The Juggaknots were some of the early NY indie hiphop pioneers. Their first album was on Bobbitos Fondle Em label and they made a mark on the scene with their Clear Blue Skies song. Breeze, the lead vocalist of The Juggaknots, was the lead emcee in Prince Pauls A Prince Among Thieves conceptual album in 1999. Best hip-hop concept album ever? Yeah.
“A truly beautiful contribution to hiphop, and an overlooked contribution to American music.” – Slug, emcee of Atmosphere
“In the days of all this watered down hip hop…it’s really good to know that groups like the Juggaknots still make me feel like all ain’t lost in hip hop…please…don’t stop” – Dj Jazzy Jeff
