Get To Know… Lower Life Form

By March 10, 2009 March 11th, 2009 Interviews, Music, Premiere, Real Life, RIK.TV

Today we get familiar with Lower Life Form, a hip hop band from Houston, TX and part of the Rappers I Know family.

Don’t get it twisted – this isn’t drunken-frat-party-white-boy-rap. (At least, not anymore.) My first introduction to Lower Life Form was watching Ish and PhD perform at some dark, underground spot in Houston. Ish was doing his thing on the 1’s and 2’s, and PhD was…. well, PhD. He was slightly inebriated, to say the least, and I was absolutely certain that he was going to fall off the stage at any moment. (He didn’t.)

Talking to them afterwards, PhD explains that he just rolls like that – living the high life and enjoying it all the way. That’s been the mantra of the crew ever since, and they’ve put together a collective of musicians who share the same balls-to-the-wall attitude that has cultivated a growing following. When you’re around them you get the sense that they don’t take themselves too seriously, and that’s a good thing. Stick around long enough, and they’ll probably become your favorite band.

  1. Ish says:

    I must say its been a long road to acceptance. Through the years we’ve dealt with more than our fare share of hate, and brushbacks….because of our color of skin and the music we chose to make. It only motivates us to be different by being ourselves. We are who we are, and its nice to finally be recognized for it. Love us, or hate us, we will always live low. Thanks to everyone in the RIK Fam (esp. Russ, D, and Frank) for your support, and I think you know by now that you have ours. Keep it rollin, and may we all share a nice stout drink in Austin next week.
