Why Peoti Visions? Peyote is a psychoactive plant that was used by Native Americans as a way to transcend and talk to the gods. It was also used in the men's right of passage into manhood. As young men seeking truth, trying to find our way and searching for God they found this to be an appropriate name. They just changed the spelling. Peoti Visions is set to release their debut album, Peotified, in the fall of 2016.
Peoti Visions is a South Jersey based Hip-Hop/Media group. In a generation where everyone copies what is "hot" and attempts to create a single, Peoti Visions has developed their own sound and swag. They place their focus on their project as a whole, which makes their projects much closer to a cinematic experience than your average rap album.
While they are aware, that A Tribe Called Quest, Outkast and The Pharcyde comparisons are inevitable they are also quite confident that they will quickly move beyond such easy comparisons.
