Seiko Ito

Seiko Ito is a Japanese MC that surfaced in the mid 80's. In 1985, he released his first LP, the self produced "Gyokai-kun Monogatari". That album went highly unnoticed, but in 1986, he collaborated with Tinnie Punks (then known as Tinnie Punx) and released "Kensetsuteki", which carved him a place in the Japanese underground scene.

That album went highly unnoticed, but in 1986, he collaborated with Tinnie Punks (then known as Tinnie Punx) and released "Kensetsuteki", which carved him a place in the Japanese underground scene. Throughout the 80's and the early 90's, he released some albums, but eventually left the hip hop industry to concentrate on acting and appearing in various commercials, starting with being the spokesman for the Sega Mega Drive system in the late 80's. He eventually made a comeback in the Japanese hip hop scene with 2008's "Khazana", his first album in over a decade. He is known for his highly unorthodox style, which often consists of him shrieking in the background over various jazzy samples. He is one of the first breakthrough MC's in the Japanese hip hop scene, and is thus an influence on groups from experimental groups like Kuchiroro, to more conventional hip hop acts like Kick the Can Crew. Seiko Ito is also a close ally of the electrorap group, Kuchiroro. « hide
