The Living Legends crew is a family of independent hip hop creators. From primary earth bases in Los Angeles and Oakland, the Legends extend worldwide and beyond.

It all started with Sunspot Jonz and Luckyiam.PSC, who laid claim to the name of Mystik Journeymen in the early 1990s. By '94 they were locally legendary for throwing Underground Survivors shows, houseparty style, at their loft 4001 San Leandro Street in East Oakland. That's where the Grouch hooked up with the Journeymen in 1995, just before they took off on the renowned first European tour.

Meanwhile, in Midcity LA, 3 Melancholy Gypsys (Murs, Scarub & Eligh) were part of the almost mythic Log Cabin crew going back to 1993. Log Cabin broke up and the Gypsys wandered separately. As it turned out, the 3 crossed paths again in the Bay Area and became Living Legends.

Aesop came to Oakland from Fresno, Arata from Osaka, and Bicasso from various points, East, West and elsewhere.

In 1999 the Legends shifted their center of gravity to Los Angeles, but their presence will never be diminished in Oakland and the Bay. You know it makes no difference where they stay cuz the universe revolves around them anyway they'll appear in your sector soon. From '95 into the 3rd millennium, the Journeymen and the Legends have rocked Europe, Japan, Australia and Canada numerous times, plus they've toured the USA, north and south, East Coast, West Coast and beyond to Hawaii.
