Scha Dara Parr, or SDP for short, is a Japanese rap group with whom Adam Horovitz has collaborated. Comprised of two MCs, Bose and Ani, and one DJ, Shinco, Scha Dara Parr has been compared to rap groups like De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, and Beastie Boys.

In 1999, SDP performed at the Beastie Boys-organized Tibetan Freedom Concert in Tokyo.

In 2002, two SDP mp3s--one of which was labeled as "Adrock-track_03japan_snippet.mp3"--were leaked online and circulated among Beastie Boys fans. It didn't take long for fans to identify the song as a collaboration between SDP and Horovitz. The song featuring Horovitz, titled "Where Ya At?" ended up on SDP's 2000 album Docompact Disc.

SDP also collaborated with De La Soul on the group's 1993 album Buhloone Mindstate on the song "Long Island Wildin.'" The group continues to record and tour. In 2009, the group released their eleventh studio album, titled 11.

Interesting fact: Nigo's BAPE company has made action figures for both Scha Dara Parr and Beastie Boys.
