Pseudo Slang is Emcee Sick and DJ Form as well as countless contributors such as Trucker Stroe, Tone Atlas, DJ Cutler, Gangsta D and contributing members DJ Tommee, Daringer, Dj LoPro, Mysterious L, A.L. Third + more. Formed in Buffalo, New York and based in Chicago Pseudo Slang have been closely followed for a decade garnering international praise for creating a fresh sound that steps outside of contemporary rap’s confines. Pseudo Slang released their debut Catalogue October 2004 under the umbrella of Baby Steps Hip Hop, which then was operating as a record label. Catalogue was compilation of tracks recorded between 1999-2004, and due to the excitement it generated the group subsequently signed with Brooklyn-based indie-major Fat Beats Records in August 2005. Fat Beats then released Pseudo Slang’s Broke & Copascetic (12” Vinyl single) which sold over 3000 units worldwide, then to hold fans over until the official full-length the Slangers released Thank God It’s Not Another Mixtape (2006, CD) which created yet more buzz.

Pseudo Slang completed six 40+ City US Tours, and toured extensively through Europe and Canada. Their flagship album We’ll Keep Looking was essentially a debut release for PS on Fat Beats, and the buzz has had the meters pinned down since. An exclusive Japanese Import of the album was released in Japan in April 2009.

Most recently Pseudo Slang has had a German Import 7″ vinyl single Cool Letter Man b/w Debt & Danger released on ThinkLoud (2011) for which they shot a music video in East Germany which has increased the PS buzz to a fever pitch. Pseudo Slang is heading to Europe for a tour in the Fall of 2013.
