The Band of the Hawk - The Band of the Hawk Underground Pyramid Crew #BOHUP

The Band of the Hawk, the mercenary company known as DEF on the battlefield, are a spacious affair: all looped menace and blunted minutiae, not unlike early RZA productions; if he had been raised in Houston’s Fifth Ward worshipping 90’s hood flicks more than kung fu cinema and stuck in a Mario Brothers maze.  These early efforts have since been re-absorbed, shoving way towards the Hawks’ penchants for texture over bombast, interpretation over definition.  The current line-up of the Hawks: Noah Archangel, King aka Yeaux Majesty, Ash Ra aka Houey Freeman, P.Ey3, Spear Chuka and Whoa Vada – succeeds in meeting the audience’s current expectation from a hip-hop group.  Each personality is equally present and distinguishable from track to track, regardless of preferred artistic attack.  Whether Noah raps or produces, or King spits coolness on the mic first or last, listeners know the unmistakable gumbo that is the Band of the Hawk.

Noah Archangel aka Azrael Born Allah - bandofthehawk

Noah came in to the Hip Hop game from MCing underground Drum n Bass shows under the name MC Grazzhopper from 98-00.  On New Years Eve 2000, a friend brought over a playstation video game called Music Generator.  After that night Grasshopper became Noah Archangel the producer, and began to collab with students and groups at Jackson State University in Mississippi. 

After college he returned to Houston, got a job, inherited his Pop's record collection and started collecting beat machines to learn how the legends made records.  Even though this was the beginning of the digital age, he still wanted to learn the analog ways of recording and producing.

Fast Forward to 2013.  Noah moved around Texas, collecting friends and partners forming the Underground Pyramid Crew.  Lead by The Band of the Hawk.
