Mithra was originally a poet whose poems also worked as rhymes. Then he made a debut in the group named K-Ryders, which included J-Win, DJ D-Tones, Kyung Bin. K-Ryders actively led a concert in Korean underground around 2000s, and was disbanded in 2002 due to members' personal reasons (such as studying or pursuit of personal careers). Park emceeing and poetry readings were the first places where he met Tablo, someone who he would work together with in the group Epik High.
