BandHip Hop

Tasteful, yet catchy, original old-school hip hop. Real people, real music!


So who and what is Daboondox? Well it's very simple, my answer to that question is DaBoondox are Real People with Real Music...Made up of the multicultural tag team duo of Jeff Killin and Troy Napier both residents of Girard, Ohio. Yeah!! that's right, a little suburb town outside the rough hard streets of Youngstown, Ohio. We are just two individuals that just never gave up on a dream and continue to think outside the box. We are making it our life's mission to make music from the heart. We believe in diversity, brotherhood and peace. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, sacrifice and patience to become successful. We pride ourselves on bringing a big city performance to the stage everytime we perform. We incorporate projection videos along with each song on a 12x12 foot screen to create what we call "hip-hop theatre". We are a product of our own environment and we bring the world real hip-hop music. Some of our influences include Outcast, Digable Planets, A Tribe Called Quest, Digital Underground, Black Eyed Peas, TuPac Shakur and even old school hip-hop artists including Public Enemy, Slick Rick and Big Daddy Cane.


We began our journey in 2002 and in 2004, we released our first album, Da Armpit of the States. Two years later in March of 2006, we released our second album, Wounded World. Since the release of Wounded World, multiple tracks have been played on internet radio station Rukus Radio out of Youngstown. We created an anthem single for the Youngstown State University football team called "Game Time" which is played at every home game. In April of 2011, we released our third and most recent album, Da Perfect Storm. Da Perfect Storm album, which includes fifteen amazing tracks, has gained us the most attention. "The Club is on Fire" and "Until the Sun Comes Up" are two tracks which have hit the airway through "The Home Grown Show" on 93.3 the Wolf and Rukus Radio as well as an internet radio station for Youngstown State University, Rookery Radio, which aired "The Club in on Fire" in Louisville, KY.
