Ces Cru

Biography

Bringing some classic hip-hop sounds to the Strange Music roster, Kansas City's Ces Cru feature rappers Ubiquitous and Godemis. The group formed as a trio in 2000 with rapper Sorceress rounding out the lineup, and in 2004 they released their debut album, Capture Enemy Soldiers.

They returned as a duo in 2009 with The Playground, an album they hand-delivered to Strange Music label boss Tech N9ne when he witnessed the group opening for Devin the Dude at a Kansas City show. Tech signed them in 2010 and two years later released their Strange Music debut, the 13 EP. The album Constant Energy Struggles followed in 2013, then Codename: Ego Stripper landed a year later and marked the first time the group cracked the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 album chart. The EP Recession Proof was released in late 2015.
