Basement Up is a Collective of Hip-Hop m.c.’s hailing out of Kentucky’s Capital City, Frankfort. The group’s name and meaning were derived from their early recording history, which started in a home basement recording studio, and was later moved to an attic. The name is also a metaphor to signify a person(s) rise from the “bottom to the top” in life situations. It’s those stories of struggle and triumph, along with a shared interest in music that brought the group together.
Since the groups inception, Basement has released a couple of studio albums including No Fillers (September, 2011), and group member Allen Poe’s solo debut UBUNTU (November, 2012). Their music has also been featured on KevinNottingham.com, Youheardthatnew.com, and DJBooth.net.
