Whether the reactions have been those of praise, criticism or simple shock, for the last five years the name F.I.L.T.H.E.E. IMMIGRANTS has been raising many eyebrows and generating curiosity worldwide. Most of the intrigue has stemmed from the acronym F.I.L.T.H.E.E. witch stands for " Forever In Love Thanking Highest Eternal Existence". This acronym highlights the groupís spirituality as the forefront of their motivation. The word "Immigrants" represents the groupís social/political forum and the struggle of any person or group working to make life better for themselves and future generations.

One of the most amazing aspects of the group has to be their uncanny ability to network and move within circles that average Hip Hop artists are not often found. This may stem from the fact that their sound has begun to merge three very important and crucial markets within the music industry, the first of those being conscious mainstream and underground Hip Hop in the fashion of artists like The Fugees, Public Enemy, and The Roots, which the group embodies with their lyrical content and overall message.

Brought together in 1997 and bonded by their love for Hip-Hop culture and the desire to preserve itís foundation while striving to push itís boundaries, the group has set out to craft their sound into the type of music that would embody all of their diverse influences while staying true to itís Hip Hop roots. With members from Venice Beach Ca, Phoenix Az, and Harlem Ny, consolidating that diversity has not only been a somewhat tough task, but also an incredible journey that has begun to gain the group incredible amounts of recognition from not only the underground music scenes, but from main stream media and popular music scenes as well. It was this focus on diversity and artistic challenge that drew veteran rocker Tommy Lee to approach the group to pen a song for his debut solo project entitled "Methods of Mayhem". What ensued was a mosh-pit favorite entitled "Proposition Fuck You", that helped launch Tommyís project to gold status, selling upwards of 750,000 copies worldwide. The group was subsequently invited to open for Tommy and Crazy Town on their coast-to-coast tour. Performing in front of sellout crowds created an incredible buzz for the group who have since gone on to perform with Tommy Lee on many Ozzfest dates. This pushed the group into high visibility status allowing the IMMIGRANTS to share the stage with such luminaries as Dilated Peoples, Busta Rhymes, Mos Def, Kanye West and Big Pun.

One of the main aspects seperating F.I.L.T.H.E.E. Immigrants from other bands in music today, has to be the infectiously eclectic, sound styling and beat programming provided by the groupís in-house producer/co-writer, ďRifĒ. Growing up on the shores of Venice Beach Ca, he was raised transcending many fine lines between urban cultures like Hip Hop, Punk Rock, Reggae, and basic L.A. street life.
