C.I. – Central Intelligence

Central Intelligence has set the stage, since forming in 1997, as the latest of up and coming hip-hop groups out of the Pacific Northwest. This group emerges from Seattle’s Central District known and respected for all the hard hitting and competitive underground hip-hop sounds and artists! Central Intelligence combines as the eclectic sounds of five emcees: Lowkey, Citizen Cain, Diopolis, SeaJay and Dialect. These emcees come with separate styles and musical backgrounds that bring an assorted Northwest flavor that the hip-hop world is yearning for! The year 2000 was a big year for the group, performing in numerous local shows, to laying down tracks with local producers such as Vitamin D, Rocaphella, Bean One, Poetry which led to the completion of their 2001 self titled debut album “Central Intelligence”.

While the respect demanding sound of agent Diopolis in “Protocol” brings a swift and robust sound that is capable of moving any hardcore hip-hop crowd. The continuous output of smooth lyrics provides unmatched flows from both agents Citizen Cain and LowKey. Meanwhile, agent SeaJay provides a heavy, abundant and steady fall of lyrical flows that proclaims him as the B-Boy lyricist of the group. And to bring it all together, agent Dialect’s explosive presence adds distinctive and matchless lyrical skills to provide an unstoppable sound for the group. Therefore the fusion of these elements creates the epicenter of Central Intelligence! Central Intelligence is without an equal or equivalent sound in the underground hip-hop game. Central Intelligence was committed to making music to represent the culture of hip hop as well as putting Seattle respectively back on the map. If you’re looking for an album that’s well balanced and brings a fresh and needed perspective back into hip-hop then look no further.
