Biography

Oakland, San Francisco CA, United States

Souls of Mischief is a group from Oakland, CA, and part of the hip hop collective Hieroglyphics. Its members include A-Plus, Tajai, Phesto, and Opio. Souls of Mischief debuted in 1993 with their album 93 ‘til Infinity, released on Jive Records. They later released No Man’s Land (1995), Focus (1999), and Trilogy: Conflict, Climax, Resolution (2000).

History:

Oakland native Tajai began rhyming with future bandmate A-Plus at age 8, while both were in elementary school.[1] Tajai and Phesto met later in junior high school.[2] Tajai later introduced A-Plus and Phesto to the remaining Souls of Mischief member, Opio, and the group informally formed in high school before making their major-label debut on Jive Records with their well-received album 93 ‘til Infinity, in 1993.[2]

93 ’til Infinity is the group’s highest charting album to date (#17 Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums; #85 Billboard 200), and in January, 1998, was named one of the Top 100 Rap albums by The Source magazine.

The group stayed with Jive for one more album, 1995’s No Man’s Land, before being released from the label during that same year.
