Opio (Souls of Mischief X Hieroglyphics) Short Info

Since the early-1990s, Opio has always done double duty for Hieroglyphics as both an emcee and producer. As a teen, Opio hooked up with local rappers Tajai and A-Plus, whom he met through Casual, another emcee who was Opio's classmate and neighbor.
The three instantly clicked and began recording together, soon adding fourth emcee Phesto Dee, to form the group Souls of Mischief. Together with Del the Funky Homosapien, Casual, Domino, and Pep Love, the legendary crew Hieroglyphics was born.

In addition to his solo show, Opio (of Hieroglyphics and Souls Of Mischief) has joined forces with Las Vegas hip hop DJ legend DJ Scientific and Aagee of Compound 7 to create a live hip hop experience called Opio Live.
With Scientific on the ones and twos and Aagee playing multiple instruments and drum machines Opio's unique style and verses come to life. Opio accentuates his performance by playing multiple drum machines and vocal manipulators while still giving you a real hip hop show. Accompanied by visuals this show is an all-around hip hop experience.

Opio and Free The Robots collaborated in 2014 to release self-titled EP and LP​ "Opio X Free The Robots".​
