Accidents can happen, that’s what four Southern California MCs found out the summer of 2009 in the city limits of Riverside, CA. The Usual Suspects better known as THE SUSPECTS are made up of four MCS and one Dj each spawned out of, or from the culture and lifestyle of Hip Hop. From the classrooms and dirt playground of Emerson Elementry Suspect members Nappy Dreads (Antonio Taylor), thRIVe (Desmond Hernandez), Quincy 'The Kid' Jones (Quinn Cruz currently apart of C.D.C), and Qwality (Kaleb Pastores) have maintainted a friendship that finally spilled over from the routine rhyme cyphers and into the chambers and dungeons of a grimey garage studio. With time, the 4 MCs collaborated on several ideas and songs such as “King of the Town”, “Usual Suspects”, and “Deep Concentration” which eventually led to the forming of the intense underground rap machine of THE SUSPECTS. Together their styles inflicted raw and uncut in your face emceein. With a later addtion of Dj Jump JIggy, they moved forward as rap group that changed face of the I.E.’s Riverside Hip Hop Scene.
“THE SUSPECTS natural rapper/MCS… talent is accidental, dont get mad cuz we have it. SUSPECTS THE MOVEMENT “
When each Suspect was asked to give thought on this new idea of THE SUSPECTS they each responded as....
Qwality - "I mean lets face it i love hip hop and right now that’s what i do. I rap, and the suspects stay gettn suspect."
Nappy - "Weve all known each other since Elementry School, so that makes it easier to vibe off one another, I've been a loyal hip hop fan since birth, why not become apart of something i love."
thRIVe - "A raw to the bone in your face type of hip hop. When it’s all Said and done who are you going to point to... the suspects."
Quincy – “I mean I feel like shiit… Uhm, I feel like the suspsects came together like.. you know what I mean?.. 4 emcees on the same page in hip hop I mean… why not?
