The Greenhouse Effect crew was started back in 1996 in Springfield OH, when the emcees Blueprint, Inkwel, & Manifest were in college together. Shortly thereafter they began working on their debut EP titled Up to Speed, that was released in 1998 on cassette then re-released in 1999 on CD. This EP release also marked the birth of their own imprint Weightless Recordings, which has since went on to release music from Blueprint, Illogic, Envelope, & Zero Star in addition to Greenhouse Effect's Music.

In 2002, shortly after the release of their Life Sentences album, emcee Inkwel retired from music and started his career in Gospel rap. The remaining emcees Manifest & Blueprint continued on to create the next greenhouse album Columbus or Bust that was released in 2005 through a licensing deal with Raptivism records. Raptivism records pretty much folded soon afterwards, and because of contractual disputes (i.e. them pretty much sucking at everything) the boys from greenhouse effect went their separate ways, back to Weightless where it all began. Months later the greenhouse crew released Greenhouse vs Radiohead, which got much acclaim, although it would never be released commercially for fear of a lawsuit over uncleared samples.

In 2007, it was discovered that emcee Manifest had committed many shiesty deeds against his fellow weightless brethren, so he was banished from hip-hop never to be heard from again. Once again Greenhouse was reformed. This time with Blueprint & Illogic, who are now working on their newest release "Bend But Don't Break" to be released in late 2009, produced entirely by Blueprint.

Greenhouse. Shakin haters off since '99
