Ever since dalo introduced Hilcrhyme to me, I have been kind of hooked to them lately.
So far Ive managed to dug up some info on them from sites.

<From Wiki>
Hilcrhyme (ヒルクライム, Hirukuraimu) is a Japanese two member hip-hop group. They are best known for their 2009 hit song "Shunkashūtō," which has been certified for 1,000,000 cellphone digital downloads and 1,000,000 ringtone downloads separately. The group was named the New Artist of the Year at the 24th Japan Gold Disc Awards.

The band's name is a pun on the Japanese pronunciation of hillclimb and the word rhyme.

Hilcrhyme first met when Toc performed at a regular music event called Nettaiya, organised by DJ Katsu. After the event finished in 2005, the pair focused working together as a duo, mostly centring their activities around Niigata.

The pair's first official release together came in March 2007, when they released Nettaiya, a demo album. In July 2008, the group released their debut single, "Mō Byebye," independently through Nao Plan management. Hilcrhyme debuted as a major label artist a later, under Universal.

The group's second major label single, "Shunkashūtō," became a massive digital hit in Japan and bringing the group to fame. It has currently sold more than 1,000,000 cellphone digital downloads, 1,000,000 ringtone downloads and 100,000 PC downloads.[1][2] Since then, the band's next single (a re-release of "Mō Byebye") and their debut single, "Jun'ya to Manami," have been certified for being downloaded more than 100,000 times as a cellphone download.

Their song "Loose Leaf" was selected as the theme of the 2010 drama adaption of manga Flunk Punk Rumble, becoming their first drama tie-in theme song.
