Shadz of Lingo
Shadz of Lingo MCs Lingo and Kolorado and DJ Rocco met in 1986 at a Richmond, VA, high school. They first worked together as rappers, but formed a commercial production company in 1988. The four moved to Atlanta in 1991 and began to record. Combining old-school posturing with new-breed styles (Cypress Hill, dancehall, jazz-rap), their debut album was released in 1994.
