Freestyle Fellowship is an American hip hop group from Los Angeles, California. The group currently consists of Aceyalone, Myka 9, P.E.A.C.E. and Self Jupiter. They released their debut album To Whom It May Concern..., in 1991, followed by Innercity Griots in 1993. Shortly after the latter's release, the group went on hiatus due to the incarceration of Self Jupiter but reunited in 1998 to record the EP Shockadoom although it was not released until 2002. Their third studio album, Temptations, was released in 2001. Freestyle Fellowship's latest album, The Promise, was released in 2011. 

Freestyle Fellowship's vocal techniques, focusing on the method of freestyle rap, and their successful mix of hip hop and jazz established the group as one of the forerunners in the subgenre of jazz rap. It placed them amongst the prominent West Coast underground hip hop acts of the early 1990s, along with groups such as Hieroglyphics and The Pharcyde.
