Vise Versa, Chief Nek and Shawn Dubb. Mike Landers and Alan Johnson have been in Los Angeles only a couple of years, but their hip-hop careers have skyrocketed since relocating from Colorado. Landers and Johnson met while living in Colorado Springs. They paid their dues starting in the late 1990s, working alongside local crew The Procussions. Just like any aspiring hip-hop artists, they did talent shows, showed up for open mics and tried to get gigs around the state.
