Bored Stiff (aka B.S. or The Stiff) was formed in 1992 in the Fillmore / Lower Haight Street area of San Francisco. Its members include Equipto, Big Shawn, TD Camp, Mint Rock, White Mic (Brussel Sprouts), Dubstar (Rick Flare), P-Way, Ike Plump, Julz, and more. They released two classic EPs, "Explainin” in 1995, & "Timeless"in 1997. Member JoJo White was tragically killed in 1996. After releasing "Ghetto Research" in 2001, the albums that followed ("From The Ground Up" , "The Sad Truth" , & "Now more than Ever") featured a revolving roster of the core members but they have always valued strong stage presence, dope beats & fun, energetic, conscious lyrics about everyday life. Many of Bored Stiff's members have released solo material since 2009.
