Souls of Mischief is a hip-hop group from Oakland, California that formed while its four members A-Plus, Tajai, Phesto and Opio were still in high school. Shortly after coming together, the quartet signed with Jive Records and released their smash debut 93 'til Infinity; the album was also labeled one of the Top 100 Rap albums by Source Magazine in 1998. Twenty years after its release, the record is still considered an anthem by Souls of Mischief fans, a pivotal moment in hip-hop history that drastically impacted the direction of the genre.
Over the last two decades, Souls of Mischief have released four additional studio albums: No Man's Land (1995), Focus (1999), Trilogy: Conflict, Climax, Resolution (2000) and Montezuma's Revenge (2009). In 1995, the four band members pulled their resources to begin work on a side project that later became known as the hip-hop collective Hieroglyphics. While Souls of Mischief have participated in each of Hieroglyphics' three studio albums, they have never forgotten the impact their debut album had on the hip-hop world.
In 2013, Souls of Mischief celebrated the 20 year anniversary of 93 'til Infinity with a deluxe re-issue and tour, including a stop at The Belly Up Tavern on August 13, 2013. Featuring 16 tracks from that night and clocking in at just over an hour of music; Live at the Belly Up captures a performance that proves that Souls of Mischief are every bit as vibrant as the day they stormed onto the scene; and their music and message stands the test of time.
