A.R.K. represents the combination of three veterans of the HipHop scene in the greater Washington DC area. Noyeek the Grizzly Bear (Grizz), as a member of his original group Gifted Ingenuity, was one of the first Virginia area HipHop artists to sign a major label recording deal, with Mercury Records. Theory, as a member of his original group Live Society, was one of the first DC HipHop artists to receive national media attention, when Live Society was selected for recognition in the Unsigned Hype column in The Source in the early 90's. as the All three came together as part of the legendary DC underground collective Infinite Loop, founded by group member Dimensions (Dimes). Dimes was formerly in a group with stic.man (of iconic conscious rap group dead prez) when both men lived in Tallahassee, Florida. He also a member of the duo Organic Symmetry in DC. After years of blazing trails on the DC underground separately, the three members of A.R.K. (formerly The Package) decided to combine forces once again. Within a few months of the completion of their debut album, New Golden Era, they discovered that their lead single, "Making Waves" had made an incredible breakthrough, receiving regular spins at the late night mix show of Peter Rosenberg of Hot 97, who became an instant fan of the song. After solo releases from Dimensions, Noyeek and Theory, A.R.K. is back at it with “Trials, Tribulations, TRIUMPH” a dope new collection of songs that speaks to the soul and moves the body.
