Known for championing pivotal west coast hip-hop groups Freestyle Fellowship, and Haiku D'Etat, Myka 9 champions his often-imitated, never-duplicated lyrical style around the world. He is known for his rapid-fire, jazz-influenced, melodic rapping, and often incorporates singing and occasional scatting into his songs.
"My rhymes take the direction of a jazz trumpet or sax solo, like Miles or Trane, if I was to rhyme in the same meter as those notes . . . that's my concept."
In 1993, the "Fellowship" (signed then to Island Records label 4th & B'Way) released their second album, "Innercity Griots", which is still considered to be a major landmark in L.A. hip hop.
Now, his 17th album and 6th solo album "Mykology" is available on CD, with the cover art by Mear One.
