Stre Loc and Five One (SL51) are Hip Hop Legends, a Hip-Hop duo that has been preforming in the northwest for over a decade. They have played countless shows all over the region including such venues as The Showbox, Studio 7, The Knitting Factory (formerly The Big Easy) and the main stage at Hempfest. They have also preformed with many Hip-Hop stars and legends such as 2 Live Crew, Digital Underground, E-40, Bun B, Spice-1, and Sir Mixalot just to name a few. Their stage presence and energy is unparalleled and their years of experience preforming live keeps crowds captivated and wanting more. Other groups have come and gone, but SL51 is showing no signs of slowing down or ever stopping. Their sound is very unique. Stre is from Seattle WA, and Five One is from Saluda SC. The combination of two very distinct sounding voices from two very different regions gives their listeners more to listen to as apposed to the same ol same ol, generic sounds that have been forced on us all for a long time. While some like to make songs about the same thing over and over, SL51 thinks outside the box when it comes to their subject matter, with songs covering all sorts of topics such as, social consciousness, love and heart break, staying motivated and positive, and of course, having fun and enjoying life. Every song takes you on an adventure inside the minds of SL51, giving the listener something to relate to. Once you hear them for the first time, you’ll be hooked and after seeing them preform live, all you can think about is getting your next fix.
