Midnasty was founded in 2001, by the twins Fry and Murray with the dream to put Dumaguete City on the map. This dream fuelled the duo to experiment with hip-hop, and with the drive they had and the backing of their friends and brothers who later joined the group, Midnasty, from that day forward, was on its way. 
In 2004, Ar Kho, one of the younger brothers of the duo joined Midnasty. His unique sense of style and legitimate “street charisma” opened an opportunity for Midnasty to reinvent itself. With Ar Kho’s help, Midnasty began its rise to popularity in the city by releasing self-produced tracks over the radio station of the university where the brothers studied.
