Cesar Comanche on ABB Records

Cesar Comanche is one of the founding members of the lauded North Carolina hip-hop collective better known as the Justus League. The Justus League is also home to critically acclaimed act Little Brother who helped put the crew on the map with the success of their debut album The Listening (ABB Records) in 2002.

After a few years of working and perfecting his craft, Comanche along with 9th Wonder, organized their fellow friends and rap artists in the Triangle's hip-hop scene and started the Justus League Crew in 1999. Since then, he has performed with such acts as Tha Liks, The Coup, Hieroglyphics, ZMan, Dilated Peoples, Living Legends, Faust & Shortee, and Wordsworth to name a few. The album features a string of guest appearances including Tajai from the Souls of Mischief, Phonte and Big Pooh of Little Brother, and several Justus League members as well as production by 9th Wonder (Little Brother, Jay-Z, Destiny's Child), Nicolay (Foreign Exchange), Khrysis (Justus League) and more. When asked what inspired the Squirrel and the Aces, Comanche said, "The album title comes from my father's band he had in the early seventies; my mother was also a singer in that group. This album is dedicated to my parents group and also is a celebration of the musician/entertainer." Squirrel and the Aces debuts September 20th 2005.
