    Since forming back in the early ‘90s, Souls of Mischief have always done things their way. In addition to running their own record label, the hip-hop group also owns the Hiero Compound, a building in their hometown of Oakland, California, that features two recording studios, a screen printing lab and a merchandising warehouse. In this profile, Phesto and Opio explain their familial roots, lyrical style and how they feel about Oakland’s recent gentrification.
