Biography

Country. Ass. Slick. Talkin’. Lifestyle. Everyday. Boyz is the meaning of their name as well as their way of life. C.A.S.T.L.E. Boyz or C.B’z for short have evolved into a group that is the best representation of what HipHop was in it’s beginning and is today: hard, honest, fresh, fun, sexy, thought provoking and informative. C.A.S.T.L.E. Boyz consists of three members: PoBode, Skoop and JK da Flame and are real people, not comic book style characters or some PR persons concoction of what they think rappers should look like, act like or think like. These three brotha’s give you true life, not some fairy tales.

Their talent as skilled writers put vivid images of their everyday hood life stories in ones’ head in a way everyone can relate. Their first album release, King Ish gave songs like “Straps & Raps” where they touched on the rap phenomena of turning rap battles into gunplay and street violence. The hook stated, “Straps and Raps don’t confuse it, if it’s beef, it’s beef, if it’s music, its just music.” With the emphasis on its just music, they drive home the point that the rap battle historically is HipHop and to take it to the streets and get killed over something as harmless as playin’ the dozens is plain stupid. And their music spoke for itself with relationship songs like “What Would You Do?,” the G’d up song “Like Sum Geez”, ridin’ songs, “King Ish,” and “We Gon’ Smoke,” the pimp song “Pay to Play,” and the crunk, club joints, “Burn it up, Shut it down” & “Git Right.” All of which will make for a very well rounded first project. Since then, they have released a series of mix tapes, titled "Hood Bussin', which definitely has given HipHop music lovers some classic material. When creating this mixtape series they didn’t want to be another rap group putting out a so called mixtape, basically a compilation of their own music instead featuring up and coming independent artists. Having a good ear for music, they have broke new artists and have the streets declaring HOOD BUSSIN’ is a true version of a Southern Mixtape. Currently, they are prepping for a new album and are testing a few singles - “Can’t Be Yo Man” and “Jig.”

All of the members of C.B’z hail from in and around ATLANTA. Skoop coming from the Dec (Decatur, Georgia), PoBode coming from the S.W.A.T.S. (SW Atlanta) and JK da Flame from Da’ Ville (Gainesville, Georgia). Together they have been working hard at their craft since 1999 sharpening their lyrical, studio and stage skills while retaining one of the most important attributes rare to find in this industry…a genuinely humble attitude. "We appreciate everything that comes to us, 'cause we know ain't nothing good suppose to happen for anybody; anything you get is a blessing." Becoming very astute students of the music industry, watching other local artists learning from their mistakes as well as successes has led them to higher accomplishments and they have worked hard to show Atlanta and the nation that they are one of the best Hiphop groups to come out of ATL since Goodie Mob and Outkast.
