About Anti-Pop Consortium
New York City's Anti-Pop Consortium--composed of MCs High Priest, M. Sayyid, and Beans--were underground hip-hop legends. With an anti-commercial streak that was near polemical, the crew created a brilliantly experimental musical stew that touched on electronic music and free jazz, among other forms. The Consortium broke up in 2002 after barely a half-decade of existence; nonetheless, their legacy is undeniable. Since the group's split, Beans has gone on to great acclaim in the underground as a solo MC, while Priest and Sayyid formed Airborn Audio.
