At first glance, the pairing of a giant African-American and tiny Jewish white guy is perhaps an unlikely unit by commercial standards. This team is no anomaly though and together the team of 1 Ton and UnderRated create some of the most magnetic musical chemistry. The duo's unique combo of syrupy beats, neck-snapping rhymes and blue collar work ethic have earned them a position as one of hip-hop's most impressive up-and-comers. It all began while battling one another at a DJ competition. Over time, they would join forces and make the jump from behind the tables, to producing beats, to rocking the microphones with a series of independent releases (2001's Humboldt County High and 2004's Harvest Time) that became instant underground classics. In 2006 the group joined forces with Suburban Noize Records and went on to release "Straight Outta Humboldt" and "Pipe Dreams"
Potluck takes their message directly to the people. They have performed on sold-out tours across the nation with Tech N9ne, E-40, Twiztid, D12, and Kottonmouth Kings. As well as countless regional shows with Snoop Dogg, Too Short, Kool Keith, Atmosphere, Ben Harper, Ice Cube, Dialated Peoples, Murs, Jurassic 5, Sean Paul, The Coup, Xzibit, Raekwon, etc If you have yet to see Potluck live it is a very diverse and entertaining hip-hop show.
Label Potluck whatever you want; backpack rap or simply straight-up hip-hop. Any way you evaluate it, Potluck's musical potpourri re-ignites an otherwise extinguished hip-hop game with lyrical depth, rapid fire flows and head nodding beats like the game was supposed to have all along. Equipped with a grassroots campaign, unwavering perseverance, and the development of a solid fan base, Potluck is again out to demonstrate a pipe dream can become reality, even in the face of unconventionality.
