THE BEGINNING: KOSS (Jimmy Macias) and Lyrical Hitman (Larry Harris) formed a hip hop duo in high school called 2 Real 4 da Mind. Months later Fa’ Dora (Kent Ware) and Siklone (Anthony Romero) joined the crew. 2 Real’s first EP was very socially conscious and discussed issues such as racism, poverty and politics. Soon after Fa’ Dora left the group and is now a very successful DJ in the Denver area.

A STORM IS COMMIN’: 2 Real’s first full length album was titled “A Storm is Commin’” This album was released in 2003 and did well for 2 Real 4 da Mind. A sold out release party launched 2 Real’s career. Soon after this album was released Lyrical Hitman left the group to join the United States Marine Core.
