Mayfair District is an alternative hip-hop duo who take great pride in their innovative, poetic, intelligent music. The duo are open minded free thinkers who strive to connect to the listener as well as offer a new perspective on many topics.
Bio: Mayfair District is an alternative hip-hop duo comprised of two brothers, HEF-Apes and Uncle TuTu. These brothers were born and raised in the city of Fresno, California, located in the Central San Joaquin Valley. The sons of a singer/songwriter father who also played the drums and guitar, this duo has been influenced by music since their time in the womb. As children, the neighborhood in which they lived, the Mayfair District, slowly evolved from a working middle class area to a gang and drug infested addition to Fresno's ‘eastside'. Engulfed by an unfamiliar world, these boys turned to music and poetry as their therapy and solace.
Because of the huge diversity of experiences in their life, there is no specific group or genre that you can place Mayfair District in. Their stories and poems are so broad as to touch all groups, with bounderies not being an option in their mind.
Press Release: Never before has Hip-hop seen a duo quite like the boys from the Mayfair District. This distinct pair of linguistic phenoms are so far detached from the repetitive haze that Hip-Hop has become, some would say that they embody their own genre. With intellectual yet gritty lyrics, and beyond ridiculous cadence and flows, these two brothers hailing from California's Central Valley, blow the minds of music lovers world-wide. The world of Hip-Hop has been waiting for a fresh breath of life into a slowly dying corpse which has become more than predictable. The innovation and creativity that HEF Apes and Uncle TuTu display, is not only bringing Hip-Hop back to life, but causing it to levitate to another level. In a time when music has become more about selling records than creating art, Mayfair District rises above and beyond by creating music out of love, which shows every time they produce a beat or open their mouth on a track. The District's distinct rhythmic/melodic beats enhanced by their cutting-edge delivery will have the listener hooked. These poets utilize their stage to educate their listeners on topics not commonly discussed by everyday cookie-cutter rappers. If your ready for a change from the norm, then sit back and open your mind, and meet Mayfair District.
