Bio

“We’re definitely not a band that’s shy. We love to hear ourselves talk. We want to be seen as much as possible. We want to be so big that we can’t even walk down the street.” Mark the words of Redfoo, the programming brain behind electro-hip hop duo LMFAO, who, along with his cohort (and nephew) Sky Blu, have already initiated a full-scale assault on the clubs. In the last year alone, three self-produced and self-distributed LMFAO tracks — “I’m In Miami Bitch,” “Lil’ Hipster Girl” and “Yes” — have become as ubiquitous on the dance floor as any hit by the likes of Rihanna or T.I., while remixes of Fergie’s “Clumsy,” Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown” and Katy Perry’s “Hot ‘N’ Cold,” have lent instant credibility to two guys who’ve turned clowning around into an art form and a business.

It’s all part of an elaborate plan for world domination. No, really. For Foo and Sky, as they refer to each other, what started as a natural collaboration (uncle and nephew, who happen to be close in age, tinkering with drum machines and recording software) with a mix tape thrown in as an afterthought, has evolved into a multi-platform musical movement. With one key mission: live tonight like there’s no tomorrow.

Foo and Sky call it Party Rock, and it’s the name of their debut album, label (via the will.i.am Music Group and Interscope Records), clothing line and general outlook on any given day. “It’s always better to have a party in your life,” explains Foo. “Fun and laughter, the girls, dancing, celebrating… We want to feel the same way walking down the sidewalk as we do on stage.” Which explains an awful lot about their street attire. The guys, who are devout PETA members, favor pimp jackets, oversized glasses (minus the actual glass), faux fur embellishments and the occasional leopard spandex skin tight pants (girls sizes only). If it’s not vintage, then it’s their own Party Rock brand, which Foo and Sky wear exclusively. And their stylish strut seems to be working. “We get way more women now,” says Sky.

Like many rock stars-in-the-making, girls are a recurring theme in LMFAO’s music. From the sun and booze-fueled party anthem, “I’m In Miami Bitch,” to the hilariously scene-y “Lil’ Hipster Girl,” to “I Am Not A Whore,” in which Foo flips your typical song-and-dance mating ritual around with a stroke of reverse psychology genius. “We’ll often write songs based off of simple catch phrases that we’ll hear or say,” he explains. “‘I Am Not A Whore’ started as an experiment to talk to more girls. Because in the club, when the music’s loud, girls come up to us all the time saying, ‘I love your glasses’ or, ‘I love your hair,’ or sometimes they’ll walk by and grab us on the ass. But once we’d say ‘Thank you’ or whatever, the transaction was over! I thought, there’s got to be a way to keep talking and create an interest. We were missing out on all these girls! So I’d say, ‘Just because you’re giving me compliments, doesn’t mean I’ll sleep with you. I am not a whore.’ Amazingly, it worked!” Sky poo poo’d the idea originally, but even he couldn’t deny the volume of cell numbers Foo was collecting. It inspired the line: “I’m a human, not a sandwich.”

It’s high jinx like these that serve as fuel for LMFAO’s non-stop party — one that essentially kicked off at the 2007 Winter Music Conference in Miami. It was there that a mixtape containing “I’m In Miami Bitch” first caught the attention of DJs, club goers and music business executives, expanding LMFAO’s reach far beyond their native Los Angeles. Within a year, a tireless internet initiative, which included daily YouTube updates, a steady flow of comedic skits and bits as well as self-produced music videos, launched them into the homes of millions, and in the process, caught the eyes (and ears) of Interscope Records. “Forget about shopping around, we didn’t send one press shot or one bio,” says Foo, still somewhat bewildered. “They had no idea what they were signing. What they knew was that they were hearing us on the radio and in the club, where at one point, we had a set of three or four songs in rotation.”

Upping the ante, Foo and Sky next took on Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown,” giving it a dance-ready beat as part of its LMFAO treatment. “Within five hours, it was all over the world,” boasts Sky of the blogosphere buzz. Adds Foo: “We saw a void. Kanye put out a record that sounded like a demo, couldn’t really be played in the clubs, but had a great melody. So when we see a void, we’re gonna create and fill it, if we can. That’s how we’re surviving, by watching the trends.”

To that end, LMFAO is as much a brand as it is a band whose goal is instant recognition. “We feel like there’s so much room for invention,” says Foo. “With the internet, the mobile movement, software and music, it’s like the gold rush right now. Eighteen months ago, there was no band, T-shirts or song. But with research and the spirit of entrepreneurship, we basically invented money out of nowhere. I don’t look at it as making product and selling it. Everything you see is an idea and a concept.” And they’re just getting started. The guys also have plans for their own web TV show, a phone app and a movie, which Foo describes as Purple Rain meets Curb Your Enthusiasm meets Spinal Tap and Spaceballs. Sounds just about right.

But first, there’s the music, which stands firm as their No. 1 priority. “It’s like a fleet,” says Foo. “You can only move as fast as your slowest ship, so we have to drag our acting, our comedy and our clothing with us. We don’t want to get too far ahead.”

Looking just over the horizon, the path is promising, to say the least. The guys have already been recruited by Lady GaGa and Chris Cornell for single remixes, and are fielding requests from a host of major artists in the pop and hip hop worlds. And with their full-length debut scheduled for release this spring, expect the buzz to hit a feverish pitch in the coming months. “Party Rock is the kind of record a band would make on their third album,” Foo deadpans. “It’s gonna be our Thriller — it’s meant to take you away, to escape to this world of fun, dance, sex, craziness, do-what-you-want attitude. It’s our lives.”

Now let’s party like it’s 2009!

BIO

Wake the neighbors! Sound the alarm! The streets are going to be set on fire with the debut album by hip hop duo R. City, on Konlive/Geffen Records. With R. City’s work behind the scenes, penning songs for Akon, Usher, Mario, Sean Kingston and Rodney Jerkins, to Nicole Scherzinger and the Pussycat Dolls, Jesse McCartney, Macy Gray, Ashlee Simpson and Enrique Iglesias, they’ve been able to produce an inferno of anticipation amongst the industry and the streets for the release of their album “Wake the Neighbors.”

Hailing from St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, R. City (comprised of brothers Theron a/k/a Da Spokesman and Timothy a/k/a Don’t Talk Much) have created a sound that blends Caribbean twangs of consciousness and struggles of street and island life coupled with hip-hop/pop appeal. They realized their immense talent and started honing their craft at an early age. By the time they reached 10 and 11 they were winning local talent shows and used their prize money to pay the family’s household bills. Plain and simple, R. City was born to be on stage. “We definitely are first and foremost artists more than anything else,” states Timothy. “We were getting a lot of love from the people in the streets from us performing.”

Fast forward to their late teens; by the time they graduated high school; they had a big choice to make. Their parents said “continue in school and we will find a way to help you, continue music and you will need to fend for yourselves and become men.” They obviously chose the latter and came to the U.S. to test their potential for “making it.” “We’ve always been writers for ourselves. Then me and my brother were like, let’s try to write for other people”, states Timothy. Landing in Atlanta after a short stint in Miami, they began penning songs for other artists and placed their first song “The Rain” for Akon via his DJ, Benny D. In a short time, they’ve amassed a staggering number of tunes for renowned artists. “We built a lot of relationships, got cool with a lot of people, networked and found ourselves in a lot of doors we never thought we were going to enter. When we started doing the writing thing, everybody started messing with us,” says Timothy.

Aggressive and hungry tactics – play up their strengths. Theron is a bundle of energy that bounces off the walls; their dichotomy creates a splendid musical union. “We’re night and day but we mesh perfectly together,” says Theron, the soulful Yin to his brother Timothy’s Hip-Hop flavored savvy. The fact that their music is a genre bender isn’t lost on the siblings. “Give us the opportunity to be ourselves because what we doing, nobody has ever done.” It’s never been about money with us, to be honest… Trust me; nobody is going to outwork us. We don’t drink or smoke, or go to clubs. So when people in the club partying, we work, when they sleep, we work, when they work, we work. So at the end of the day, we are going to get more work done than anybody”, says Timothy

That said, their eclectic debut Wake The Neighbors is anything but a work in progress. They are clearly masters of lyric, melody, harmony, hooks, and performance. Their first single ‘Losin’ It’ smoothly tells a story of unexpected lust/love. Their St. Thomas upbringing is also evident on the Madd Scientist produced, Calypso influenced party anthem ‘Wave’, Theron says “as soon as we did it we called Akon. When he heard it, he went crazy and set up a meeting with Jimmy Iovine and Ron Fair to hear the song.” Then there’s the reality checking hip-hop banger ‘Stop Lying’ produced by Shondrae (Ludacris). It challenges the hip hop community to stop boasting about how they are living and things they are doing because it just isn’t true. It can be described as a hard but positive song.

R. City is about a musical movement. Wake The Neighbors is a perfect blend of all the right elements and will be highly regarded and respected as R. City aim to change the face of music. “It’s hard to explain our music because what we are doing is something that is rarely done.” Once you experience them and their live show, you are sure to leave a fan. Go ahead, put in the cd….Wake The Neighbors. It is guaranteed to bang hard enough to keep any neighborhood party going all night long.

MySpace Records to introduce first Hip Hop signing Bossman Via New Documentary, No Struggle, No Success First Single Break Me Off has already earned over 2 million plays on his MySpace page Two New Mix Tapes Available Now As A Free Download on Bossman’s MySpace Page

MySpace Records to introduce first Hip Hop signing Bossman Via New Documentary, “No Struggle, No Success” First Single “Break Me Off has already earned over 2 million plays on his MySpace page Two New Mix Tapes Available Now As A Free Download on Bossman’s MySpace Page

Bossman , the Baltimore MD native who is the first Hip Hop artist signed to MySpace Records will be introduced to the world by telling his own dramatic life story via a 30 day online campaign titled ”No Struggle, No Success,” which is a collection of several one to two minute commercials in which Bossman will examine different events in his life, often tragic which has shaped who he is today as an artist and a man. Bossman will offer two free downloadable mixtapes, The Street Kings and A.T.M. produced by One Up Productions, all featuring Bossman’s music as part of his introduction.

In No Struggle, No Success, Bossman will explain how he grew up as the son of a street kingpin and a drug addict father and a single parent mother who hustled to survive as she battled domestic and drug abuse. He will chronicle the time his mother tried to shoot and kill his father and when he was 13, how both of his parents were incarcerated on a robbery charge. He will reveal how the governor later pardoned his mother, who then reverted to hustling — with her son. The series being shot in Charm City now is both compelling and heart wrenching.

Bossman will examine how he was able to take what he learned from the streets and turned it into a thriving local hip hop label whose sales number and shear urban legend compelled first Jermaine Dupri and now Marquis Collins of MySpace Records to sign him.

The first of the new free downloadable mix tapes is The Street Kings which Bossman says “Represents struggle growing up in Baltimore City, and me being the voice of the struggle, and takin a stand for the struggle. It’s inspired by my own altercations with law enforcement and personal experience with police brutality .”

A.T.M is based on his success. Bossman said, “I’m on my second record deal. I’m in the mind state of gettin money and gives the fans a taste of my true versatility. In my moniker Bossman, B.O.S.S stands for Based On Struggle and Success and that explains my entire story.”

His first single, “Break Me Off” released via his www.myspace.com/bossman page has been played over 2 million times by fans and the release of the video clip shot last month will be release simultaneous to the 30 Days of Pain documentary block.
