"Silence is the Voice of Complicity"
The Foundation members, Eroc, Optimus, and DJ Flip, are a diverse group of young artists with origins from Puerto Rico, Liberia and the Philippines, who met in Boston and united to form the group in 2001. This cultural fusion, as well as their experiences growing up in Boston, has influenced The Foundation's music. Not another rap group with watered down lyrics and
messages of misogyny and materialism, theyíre committed to addressing issues of injustice and oppression, while also entertaining crowds with hot beats and relevant lyrics.
The Foundation has performed at local clubs, open mics, college campuses, high schools, and rallies and protests, for crowds of 30 to 30,000. The
Foundation has shared the same stage with KRS-One, Pharoahe Monch, Dead Prez, Michael Franti/ Spearhead, EDO G, Medusa, Supernatural, Billy Bragg, Akrobatik, Mr. LIF and Amiri Baraka. In August of 2003, The Foundation was the only international group invited to perform with the Cuban Hip-Hop All-stars at the closing of the 9th Annual Hip-Hop Festival and Conference in Cuba for a crowd of over 20,000. Internationally The Foundation has also performed in Canada, England, France, Cuba, Bahamas, South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Israel and Palestine. And have performed across the Northeast United States in New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Providence, and many more.
