DOWN SOUTH GEORGIA BOYZ
Pastor Troy is back, and this time he brought along some of his boys
from Atlanta, who go by the name of D.S.G.B. (Down South Georgia Boyz).
D.S.G.B. is set to be unleashed on the world and is planning to take the
gangsta tales to a completely new level like a modern day NWA. "We are
ready to crunk this thing up," warns Pastor Troy the leader of the
four-piece crew. "We gangstas man. We are ready to crank this thing up."
Troy, the son of a minister from College Park, Ga. formed the rap
troupe, D.S.G.B., with a few of his friends and decided in 1999 to
launch his first of four solo independent albums under the name Pastor
Troy. By the end 2000, Troy had garnered such a following in Atlanta as
well as in the rest of the south, that he caught the attention of
Universal Records, who re-released Face Off in 2001. In 2002, there
was no stopping Troy, he released the Universal Soldier' album which
featured "Are We Cuttin", the critically acclaimed single, which was
also featured on both the soundtrack and in the blockbuster movie XXX.
Now in 2003, it's time to introduce the rest of the world to the other
members of D.S.G.B.: Lil Pete the Disciple, Blackout (aka Black 2K),
Pinhead the Hellraiser and of course Pastor Troy.
Lil Pete the Disciple, who is originally from Augusta, Ga., has
performed with Troy for years. Described by the crew as, 'the 1st round
draft pick' and 'the one to set it off,' he can be heard on "Vice Versa"
(Face Off), "You Can't Pimp Me" (Universal Soldier) and "Respect Game."
Pete reps with fellow Atlanta artist Bonecrusher's debut disc,
AttenChun, on a track called "Ghetto Song." You can also hear Lil Pete
holding his own on Till Death Do Us Part with his solo track, a
head-nodding-tear-the-club-up-type-joint, called "Bust Yo Head To The
White Meat," produced by David Banner.
Pinhead the Hellraiser, who is describes as 'the thinker, the one who is
on some other shit' is only on a few tracks due to being briefly
incarcerated during the recording of the album. Now he's out, the crew
is complete and once again, it's on. "I'm the one behind the all
controversy," states Pinhead. Blackout (Black 2K), who is described as 'the damn fool' and 'the onewho is down for whatever,' and Pinhead are brothers. They can be heard
trading verses with Troy on "Undefeated" (Universal Soldier) and "Lock and Load," the first record and video that included all four members.
The first single off Till Death Do Us Part is the rough and rowdy
anthem, "D.S.G.B.," which will build an even bigger following to their
already strong underground fans. Other standout tracks include, "My
Block" a smoothed out melodic gangsta joint for all dem dirty boys who
rep their block, "I'm Outside Ho," a straight crunk club-banga and
warning to all who step to the crew in the club and "Who Down To
Ride", a lyrical driveby. 'Till Death Do Us Part', an oath usually reserved for married couples,
is more than an album title. It best describes the family-type vibe of
D.S.G.B., who are the epitome of the phrase, all for one and one for
all. Al Troy (Pastor Troy's brother) is the CEO of their label, Chaotic
Generation, and the four-man-crew are more like brothers, "We all ran
together even before this music thing kicked off," states Pastor Troy.
Look out for each member's solo album soon to follow, but even with the
solo endeavors where each member will show their individual personas, it
will always be all about D.S.G.B "This is just the beginning and it's
not a game. This is probably the best release from this camp to date,"
says Pastor Troy.
Dem Down South Georgia Boys are here to stay.
