Biography

Division One (Ro Knew and Mic Logik) has been making music together for the better part of the last decade. Ro & Mic penned their first rhymes together as 11-year-olds in 1996, and it wasn’t long before they were in studios laying down vocals and trying to make their own mark in the highly talented Chicago hip hop scene. In 2002, Ro Knew left to attend college at the University of Illinois, in Champaign-Urbana. While earning his degree in economics, he also began to dominate the freestyle battle scene in this tough but underexposed town, and was taken under the wing of Chicago hip-hop elder statesman Akdamoe - formerly known as Prince Akeem - who had recorded and toured extensively with Public Enemy in the early 1990s. Meanwhile, Mic Logik was back in Chicago making sure that the group’s name was not forgotten - linking up with Kaz 1 of Gravel Records and forming alliances with a number of well-known artists and producers. Between 2003-2007, Mic and Ro recorded, wrote, and struggled to get an album done, starting from scratch many times due to strained friendships with former group members, financial hardships, and a competitive nature that kept the duo re-recording songs many times over. This process is what the album’s title, “The Drawing Board” refers to.
