GUNNAR MCKELL: Emcee
MARK DAGO: Emcee
The Numbs, of which MC Gunnar does tattooing at Island Style in Provo, are Utah’s preeminent rap/hip-hop group, the standard against which others chalk up in comparison. The group has been around nearly 10 years and released their first album, The Word, in 1996. They started out as “the Numbskullz” in reference to the local mentality. “Dedication” will appear on their forthcoming EP in 2004. It’s a tasty slice of oldschool about “livin’ the life” in the SLC, with great sampling loops and turntable work, and guest rapper Fisch Furthermore from Tooth & Nail Records. They also have a song on UPN's America’s Next Top Model finale and in the movie Cut Throat Alley. FOX Sports Net has played numerous tracks from The Word on a variety of Xtreme sports shows. The Numbs’ music can be heard on video games Amped 2 & NBA JAM. —Stakerized!
