Brothers Nick (Nick Fury) and Gideon (Big Oak) Black are the rap duo known as Lexicon. The Southern California natives formed in the early '90s and worked with the Library Crew before making a name for themselves in the Los Angeles underground. Fueled by the brothers' exuberance and undeniable chemistry, Lexicon started turning heads with the release of a pair of 12"s and the EP Antiquity on Mums the World. It was during these sessions that Lexicon hooked up with DJ Cheapshot, a collaboration that would prove quit fruitful. After producing the single "Keep on Moving," Cheapshot signed the duo to his growing Spy-Tech label. Lexicon released their full-length debut, It's the L!, in the fall of 2001. Featuring production by DJ Cheapshot and Vin Skully (Styles of Beyond), the album scored an underground hit with "Nikehead" and quickly established Lexicon at the forefront of Los Angeles' independent hip-hop scene. ~ Martin Woodside, Rovi
