ECOMOG (Every Change Occurs Musically Over Generations), has time and time again proven that anyone with talent and a common goal can come together to make a difference. Consisting of group members Entity, Tonik and Epidemic and equipped with perfectly calibrated lyrics, they blend the essence of old school hip-hop with the energy of new school music. “ECOMOG is much more than just a group, it’s a movement.” says Entity when asked to describe the group. Growing sick and tired of the “get rich quick” format of music that populates the airwaves, ECOMOG plans to make their name known on a worldwide scale to show that success and originality go hand in hand.
Since their first major release in 2008 with SEVENDAYS, ECOMOG has consistently been releasing new material to satiate the hunger of music fans of any genre. Recognizing the importance of their music they kept the ball rolling over the past couple years with the release of five highly acclaimed albums: “808s & ECOMOG (2009),” an album made exclusively from sampling from Kanye West’s 2008 album “808s & Heartbreak,” “Classics Revisited (2010),” “As Seen on TV (2010),” “The Five Elements (2010),” and their latest effort “The Message (2010).” Already wielding a discography bigger than most established artists, ECOMOG has no plans of slowing down with scheduled releases throughout 2011.
In an effort to build upon their talents and gain even more outlets for their music, they started ECOMOG TV in June 2008 following the success of their sketch comedy parodies “The Hardest Rapper Alive” and “Homey the Rap Clown.” “We just got the idea one day to make these sketches, it was all spur of the moment,” recalls Epidemic. The success of these videos also spawned a YouTube partnership. “We do it all; write, produce, comedy, you name it. We just get an idea and run with it and it seems like we’re gaining more and more fans every day.” replied Entity when asked about their comedy endeavor. Since the start of ECOMOG TV in 2008, it has been able to generate a massive online following and gain ECOMOG over 1.2 million views on YouTube for the comedy sketches and music videos uploaded.
“We’re just constantly working, gaining more fans and making more relevant moves every day. It’s only a matter of time,” boasts Tonik about the current status of ECOMOG. With many big things planned for them in the near and distant future, there is no doubt that the path of glory for ECOMOG will lead to greatness.
