“Both King I Divine & ScienZe have worked separately on their music since their first collaboration album released back in March 2012, but now they’re back together on their latest collective with relatable raps and some amazing production.”
Born and bred in Brooklyn, ScienZe is a multi-dimensional emcee who mixes and masters more than his vocabulary. With home grown inspiration from Hip Hop and influences gained from the culture of worldwide independent artistry, ScienZe began garnering faithful fans from his debut mixtape “The DOPEness, Vol.1” (2009). Ever since, ‘Hall Pass’ (2010) ‘When Skies Fall’ (2011) and ‘Ella’ (2013) are a few of his most celebrated albums, with eclectic visuals as his trademark.
King I Divine, a Queens native, is a name firstly synonymous with MPC’s, secondly with sounds of authentic head-bopping Hip Hop, original compositions and soulful samples. Whilst uploading beat tutorial videos and gaining a substantial, international following, he began producing in 2008. His music was fuelled by a fresh love for Hip Hop and his early production influences included RZA, DJ Premier and Pete Rock.
After two successful collaborations and supporter requests, ScienZe and King I Divine communally created the hard-hitting, hailed ‘Divine ScienZe’ hosted by 2DopeBoyz (Released March 13th 2012). Having performed together throughout the USA – California, Massachusetts, Ohio, New York, Washington DC- and the United Kingdom- London, Berlin, Paris- their success and fans reiterated the need for Part Two. April 8th 2014 saw the successor: ‘Divine Scienze 2: The Wake Up Album’ a 14-track compilation executing their renowned classic quality in musicality to lyrical variety. Both albums received endless praise via blogs, official Hip Hop websites, airplay and Bandcamp.
Further tours, videos, collaborations and power moves are en-route. This is the Wake Up.
