seven facts:

 

#1 - Grew up on hardcore gangster rap - Onyx, DMX, Wu-Tang Clan, then got into punk music when they started going to "gnarly ass New York punk shows" like Hoax and Dawn of Humans.

 

#2 - The newly-added third member of their group is Ian Longwell, drummer and DJ for Santigold.

 

#3 - theOGM is the son of Haitian immigrants.

 

#4 - When asked how their music could be defined, theOGM described, "It's just like frustration. Bottled-up anger. You go onstage and release it. It's, like, liberating. I can't really explain."

 

#5 - They used to throw all-night punk shows at a Newark-based gallery, with their crew NJ Street Klan. Glass was broken, cats may have been sacrificed.

#6 - In 2013 they tried to play Afro Punk but weren't chosen, so they copped a merch booth, waited for people to come through and then just started performing. The stunt paid off and the next year they were named to the official lineup. 

 

#7 - Cancelled Christmas last year w/ Lil B and Trash Talk.
