Clear Soul Forces the group emerged from the aftermath of a 2009 all-nighter at a studio, where the four emcees scraped up some lose change to get in the studio and record some individual music. Detroit emcee Royce da 5'9", who was finishing recording his album Street Hop was coincidentally working in the studio room next door. The four soon-to-be group members jumped at the chance to be able to kick some rhymes for Royce as they engaged in a 9 hour rhyme fest where Royce just listened, made a few faces, and knotted his head while the four emcees traded bars with one another. Royce was impressed, then he kicked out a suggestion; considering each emcee’s different personality and style he posed that the four men become a group, and that was the day Clear Soul Forces (who didn’t have a name at the time) was born.

By early 2010, CSF began rocking Detroit's underground hip hop scene and released their debut mixtape "Clear Soul Radio," a project that was recorded all in one day.

In early 2011 the group shot and released their first music video for the song "Gon Get Em" off of their latest project, "The Departure EP." 2011 held trips to Brooklyn, NY, Denton,TX for the 35 Conferette festival, and SXSW in Austin, TX where the group rocked the Rappers I Know showcase.

In January 2012, CSF released the video for their lead single “Get No Better” off of their debut album “Detroit Revolution(s)” that was destined for a 3/13/12 release. The video for “Get No Better” set the internet on fire, and prepped the world for the release of the groups debut album. In March of 2012, the groups debut album “Detroit Revolution(s)” was released at the same time the group was performing at SXSW for the second time. In October of 2012, Red Bull flew a film crew out to Detroit to shoot a documentary on the Motown emcees.
