Molemen is a trio of Hip Hop producers from Chicago, Illinois, consisting of Panik (also known as His-Panik), Memo (short for Memoriza) and PNS. The trio runs Molemen Records, which features a stable of affiliated artists, including Vakill, DJ Presyce, Scheme, Astonish, Decay, and Longshot. Well-respected in Chicago's Underground Hip Hop scene [1], the Molemen have collaborated with numerous Chicago rappers, as well as artists from the East and West Coast[2].

Recording history

The Molemen debuted in 1997 with an EP titled Below the Ground, which featured the underground hit "Freestyle or Written" by Juice, as well as early appearances by Vakill and All Natural. They returned in 1998 with another EP, titled Buried Alive. The EP featured one of the earliest appearances from future Chicago favorite Rhymefest, along with another underground hit, "Vocabulary Spill", by Mass Hysteria. Both EPs were later re-released together on a compilation titled BelowtheGround.BuriedAlive. In 2001, the Molemen released a pair of compilations, Chicago City Limits, Vol. 1 and Ritual Of The... . The former exclusively featured Chicago artists, while the latter featured a diverse roster of guest emcees, including C-Rayz Walz, Slug (of Atmosphere), Rasco (of Cali Agents), Aesop Rock, MF DOOM and Grand Daddy I.U. The album was remastered for a re-released version in 2004, titled Ritual Of The... : Revisited and Remastered. In 2005, the group released another compilation album titled Lost Sessions, which featured a variety of tracks by outside artists produced by the group. 2006 saw two more Molemen releases, with Chicago City Limits, Vol. 2 coming first in May. A full-length album titled The Killing Fields was released on November 14, 2006. The album featured appearances from Chicago locals including Vakill, Mass Hysteria, Rhymefest, Mike Treese, and Juice, as well as Cormega, Brother Ali, Kool G Rap, Grafh, Felt, Saigon, Casual, Del the Funky Homosapien, Virtuoso and Mikah 9.E
