Underground hip-hop group consisting of two MC's (Lumba Blackwood and Meta-Mo) and two instrumentalists (Isle of Weight and Mr. Echoes from The Opus). Based in what is known as the "Chicago Land Area" (Maywood and Bellwood, Ill) Rubberoom, formed and independently began to release material, in 1992. Through electrifying stage performances, and out of the box hip-hop production, Rubberoom started a buzz that began to envelope and go beyond the mid-west region. Rubberoom eventually signed a distribution deal with 3-2-1 records, out of New York City, and in 2000 released their debut album Architechnology. While touring the album, Rubberoom received news, that 3-2-1 had folded but resigned to yet another indie. As fate would have it, the momentum could not be re established. Weight and Echos went on to form Opus. Lum and Meta maintained renowned MC credibility through solo ventures and various collaborations with other artists.
