Forming early in the summer of 2008, Dru Manchu, Nick Fury, and Trafek have since stolen hundreds of shows, amassed a loyal fan base, and built a reputation as one of the hardest working groups in Portland, Oregon’s ever growing hip hop scene. Intent on making intelligent, blue collar, high energy music, Bad Habitat has developed an aggressive, progressive sound that incorporates real life lyricism mixed with over the top braggadocio and an original flavor of beats (primarily provided in-house by Fury and Trafek, under the aliases of Flawless and Matt Murdock, respectively). Since incorporating DJ Andy Stack into their ranks in early 2014, Bad Habitat boasts over a half a century of stage experience collectively, and comes equipped with a dynamic live show and original sound, reminiscent of the noise you hear when your roof is being torn the fuck off.
