L.E.P. Bogus Boys Offered Deals From Sony, Warner

Following the successful release of their latest mixtape, Don’t Feed the Killaz Vol. 3, Dec./Jan. 2011 XXL Show and Prove alums, L.E.P. Bogus Boys are fielding a lot of offers from the majors.

“The labels are calling right now, Warner called, E1 called, Sony called,” Count told XXL. “So we just want to make sure that you know we’re kind of having fun right now doing it ourselves and having our own control. Before we decide we’re going to jump in another deal we want to make sure we do everything we can and see if we can go nationally with it, and see if a label can even do what we need to do. If not we’ll just keep doing us.”

Signed to Sony back in the mid 2000s, the Chi-Town duo got lost in the shuffle when the label’s Urban Division shut down. Since leaving, L.E.P. have been making a lot of noise on the blog sites and in their Chicago hometown, especially of the success off their Coodie & Chike directed videos for “Going In for the Kill” and “Ginger.”

Count tells XXL that the group is currently working with the fellow Windy City duo on a full movie entitled The Bogus Boys.

In addition, Count and Moonie are recording a new street album called Now or Neva. —Jesse Gissen

    Somebody need to holla at these cats…. That was a dumb move… First they take yall and put yall on a shelf…. and after 6 or 7 years (while Sony’s feeling the recession) yall go back?????

    You cats may as well be Rhianna going back to Chris Brown after gettin’ her ass beat….

    • Don mcCaine

      Warner is looking to sell the music division, why should they go there?

      and if doug morris is going to sony, they should be ok…his track record @ universal is remarkable (JAY-Z)

  • Sha

    And for the record… I know you cats haven’t made a decision yet but don’t make the Sony decision….

    REAL TOUGH DECISION HERE. THEY BUILT THIS BUZZ ON THEIR OWN, AND NOW THEY GOT THE LABELS ATTENTION. BUT MAJOR DEALS AREN’T ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM…DUE TO RECESSION AND THE WAY THE MUSIC MARKET IS GOING…IT JUST MAY BE WISE FOR LEP TO STAY INDI AND DROP ALL THEIR MIXTAPES WITH NO DJ’S! ON ITUNES AS WELL AS AN ACTUAL ALBUM AND REAP ALL THE BENEFITS THEMSELVES…NOBODY’S GONNA KOP THIS CD…YOU KNOW DAMN WELL EVEN NIGGAZ IN THE HOOD IN CHI JUST GONNA GET THAT SHIT FOR 3 BONES AT A BOOTLEG SHOP OR DL FOR FREE ON THE INTERNET…I THINK THEY BETTER OFF STAYING INDIE AND GETTING THAT RINGTONE, MIXTAPE AND TOUR MONEY…UNLESS THEY GET OFFERED AT LEAST 300K ADVANCE…100K FOR EACH MEMBER. THIS IS A REAL TOUGH DECISION FOR THEM. EVEN WITH ALL THE MARKETING DOLLARS..NONE OF THOSE LABELS KNOWS HOW TO PROPERLY ADVERTISE A HIP HOP ALBUM…MAYBE THE E1 ROUTE BC/ I READ THAT JIM JONES SAID THEY GET MORE MONEY PER ALBUM SOLD THROUGH E1…DUNNO IF IT’S WORTH IT ANYMORE THOUGH. PLUS YOU GOTTA BRING IN EXPENSE FEES WHEN THE GO ON TOUR HOTEL, BUS GAS OR PLANE TICKETS. THEY NEED TO SIT DOWN N FACTOR ALL THIS OUT N TALK TO SOME OLDER CATS IN CHI THAT HAVE BEEN AROUND THE BLOCK…TWISTA, DO OR DIE ETC….BEST OF LUCK TO LEP..BC/ I’M A HUGE FAN, WE NEED REAL D BOY MUSIC AGAIN…REAL RECOGNIZE REAL….I’M OUT….DETROIT…1
