Kooley High is comprised of six former N.C. State University students, who met on the campus bricks by way of hip hop. What started out as a student-run hip hop organization, known as H2O, soon turned into a fresh factory of beats, rhymes, and life.
The North Carolina group is made up of three emcees, Charlie Smarts, Tab-One, and Rapsody, two producers, Foolery and The Sinopsis, and a deejay, DJ Ill Digitz.
“Kooley High combines traditional hip-hop and R&B with a modern freestyle that traverses effortlessly between not only genres, but also generations. The result is a three-dimensional concoction that envelops listeners in a sound that is as smooth as The Fugees and Common, as passionate as Mary J. Blige and as intelligent as Hieroglyphics.” -URB Magazine
This eclectic group of emcees, producers, and deejay have exploded out of the Raleigh underground scene with their latest release, “David Thompson”.
Kooley worked with Grammy Award Winning 9th Wonder on their EP "The Summer Sessions" and opened lots of eyes to their movement.
Now based in Brooklyn the group hopes to take their music to the next level.
