Biography

Besides the sun, adding to the heat in Baton Rouge is the consistent hits that Down Bad has been pushing to the clubs. The childhood friends recently snatched the title “Group of The Year,” at 3rd Coast Radio’s annual “Crunk Fest” and was previously nominated for “Album of The Year,” at the 2007 SEA’s. With “Keep Rollin,” and “Let A Nigga Thru,” Down Bad has performed over 50 paid shows in one year and continue to do so with their new singles “Out Da Box” and “So Whopped.” Both singles are currently in rotation at radio stations and receiving heavy hits on Youtube & Myspace. “Out Da Box has been going hard around here for a while, it gives you that true ‘Jigg City’ vibe with a gutta feeling. But So Whopped, that’s a certified cross over with a Baton Rouge stamp all over it. It’s definitely radio friendly and the beat and hook just capture you in the clubs. I think I saw someone in a coma wake up to that track! The video we just filmed basically narrates everything about clubs in Jigg City.” Since the beginning of 2009, the five artists have been busy with a minimum of one paid show each week and have deposits booked through the month of March. “We’re trying to set a record with our shows. And if you ask any promoter down here, they’ll tell you, we’re worth the fee. You’re going to get a show when we perform!” Down Bad’s persistent hustle has caught the attention from Cash Money/Young Money, Asylum Records and Universal/Motown representatives. Down Magazine has also recognized the independent grind and has featured the MC’s in two consecutive issues.
With the support from the dedicated fans Down Bad’s, mission is to continue adding more hits to their catalogue, and expanding their cult like fan base beyond the bayou/Mason Dixon line. “The world is starting to learn a lil bit about our ‘Jigg culture,’ but they aren’t learning where it originated, so that’s leaving out its true essence.”
