  • Portable Payback, Artists

    Slick talk, fly walk, let the legend begin. So starts the story of Portable Payback. Comprised of Soup and Marc 7 formerly of the world famous hip hop group Jurassic 5. The two connected musically on the recording of of J5?s Power In Numbers album on the song “High Fidelity”, the song really opened the door for us to say to ourselves, “Hey we have a great vibe as a duo” say’s Marc 7. Musically we have no limits as Portable Payback and are free to go into and explore all types of beats and concepts as well as lyrical content” say’s Soup. ” I felt at times with J5 we were pigeon held to be these perfect people and couldn’t talk about certain things or even curse for that matter” say’s Marc 7. With Portable Payback the sky’s the limit for the duo and their soon to be released full length album will prove their point. Soup got his first taste of the music business with the group Rebels Of Rhythm alongside high school friends Akil and Afrika. Marc 7 got his start with the group Unity Committee alongside Cut Chemist and DJ Marv Ski. The two groups met in 1993 while frequenting The Good Life Cafe. After many suggestions that Unity Committee and Rebels Of Rhythm work together, they finally connected and created the now classic song Unified Rebelution which would birth the group Jurassic 5. The independently released Gold J5 EP secured them a deal with Interscope records as well as Gold and Silver status overseas. The certified Gold Quality Control album in 2002 stamped their arrival to the industry. Power In Number in 2004 made a huge impact as well as their final album Feedback. Soup and Marc 7 have toured the world several times over performing at the worlds most important and exciting music festivals – Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza 2003, Australia’s Big Day Out, The UK’s Reading and Leeds Festival, and Japan’s Summer Sonic, just to name a few. They’ve shared the stage with musics greats including – A Tribe Called Quest, Outkast, Lauryn Hill, Cee-Lo, The Roots, Green Day, Janes Addiction, Dave Matthews Band, Sum 41, and were the only Rap group to perform on the hugely successful Vote For Change Tour with Bruce Springsteen. Armed with immense talent and a arsenal of quality material these two globetrotting MC’s are ready to yet again tour the world and show what “PORTABLE PAYBACK” is all about.
