SAIID AND UJONC

Ujonc (Rookie) and Saiid started writing beats and lyrics in 1996 as HTA (Higher Tone Alliance). First lyrics were in English, then after about a year they chose to use their mother tounge for rapping, thus the name had to be changed to Hungarian too, so the group’s name was finally changed to Akkezdet Phiai (Sons of Outset) in 1999.

As their words and music spread in the Hungarian underground, more performances followed, and next to small hiphop clubs in the country the group also performed at big events in front of huge crowds. They opened for RZA, Masta Killa and Tekitha on the Rza Show in Budapest 2001, also opened for De La Soul at the 2003 DMC World Championships in Budapest, shared stage with Planet Asia, Declaime and several US artists, and will also open for Raekwon (Wu Tang) towards the end of May this year.

Although they come from hiphop, since they put much emphasis on the power of words in general they lately have been actively connected to poetry slam as well.
