In the rise of generic hip hop. Where it is more about the party, money, cars, fashion and women. Five artist rise up and combined forces to battle humbly like the all mighty Voltron to say enough is enough. With a vision to bring back hip hop to a humble state of mind. These five artist (Odd Thomas, Foreknown, Citizen Aim, Theory Hazit & Propaganda) are not just coming with a vengeance but coming with humility. Not to speak on gain, but for the audience to gain wisdom of self community and respect for their fellow man, woman, and children. This is a group that is not here to separate the artist from the fan. But to build relationships and become someone that person can really look up to. Where the fan is no longer a fan but now a long life friend. Hip hop has always been about a community but we have lost focus in the popularity and made it about ourselves and not the people around us. Humble Beast is here to bring forth the vision of empowering the people to be a people of humility.
