Bio

Guess what!? The Stoops are back! It has been 6 years since our last track, Middle of a Riot, and while all has seemed quiet on the Western Front, the arsenal of tracks we've got ready to drop would suggest otherwise. So get ready, we're about to peel the poster back from our own Andy Dufresne tunnel.

We are a 3-piece outfit from Perth, WA, who have been making golden era inspired hip hop for going on 15 years. We comprise of three core members; DJ - Arms In Motion and emcees -Roc Walla and Pronto. We've spent the majority of the last few years tweaking and evolving our soul- fuelled signature sound in preparation for what could now be almost regarded as a Debut release (although it is our third). “Boom Cycle”, is an entirely self produced album which we are beyond excited to finally reveal to you.

First off the ranks was “Middle of a Riot”. The tongue in cheek song that did so well for us. This was very much the taster for what we were aiming to achieve with the album, both from a production and topical content point of view.

Now we are finally ready to release the first of a small run of singles before releasing the album later this year. First off the ranks is "If I Had a Kid", due to be released Feb 28th, 2020.

If I Had A Kid emerged as a playful thought experiment which, in an ironic twist of fate, would become a foretelling as Pronto recently became a proud father. It was this personal milestone that reignited us to release IIHAK as an opening single, marking a new chapter for us whilst setting the stage and tone for Boom Cycle.

This track is an acknowledgement of our own mistakes disguised in the form of parental guidance.

WELCOME BACK! Have been loving this over the past few days. Some lol lines as well - "reality's a bitch, she hasn't added me yet" got me.
