-2ND FLOOR SAMURAIS-
2nd Floor Samurais are the latest phenomenon to hit the SF Bay Area Underground Hip Hop scene and comprises of veteran MC’s Orukusaki and Kensho Kuma. Both MC’s are seasoned homegrown independent Hip Hop artists whose roots can be traced back to the late nineties, with respective projects, international tours, and a strong local presence. 2FS was officially formed when the highly decorated battle champion Orukusaki joined forces with the bilingual rhyme ninja Kensho Kuma in 2013. The title “2nd Floor Samurais” accurately captures their dedication to ancient warrior discipline which they apply to Hip Hop, their mentalities, and lifestyles. It also describes the MC’s constant practice and desire to ascend above the societal norm in respects to various life issues, ranging from relationships, human growth, and the derogatory implications of mass media. The view from this elevated state of mind is what the two consider the “2nd Floor.” 2nd Floor Samurais represent the purest breed of MC’s raised in the San Francisco Bay Area by the people for the people; although both rappers are respectively known through their shows and involvements, it is the upcoming group project which has already established them as a permanent fixture in Hip Hop.
