The Forefathers have just thrown a musical and lyrical life preserver into Hip Hop and Rap. This four man group has a great deal of respect for heritage, and the creators of the past musical and lyrical generations, and have fused their funk and style, to a Hip Hop sound, which will take us to the next Millennium. Quoting Ganz on one of the members of the group "the secret to our music is in the hooks and the crooks, the delivery , and the art, which we mastered called 'movies for the mind, lyrics and stories, that you can see as well as hear.' " Not preachy, yet informative, the Forefathers strike the social and political strife in our community today.
The Forefathers consist of Ganz, Genna, Billy Bear, and Sage, whom write and produce their own material. It seems that destiny has brought these guys together. Although all were born and raised in the New York City area, they did not meet until they all moved to Atlanta, Ga., where Ganz, and Billy Bear met, and began their musical odyssey, on that road they met Genna, and Sage at the open mic shows, and quickly gained respect for each others talents. Thus, the journey took hold, and they formed the Forefathers.
