Da Commission

In a region where to say hip hop is an under appreciated genre would be a gross understatement, and those pursuing it are easily shunned as juvenile, entirely un-serious or simply ignored, the brothers have been on a relentless crusade to reverse this perception by putting out an internationally competitive product which challenges the prevalent mediocrity and is an attempt to put Balkan Hip hop on the map. The semi-hostile environment for the culture has been a main source of Da Commission’s smash mouth and Dalmatian no compromise brand of Hip hop. The early-mid 2000’s saw a rise in the cultures popularity, though despite experiencing a fertile era in which slews of classic records pumped on radios and parks throughout urban hangouts in Croatia, today hip hop is a catch phrase or something ‘foreign’ to the populace. And you can’t exactly blame them, as the culture has have had no true champion in over a decade and been plagued by sub-par material resulting in a decline in demand. Armed without much more than raw talent and sheer determination, the brothers kept moving forward one obstacle at a time, honing their craft, cutting off heads of those who tried to tell them they couldn’t do it, and as Intricate D put it, ‘concern sparked indignation so The Fury was born…’ – a reference to the groups much anticipated ‘The Gods Fury’ record.
