The Band of the Hawk Underground Pyramid #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 worshiping 90’s hood flicks more than kungfu 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, Yeaux Majesty, Houey Freeman, P.Ey3, Spear Chuka DJ Mastermind 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 Yeaux spits coolness on the mic first or last, listeners know the unmistakable gumbo that is the Band of the Hawk.
Noah Archangel - Band of the Hawk
Noah came in to the Hip Hop game from MCing underground Drum n Bass shows under the name MC Grasshoppa. MC Grasshoppa soon became Noah Archangel the producer, and he began to collab with students and groups at Jackson State University in Mississippi and Xavier in New Orleans.
After his return to Houston, he inherited his Pop's record collection and started collecting beat machines and producing. Then quickly moved around the South, collecting friends and music partners forming the Underground Pyramid Crew. Lead by The Band of the Hawk. #BOHUP

A lyricist, visionary, bully and hip hop royalty. Born & raised in Patterson, La, King grew up listening to jazz, old soul, New Orleans bounce music, & classic golden age hip hop. After graduation he joined the military & was based in GA right outside of Atlanta. He moved to Houston & began to rip the underground mixtape scene. Growing weary of rapping to other artist beats he sought out to find a producer with original tracks. His dream came true when he was introduced to his brother from another mother, "Noah Archangel".

Whoa Vada - Lyricist, Pimp (Grynd Seazon, The Band of the Hawk)
"Whoa Vada, is not the 1, and sho aint the 2, Whoa Vada is ALL!!!!"

Of course he had to pass the initiation, and boy was it a good one. He heard a snippet beat from the H.TX album "A Beautiful Lie". he proceeded to record himself freestyling using his phone and emailed it to Noah. After hearing it, DatBoi3 aka P.Ey3 became a equal member in the Hawks.
