Profile:
Bursting out of the rich Hip-Hop scene of Philadelphia in the late-80s, Three Times Dope (originally known as 3-D) made their name as part of the infamous Hilltop Hustlers collective alongside fellow local artists Steady B and Cool C.

Initially signed by Lawrence Goodman of Pop Art Records fame (and Steady B's uncle), the trio of EST (emcee), Chuck Nice (producer) and Woody Wood (deejay) quickly gained themselves a dedicated fanbase following the release of early cuts such as "Crushin' & Bussin'" and "From Da Giddy Up".

A falling-out with label-head and manager Goodman around the time the group dropped their impressive debut 1988 album "Original Stylin'" found Three Times Dope being dissed by their former musical allies as they began recording 1990′s sophomore effort "Live From Acknickulous Land".

The threesome finally went their separate ways in the mid-90s, but not without having left an indelible mark on the landscape of East Coast Hip-Hop and beyond.
