Make Music Philly Spotlight: DEF-Bananas


DEF-Bananas is a Jersey-based hip-hop trio that fashions creative, witty, sometimes playful rhymes over catchy beats in a true collaborative manner.The trio, consisting of Lugo, Kam Dela Coopsta VII, and GQ, produce their own music; they all contribute to the vocals, although Lugo and GQ are the primary rhymers. Kam Dela Coopsta VII is mainly in charge of beat-making, sometimes using a  funky old-school style and at other times a more modern electronic-based background. They dub themselves the “three headed monster.” DEF-Bananas will be performing at the Piazza at Schmidt’s this Friday from 3:30 – 4 p.m, as part of the all-day Make Music Philly Festival. Be sure to catch this talented crew, and in the meantime check out their awesome track “99 Bananas.”
