Inner Family Legacy Biography:

Inner Family Legacy started as a metal/hip-hop band called Irate in 1996 when founding members Barry Sargent and Shane Wall started writing music together. Having local success, and feeling a taste of the stage for the first time wasn’t easy for Irate. Drummer changes, and poor choices on the band members led to their split in 1999.

Barry and Shane refused to give up on Irate.
Without a drummer or bass player, they bought equipment from a pawnshop to start making hip hop beats and add guitar into them. IFL was first born as Irate 4 Life at this time. By 2005 they were making beats for other artists and continuing their struggle to maintain a stage act.

2009 became another change Inner Family Legacy was born and both founding members picked up mics to release their undistributed album Lyric Assassins Vol. 1. Countless shows later they made a decision to relocate to California and prepare their first official release 420 festival: Compilation 2014.

Later that year Inner Family Legacy was able to begin working with members of Strange Music, and started writing Rise From The Ashes (spring 2017). A few shows, a video shoot and beginning tours led them to decide to take songs from Rise From The Ashes and release an EP.

Trial By Fire EP is sign of change for Inner Family Legacy. Every so often an album comes out, and you know the moment you hear it, its unique and groundbreaking. Taking influence from 90’s West Coast hip hop, the Midwest sounds of Tech N9ne and Strange Music, and other genres like metal, rock, blues and jazz. In an age where Lyricists are becoming more cookie cutter and others aren’t even trying, Inner Family Legacy is breaking molds of the modern age of Hip Hop. Trial By Fire EP is just the beginning, as their full length album Rise From The Ashes is due for release in early 2017.
