Individually, The GroovaLottos are all veterans of the Massachusetts and New York hip-hop scenes. Aside from serving as a session player and producer on numerous hip-hop projects of the 1980's and 90's, Mwalim DaPhunkee Professor's first record was a 1990 release entitled "Her Groove" featuring spoken-word over funk, a pre-cursor to the spoken-word movement that would flourish during that decade. Eddie Ray Johnson had his tenure as a party DJ. Richard Johnson played bass on a number of live and studio hip-hop projects. The band's youngest member, The ZYG 808 is in the process of launching his hip-hop career, having appeared on the Soul Poet's Syndicate release and music video, "Flippin'".
