soon adding fourth emcee Phesto Dee, to form the group Souls of Mischief. Together with Del the Funky Homosapien, Casual, Domino, and Pep Love, the legendary crew Hieroglyphics was born.
Opio has always done double duty for Hiero as both an emcee and producer. Opio’s recent production credits include the track “Naked Fonk” from Del’s recent 11th Hour. Opio’s first solo effort, 2005’s Triangulation Station, moved over 20,000 units.
Vulture’s Wisdom, Volume 1 is the first chapter of a forthcoming trilogy from Opio. Vulture’s Wisdom, Volume 2 features the single “Bill Collectors” & will be hitting store shelves & iTunes soon. All three Vulture’s Wisdom releases are produced by The Architect.
