Spotrushaz is one of the first well known rap groups from twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago that was founded in 1997. Spotrushaz, or the “SR Family” as they are affectionately known, is one of Trinidad & Tobago’s most eclectic music collaborations which originally comprised of 4 artistes of diverse backgrounds, each brought a wealth of skill & experience to the group.
The group was re-established in 2000 and welcomed Meet Source in 2008 who brought the introduction of a Dancehall element, to the intitally strictly Hip Hop group. Now with two members, work has been put in and From mid 2010, they started releasing new singles off their album while doing live band performances at various venues across the country. They also performed as an opening act at the Nas and Junior Gong concert held later that year as part of their world acclaimed Distant Relatives tour.
SR FAM continue to feed off the pulse of their environment while working on new material to inspire and entertain their loyal fans and supporters.
Although still part of group, Meet Source and Tim Starr are currently working on their solo albums and in line with this, have released a series of singles and music videos over the past year.
Only great things can be expected from the SR FAM as they continue share their talent and unique musical style with the world. They have without a doubt made a veritable mark on the local music industry and will continue to do so.
