Revolutionary, passionate hip hop. Straight up. From www.foundationmovement.com... On February 27, 2003, the City of Boston declared the day “Foundation Day” The City of Boston not only honored the group for their musical talent, but also recognized Foundation Movement for their commitment to the community and for making positive changes in a city with a history of violence, racism, segregation, and political corruption. Foundation Movement members; Eroc, Optimus, and DJ El are a diverse group of young artists with origins from Puerto Rico, Liberia, and Guatemala, who all met in Boston and united to form the group. 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.

They’re committed to addressing issues of injustice and oppression, while also entertaining crowds with hot beats and relevant lyrics. Foundation Movement has performed at local clubs, open mics, college campuses, high schools, and rallies and protests, for crowds of 30 to 30,000. In the short time the group has been together, Foundation Movement has shared the same stage with KRS-One, Pharoahe Monch, Dead Prez, Michael Franti/Spearhead, Edo.g, Medusa, Soulfege, Lee Wilson, Supernatural, Billy Bragg, Akrobatik, Mr. LIF and Amiri Baraka. In August of 2003, Foundation Movement 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, Foundation Movement has also performed in Canada, Europe, Bahamas, South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya, Israel and Palestine.

You can catch the Foundation Movement regularly performing across the North East United States in Boston, Providence, New York City, Philadelphia and a city near you. Their debut album Foundation Movement’s “Greatest Hits” has received much critical acclaim. The Foundation Movement continues to be one of Boston’s top Hip-Hop acts, with songs crafted with creativity and balance, and backed by the polished production of the experienced, Omen, Upryz, DJ Liphted and their live band MoFire. With The Foundation already laid in Boston, this group is ready to build nation-wide. Read more on Last.fm.
