KRIMINALS Kriminals Is a unique gathering of indavisuals, striving to acheive there goals in a passionate manner. Starting out as a local street gang from south Austin Texas, in the early 90s gave them a understanding of the trials and tribulations in life, that we all face. Rather than self destructing which was a high probability, they rose to the challenge of surviving this dirty game. In the process of staying a float they picked up the knowledge needed for there long journey ahead. As in what is seen so often in Texas, freestylin was a large part of there recreational lives! Often they received compliments and suggestions of getting more serious about what at the time was just a hobby. Soon, taking head to the advice of there peers they began to do just that, and become more serious about music and how they could create it. At that time (2003) they began to put money, man hours, and sweat into what was starting to become a job. Starting with (Kriminals-Chapter 1) a raw show of talent they began there quest. Next up was (Kriminals-Kriminalistic minds) Which was giant show of progression and skill in this trade they were taking on. Both of these albums were released in 2003. 2004 brung the year where they got a full understanding that they were on to something. Yet in there lives things were rough so things were not moving as fat as they would have liked. With the mind set of keep going and not once thinking of quiting they began working on(Kriminals-Kriminals on the loose). With the understanding that this could be done, They took there time puting passion and lots of hard workstriving to put out classic tracks that could be played trough the ages. In the process of the recording of this album they got there first oppurtunity to perform along with life long friend NICK-D live at the Historic Victory Grill. The first show was a huge success blowing up the stage and opening the door for many performances to come. Over the next year they open for big name artist such as Webbie, 8 Ball & MJG, Big Tuck,Big Moe Dirty Wormz etc..... and at least 25 shows in venuse such as Antones,Ruta mayas, Troubadours, Red 7,Spiros, 311 and many others. Then came 2006 where they bgan workin on ther best peice of work up to date which is (Kriminals- The Games We Play) which far exceeded in talent passion and original classics for a larger audience to reach! All in all Kriminals Is a up and coming group out of South Austin Texas, looking to make a stain and music that can last trought the ages.
