The Isosceles, a Canadian hip hop trio, is made up of twin brothers Shrmpy and Sasafras, as well as the telepathic triplet known as Boya D. The crew began its odyssey after Shrmpy and Sasafras recorded an EP with the Dream Warriors in May of 1995, under the name Mirror Image. This EP, a self-titled release, was engineered and recorded at the Beat Factory Studio (in downtown Toronto).

It was sent to several major record labels, at their request, to be reviewed for discussion of record contracts. The labels were hesitant to sign them because they wanted to hear more material, but Pallas Records purchased the rights to Pet Peaves, a track produced by DJ Luv, which was featured on a Japanese compilation.

Later that year, they flew home to Saskatoon, where they heard an underground tape of independent Vancouver hip hop artists. One of those artists was a solo musician who went by the name of Boya D. After hearing this tape, Shrmpy and Sasafras were destined to discover Boya's whereabouts in the greater Vancouver area; a week later they left Saskatoon and headed out west.


In the summer of 1997, the newly founded Isosceles crew recorded a self-titled EP which was circulated all across Canada, giving them a buzz on radio stations, in and around the cities where they've performed. Unfortunately, two years went by before they decided to really make things happen because of the long distance between Vancouver and Saskatoon.
In early April of '98, Boya left his humble abode in Vancouver and relocated to the prairies where their latest release, Face the Music was recorded
