Hieroglyphics 

At the newly reopened UC Theatre.

Hieroglyphics is a legendary Oakland hip-hop collective that was at the forefront of conscious hip-hop on the West Coast in the early Nineties and continue to have an active presence in music as well as in the community. Del the Funky Homosapien, one of the collective’s stand-out MCs, is about to embark on his next national tour. And Tajai Massey (of Souls of Mischief, a group within the larger Hieroglyphics collective) recently launched a new interdisciplinary art space in San Francisco called ELL SF. Massey’s daughter, Siri, is also an up-and-coming rapper who is featured in this week’s music section. Catch Hieroglyphics live at the new UC Theatre on June 25.
