Locution Revolution are a tri-kulturalband/group made up of the dreadlock sporting,harmonica playing iD, the charasmatic Khiry Tafari,and the Deejay Budakron.All from different walks of life. In their short tenure together for a year and a half they hosted “Wildstyle Wednesdays” that saw DJ Budakron and DJ Shortop as the resident Deejays.Every Wednesday local talent and talent from abroad would come to perform,as well a spot for those to test themselves on the open mic. In 2008 came the brain child of iD.One day celebrating the elements of Hip Hop during International Hip Hop apperciation week.The concept spawned into a non-profit organization and the now annual “Hip Hop in the Park”,which showcases some of Edmonton’s and western Canada’s top talent. iD and Khiry also head their own independent record label,where they both have released solo albums.(Watch the Real Die 2007,Movements of Luv 2009) 2010 brought about the first full length from the group album called “WALK TALL”.A ten song collection of meldoy filled,inspiring raps,brain teasing concepts.The album peaked as high as #5 in Canada (earshot.com & chartattack.com)and stayed in the top 10 for six weeks.Further more the album hit #1 at home in Edmonton(CJSR) and Calgary(CJSW),staying in the top 10 in cities across Canada for 3 months straight.Not bad for some local boys from Edmonton.
