2) Influenced in equal parts by old school soul, social activism and hardcore Hip-Hop, Black Elephant shares a unique vision for what hip-hop can be and how rich it can sound. Accompanied by a 5 piece instrumental ensemble they blend a rich love of Hip-Hop with a neo-soul aesthetic.
Released in August of 2002 Black Elephants debut CD Hiatus, acclaimed by critics and fans alike, was the beginning of an adventurous 24 months for the burgeoning group. Opening for De La Soul and Jurassic 5 was just the start of a year that included almost 100 shows. Performances at the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta, Universities throughout the Great Lakes, and a tour with national poet Jessica Care Moore only helped solidify their status as one of Milwaukee’s hardest working Hip-Hop bands.
After two years of hard work and nearly 4,000 albums sold, Black Elephant released their sophomore CD, Eat This Album on July 27th 2004.

    Can anyone explain how the similar artists section works? Cuz right now, the only artists on that list that BE has any similarities to is Mos, Talib and maybe Andre.
