While They Slept
Members of that L.A. Symphony crew... Self-sufficient and independent, they make the beats, they write they raps, they sing the songs that represent their West Los Angelino makeup. Growing up a mere block or two away from one another, the two find harmony being cut from a similar hip-hop cloth. Children of a Rap generation, commencing their own gab-gifts during their years in high school, the two steadied their pace as adolescent emcees on uneventful carnival side stages to much acclaimed successes aside their multifaceted posse - the L.A. Symph. Cookbook and Uno Mas implore themselves towards the truth, exposing their real lives when both exciting and bland on wax. Keeping the faith, the two hold back never on the track, upon their Christian roots, and by no means considering themselves 'gospel rappers', they profess, to simply: 'do what we do'. Allowing an unmasked self to emerge through their music. Body rock ethics whose perspectives pose no questioning. Two Latino brothers from West L.A. who know who and what they are. A rare duo of birds in a world convoluted with imagery and trickery abundant. Cookbook and Uno Mas, brothers that play no games, brother that simply make the music to play and play again.
