Bio

It’s been almost a year since the 3 Detroit Natives first exploded on the national music scene with there thunderous tune “Flossin’ Season Is Over.” Like an uncontrollable wildfire, the song blazed its way through the underground and literally became one of the hottest songs in the South. Their subsequent self-titled debut drew rave reviews from the streets – the album is pure adrenaline on wax.

The D-Boyz musical tale has its roots deep in the streets of Detroit. “We came from way different things,” says Smokey. “We all from the same city, that’s how we hit it off really.” However, it was their love of music that brought the three together at a talent search for Detroit talent, where they would develop a style that would eventually lead them to fame and fortune. “The name [D-Boyz] was made up a long time ago meaning dope boy,” says Reese. “We from the streets, but we really using the name to represent our city [Detroit], that name is a part of our history, it’s a reminder of where we came from, but we’ve turned it into a positive thing.”

Soon the group started hitting the streets with their underground CD Singles, doing countless shows around the city of Detroit, and Atlanta, GA. After a while, D-Boyz earned a reputation for putting on exciting shows. One of the highlights of that show was their performance of the underground song, “Flossin’ Season Is Over” - it caused sheer pandemonium. Whenever the beat dropped and the crew started chanting “Nobody”, the clubs would go crazy. Impressed with their talent and performance skills, Jive Records signed the Groups label, but later dropped them. Two months later the D-Boyz debut was ready. Fueled by the blazing hit single “Flossin’ Season Is Over,” the D-Boyz debut album sold well over 78,000 units in 2 months with little promotions.

Now, just when you thought that it was safe to go to the clubs or turn on your radio and enjoy a nice quiet D-Boyz free evening, Smokey (24), Reese (25), and BIG Jr. (21) return with their long-awaited re-release of their first album. An album that features, a new single “So Clean”, and more of the chart-topping, head-busting music for you to rock yo hips and swing them bows to.

According to the group, Flossin’ Season Is Over not only represents the next plateau for the group artistically speaking, but it also serves as a big fat smack in the face to the Major Labels, and Commercial Radio who were waiting on the D-Boyz downfall. This record says emphatically that it isn’t gonna happen.

“So Clean” is a song that stands out on Flossin’ Season Is Over. Using a sample from the classic O-Jays song “Backstabbers,” the smoothed out R&B-tinged song is bound to be one of the biggest tracks on the album and no doubt will take the D-Boyz to the next plateau of success. “We really wanted to put it on our album to try something different,” says Smokey. “I did the beat and came up with the concept in like 20mins.”

But don’t let these smoothed out tracks fool you. In no way has the D-Boyz gone soft. Rest assured that there is plenty of trunk-rattling, angst-filled, bow-throwing club anthems like the rowdy “Who We Be feat. Lil’ Jon.”
