Centerstage Minnesota features Felix, Sean McPherson from Heiruspecs
Felix and Sean McPherson from St. Paul group Heiruspecs joined host Malachy Koons on Centerstage Minnesota. The live band hip-hop group recently released a new album "Pretty Random but What Happened to the Heiruspecs."
Heiruspecs is a St. Paul-based hip-hop band that recently released a new album, "Pretty Random but What Happened to the Heiruspecs."
Their first full album since 2014, the title was inspired by a Facebook post inquiring about the band. Like previous albums, it showcases the rhymes of MCs Felix and Muad'dib over instrumentals created live by the rest of the band.
Their live band approach to hip-hop has been a defining characteristic of Heiruspecs since the late 1990s, when the band members met while attending St. Paul Central High School.
The group has continued to give back to their community, founding a scholarship at St. Paul Central supporting students with an interest in the arts.
Two of the founding members, Felix and bass player Sean McPherson, joined Malachy Koons on Centerstage Minnesota Friday, March 3, to talk about the new album, and about the role of live bands in hip-hop.
Listen to the full conversation with Felix and McPherson and tune in to Centerstage Minnesota 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. every Friday on KAXE/KBXE.
