Oldominion is an American hip hop collective, consisting of more than twenty members.[1] It was described by Casey Jarman of Willamette Week as the "Northwest's largest hip-hop crew" which "united the local underground rap scene for the first time".[2]

History[edit]

After Oraclez Creed (Onry Ozzborn, Pale Soul, and Sleep) connected with Frontline (Destro, Nyqwil, and Snafu), Rochester A.P. named the group Oldominion in 1999.[3] The first album, One, was released in 2000.[4]
