Biography

A.O. (Arrogant Opposites)
BIOGRAPHY

IT ALL STARTED IN THE LATE 1980'S AT DEKALB MEDICAL CENTER WHEN THREE FUTURE LEGENDS (A.O.) WERE BORN. EARLY IN LIFE THEY GREW UP WITHIN CLOSE DIAMETER. HOWEVER, WHEN TWO OF THE THREE GROUP MEMBERS, CRISSTYLE AND J.GATZ, WERE PLACED IN AN ENVIRONMENT OUTSIDE OF THERE NATURAL ELEMENT, THEY MET AND DISCOVERED THAT THEY HAD BOTH A SIMILAR UPBRINGING AND A NATURAL PASSION FOR MUSIC. THAI, A CLOSE FAMILY MEMBER OF CRISSTYLE, WAS STILL IN THE DECATUR AREA WORKING ON HIS PASSION AS WELL: MUSIC PRODUCTION. THAI WENT HIS OWN WAY IN THE BEGINNING, AS DID J.GATZ AND CRISSTYLE AS A DUO. THE DUO TEAMED UP WITH A LOCAL PRODUCER AND RECORDED THEIR FIRST SINGLE “CALL THA DOCTOR.” THEY LATER SUCCEEDED IN GETTING THIS SONG PLAYED ON THE RADIO FOR THE 1ST TIME DURING THE SUMMER OF 2005.

THINGS SEEMED TO BE GOING QUITE WELL UNTIL THEIR PRODUCER UNEXPECTEDLY PICKED UP AND LEFT WITHOUT ANY WARNING. THIS LEFT THE TWO WITH NOWHERE TO RECORD THEIR MUSIC. FORTUNATELY, THAI HAD BEEN NOTICING THE PROGRESSION OF THE DUO, AND WANTED TO BECOME APART OF HISTORY IN THE MAKING. THAI JOINED J.GATZ AND CRISSTYLE, AND A.O. THEN BECAME A TRIO. EARLY ON, THEY WERE FREQUENTLY DISAPPOINTED BY BROKEN PROMISES MADE BY OTHERS PERTAINING TO SHOWS, PROMOTIONS, ETC. THIS BEGINNING STAGE IN THE GROUP’S CAREER OPENED THEIR EYES TO HOW THE MUSIC INDUSTRY REALLY WAS.

THESE THREE TALENTED YOUNG MEN THEN BEGAN MAKING THEIR OWN EFFORTS TO PUSH THEIR MUSIC DURING THE SUMMER OF 2006. A.O. ENTERED THEMSELVES INTO MANY SHOWCASES IN THE METRO AREA OF ATLANTA PERFORMING THEIR FIRST SINGLE AS A GROUP: “PACMAN.” THEY RECEIVED GREAT REVIEWS BUT WOULD ONLY PLACE SECOND AND THIRD IN COMPETITION. ALTHOUGH THIS WAS A GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT, A.O. STILL SEARCHED FOR THAT SPECIAL “SOMETHING” THAT WOULD PUT THEM ABOVE ALL COMPETITION.

AFTER RECORDING NEW TRACKS, REVAMPING OLD ONES, AND HAVING THEM REJECTED BY LOCAL RADIO STATIONS THEY FINALLY CAME UP WITH THE SONG “EVERYBODY OFF THE WALL and COME ON” THE TRACKS WERE PRODUCED BY THAI AND ANOTHER LOCAL PRODUCER NICK BAILEY. NICK WHOM WAS ALSO A CUSTOM DESIGNER, HANDPAINTED SHIRTS FOR THE GROUP WHICH HELPED THEM STAND OUT AMONG OTHER ARTISTS EVEN MORE. THIS, ALONG WITH A SIMPLE DANCE ROUTINE HELPED ESTABLISH THE GROUPS REMARKABLE STAGE PRESENCE.

FROM THEN ON THE GROUP RECEIVED 1ST PLACE IN ALMOST EVERY SHOWCASE THEY ENTERED. THROUGH THEIR MANY VICTORIES, THEY ACCUMULATED A SMALL FANBASE WHICH CONTINUES TO GROW MAINLY BECAUSE OF THEIR DOWN TO EARTH PERSONALITIES. CRISSTYLES WILD AND OUT OF CONTROL STYLE BRINGS A LIVLEY AND CRUNK STYLE TO THE GROUP. THAI, WITH HIS KNACK TO BE DIFFERENT FROM THE AVERAGE MUSICIAN, ADDS THE "SPECIAL SAUCE TO THE BIG MAC" AS HE WOULD SAY. J. GATZ' ABILTY TO MAKE LISTENERS THINK WITH HIS PLAY ON WORDS, METAPHORS, AND POWERFUL PUNCHLINES BRINGS THE LYRICAL INFLUENCE TO THE GROUP. TOGETHER, THESE THREE BRING CREATIVE, UPLIFTING, MINDBOGGLING, AND CRUNK MUSIC BACK TO THE SOUTH.
