Info:The S.O.G. Crew from Anaheim is a unique slice of modern west coast hip hop that is sent by God to reach all generations, nations, and countries through the influence of powerful lyrics.

Comprised of Team Leader and ordained Evangelist, Robert Ornelas (Battle Ax), Johnny Diaz (Revolutionary), and Corina Gonzalez (DJ Siren).

The S.O.G. Crew not only blows the world away with their beats, but they are also a team of missionaries whose hearts and actions are for the people of this country and world.

The S.O.G. Crew, based in Anaheim, California, has been trailblazing the hip hop scene since 1999. Touring the U.S. multiple times they have performed at night clubs, coffee houses, colleges, universities, high schools, prisons, rehabs, and project housing, amongst places, just to bring the message of truth and hope to the hungry hearers. Performing before Mayors, American Indian Nation Chiefs, Chambers of Commerce board members, their music is not the only highly desirable and sought after trait, but also, their exceptionally influential speaking and mentoring abilities.

The S.O.G. Crew has performed with many artists such as Buckshot and Sean Price of the Boot Camp Click, Black Sheep, Sly Boogie, Self-Scientific, Killa Priest of the Wu-Tang Clan, Far East Movement, T-nut producer of (Snoop dog and east siders), Tunnel Rats, Lacrae of the 116 Clique, Kelly Price, Betty Jean Robinson, Vickie Winans, Paul Wright, Dynamic Twins, Gospel Gangstaz, Priesthood, Imisi, Willy G., Dogwood, Altogether Separate, News Boys, P.O.D., and several others.

They have also worked with NFL Players such as Ricky Manning from the chicago bears and Lorenzo O’Neal from the San Diego chargers, Pro-Skater Christian Hosoi, and with Mayors for city events.

They have performed in venues such as House of Blues, B.B. Kings, Dream Centers of Los Angeles and Santa Ana, Los Angeles Marathons, and several local and international radio and television stations.

Yvette 'Lyrical Shine' joined The SOG Crew in 2000 and became good friends with the SOG family. She met the group in Bakersfield at a youth revival and ripped on the mic at hundreds of concerts. Shine participated in their first full album 'We Rise To Get Down' which came out in 2005 and sold 20,000 independently. Then she turned her attention to her growing family and decided to step out of the scene in early 2006. Shine is cousin to Latin rap pioneer SlowPain and with those family roots in music it's hard for her to resist the call to rap. In 2009 she made a comeback hitting the studio with Jeff Gibbs (music engineer to Kanye West, The Game, Justin Timberlake) to work on 'What's Our Name', a song off SOG's upcoming album 'Where Legends Are Born' (2009).

On May 9th, 2007 the 4th Man Music Group announced that the group SOG Crew would receive distribution for the new album "Up That Game" (2007).

Movie: The Rally
The SOG Crew will feature in a film named 'The Rally' set to be released in theatres late 2009. 'The Rally' is a gritty drama which follows several families living in a town riddled with crime and corruption. As the local church works to bring positive change to the town, they are confronted at every turn by those that desire to keep the city in bondage... until today. God has sent a team into the city to bring change. One Event...One church...One God...The Rally. The film stars Ricky Reyna, T-Bone, Danny Martinez (Grid Iron Gang), and Kenneth Copeland.

The Godfather of Latin hip hop, Mellow Man Ace, will be using SOG Crew's 'What's Our Name' on his universal compilation making it a multi-cultural, multi-genre, and multi-generational album. The compilation Volume 2/3 Double Release is scheduled for store release late Summer in August 2009.

The crew released their first album "We Rise to Get Down" in 2005. The S.O.G. Crew has no vision to slow down and released their 2007 album "Up That Game" on August 7th, under their Whirlwind Music Entertanment label.
