Our style's been compared to: No other group out there. We have been told that we don't sound like we're from New York. However, we are from New York City and can go as far as saying that we are a true New York group because we have a member from each borough in the group. What we have can be consider to be the "new" New York sound.
Our standout records and/or moments to date have been: "Team 5" which had the streets of New York going so crazy that it hit radio station HOT 97, Power 105, and Sirus XM Shade 45. "All We Do Is" is our most recent single that has been catching fire in Atlanta clubs and playing on their radio stations. We also have a record "Do That Here" featuring King L that local DJs have begun to play in the clubs also. Because of our buzz in Atlanta, we were recently worked with Gucci and recorded a record titled "U Ain't Never." We will also be in the studio with Lil Scrappy, and working along side super producer M16.
Our goal in Hip-Hop is: Is to become the No. 1 rap group in the world and bring a new sound to New York Hip Hop that is universal.
