The Cloaks are Awol One and Gel Roc! Two rap veterans in the game and active members from the world-renown Project Blowed (Mass Men, Los ShapeShifters, E Times 2) and Life Seen Differently crews. (of the acclaimed Los Angeles Underground Hip Hop scene and Graffiti street culture) The Cloaks are produced by Awkward hailing from Bristol Uk, with impeccable scratch work by his long-time collaborator Sir Beans and contributions from D-Styles, & RoachTheDj. All in together they’ve created a cult-like following with some hard-hitting underground anthems for the masses.
Fresh off their recent “Friday Night Flavors” Cloak IPA craft beer collaboration with Beer Tape and Hip Hop Craft. Which offered a “Scan The Code, Get The Music” exclusive Maxi-Single & 7” picture disc record from the upcoming full length.
