925ve is a Twin Cities based crew consisting of Prizm, Big Iggz, Tigre Cole, & Brando. I first became familiar wit the crew via our Fifth Element event, Last Of The Record Buyers, where the 925ve Producers consistently made quality showings with their beats. Then in the Summer of 2009, Prizm was a guest MC in our special Content Under Pressure #2 event. He was paired up with 4Shades Producer, GMO and had 3 hours to create a original song then perform it*.
Since then they've continued to make moves and some new fruits of their labor are on the horizon. They'll be dropping a new album at the end of the Summer titled "Leaks And Sneaks". However, first up is a the reissue of their previous joint "The Big Payback". The album has been repackaged and revamped; complete with new cover artwork, accompanying music videos, etc...
The album covers a range of vibes and moods while it fully expresses the crews passion for the culture, yet often light-hearted approach. Guest appearances by Mally and Franz Diego, as well as both Brandon Allday and Medium Zach of Big Quarters who appear on separate tracks.
