Introducing… The GS Boyz “Stanky Legg” Part of Yung Joc’s Swagg Team Entertainment
The GS Boyz Biography
Millions of hits on YouTube. A song/dance sensation born on the blacktop and in the basement, now reverberating through clubs and pounding out of passing cars. The next wave of grass-roots ground shakers is here-meet The GS Boyz. These Boyz definitely stand on their own feet; in fact Soulja Boy invited the talented Texas two-steppers to participate on his national tour.
You already know their ubiquitous “Stanky Legg,” which has everyone from street-hardened soldiers to awkward high school teachers contorting themselves to the irrepressible beat. The song entered Billboard’s Hip-Hop and R&B Airplay chart at #62 entirely independently.
This charismatic quintet has turned other prominent heads; Hotlanta heatmaker Yung Joc signed them to his imprint through Battery/Jive Records, Swagg Team Entertainment.
Says Joc: “I’m pleased to announce this business venture between The GS Boyz, Swagg Team, and Battery/Jive Records. Please be advised that this act is not a one-hit wonder. The hits to come will leave other labels wondering why they didn’t sign The GS Boyz first.”
The GS Boyz, originally a duo comprising “Prince Charming” aka Mathew Griffith and Keithian “Slizz” Cherry, assembled in 2005 in Arlington’s Bowie High School. “Marc D” aka Maus Dinkins, another classmate, would soon join. Looking to combat the escalating gang-related violence they witnessed daily, the trio focused on making positive, feel-good music that’d move people to dance, not fight. Marc D produced their first official offering, “Hit the G-Spot.” The joint caught the attention of crooner Decory “DK” Kenner, then a part of an R&B ensemble called New Faze. He’d join the group to collaborate on their debut street single, “Twisted,” which invaded local teen clubs and started bubbling on MySpace. That quickly, The GS Boyz appeared on everyone’s radar as the next big thing from the Dallas-Fort Worth region. Following records “He Don’t Deserve You” and “First Time” did nothing to slow their snowballing momentum.
Come 2007, the quartet added one more member, a local MC named “Soufside” aka Telson Flowers. Proving to be the last piece of the puzzle, Soufside helped compose what has since become their global phenomenon, “Stanky Legg.” The song and its accompanying dance caught the ear of high-profile Louisiana DJ Bay Bay, known best for breaking Hurricane Chris and his smash single “A Bay Bay.” He helped push The GS Boyz to where they are now: busy touring with headline acts Soulja Boy, Lil’ Flip, Bun B, Mike Jones, and others. The song and dance have spread to six continents, and the groundswell won’t stop there. Expect their debut album, through Battery Records, sometime in 2009.
Affirms Neil Levine, Battery Records’ Senior Vice President and General Manager: “The Stanky Legg Dance by the GS Boyz is blowing up as the newest dance craze, sweeping the country with millions of viral views. We’re happy to be in business with Yung Joc’s Swagg Team Entertainment and looking forward to taking this movement to the next level.”
