1. What inspires you to do music?
1) TRONIK: One of my first memories concerning music…go back to when I was a toddler beating on pots and pans! My passion for music runs deep. And my inspiration comes from too many areas to name just one. It’s always been in my heart and soul and came natural to me.
LUCK: Ice Cube, Willie D, Public Enemy, 2pac, N.W.A., KRS One, Snoop, Cash Money…those were some of my inspirations to do this. I fell in love with hip hop at first sight thru these artists. Man!
Lo$ta: Growing up in my family, I was surrounded by the Blues, bruh. Johnny Taylor, Bobby Blue Bland, B.B. king…and so on. Typical deep south shit! But my affinity to rap came from Biggie Smalls, T.I., Lil Wayne, Pimp C, 50 Cent…to name a few.
2. What are you currently working on?
2) LUCK: We’re currently promoting our breakout single TIP’N 2 SLOW featuring DIAMOND (formerly of CRIME MOB). You can find it on iTunes, Spotify, and online stores/radio everywhere. Even FM radio is starting to play it now. We’re also about to kick off a promo tour. So, stay tuned to our social media for dates and locations coming soon.
LO$TA: We also have a couple more singles in the works that we’re preparing for release soon…20 TWERKS and GO LIVE! 20 TWERKS features a talented artist from St. Louis that goes by the name SHOTTA G. And GO LIVE! has a feature from one of our hometown fam…M.A.C. GO LIVE! will definitely get everyone’s attention fosho when it’s released. So, if you don’t know us now…YOU WILL VERY SOON! TRUST ME!
